The remote controls (with new batteries) don't affect the TV. The channel, volume and menu controls on the TV itself don't affect it, either. Although the uup and down arrow buttons do cause the the TV snow picture to 'blink' (go black for a moment as though the channel is about to change, but then it just goes back to snow). In fact, I can't even turn it on with the button on the TV - I can only turn it on with the cable remote. Thoughts?
Someone suggested that it might be 'locked out', not accepting any inputs from remotes or the buttons on the TV itself - but I don't know how to override that (even if that is actually the problem). Thanks!

Re: Stuck on channel 2, "No Signal" and snow
Two things may be at play here. The tv might be only programmed for reception on channel 2 and will need to be re programmed to receive other channels.
Also try some basic troubleshooting on the remotes. Start with the remote that came with the tv. Replace the batteries try the "MENU" button. If you can get into the menu try to "autoprogram" the TV

The problem is on the board with the controls----if remote receiver is not on same board disconnect that board--if it is unsolder the vol and channel buttons--the front buttons have priority over the remote--buttons will look fine but the switch under each will be your problem---better hope it is as only other cause is a microprocessor gone mad.
If you have a Ohm meter I can tell you how to prove this--going to have to get at the buttons--if you want to prove it is or is not a issue with the micro switches you are going to have to unsolder or test them.
If you are using cable wire from your directv receiver and not the red white and yellow wires, you must have the tv to channel 3 or 4 to pick up from the directv receiver. Go to the tv since you don't have a remote and push the channel up or down button to put the tv on channel 3. Be sure the satelite receiver is on.
It depends on the TV a bit. Which model of Broksonic TV do you have? Do you have the original remote? (remotes.com has replacement remotes for many TVs.) Look at the TV (or the original remote) for a menu or channel add subtract option. (The TV is probably programmed to skip the channels that didn't have a signal in the past so you need to reprogram this.) If the TV is a really simple TV (with just the channel and volume controls on the TV), you'll need the original or a direct substitute remote (or a higher end programmable remote). Most basic universal remotes will control power, channel and volume but not the reprogram channels option (in my experience). If you can program the add/remove channels, press 60 on the remote, wait for the TV to go to that channel and then press the Add Channel button. Alternately, with the satellite receiver on, press the combination to search all channels and program the skip to channels with signal.
I hope this helps.
Cindy Wells (I had a really old Emerson TV; when the original remote started to fail, the cheap universal remote didn't handle the channel programming. Fortunately, the original remote would usually still work for that.)
I would suggest you try to find a universal remote that has an "input" or "source" button and program that one to your tv. By pressing the "source" or "input" button, it will change the input to the tv.
I hope this helps!
I did not get who the manufacture was of the tv but you may want to see if one or more of
the menue buttons are stuck down on the tv's front panel. This has been a common cause of
problems with Mitsubishi and Sony tv's. It could also cause volume to go up by it's self, no menue
functions, no power up and or no remote control functions to work.
Hope this helps,
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.
