The digital over-air tuner has been used and working for 2.5 years now. It was last used this morning, and the set was turned off by the remote. Nothing has been changed or touched with the set. This afternoon, my wife tried to turn it on and got no channels or tuner feedback (signal strength, channel id, etc). I unplugged it for a minute and rescanned the channels. All analog channels were picked up, but during the digital range scan, the screen goes blank. Power off/on returns the set to analog. I called the JVC support number, and the service rep looked up the model info and confirmed that the set has a separate analog and digital tuner, then gave me the number for an associated local repair technician. I'm wondering if this is something I can fix myself or how much it should cost to fix if not.

If the set is an LCD, yes, it is "Digital" but that only refers to the display. To receive digital off-the-air broadcasts, the set must have a digital or ATSC tuner, otherwise the set has a standard tuner that will no longer work. If the set is "digital ready" a digital satellite/cable/off-the-air converter box must be used, and fed to the set's video input(s).
Did you get fooled? Hard one to answer. It more than likely was the result of the sales person's lack of technical knowledge. "Digital" and "Digital Ready" designations have confused just about everyone since "digital" was first introduced to television.
The HDTV tuner is out. Analog tuner, and video inputs work fine.

Check to be sure that none of the buttons are stuck on. With the unit off, press each of the buttons. You should be able to feel the button engage. If they all feel like they are working, the internal switch itself may be shorted in the closed position.
In the worse case:
It is very possible that the remote recieve on the set has gone defective. It is also possible that there is a fault with the processor in the set, and the remote signals are not being responded to.
As for your universal remote, I don't trust them.
Did you try changing the batteries in the remote? Make sure the new ones are actualy in good condition.
