I've run into this same issue. Although not a complete fix, I was able to program the tv with a basic universal remote. Try using the Goldstar remote codes. While I'm unable to use the channel buttons, I can change channels manually and turn the tv on/off and use the volume button. Again, not a fix, but a work around for now.
Did you attempt to program the remote with the tv? Is it a universal remote? If so, most remotes come with a list of codes to try with most tv's. Does the volume work? Can you type in a channel direct... pressing 5 for example? If those work but not the up/down channel, the remotes faulty. Or is it set to tv or cable?
Using the buttons on the TV, go to the setup menu, and scroll to "editchannels" by pressing "setup" button until "edit channels" ishighlighted. Then, using the channel up/down buttons, go to channel 91and press + volume. This should add the video input to your channels. 92 is S-video. It is helpful to have what ever device (dvd player or game console) hooked up and powered on, so you know when you are on the right channel, but it should be 91.
The remote is only programmed with only so many codes. Sadly, It doesn't hold all code for every TV made.
But you can try making the remote search every code stored inside to see if one of them will work.
Here are the instructions form the DIRECTV web site:
You may still find a setup code that works for your device by stepping through the library codes in your remote. The following instructions will help you do this.
Set the "Mode Switch" to the desired mode such as TV for a Television.
Press and hold the "Mute" button and the "Select" button until the visible LED blinks twice.
Enter the code "991" followed by the "device number"
for "AUX 1" devices - VCRs or DVDs
for "AUX 2" devices - Audio
You can step through the setup codes for this mode by pressing the "Channel Up" key to go forward through the codes or pressing the "Channel Down" key to go back to the previous codes.
You can try out each code by pressing one or more function keys such as power, volume or digit keys.
When you've found the setup code that works for your device, press the "Select" key.
depending on the tv, some tv's you can change the input by channeling up and down. others you have to push an "input, tv/video, source or a/v" button. some tv's have this button on the tv itself (try that) or try the button on the remote. make sure you are using the remote that came w/ the tv. (because if you have a satellite remote, some satellite remotes the input button has to be programmed seperately) the problem is not exactly clear if you could be more specific steps that you are taking to try to change the input to the regular channels. i may be able to help better
I went to add/delete channels in my menu on my symphonic and it let me scroll through the channels, make sure you have them all set to add (by pushing the volume buttons to make them light blue instead of purple)....after adding all of your channels (or just the one if you use dish) just power the tv off while on a channel and then power back on and you should have tv.
