First, change the batteries on the remote with e new set of batteries. Check to see if you can bring up the menu using the buttons on the TV itself. Let me know what happens

I've had my Sony Bravia 52EX701 for over 3 years. We have two remote controls. The main one we use is through our older Bose Home Theater System to control the TV, etc. The Bravia remote is also activ

Maybe there has been a disconnect with the TV recognizing the code of the remotes? Or, maybe you pressed a button on the remote that will not allow it to change the channels. I've done this in the past where I accidentally pressed, say the TV or DVD button, and when I turned the TV on and tried to tune in channels, the TV would not respond. Pressing the cable button (but that is on my remote) returned the remote to its ability to change the channels. You will just have to do trial n' error.

    It sounds like either the remote is bad, or this TV may have a "showroom" setting to keep people from messing with th TV while it is on display. I would download the manual to see if it mentions a showroom setting, if not, try a new remote
