First check with fresh batteries. that does not resolve it If a universal remote- try a different code. If original remote, press the "TV" button first to make sure it is using the right parameters. If still not resolved, the issue may reside in the IR circuit of the set.
Lots of possibilities. If you are using the remote, try also using buttons on the TV to change channels. If TV buttons work, the remote is broken or perhaps try changing batteries and cleaning battery contacts on the remote. If neither work, lots of other things to try. You may need to set preselect channels, so your TV thinks there is only one channel out there until you do. If you are on a cable box you just need channel 3 and change channels on the cable box. I can't tell what you mean by "audio changes with the channel" ... if you mean that when you try to advance channels, it increases volume and moving down in channels lowers volume that would be strange -- if you are using a programable remote it might not be set correctly (try another programming code). The "blurred" picture is probably symptomatic of having the set on the wrong channel, and if you could set channel it might clear up ... I'd start with getting channels to change. If you need more help, give the brand and model of TV, say if you are using a remote (original or programable), and what the 'audio changes' comment means in more detail. Probably worst case is that your tuner circuit is fried, but don't assume that without more diagnostic.
There should be channel buttons on the TV itself, try using those. Also, you may want to try changing the input from the Cable Box. I am curious as to why the remotes don't work. Also, how did it get onto channel one. Did you get the TV used? Here is a link to the AV Science Forum. It seems other people have challenges with this TV as well. http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=745952
If you've got a digital box from your cable provider, your tv most likely needs to be on channel 3. At that point you would use the remote that came with the digital box to change the channel. (in other words, your tv would always stay on channel 3)
1. Mmanually turn on the device (TV, DVD, etc.)
2. Press and hold the CODE SEARCH button until the red indicator stays on, then release the CODE SEARCH button.
3. Press and quiclkly release the desired mode button 9TV, DVD, etc.). The red indicator blinks off once.
4. Press the CHANNEL UP button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the
device (TV, DVD, etc.) changes channel. The red indicator blinks once
with each button press. If you accidentally overshoot the code
required, use the CHANNEL DOWN button to backtrack through the library
until the device again changes channel. Pressing the CHANNEL UP changes
direction to forward again.
5. Press and release the MUTE button to install the code.
