Without the original remote or a universal remote that does not have a display button, try unplugging the television for at least 2 minutes and plug the tv back in. This should reset the tv. If the universal remote has a display button, depress the button until you get the desired display results.

Same thing happened to me recently. I tried everything from going to answersolution.com and RCA solutions... to NO avail. I brought an original universal remote and that didn't work. I went to radioshack and brought a RCA universal remote and hit the power button and it came on. I hope this works for others. RCA kept telling me that I would have to buy another RCA remote. Nope! the RCA universal remote from radio shack worked just fine and cost only $7.00.
The problem with universal remotes is that they can not fully replace the original, for example, on my remote you may turn on txt but can not turn it off, the only way is to turn off TV, and turn it on. I was lucky :) You must find the original remote, or maybe some other universal in
which you may have this option, you will not know until you try. Universal remote only a part meets the
requirements, I have not had the opportunity to find a universal remote that
completely replaced the original.
You can just try programming the remote with the Sharp codes they list in the instructions until you find the one that works. Follow the procedure for entering a code and try it. When you find the right one it will turn the set on when you hit the power button. The remote's instructions tell you to turn the set on to make finding the code easier (when the set shuts off you know you found the right one), but you can work without it.

You need the original remote to change anything in the menus of the set. With a universal remote, you can manualy change the channels, but you cannot sequence them or change any of the setups to have them work automaticaly.
All TV manufactures are like this.
Call the authorized service rep, and order a new remote, or find the original if you want to be able to use your set properly. Don't accept a universal remote, because this will not properly resolve your issue.
lost the remote?... try a different universal remote. i have a orion 27" but i think it has a menu button on the front of the set. im at work.. when i get home ill check and repost....if you dont want to buy another universal.. barrow a friends and give it a try... sometimes the manufacture puts updated CODE's for the remote on the website.. might check that as well. good luck.. more to come.
the answer to your ques is. go buy a universal remote control. since your tv is made by thomson
electric. (ge@rca)you can prob get a rca universal remote at wallmart or walgreens. you won't need to reprogram. it everytime you change baterys. after you get set to turn on and off just hit tv/vcr button on remote or select channel 91 or 92 (on some models that is your video for rca/ge) good luck doctordave
