Radio Shack sells an ir strip for a few dollars. When you push a button on the remote, with the remote aimed at the is sensor strip, you see a redish light if the remote is working. Good Luck

Television keeps changing from hdmi source to tv in the source screen

Some remotes might fail to make changes properly or cause incorrect operation if a button "jams" in a pressed position, and doesn't release; or the filaments inside the remote become dirty or damaged (sometimes from spills). Ideally check with a different identical remote with the batteries removed on your original so it can't interact with the TV. Also check if your TV has control buttons at the TV to test the tv and hdmi change settings. (Do those checks with batteries removed from remote). If changes at the TV controls work properly most likely the problem is with the remote control.

Remote doesnt seem to work on all the button can it be replaced

Did you check the battery of the remote?
Remote is jamp. Take the battery out and put it back. It will help sometime.
Did you notice the light in front of the TV response to remote control whenever you press? If yes, the remote works fine - problem comes from your TV.

All of a sudden my TV remotes do not work properly

Since you said that the remote that originally came with the television does not work either, it's most likely a problem with the IR sensor in your television.

To make sure that something more important with the television did not fail, the next time this occurs, walk up to the television and attempt to manually change the options using its controls.

Volume controls dont work when using remote

I would start by trying other codes on the universal remote. Sometimes codes will only work part of the remote such as the numbers or channels but not volume. Your motorola cable remote sounds like it may only need a good cleaning. sometimes when you take remotes apart it will look like somthing got spilt in it. I would start there first.

Remote Problems

Put new batteries in and try again. Sometimes the IR sender may also not be working properly due to a loose connection.
I would also suggest to open the remote and clean the contacts using alcohol. Rub the contacts on the key pad and remote gently.
Hope this works.
