You more than likely have a cold solder joint, and moving the tv caused the hair line joint to crack open just enough to prevent current from flowing. But before you start soldering, give it a good inspection inside for a loose connector and/or wire. If no luck, take a solder gun and lightly hit the largest joints first, which are part of the largest component on the circuit board. It has a thick red wire coming out of it that goes to the tube. (Do NOT touch this red wire or disconnect it from the tube. It can still shock you, EVEN WITH THE TV OFF. This is a very high voltage with low current and probabliy will not kill you, but it will hurt very badly, so just be careful and stay away from the big red wire coming out of the tube.) Then resolder all the larger chips, transistors, and capacitors. If still no luck, then resolder the hundreds of smaller joints.

I had the same problem with the volume in digital mode and found the answer here: http://www.justanswer.com/questions/1m0ln-sony-fd-trinitron-wega-tv
The actual solution is towards the bottom of the post and hard to read through, so I simplified the instructions below:
On your remote control (with tv off)
1. press Display, channel 5, Volume Up and then Power
this brings up the service mode (you will see some green text on your screen)
2. Press channel 2 to scroll through options until you see "Micro" in the upper left of your screen
(channel 2 cycles up through the options, channel 5 cycles down)
3. Press channel 1 to scroll through suboptions until you see "DIOF" appear under "Micro"
(channel 1 cycles up through the suboptions, channel 4 cycles down)
4. Press channel six until the default value (12:60) changes to 12:40
(channel 3 increases the value, channel 6 decreases the value)
5. Once the value has been changed to 12:40, press Muting and you should see red text in the upper right hand corner that says "Write"
6. Simply turn the power off and back on for the change to take effect. Your volume problems should now be fixed.

The front panel Tactile Switches probably need to be replaced. The part # of the switches is 23344507. You can order them through Encompass Elect. 800-638-3328.
Hope this helps,

I would suggest you try to find a universal remote that has an "input" or "source" button and program that one to your tv. By pressing the "source" or "input" button, it will change the input to the tv. I hope this helps! -Der Strom
