The cat is not sleeping on the remote by any chance?
My set sometimes does not come on. The reasons generally are:
1) I have turned off the power at the wall.
2) I have not pointed the remote at the TV but rather at the DVD player.
3) Someone pressed DVD on my universal remote and that took it off the control settings for TV.
4) The battery is loose in the remote after someone dropped it.
5) The battery is weak.
6) Someone turned off the TV manually using the switches on the side.
7) The little computer in the TV has become confused by a user trying to switch from channel to channel before each channel is "found" and displayed to screen. You turn it off and back on and proceed slower.
8) The station transmitter is off the air due to power failures.

There are 2 options- Option 1 Connect the coax cables in the following order. 1 From the wall to the input of the converter box. 2. From the output of the converter box to the input of the VCR. 3. From the VCR to the TV input.
Here is how you record with this option. 1. Tune the converter box to the channel you wish to record. 2. Turn the channel on the VCR to channel 3 or program the VCR to record channel 3 this will record whatever channel you have your converter box set to at the time of the recording.
Option 2- (will not work on satellite) 1. From the wall to a 2 way splitter (made for digital cable. General rule of thumb with digital cable is gold does not usually mean good.) 2. One output from the splitter to the converter box and the other to the input of the VCR. 3. Connect an Audio Video (RCA (yellow/red/white cable)) from the VCR to the TV input. 4. Select the appropriate input on the TV for the VCR.
Here is how you record with option- Tune the VCR to the channel you wish to record and push the record button or program the timer to record the channel and time that you wish. Note- with this option you will only be able to record channels that you would receive without the converter box. Also each time that you split the cable line you loose part of your incoming signal and depending on how you house is set up this option could affect the quality of your digital signals on the converter box.
You need to isolate the problem. 1) Unplug the TV for a few seconds and then plug it back in.
2) Operate the TV with the buttons on the TV. (Channels etc) I presumed you have scanned in the channels. If no problem found then do this for the remote. Step 1- Pull the batteries out of the remote and leave them out until Step 4. Step 2- Press and release each and every button one at a time on the remote control until every button has been pressed and released at least once! Step 3- If your remote has slide switches, you must move the switch to each position then repeat the button pushing in Step 2. (When you're done, be sure to put the slide switch in the correct position to operate the unit the remote came with!) Step 4- Put the batteries back into the remote, being very careful to install them correctly. New batteries should be used if you're not sure about the old ones.
Now try the remote to see if it works. If it fails you will need a new remote.
take the batteries out of the remote...now check if you can change channels manually on the big screen.
if so the remote is stuck on one signal that channel u said. get a new remote.
if still same trouble on big screen look hard at the buttons and make sure none are jammed.
also try to get to your setup menu and auto-program the channels it should search everything and then try changing channels.
new stuff alot times plugs come loose, goes back to the factory workers...not pushing them tight
have a tech check that at your home.
