Thumbs up

Check for a new light source in the room. The remote is Infra-Red so the light souce may be fluorescent.

You can minimize the problem by locating the IR receiver port on the front of the TV. Cut a piece of black electrical tape the size of the receiver port. Cut a small rectangular opening in the tape running left to right. Put the tape with the smaller opening over the IR Receiver. This will desensitize the TV set and it will still work with your regular remote control.

Hope this solves your problem.
