Solved..... All that I tried was a Ir remote. I used to use the usb power to power the express. I plugged the usb to outlet and all is working fine. USB power worked for months and all of the sudden no Ir reception. Weird.

Any of these IR remotes have a tv power key and volume keys? That would mean they're either Roku tv IR remote or Wifi Roku remotes, which won't work on a express at all the roku tv remote, or needs to be paired.
