Hello and sorry you're having problems. The original remote can be purchased at the link below for your set, for almost $80 (which is quite expensive). However there are other options that are much less money- such as purchasing a universal remote that supports Sony TV's (which most do). A universal remote will support all basic functions of the TV (channel changing, volume, Input, MENU, etc.). I will post both options below for you.

Here is the OEM Sony remote for your set:
