Remote doesn't work. All pannel buttons either turn TV on/off (except the power button) and if a botton is held in it will perform the function until released and then TV turns off. Cannot even get the menu button to stay on long enough to figure anything out. Any suggestions?
TV is a year old and hardly used - in guest bedroom.

Tries pushes the tv manual button channel up a few times,tv will to go into the Video mode 1 or 2 for most of the analog tvs.Or look on the bottom front of the tv frame bazel for a manual buton said VIDEO.Pushes that manual VIDEO button to get in video modes 1 or 2.U have ur original remote have a button said INPUT pushes that button a few times to get into Video 1 or 2.
Unless the set has front panel menu buttons and the on-screen menu allows you to select the source, the answer is "no, you can't switch without the remote". If the original remote is really broken, you may be able to use an RCA-brand universal replacement that has an "input" or "source" button. Unless the original is physically damaged, before you toss it check the battery contacts inside. They sometimes get loose from handling the remote a lot and don't make good connections. Also make sure the new batteries are fresh and facing the right way.
drdye- this may be a simple problem,most people use the remote all the time and hardly use the panel buttons .Try working the panel buttons, press each one repeatedly a few times you may have a bad one causing problems. Let me know if this works,we can try a few things. cooltek Feb29/08
