Check the remote control for its infra-red emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check by pressing all the buttons on it; and see whether all of it generates infrared signal while pressing. If it is found OK, check and replace the infrared sensor inside the TV. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. It has details about how to check a remote control; by one among the post. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ If the remote control is found OK; check and replace the infra-red sensor inside the TV. Contact any service technician.
Check and repair the remote control. It sounds that it need cleaning. But lack of brightness to a Plasma screen might be to a faulty Z Sustain board. Check this for more details about the TV fualts, and to how to repair and clean a remote control.
If you are using its original remote control handset with this set, replacing batteries will poise no problem at all. If remote control does not works properly check the following.

The TV requires restoration due to jammed setting either because the remote control was damaged or power function buttons have been pressed too frequenly.
The following processes are recommended
1. Consider replacing the remote control possibly acquiring another on the market; for example, a universal remote could be acquired to replace the original provided with system upon purchase.
2. With the new remote acquired, perform a system restoration or reconfiguration; discribable
a. The universal remote acquired on retail would have a menu button where functions could be manipulated
b. The menu button once pressed should display options on which to select system reconfiguration
c. A system reconfiguration would reset the entire TV settings to a manufacturers default expected to fix any user alterations that might have resulted into a malfunction.
Once the entireprocess is complete, th TV should not operate undesiringly.
1. Do not sit on remote control or press several button at the same time; could cause device to alter configuration.
2.Do not situate TV at areas that could directly place pressure on power button areas switches
3.Do not attempt to reconfgure the TV original setting without first refering to the user guide or contacting professional technical experts.
4. Finally contact technical experts whenever necessisary.
I hope that you have gotten this resolved, but if not, or if you have any other questions, here are the codes and some simple steps to run through.
1. Hold down the clear TV button until all lights light up at the top of the remote 2. Punch in a 3 digit code (provided below) 3. Press the # (POUND) button 4. Try powering the tv on/off, and the volume. If one or more of these functions do not work, start over from step 1 with a different code
please follow the steps below with you sky remote:
RED + SELECT (hold these down until it flashes twice)
Try the volume button if this works then press SELECT. If it does not work then press TV again then try the volume ( repeat this step until the volume works. Dont forget to press the SELECT button to save the code to the remote.
This should sort you out. Please leave a thumbs up when you get it working.
Please follow the steps below to program your remote control to equipment other then your DISH receiver: Note: If you start this procedure and at any time and do not press a button within 20 seconds, the remote will end the procedure automatically.

We need to check the functionality of the remote.
Press and hold the up volume button, watch the light (led) on the remote.
If the remote is workingyou will see a slight pulsing of the light.
If it is not working the light will stay bright with no pulse.
Let me know what you find
I can assist further.
Try and reprogram all channels in the tv. Goto menu and use the auto program function to do this and see what happens. If this does not fix it then you will need to send to a repiar shop. The main pcb is most likly bad.
