First, make sure that the source is set to TV. (Use the TV button at the top left of the remote to ensure that the TV is being controlled by the remote. The Source button is the one to the right of the Power button on the remote. It's the top button on the side of the TV. ) Next press Menu. (On the remote, it's the button to the upper left of the arrow keys. It's the second button from the top on the TV side panel.) Use the Up/Down arrow keys to navigate to Channel. Press Enter. (Note: the channel buttons at the bottom of the side panel buttons match the Up/Down arrows of the remote. The Source button on the TV is the Enter key.) Press Enter again and use the Up/Down arrow keys to highlight your country. Press Enter. Navigate to Auto Store and press Enter twice. Wait for the TV to go through the channels and test for signal.

You can also add channels manually by using the Manual Store option. If you know the channel number, you would then choose Channel and select C (over-the-air) or S (cable) and then the Right arrow key. Use the arrow keys to highlight the desired channel. Press Enter. Use the arrow keys to select Store and press Enter again. Otherwise choose Search. Use the Up/Down arrows to select a channel. Press Enter, go to Store and press Enter again. Repeat this for each channel.

The manual for the LE26R73BD is available on the support page: . The current link to the manual is

I hope this helps. If you use a set top box with a non-RF coaxial cable output to the TV, the channel option will not be available.

Probably the power supply needs to be replaced. "Resetting" is unlikely to work.

Depends on the media receiver and on the tv.
The modern way with digital media is to hook up using a hdmi lead but older tv sets don't have hdmi sockets, unfortunately modern media receivers don't provide analogue outputs.

With a modern tv it is sometimes necessary to select the input to be used from an onscreen menu.

It is impossible to unlock it, without its original remote control. No universal remote control will go. If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability? Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the site Check this site too. Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops; and by Online shopping

Hold down the menu button on the top or side of your TV for at least approximately 10-15 seconds and the screen menu will show up on the TV's screen asking you to enter the time, date and location settings. Follow the onscreen instrucitons, and once done your TV will reset to factory settings.You guys could call a TV repair person to have a look at it.Or it might be dead now and need a new TV.

HI there do check all circuit boards in back cover for any blown fuses or other electronic components , If all good then you will have to remove LCD screen to test LED lights . switch TV on from standby mode and shine a LED torch onto screen with room completely dark if ICONS do display ,Then i wood recommend for you start off checking your power supply circuit board or driver board . A easy way of checking if LED lights are working again in a dark room with TV switched on look through back cover vent holes for any light shinning through small openings this would determine if some or all back LED lights are blown.
