Question about Televison & Video
If the problem persisted, even using different remotes, then it is not the remote, but the IR sensor on TV.
There are three models with same number:
To access the sensor is necessary to remove back panel and main controller board.
Here the part for L40FHD41YX7, cost is about $10:
LED IR ASSY 40-0C5M19-IRD1XG from RCA L40FHD41YX7

I do not think that the problem is with the TV, but the universal remotes and/or the codes. Although they are supposed to "work" on the TV and other devices that they list, sometimes not all of the functions work on every device. Even though you have it sync'd to your TV, try other codes for your RCA and/or the "search" feature to see if that helps. Can either of the two remotes work any other TV's in your home? Are the remotes the same manufacturer? I have always had luck with the Philips Magnavox PMDVR8 - universal remote control which was around $10 at Walmart or Kmart.
You can also use a DirecTv remote as a universal remote (around $20 at best buy). My DirecTv remote works my Samsung TV, Sony Receiver, Samsung DVD player, and I believe is superior to other universal remotes. I used to use the Philips Magnavox cited above for all of the same before I got DirecTv, plus still use them on another Sony Trintron TV, Magnovox TV, Mitsubishi TV, Pioneer DVD player, and Toshiba DVD player perfectly. As I said even though the remotes you have work the TVs with the exception of the power on/off issue, try recoding them again with a different code(s). I hope this helps and good luck!
