SOURCE: I can't get my remote
It's unusual for these remotes to break down, but they often suffer from bent contacts in the battery slot.
When the battery is inserted with the tray, if makes contact with a spring terminal on the main board, and a spring terminal at the back of the battery.
First check that the replacement battery is the correct type. If the replacement is too fat, then the board spring has probably been flattened, otherwise the back spring has probably been pushed in.
Either way, its quite easy to fix.
Board Spring: using a thin wire, such as a paperclip or precision screwdriver. gently lift the two contacts from the back until they stay up from the board.
Back spring: using the same tool, hook into the loop on the contact, and gently pull forward.
This will ensure that proper contact is made when the battery is inserted.
Don't worry if you pull the contacts too far, because the battery will push them back.
In this case, remove the battery tray

This may be a fault with the firmware (internal software for the uPC), or it may be a failure in the circuit area or chip that generates the fonts and characters for the menu display.
You will have to send the set for factory level service if this is the case. If you give the set to an independent service center, they may have to send the set out on your behalf.
I would be careful to not invest too much money in to servicing a TV of this generation.

Try resetting the TV by holding down the "up" button on the remote (with the TV powered on) and then, while you hold down the up button on the remote, hit the power button on the TV. This should do a "factory reset" which will wipe all settings in the TV. There is no reason why the TV should not "remember the last input it was on when it was ;last turned off. Also be sure that the TV is not plugged into a switched AC outlet, like the outlet on the back of the cable bix. The TV should be plugged into an output that receives power at all times.
