When the tv is turned on, it used to switch between the input channels then run through the channels all together, then it stopped, now it just stays on the dvd screen and a remote will not work with it

Most tvs won't let you switch to imput without the remote, you could try looking under the menu on the tv but if it not there then I would suggest you buy a universal remote. Or a lot of cable remotes allow you to program them to the tv.
Usually if you go into the setup menu, there is an option to allow you to either "scan" for a channel, or "input" a channel. In this case, select "input" and see if the TV will allow you to press the up and down channel buttons and go to a specific channel. If so, when you get to channel 4, press the "add this channel" option (or whatever the menu option says) and you should then be able to go to channel 4 using the buttons on the front without skipping over it.
A universal remote in most cases can not switch this TV into the AV mode...you can but a orignal replacment remote for your TV At www.remotes.com and then you can use all the functions again!
That will fix ya!

Mentor, sounds like it`s wired incorrectly or your using RCA cables (yellow, red, white ends) out of the vcr into the tv, If your using RCA cables the tv`s "input" (on the remote) has to be switched to "video input 1 or 2" etc to see the vcr tape. If you want to see the vcr`s picture on channel 3/4 you have to tell me if your using a cable or sattelite box and then I can tell you how to wire it with the coax cable, let me know, BMW Rider
If there is no input button on the tv itself to change the input then you will most likly need a remote. so you can get a universal remote and follow the instructions to adapt it to your set then you can use it to change the input. (you can get a universasl remote for like 10$) hope it helped
How old is this set? some of the late 90's early 2ks had issues with the Gemstar module, then you also said that you unplugged the buttons, if unplugging the buttons fixed your problem, you probably have contamination in the buttons and they are $2 switches, I would replace all 8 (if you have 8) as I do in some of the CTC169 Chassis televisions, depends upon your level of expertise and such. This set has the Guide+ system and I think that you might have a Gemstar issue still, it is a little 2" square box that has 2 ribbon cables that plug into it, and is fairly easily replaceable.
From the manual (search Google for CM27101S):
Normally, your TV displays the signal coming through the antenna terminal. However, If you?ve
connected another component to your TV(such as a VCR) using the Video/Audio input, you will
want to be able to view the signal from the component.
To do this, you will need to switch from the ? TV ? input to the ? Line1, Line2 ? Input, as follows:
1 With the TV on, press the MENU button twice, then ? Set-Up ? menu will appear.
2 Use the WCHVbuttons to select ? Input ?.
3 Press the CVOLB buttons to change from ? TV ? to ? Line1, Line 2 ?.
4 Wait 10 seconds, or press the MENU button to return to normal TV viewing.
