Let me know model number of your 60 inch LG tv to find out possible cause of no remote operation.
I do not think that IR receiver is bad in your tv. Regarding dusty IR receiver lens, you can confirm it by sending remote signal by very close distance to tv.
There are few other possibilities of no remote operation problem instead of bad IR receiver.

You could have a defective ir sensor on the tv, or the lens on the TV where the ir sensor is is blocked or dirty.

you can try a universal remote and if that does not work it looks like you going to need to have the tv repaired. Thus it would be the control board where the ir sensor is that is not working for you.

Let me know if there is any questions, please do not forget to rate before you leave. Thanks

Check on the back of the TV to see if you have a "remote in" port. It will look the same as a 3.5mm headphone jack. Unplug the TV and plug a pair of headphone into the port and then remove it. Do this several times to breakup any debris that may have gotten into it or corrosion that may have occurred in the port. If something is in the port it will disable the standard remote sensor on the TV.

Tv remote wont work even though new batteries are put in.cannot change channels or volume or even turn the tv off or on


Try opening up the unit and cleaning the contacts and bottom of the buttons with a q-tip and a bit of rubbing alcohol. Over time the oil from your fingers gets inside and creates a film between the contacts and the button so the circuit will not complete and your buttons stop working.

MY REMOTE CONTROL FOR THE LG TV :32LG30 STOPPED


Let verify first if the remote is sending out signal, point the remote at your digital camera, you shoud see flashing light on your camera screen (camera can see infrared light) when any remote button is pushed, if you can see it, then the problem can be in the Infrared receiver in your TV and need further troubleshooting.

You can get new remote on EBAY.

My sharp 32" LCD stopped recognizing the remote, b...


I had the same issue with my Sharp Aquos 52 inch LCD TV. I called Sharp. The tech had me unplug my TV, take the batteries out of the remote (TV remote not cable) and press all buttons on the remote (including the buttons under the flip top at the bottom of the remote). I did this, put the batteries back in and plugged in the tv and everything worked. I had gone 4 months having to use the surround sound for volume and turning the TV on and off by hand. This took 2 minutes to fix.
