It may be the IR receiver inside, but look at he back to see if it has a smll jack for External IR jack on the back of the TV, IF it does, try inserting in and out using small headphone jack to activate the switch inside the jack a couple times. You also need to verify that the remote is seding 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.

Try a factory reset:

1. Press and hold "Menu" and "Channel+" on the TV. (do not use the remote)
2. Using the other hand, press the Power button.
3. A small screen should appear in the top left part of the screen.
4. Using the remote, select "Memory Recall" and Enter.
5. Power off and reboot the TV and Computer.
6. Run channel auto-scan to regain the picture.

Batteries are good. However TV isn't on right channel to show any programming what to do?


Hi William,
To confirm if the remote control is working fine, aim the infrared emitter of the remote control to your cellphone camera, press any button key and check if the infrared will flash to your camera. Watch this video on how to do this trick.
Also, does the front panel button key of the TV isn't working?

My remote stopped working. I replaced batteries, nothing, bought a universal remote, followed directions nothing. Can the TV be the problem? Is there a factory reset on the TV?


it could be sensor on tv

try holding remote in front of a video recorder and if you push button on remote and view through video recorder you should be able to see the light blinking coming out of remote - if you see the light coming out of remote and it is still not working then the tvs sensor went bad

besides trying to unplug tv for a few minutes there is no reset for this issue

Panasonic 42 inch HD Plasma TV (2 years old) remote sensor


take your tv and remote to a technician to check on your emitting diode and a photo senser, both are working but not very sensitive. the components are not gone but about to go. if you remove a senser from tv it can not receive, so that senser is sensing some thing, also check an amplifier just after a senser plse do that.
