I have a MAGNAVOX 37mf231d 37b. The remote controls (both the universal used with Directv and the unit that came with the TV) have stopped controlling the TV, unless I unplug the TV and plug it back in between uses. If left on the remote will control the TV indefinitely--at least 4 days. But, if turned off for even 5 seconds the remote will no longer function for power, volume or changing channel. It resets when it's unplugged and then will work again. It's not in warranty as I've had it for about 20 months. Any input on how or what I might do to repair this would be appreciated. I've read the user manual, and done searches online and found nothing to help except that it indicates it's the remote sensor, and if definitely isn't because of an obstructed signal, I've tried it from 6 inches in front of the TV "eye".

I would suggest you go here: http://www.support.magnavox.com/html/index_us_en.html

and download the current firmware and install.

Sometimes the firmware can become corrupted with interesting results. Installing the latest firmware may very likely correct your problem.

Hope this helps
