Buttons on TV or remote not working. Can only cycle through video input options.
The only button that works properly is on/off button. None of the buttons on the TV itself work. A few (volume, channel up/down) buttons on the remote cause the TV to cycle through the video input options, but do nothing else. No other buttons work. I can do nothing but turn the TV on/off and cycle through the video input options.

Re: Buttons on TV or remote not working. Can only cycle...
It sounds as though the TVs in a demo mode. Has someone recently been over and was playing with the remote. If so go into the menu of the tV set and look for set up and demo mode. Turn off the demo mode. if this doesent help call i-866-427-3946 and talk to the customer service deptartment. Good Luck

Here is the manual for your remote. You need to plug your DVD directly into the A/V ports using the proper cable. See page 4 and 5 for hookup diagrams. Then once your TV is on, push the TV input on the remote and select A/V option. If your DVD is on, you should see some sort of input. Your remote is not programmable. Direct TV, Dish, etc could be programmed to your TV, DVD, and etc. http://media.datatail.com/docs/manual/174203_en.pdf
Find the button that relates to the input you want to view. IE "video" "composite" "s-video"
Or simply try any of the input buttons until the picture returns.
Also try simply hitting the VGA button again.
If none of that works, please let me know the model number of the tv and the input sources you are trying to view.
There are a couple of ways to cycle through the inputs on the KP-65WV600. The front panel TV/Video button will cycle through the inputs. (This is near the bottom of the button cluster between the Volume - and Flash Focus buttons.) On the original remote, you use also use the TV/Video button; it's above the 1 in the number pad section of the remote. For a third party remote, you will need to find the code that will enable a Source or Input button to cycle through the inputs on the TV.
These are shown in the manual which is available from the product support page: https://esupport.sony.com/US/p/model-home.pl?mdl=KP65WV600&template_id=1®ion_id=1&tab=manuals#/manualsTab . (This is the Manuals, Specs, Warranty tab.) The direct link to the manual is currently https://docs.sony.com/release//KP65WV600.PDF . See page 14 (page 15 of the PDF) for the front panel buttons; see page 48 (49 of the PDF) for the remote control buttons.
Ok the brand of the tv is not as relevant as the particular model number as each set varies. generically speaking without having to ask you for more information, some tv set allow you to access auxiliary inputs without a remote by pressing a combination of buttons or repeatedly pressing the channel up or down button until the inputs are cycled. A lot of set also allow you to navigate through inputs by the menu, a menu is often accessible by buttons on the set. If none of these options are avaliable try contacting your tv manufactor and asking how to navigate the inputs Witout the remote, which keep in mind is highly possible that you may not be able to do so. Consider replacing the remote with a universal remote.
good luck and thanks
Questions? Just ask! Mr.Mike
Hey there, Cheri Torres with DISH Network Customer Service here. It sounds like you are going to need to change your TV back to the proper input or channel. If the TV remote is not working to change the channels you can also use the buttons on the front of the TV. First look for a button listed as either input, TV/video, source or AUX. When you press this button it will start cycling through all the inputs available, make sure to cycle through them slowly because it make take a couple seconds for the picture to come in. If you do not find a picture on any of the inputs you are going to need to try the different channels. Normally for a TV where the receiver box is the TV should be set to channel 3 or 4. Once you have found your DISH Network picture you will want to make sure to push the SAT button on the DISH remote so that it doesn't change the TV channel again. I hope you find this information useful and if you have any further questions or concerns please let me know. Thanks. :)
Try to see if any of these four methods will work. Sanyo TVs 1. Press VIDEO MODE or TV/VIDEO button in front panel or on remote 2. Press MENU , choose FEATURE SETUP, then choose either VIDEO MODE or TV/AV, select VIDEO or AV 3. Press TV/AV or INPUT SELECT on remote 4. Press SETUP, choose TV/AV, switch to AV
Most analog tv,u just reqiure pushing the tv manual button channel up a few times,tv will go into video modes like 1 or 2 for play video devices.If this doen't work,try website like Remotes.com to buy an original remote.
If you have its original remote control you can unlock its parential settings and reset it. Then only you can watch other channels also. I'm ver sorry to say that if you lost your TVs remote control, you will be unable to unlock it. Try to get a remote from any of your friends who owns the same model number RCA TV. If you are able to get it, do the following with that remote, and reset the V-chip. Try to purchase one new remote control from RCA.
Most RCA and GE TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset is different depending on the model. Try each number until you find the one that works for you.
Hold down the MENU button on the remote and VOLUME DOWN button on the TV it's self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
Hold down the 0 (zero) button on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN button on the TV itself at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
Hold down the MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. 4- Hold down GO BACK button on the remote and MENU button on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
Hold down EJECT button on the front of the TV set and the MENU button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. Depending on the model, one of the methods should unlock the V-chip. Now, if desired, you can change the settings on the V-chip by going to the MENU and going to PARENTAL CONTROLS, or on some sets, going to MENU and then going to TV SETUP, then to V-CHIP SET.
Tries the channels + or - buttons a couples times on the tv manual controls buttons on the tv.U will get in the input option.This solution work for many tvs don't the input option on their universal remotes,without the original remotes.Ur tv don't know.
