Hi and welcome to the site,

Initially, does the TV turn on when using the buttons/controls on the TV itself?

Offhand, there is a partial test to confirm if the old remote is working or not. With fresh batteries, point the remote towards an active digital camera. For every press of any button on the remote, there should be a bright light that would register on the LCD screen of the camera. No light, no infrared transmission from the remote; remote faulty.

Good luck and thank you for asking.
