I have a 32 in. hdtv iLOTelevision and Its stuck in composition mode the remote will not change the mode nor, button on top of the TV. The screen is blue. I brought the TV from Wal-mart on sale for half price. I guess I pay the price. The TV is less than a year old. One repair man made it seem like it would be impossible to get it fix.
The simpliest solution is always the best - I called the cable service provider; they reported an outage and quickly remedied the situation - but also tried to sell me their digital TV package. Thanks for your response.

Mar 10, 2015 - If you are connecting your cable or satellite box using an HDMI cordyou will ... You just need to change the input of your TV then scan for channels. ... Except the Vizio TV will not receive a channel that all the other TVs get.
Did the TV's source get changed? If you use the Television remote and find the source or input button which switches between the video sources for your TV such as HDMI, A/V, Television Tuner,, VGA connector or Component video. If your using a cable box that remote only controls the cable box and possibly the TV power and volume but the cable box remote does not change the source input of the TV. Most Cable boxes rebroadcast their video on a specific TV channel and your TV must be set to that channel to receive the signal from the cable box. Let me know if this helps you out.
The post is a little unclear, but I will assume you are attempting to say that your remote works with the cable box but not the television.
If you are using the remote that came with the cable box, you will probably need to re-program it using the codes in the back of the cable box manual. If you are using a universal remote, you will still have to re-program it, but those codes are in the manual for the universal remote.
If you cannot find a code in the books, there is an alternate method of programming the remotes using a search function. The exact steps will be available in the respective remote manual.
any universal remote would work but hte hitachi remote for that model is expensive i suggest buying a logitec harmony universal remote for around 40 bucks from amazon. you plug it into you computer and just type your model number in it will install all the original options to this remote plus allow extra features such as activities where it can change the channel on your tv and turn your cable box on and let you change volume on your sound system without the hassle of having to use different remotes. and without having to hit different buttons i.e cable button to change channel and tv button for remote it will do it automatically
You would need to look up how to program that remote to your specific tv. I would look up the owners manual if you dont have it for the remote...and follow the instructions for it. However, you will have to directly use the tv to program it to the cable. The universal remote will only change the channels and volume for you. Use your menu button to bring it up, make sure its set to cable and not antenna, and use your channel + and - to navigate through the menu and vol + to select your option
The remotes have several device keys at the top of the remote. They have abbreviations like "VCR", "DVD", "TV", "CBL". By default some actions are locked into a specific key. By default, the volume buttons will always control the TV volume and the channel buttons will always change channels on a digital box.
If you have a digital box, and the channels wont change, the default locks might have been removed. Consult the instruction manual that came with the remote and re-lock the buttons to the correct device key. Otherwise you will need to press the "tv" button when trying to change volume and the "cbl" button when trying to change channels.
If you do NOT have a cable box and are just simply trying to use the universal remote as a primary remote, you will need to unlock the global channel lock. Consult the manual for the remote or check online for the remote guide. The Company which makes the remotes is called Universal Electronics and you can find digital copies of their manuals on the Brighthouse Websites.
You may be able to program your cable box remote to control your TV in addition to your cable box. When they initially set up your cable box they probably left a pamphlet giving you instructions on how to program your remote. I'm not sure why you can't change the TV channels manually but this may give you a work-around.
