Toss it in the trash. Any other remedy is beyond your technical
skills. You don't seem to even have the skills required to call a
repairman, contact sony, post to an appropriate newsgroup or even post
your TV's model number.
Do you have a set of fresh batteries in the remote? Then wiped clean the
sensor lens at the TV end? Then have to figure out whether sensor is
weak or remote os bad. There are many cheap universal code learning
remote in the market which will replace OEM remote. I use Harmony remote
to control all components on my home theater set up. Hrmony controls
everything with one touch of a button. Works very well.
I just got an RCA 12 or 15 inch at a yard sale last summer, for a
dollar, and it takes 10 seconds to 2.5 hours to turn on.
The remote works fine for other things, but because of the delay, I'm
not sure if it works at all for the on function.
The button on the set does this.
And unswitching and switching the power cord seemed to work pretty
well, but tonight took at least a half hour. Then I unswitched it
again so it won't go on while I'm sleeping.

One of the table lamps in TV room has a three way fluorescent energy
saving light bulb. When that specific three way bulb is on, the remote
control for the cable TV box is useless. Doesn't matter which table lamp
the bulb is installed in, the remote (and the cable TV box) don't like
Doubt this is OP's problem.
