Raise volume button on TV or remote just makes the volume bar appear, but volume won't go up. Lower volume button works. And raise volume button works in the menus... any idea? Used to work fine last time I used it (months ago) today I plug it, doesn't work anymore...

HMMMM....you have a bad capacitor in the deflection area of your TV. This bad cap will raise the high voltage to a level unaccustomed to the power supply. Eventually this TV will shut down. You will need a tech to find the capacitor or two and replace them. This will lower the voltage to a proper and working level. The remote or universal one, will not operate your TV properly at this time. A common problem for your Curtis Mathis. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support.
check your menu by pushing menu on your remote ,go to the sound/audio settings see if there is a auto volume level . if so, set it to about 60%. yoou should then be able to lower and raise the volume. if this doen't solve it call for service.
Have you used the remote that came with the TV to raise the volume? Often, when there is more than one remote, one of them is set too low and all you need to do is use the remote that came with the TV to raise the volume level. Good Luck!
Use the satellite receiver remote control to adjust the volume first. The receiver itself offers volume control and you probably have that turned down. Then you are trying to raise it with the volume control on the TV. This is raising the TV volume, but there isn't much sound there in the first place. Use the receiver remote, and you will probably see a volume bar. At some point it might say something like "best stereo" or a star might appear. If that happens leave the volume set there, otherwise just raise it all the way. Then control the volume with the TV remote, or program the DirecTV remote for your brand of TV, and the volume button should control the TV then.
It sounds as if you have inadvertently selected the 'Aux' function. Pressing the 'TV' button (should be close to the Aux and others) should restore full control.
Since the volume generally means 'TV Volume,' this function often stays effective but the other controls will not respond, including 'Power.'
This happens to us all the time with our Dish remote which also has 4 basic functions.
