I have really enjoyed this TV. No problems since purchased in May of 2003.
Just recently, the remote control will not turn the set on. I have to manually press the power button on the set, then the remote works fine for all functions. The "CH" above the channel select buttons on the TV is now illuminated when the unit is off where it was not before. The light goes out when the TV is on. When trying to turn TV on using remote, red light on TV flashes fast. The TV light on remote does this also.

Re: Remote won't turn set on anymore!
I had a similar problem with another type of TV set. All functions work well except power.
The solution was to replace the batteries, perhaps they are running low. It will also reset the remote which might help as well.
Hope this will work for you too.

When you sign onto Amazon. Search for your model (generation) Firestick remote. They do show several replacement models. Consider the age of your unit and how it operates before buying. We enjoy our Firestick but recently replaced it due to speed and glitches. We bought the Fire TV with 4K Ultra HD for $75. and really like it. No glitching, fast and voice control. Hope this helps. Please write back if there are other questions. Good Luck.
Many electrical stores sell generic remote control units that will work on many different TV sets. They have all the basics covered for a TV.
I recently purchased one for a friend when her remote failed to turn the TV on and off.
Not sure if this will help but, I recently put an antenna on the roof of my house. I don't watch TV much but wanted to enjoy some TV, but my remote locked up and the side buttons on the TV wouldn't work either. I tried changing the battery, but no luck. There's a broadcast station 64.2 that is locking up TV's & remotes. Here's the fix that a TV repair co. gave me which did break the lock of the station 64.2.
1) unplug antenna (not roof but connection from TV to wall)
2) unplug and plug back in TV
3) find a way via remote or side buttons to scan channels
4) Go to Menu
5) EZ Setup
6) Channel Set Up-Scan Channels
7) Channel Memory
8) Digital Set Up
9) Turn Skip On for 64.2 (Delete this Channel)
10) Turn off TB
11) Hook Antenna back
You may have to play with the order to acheive the end result or figure out a way to delete 64.2, but during the process you will at least unlock from being stuck on 64.2.
