It appears the remote sensor in the Television itself has stopped working. If the TV is still under warranty I would try to contact the manufacturer to see what they can do for you. Can you still change channels manually? If so, this is most likely the case.

A lot of the new televisions today come with remotes that have to be re-programmed after the batteries are changed. I would contact the television's manufacture and find out if the re-mote, the television, or both have to be re-programmed.

Refuses to work

you are going to have to try a new universal remote because that one is not capable of programming to your tv. not all universals will work. trial and error. your best option sense you need to purchase a new remote is to go to and search my your TV model number and purchase the original equipment manufactured remote for your tv. Good news you wont have to program it either. and it will work your menu functions.

Remote will no longer work

Your best bet is to buy a universal remote that would work with your model television or a replacement remote from your manufacturer.

This one is pretty cheap (and may be your exact remote?)

You could probably buy a universal remote cheaper at walmart or target, but the cost savings will cost you the time and hassle to program the remote (and if you buy a universal, you must make sure it works with emerson TVs).

LCD TV Remote quit working

First thing, turn off the TV and unplug it for about 2-3 minutes. Remove also the batteries on your remote. Re-install the batteries on the remote and plug in your TV. Power on your TV using the remote. No luck?
Norcent may not be supported by a universal remote. If you just bought your unit new (maybe Best Buy who carries this brand) you are still covered by its warranty. Below are ways you can reach Norcent.

Universal Remote

Hey I have the same situation Go to MR and give them your tv model usually will have a new manufacture remote under $30.00 ( just add Batteries and it works)no codes to enter!) I think the Memorex is lacking on the universal codes Especially for the DVD/TV/VCR combos
