This TV may have IR remote input jack in the back (the size of small headphone jack), when the external remote receiver is used, it will shutoff the remote receiver in the front of the TV, this jack has a switch inside which can get corroded if its contacts are not activated once in awhile. You can plug in a small headphone plug into it a couple of times to see if the remote will work again.
And here is how to test the remote to see if it still putting out the IR signals.
Testing remote control:
The remote control puts out IR (InfraRed) signal that human eyes cannot see, to find out if the remote is sending out the signal or not you just point the remote at the digital camera's Lens (Digital Camera can detect IR), you should see flashing light on the camera's screen when any one of the remote button is pushed. If you do see the flashing on the camera, then the problem is in the TV IR receiver or the main logic board; more troubleshooting with scope will be needed to look at the signals.
Plase post back.

If your TV is still under warranty I would recommend sending it in. It sounds like the receiver on the TV is malfunctioning which isn't something that can generally be fixed or replaced by your local electronics store. Your best course of action would be to send the TV back to the manufacturer with a detailed list of what is happening. Most major retail outlets can assist you in getting your TV fixed or replaced through the manufacturer if you purchased the TV through them.
