Check the infrared emission of the remote control first. Check it with fresh batteries. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, check this link. Pull up older posts there. One among it have details about how to check, repair and clean a remote control.
If remote control is found OK, and emits infrared rays, The fault must be to the infrared sensor inside your TV. But, if it has to be replaced, you have to open the TV, and take out the front panel circuit board, where this sensor is fitted. You can locate it just behind the infrared sensor window at TVs front panel. The component is a three solder terminal one, which will look like this.

Remote doesnt control tv

Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Clean the contacts inside the battery compartment. If rust or dust obstruct the proper contact, the remote won't work. Clean these contacts before you replace the batteries. Check this link to know about how to check the remote controls. If the infrared sensor inside the TV has damaged, the TV won't accept any remote control signals, even though the remote control is good.

Hi Keith,

First of all, thank you for posting your question here at Fixya.

My first advice is to confirm if the remote control is not the issue here and ensure that the fault came from the TV itself. Point directly your remote control's infrared emitter(Sensor) to your cellphone camera and then press any button key at the remote control, you will be able to see the flash of an infrared through your camera if the remote control is working fine. Watch the video below to have an idea how you gonna do this.

If you've confirmed that the remote control is not faulty, this is an indication that the problem is on the infrared receiver inside the TV. I would advice you to clean the TV's front panel infrared lens using a soft cloth, keep away all obstruction from the IR receiver, turn of the bright light in the room and check if the symptoms still persist. If yes, then the IR receiver inside the TV is already faulty and needs to replaced with a new one.

You just check your remote control handset for its infrared emission. There is an infrared light emitting diode [LED], in front of your remote control handset from which infrared light rays are send to your TVs infrared sensor, fitted inside it, behind the infrared window on its front panel. Infrared rays are invisible to human eye. We can check if it is there by using a cellphone with camera option.
Put the cellphone in camera mode, and place your remote control's LED side towards its lens, for about a feet away or so, and when you push its each button, you can see an image in the phones' screen. If it is there, and still your TV don't work with remote control, TVs infrared sensor inside is faulty, and needs replacement.
If there is no infrared image from your remote control, you have to buy one new remote control. OK.

What is a bad remote sensor

In all remote controlled optioned TVs have an internal circut section and a remotes sensor inside the front panel boad of that TV. The remote control hanset produces infrared rays of differnt frequencies, as we push each of its buttons. The frequency will be entirely different to one an other.
Infrared invisible rays are generated by an LED[ Light Emitting Diode], which fitted on the front side or the remote control hanset, and is directed to the infrared sensor window at the front pannel of the Tv, and will fall onto the infrared sensor inside it, and that sensor will convert these signals to digital format and gives it to the system control Ic to process.
The infrared sensor is a 3 leged element, which can be located inside the front panel of your TV, just back to the infrared window. It may get damaged, or may not get proper volttage. It shuld be replaced, if damaged, or find out the reson for the voltage drop, or no voltage condition.
Normally infrared failure is common. It is not so costly as you think, here in India we can get for about Rs25/= comes about 1/2 US Dollar. Ok.

My will not work with the remote any longer. I replaced that. When I manually turn power on, it takes 3 or 4 times before coming on. Then, it will turn off after about 30 seconds. ANy ideas?

There is an infrared sensor inside the tv to receive infrared signals transmitted by the infrared signal generating light emittin diode fixed on your remote control. Either the sensor inside the tv or light emitting diode in the remote controller faulty, remote function will not work. For manual operation troubles, check the wall power socket of plug of the tv is faulty, loose contact etc.

TV doesn't turn on with remote

The infrared receiver on the TV is probably dead. If you're handy or know someone that is handy you could pull the TV apart and get the part number to order a new one and try replacing it to see if your remote starts to magically work again.
