Can a TV lose the ability to repond to remotes? If so, what then?

My five year old Toshiba flatscreen (not flat panel) about a week ago intermitently stopped responding to power on/off and volume and mute commands from the satellite remote programmed properly for it. It would work and then not, and then work again. All commands asked of the box itself such as channel changing and menu options work fine. The Remote that the TV came with also worked usually, but would not work at the same time the satellite remote was 86. Tried reprogramming remote using all six codes online. Original equipment remote now works not at all. (fresh batteries tried). And yes, cleaned infared sensor window.
