If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability? Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the site http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/ Check this site too. http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ Type in the brand name of your device in the search box, and press "Enter".
Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops.

If it is a universal remote control, you should have to set-it up with the set-up codes to your TV brand; after replacement of the battery.
If you wish to get more details; check the sites linked here. It has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Common codes to check devices with different brand TVs are given, in the order of the device's brand name list in alphabetical order. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.
If it is the original remote control to your TV, first check the polarity of the battery inserted. If the polarity have been changed, when you inserted the battery, the remote control won't work.
Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. One among the posts has details about it. Surf the site with patience.

Unfortunately, Protron LCD's are very low quality, mine went out in 15months. Your problem may be similar to one I had & I fixed it by cycling the on/off switch next to where the power cord goes in the back of the TV. Also make sure the power cord is inserted right since the "yellow" light indicate powering up but not full power. Hope this fixes it since I couldn't find ANYONE that services/repairs PROTRON brand.

There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc. Look for 5vdc, 12vdc, and 24dvc.

Same thing happened to me. I turned TV off. Then turned it back on holding down both On button & Source button & got the picture back. Doesn't fix it for good. But when it happens, I "fix" it the same way. Happened twice in last three weeks, I'd say. Better than junking it for now.

Please take this steps on how to determine the problem:
1. Open the back cover.
2. Check the power supply output...It should have 5vdc for the main board..12vdc or 16vdc for the audio and 24vdc for the back-light inverter..
3. If those 3 voltage supplies have encountered voltage drop...The problem could be on power supply board..
4. If the power supply output is normal..The problem could be on the main board...
5. If the problem is power supply you should check if the capacitors are bulged on the top and try to replaced it..If you can't do that you can purchased new power supply board..
6. If the problem is on main board there is no D.I.Y repair on that so you need to buy a new main board that fits to your TV..
Hope this solution will be helpful..

UNPLUG SET FOR A WHILE AND PLUG BACK IN (you may have to do it also to the box if one is used) This will allow the set to try to reset itself.

Usually with the remote enter the "menu" to see what options you have.

If all you get is the display screen when you turn it on--it may be locked there---

If you recently had a power outage or unplugged set while it was on--unplug set for a while and try again.

This is a general answer as description is a little vague.

May be just a bad solder joint (dry joint) which breaks connection after 2 minutes as it gets warm. You can buy freezer spray which you spray on to
suspected fault and as it lowers the temperature the joint reconnects temporarily and the fault goes away until it's warm again. The thing is to find the fault and resolder.

One example:
Ambersil Fault Detection FreezerA rapid cooling agent for instant fault-finding on
electronic equipment. Reduces component temperature to -50&186;C. Non-flammable, low toxicity and odourless in use. Ideal fault finder for use on PCBs, transistors, resistors, condensers and intermittent dry joints. Cools thermally sensitive parts during soldering or calibration. Can be used on close tolerance metal assemblies.
