The remotes didn't work when we tried to turn on the TV, and then when we pressed the power button on the actual TV set, the TV came on, but was stuck on channel 67, with "snow" screen and full volume blasting! The only way to bring the volume down was to hold down the volume button on the actual TV set but then as soon as you let it go the volume "bars" on the screen go back up to full volume, although now you can not hear the volume. In addition, it is impossible to change channels even from the TV set.

Re: "snow" screen, full volume, remotes don"t work
due to the long time the buttons were not used, they tend to get stuck and this causes channels eighter to stay in one station or continou scanning. it could be resolved by spraying WD40 on the buttons and press it many times then dry it before operating the unit.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You usually need the original remote. The trouble with universal remotes is that they generally control only the basic functions of a TV (power, volume, channel) but not much else. Without the original, you often lose other functions. You can try the front panel buttons if yours has them. On some sets the on-screen menus allow you to access caption settings.
But are you sure the captions are coming from the TV? Sure, the TV is displaying them, but if you have a satellite receiver, cable box or digital set-top box, the captions may be coming from that device. This is likely to be true if the captions just mysteriously started and you don't have or aren't using the TV original remote. These devices often don't allow a TV's built-in caption decoder to work properly, so they provide captions themselves. You may have turned captions on using that device's remote. Check the menu for caption controls.
If I read your post correctly it sounds like, the remote no longer works the volume or power for the TV set. If this is correct follow the steps below for a Power Scan. If this is not the issue or the steps don't work feel free to contact me and we will sort this out! Power Scan 1.) Hold down the clear "TV" button on the remote for four seconds, then press 500 pound ( #) 2.) Hold down the clear "TV" button on the remote for four seconds, press the big power button once. 3.) Press the channel up button once per second until the TV turns off then press pound (#).
Try several functions Mute Volume and Power to make sure the remote works properly then press "SAT".
Hello!! It should be pretty easy to get this programmed. Below are instructions to program the remote along with codes. I hope this helps!
1. Hold down the clear TV button until all lights light up at the top of the remote 2. Punch in a 3 digit code (provided below) 3. Press the # (POUND) button 4. Try powering the tv on/off, and the volume. If one or more of these functions do not work, start over from step 1 with a different code.
or if that doesn't work, here are the steps for a power scan. The remote scans the TV for the correct code.
1. Hold down the Clear TV button until all lights at the top of the remote light up
2. Press the red TV POWER button
3. Press and release the up arrow on the remote about once a second until the tv turns off.
4. When it turns off, press the # (Pound) button
5. Try powering the tv on/off, and try the volume. If one or more of these functions do not work, start over at step 1 again.

Nothing will appear on the screen, and the Parental Controls will unlock, and you can re-enter a new password with the LOCK PARENTAL CONTROLS
I had the same problem with a Sylvania SRT2227S. I kept trying to fix it using the remote but after reading your posting I pressed the Volume (down) button, which cycled through the same menus you mentioned. Then I pressed the Power button on the TV and that fixed it.
The problem started for me when pressed PIP, CC, and Guide buttons on a Philips universal remote control. My TV does not support these functions and it seems to put it in this "service mode". Now I can fix it by pressing Volume (down) or Menu then the Power button on the TV (do not use the remote as it is useless when the TV is in this mode). I hope this works for you too.
