Hello, I'm Shahid. Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help but need more info to troubleshoot the problem.

TV works fine otherwise. Good clear picture and sound.
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 5 months ago

OK, we need to verify the TV remote with help to digital or cellphone camera, it would be either the remote control or remote sensor problem in TV.

So lets verify the TV remote first, please click following youtube link to watch a video clip about how to test the remote with the camera...

Neither remote has a light in it. I have an apple phone. turned my camera on and pointed it to the remote laser. There were no lights.
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 5 months ago

Please use front camera of iPhone as the rear camera has a built-in infrared light filter and may not show remote control IR light signals.

both of the remotes are working. I can see the blinking infrared light in both.
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 5 months ago

OK, that means the remote sensor inside TV is defective that made TV unable to receive remote control infrared signals of remote control, replacement of IR sensor board in TV will fix the problem.
