Question about Televison & Video
You should first make sure if remote is really working or not or it is tv that isnt 'seeing' remote
if you point the remote at a video camera and look at the picture from the video camera you should see the light coming out of remote when a button is pushed
if you see the light but tv is not responding the sensor on tv has the issue. make sure sensor is not blocked by anything in front of the tv ( you can find the sensor on tv - if not easily seen - by using a flashlight and looking behind any red colored plastic or glass) once you find this sensor besides making sure it is not being blocked you should try cleaning the area where it is. Also try to make sure that the sensor is not being hit by any direct light especially sunlight or a light that resembles sunlight as this will affect performance.
if you dont see light try gently prying open remote control and clean the battery contacts with either rubbing alcohol or a pencil eraser. also try to gently bend the battery contacts in a way that they would hold tighter on the battery
the last thing to try when remote is opened up is to clean the back of the piece of rubber that are the buttons and also clean the contacts on the circuit board that the buttons would make contact with if they were pushed
if none of this works to fix remote you might need to get replacement
hope this helps
