Re: Not all buttons on front work

Sounds like the front panel buttons are your trouble,you can disconnect these buttons from the rear of the set ,unplug the set and remove the back cover,just below the top screws you removed you can look under and see the top of the tubes,in front of the middle tube is a small board,unplug the right top cable and this will restore the set,just the front buttons will not work,use the remote

Model ws-55711, remote doesn't work but I don't believe it is the remote control, can only change station up or down manually, cannot adjust volume or others manually...

If you can change channels with remote then TV is OK because it has only one infra red receiver (remote receiver) to catch remote signals.
So TV remote seems bad as it works on channel buttons only.
Here is an easy test for remote, watch remote front through any digital camera or even cellular phone camera will work and press channel button on remote, you will see blinking LED at front of remote while watching it through camera. Now press other buttons of remote and I'm sure that LED wont blink.

Tv turns on manually, but auto flips through channels and you can't use remote

Found this in another forum ( and it fixed my remote problem:

"'s possible that one of the front panel buttons is "stuck" or shorted, and this could cause the TV to ignore commands from the front panel or remote. But this should also cause the Power command to be ignored, too. You might try pulling off the front panel and disconnecting the front panel buttons and then see if the remote works."

Remotes do not work and front panel will not allow me to select input or change volume

I figured it out. It is, in fact, the front panel board. Disconnecting it sloves all issues. A contact in one of the tact switches must be stuck or giving an abnormal resistance value to the system. Once disconnected, the remote works correctly. I'd rather replace the entire board than try fixing/replacing a tact button only to have another fail in the future. I've heard this has also been an issue with the power button.

On most television remotes, there are buttons to control other units. If these buttons are hit by accident, then the remote acts like you described. Look at the top of the remote and find the button that says TV. Push it and it should start working normal. Since I'm not at my shop, I don't know the exact button or names. If this doesn't work, respond to this post and I will reply when I have a schematic in front of me.

Menu will not display

If the channel and volume visual display was not set up on the menu to display on screen , neither will show up even if either the remote or set front button are used. Make sure that the tv button is selected on the remote to access the menu .If that does not work ,then either the batteries are dead or the remote is dead.If it is you will need a new remote,sadly. Then you can press the m button , select sound and then select "display volume" and check "during adjustment". The channel display settings are found on "features" from the main menu. Hope this helps.
