As a home theatre sales person, i can say that i have had my fare share of dealings with new TV manufacturers. Although sometimes what i am about to say sounds a little abrasive, it seems as though youve fallen victim to the newly developing 'disposibility' trending in electronics manufacturing. You may have already tried using the on board controls, and if that works, try an advanced learning remote control to regain control of the functions. if the onboard controls arent working either, you could try to send it in for repair if its under warrenty, or look at buying a new flat panel. The avg repair cost on an lcd is 300-600 for parts and labor, there are many 1080p 40-42 in the 600-800 range.

Why cant i use any universal remotes to change the aspect ratio


Probably Not. Since most universal remotes will only be good for certain functions,i.e. Volume, Channel etc... not all the features of the original remote. You can try to do it manually if there is a Menu function on your TV.

Blue screen need to know how to scan channels to get input to come back up


Will need to know what tv you have, but you are right it is probably your input button. if you pushed it on your remote then there should be an input button on remote. otherwise you will have to go into the tv menu and setup it up there.
if you respond with model and make of tv, might get more info.

Tv screen has turned blue and I can't watch tv


i think by accident you have changed the input when you went to change the volume. look for a button labeled " input" or "video" select on the remote and scroll through the various choices. you should get your picture back.

Mintex 37 inch wide screen. remote is working however cannot change channel, input source or volum. only turns tv off. The buttone on tv doesnot work connot change input source or volume


Check if the remote is in TV position, that is, because most of the remote controllers have the feature that you can program them for use with another devices. Make shure that one button that says "TV" in pressed and released once before you try to change any function on the TV.
