You will need to get a "regular" Universal remote and program it for that particular model of TV. You will need to access the on screen setup menu for the TV and then have it scan the channels. Make sure your DTV box is on and connected with the coaxial cable. If the "TV Input" button on your DTV remote works and you can get it onto the Video Channel, You can connect your DTV receiver with the RCA Cables (Red, White and Yellow) and get your picture that way. If you access the on screen menu, you will need to scan for Analog and Digital channels as the receiver transmits in Analog. hope this helps.
go into programming mode and search for channels it will do this automatically to find all antennae and all cable channels if this is hooked up to a receiver box then only channel 3 will be found or used also most tvs are computerized these days and at times it will need to 'rebooted' unplug the power and wait 10 seconds and plug it in again this may have to be done whenever you are locked out from changing channels or using the volume controls
I came across this problem yesterday. Digital channels sound... Analog no sound. press the tv button on your remote to change it from DTV/TV
go to any channel you want. press the menu button then go along to Sound setup. In there you will see quite a bit. I went down to an option in there.. it was sound input or something similar. this was set to BG I changed this to 'I' and the sound came straight back on. Hope this helps you out.
I was getting a constant mono setting for all channels with no option to set it to stereo. I called Sharp, and they said that in order to receive stereo sound, you cannot use a standard coaxial cable. You need an S-Video or HDMI cable. This not only resolves the mono audio issue but also resolves the analog (vs. stereo) issue. Hope this helps!!
First thing to check is if the back lighting has just failed... Power the set on and looking across the screen can you see a shadow of a picture happening? You might even use a flashlight to shine directly at the screen while you look at it from an angle.
