TV is ON....only ONE STATION. New Remote Batteries. Will Not CHG ch or VOLume

The 37" TV would not go on. I replaced batteries in remote. The TV comes on now, however, I cannot change ANY channels with the remote, OR go UP and DOWN with the VOLUME control. Recently, I must have pressed something, because I could only get a station when pressing the actual "number" in....rather tha pressing the "UP/DOWN" buttons. So...right now...TV IS on, but, I cannot change any channels OR move volume. Channel # does NOT come on TV nor does VOLUME "green" lines. It is "stuck on "ONE" station. PLEASE HELP??!! Thankyou so much. (By the way....I HAD pressed on some buttons on the right side of TV, when remote did NOT work. I wonder if I did something there? It is 11:33PM EST right now. PLEASE HELP?? Thankyou so much. SUE/Arlington, Ma. I am disabled, and TV is ALL I have to watch during the NIGHT. ANY "QUICK" answers?? Thankyou SO much.

    Thankyou so very much for trying....>I really appreciate it. It was a very good idea....but.....unfortunately, did not work.

    I called the company that has taken the OTHER company over, now...."MINTEK" has gone into BANKRUPTCY!!!! The other Comapny is called: Global Navigation...located in California.

    I was told by a TV repaoirman toady......NEVER BUY AN LCD TV.....they are "JUNK!!" They usually only last about 2-3 years! Not 20 years!! The cost for parts is HORRIBLE!

    In Feb. 2009....EVERYONE even with OLDER TV's can buy or rent a "box" to get HD tv! Yoiu do not have to BUY an HD TV!!!

    The Chinese Made ones, especially, he said, are made like "junk!"

    QVC SOLD THOUSANDS of "MINTEK" 37" LCD HDTV's. ALL of them will be defective at some point soon. The Main CIRCUIT PANEL in the TV is "FROZEN!" THAT is what the problem is....and QVC qill do NOTHING at ALL to help ANYONE with even getting the part needed for $135.00 from California!! Even though they no longer sell that particular TV.....and for good reason!!! They will NOT help at all, with ANY COSTS associated with the TV, because, even though it is 14 months old, only, they said they do NOT have to do anything...because the ONE YEAR WARRANTY is up! BUT...they advertised on their station that at the time....the TV would last for at LEAST, 20 YEARS!!! What a JOKE!!! They will not even "replace" it!!!

    Yes....I was surprised at QVC also....but, it's the truth!!

    Thankyou, again.

My remoute control joust change the volume and anyother keys doesn't work.

The remote's volume keys are "punch-thru" keys, meaning they'll work for the TV for which the
remote is programmed no matter what mode the remote is in. It seems your remote is not
in "TV mode," but the punch-thru keys (volume UP/DOWN) are working.
The Solution: change the remote from "AUX mode" or "DVD Mode" back to "TV mode", by
pressing the "TV" button at the top of the remote.

Either that, or your remote keypad has failed with the exception of the Volume UP/DOWN keys....
Also, your batteries may be failing, since it takes a tiny amount of energy to light
the IR (infra-red) LEDs at the front of the remote to change the volume.
Is your remote a "multi-function" remote?
Could help more if you could post your Samsung remote model number, since lists 37 pages of TV remotes (at 10 models per page).

Remote doesn't work.

Please replace batteries in remote and check.
Try another Sony tv remote or Sony dvd player remote that also has power, volume and channel up/ down buttons for Sony tv.
If no remote works on this tv then it would be bad remote sensor located on front of tv, its small circuit board that will be replaced to solve the issue and local tv repair shop will help you if you are not familiar with electronics stuff repair.
Hope this will help.
