Question about Samsung Televison & Video
My Samsung 60" projector TV wont respond to the remote and the DNIe demo screen is permanently on screen. Help! It responds to the controls on the TV but as far as I can tell there is no way to turn that demo off on the TV.

SOURCE: TV not responding to Remote
LG had a run of bad diodes in some of there lcd tv's recently but have been good about fixing those effected units. Tv's will not respond the remote and may turn on and off by itself and cycle thru channels.

Resetting the TV
If the buttons on the remote AND the buttons on the TV case do not work (channels do not change and you cannot open or navigate the menu), the TV has stopped responding. Reset the TV as follows:
Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.
1. Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet.
2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the TV.
hope this may help;

I came accross this question, because I've been looking for the remote code for my cable remote. I had originally put the TV remote somewhere in a box when I was moving years ago, Since my cable remote changes the channel, I've been doing the same as you all this time. Therefore, I totally understand your frustration on trying to understanding how to navigate within the menu: It's not what you would think would be a standard or logical way....
Anyway, in my research, I did come accross the TV manual, and I found the instruction on how to reset the TV. I tried the steps, and THEY"RE STILL confusing, so I've added my own hints....hope this helps:
Your TV can be reset to the factory settings in case you forget your Smart Lock password, or want to change the picture, sound, or features settings.
1 Press the MENU button on the remote control to see the onscreen menu.
In the left panel, you will see four icons (from top to bottom)
When the Menu screen is showing the left panel as highlighted light grey, the Chanel buttons have Page up/Page down Functionality
2 Press the the (CH UP) or_(CH DN) buttons to highlight the FEATURES menu.
Navigate to the FEAUTRES menu (icon of pliers and a hammer - bottom of left panel) and you should make sure it is highlighted in blue
3 Press the (VOL+) button to enter into the FEATURES menu.
The right panel should now be highlighted in a light grey
4 Press the (CH UP) or (CH DN) buttons to highlight the FACTORY SETTINGS control.
This will select items in the right panel, FACTORY SETTINGS in on the bottom
5 Press the the _(VOL+) or _(VOL-) buttons to reset the TV to the original factory settings.
6 Press the MENU button repeatedly to clear the menu from the screen.
The entire manual is found at this link: http://www.m4c.magnavox.com/files/1/15mf200v_37/15mf200v_37_dfu_aen.pdf
BTW, of any one know how I can program or get an RCN remote to use on this TV, please let me know!!!!

Change the batteries in your remote. If your cat was laying on a button it could have drained them.
Here's tip - you can use your camera on your cell phone to see the IR signal coming out of your remote. Point the remote at your cam and press "On" or any button. You should see a bright flash with every key stroke.

Unplugging my TV for 15 seconds (longer actually - at least a minute) made the remote and the satellite TV remote both work again with the TV. Thanks for the tip!
