Is there any way to replace the remotes that are faulty. Hoe can one
determine if it's the TV or remote? Is there a universal remote
that will work for Sony and Panasonic?

manufacturers sell original remotes as spare parts

most likely the remote. check the batteries. if you have any equipment
that will respond to an IR signal by flashing a LED point the remote at
it and press a button. if the LED flashes the remote is working

The cameras on old mobile phones and other such devices don't
have IR filters on them. You can point the remote at one and
should see the light from the IR LED when you press a button.

It's not a guarantee (the pattern it's sending may be wrong),
but it's a good indication.

The accepted method is to *buy one*.

Usually by testing. In the case of the one I replaced, a visual check
was sufficient. The Mrs sat on it and I don't think the bend it has was
a natural one. Electrically it still works so I keep it on hand. A new
remote is an easy and, dare I say, very cheap fix compared to buying the
OEM remote. Those OEM remotes are usually $100+.

There are heaps of universal *programmable* remotes out there.
As previously stated, you do need to *buy* these.

I bought a pair (because they were cheap) of Logitech Harmony 350
remotes and they programmed up to my German TV with no issues.

Here's how it's done; https://support.myharmony.com/en-au/350

Look on EBay for pricing. Usually sub $50. As low as $42 with free
postage. Hey, at that price it's worth buying one just to have a spare.
That's why I bought two. One for the Mrs and one for me so I can sneak
up behind her and change the channel when she's not concentrating on the
TV. ;-)
