The micro buttons on the tv are causing the problem. Mine kept going up in the channels like you are holding the button down. I took the button board and clipped to prongs on the micro switch to the channel up button. It has three prongs on one side and two on the other that you clip.I use the remote all the time any way and it will not affect that. You need to figure out which one it is by watching the channel direction up or down. Careful of HIGH voltage in back of TV even unplugged.

ILO LCD Color HDTV does not change channels / volumn...just turns on/off


The symptoms your TV is experiencing is due to a power supply that is not longer providing the 5 volts properly to the circuitry.
It seems to be a common failure on these TV sets.

It's unlikely that a setting you changed in the user menu would have locked out both the remote and the panel.

It sounds to me like the micro has gone bad. One other option, is a stuck or damaged button assembly. Corrosion on the button board can lock the micro.

TV is on but the standby light is off and the buttons on the remote or the set will respond. Any ideas?


If it's a plasma try resetting. There should be a reset button either on the remote or on back of t.v
If not and if you cant acess your tv settings to reset. You can call Sears 24hr helpline and they will connect you to a tech. Who will help you..No it doesnt cost anything. Or get on web and look up a manual for your tv or just type in what its doing and you will possibly find your answer, but I think it just needs resetting and updated.

Tv says receiver is not on and do not respond to remote control


Hi Jackiewes928, I apologize for the inconvenience you have experienced. It is my pleasure to assist you today. I understand that the only channel you are currently getting is channel 116 and that your remote is not responding. Do any buttons at the top light up on the remote when you try to change channels? If so, what button lights up in red or green? if any button other the SAT button lights up this means that the remote is not on SAT mode and this would be why is not responding. In order to put the remote in SAT mode press the SAT button for 3 seconds. Once you do this try using the remote. If you need further assistance please feel free to reach me directly at kimberly.escobar@dish.com

Can't change channel using the remote or buttons on tv


Simple Fix

I had the same problem, couldn't change the channels with the remote or on the side of the TV. This was for a Vizio 37"

Here is the fix:

1. Turn on TV

2. With remote, press the Menu Button

3. Go to Antenna Menu

4. Select Auto Search
Let it search, it could take several minutes. It may not finish to 100%, mine got stuck at 79% for 10 minutes. It's fine if that happens, go ahead and cancel.

5. It should be done, your remote will work perfect along with the TV channel buttons.
