We have a Panasonic TV, it's about 5 years old now, and we've been using a universal remote with it, our VCR, DVD player, etc. All the other gadgets still respond to the remote, but the TV won't respond to this or to the original remote that came with it.
Is this likely to be repairable? Will I ever find anyone willing to do it? Or is the TV bound for someone who needs the exercise of getting up to press the buttons?
Re: Panasonic Television no longer responds to remote
If the replacement remote control works, than the origional unit needs repairing. the problem is,to find a tech that will fix it. check the internet for a new control from panasonik or the sydney telephone book hstrecke.bigpond.net.au

Try Remotes.com to buy the original remote,will never worries about codes again.This tv was manufacturer by some small company for Disney corporation,that why very hard to get the universal codes to when the tv is old.
The remote control is the one which emits infrared, the tv is just an infrared receiver. first of all, check the infrared in your remote control. To see this infrared beam, read the related article at: http://www.unique-stuff.co.cc/fixing_remote_control_check_infrared.html
I determined that the Philco Remote Control that I wanted to program for use on a Magnavox tv was too old (20+ Years) and dead. It also did not have the features of a new Universal Remote. So, I tosed the Philco remote and purchased a new Universal Remote Control.
Try to locate the line of sight sensor on your TV that does not respond to the remote. The lack of response indicates that the sensor on the TV needs to be cleaned. It does not take much (dust, wax, cleaner residue) to block the signal.
Remote problem could arise from either tv or remote. First check your universal remote on some other tv and if it is okay your tv's infrared sensor has stopped working. You can get it from the local component shops, take the existing sensor with you. This problem could be from the micro processor in rare cases. Best of luck.
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.
Check whether the remote control is working properly or not by using remote checker. Even if it is the universal remote control you have to set the code for the particular model. Otherwise it will not work.
