Just a thought from out of date tv user. Make sure there is power at outlet. If you have cable or antenna connected, make sure it is set to the right mode. One mode is all the tv channels, another is simply a second imput like vcr, and may have a third mode for games etc. On mine, each mode is specific to a set of terminals (yell/red/wht) on the tv back side (3 sets of terminals back there with each used with one mode), if in the wrong mode won't connect with input signal. Switch tv on then find the mode switch and try each one to see if you can get a picture or even snow. May also have some auto feature that if signal isn't detected, it won't startup the big screen (so you don't get blast of loud sound and snowy picture), try a spare tv on the input signal to see if the input signal is there and working. Hope that helps.
I would check to see if the Input button is stuck on the front panel of TV. If it is not stuck then it is probably still bad. Tactile switches are notorious for failing in this manor. The only real fix if it is not stuck down is replacing the switch.
I hope this helps,
Two things may be at play here. The tv might be only programmed for reception on channel 2 and will need to be re programmed to receive other channels.
Also try some basic troubleshooting on the remotes. Start with the remote that came with the tv. Replace the batteries try the "MENU" button. If you can get into the menu try to "autoprogram" the TV
It sounds like a defective tuner or a IF module as well. It may also be a defective capacitor(s) or cold solder joints inside the tuner circuitry. I woud suggest to use a VCR or a TV convertor connected to an Audio/video input to change channels instead of fixing it.
The problem you're describing sounds like a tuner problem. BUT you say that you have the
same problem with A-V input too. That's weird!!!
Possibly the electronic TV-AV switching circuit is messed up and stuck in the TV (tuner) position. If this is the case you DO have a tuner problem and a switching problem too.
Change all the little switches (on-off, channel up etc). If just one of the switches is intermettent, or a combination of one or more, it can cause you moe misery than you can imagine. The switches are not expensive but can cause you to lose an awfully lot of time and agravation.
