Only if you have a source button on the tv itself. On many of the newer sets you have to have the remote to access your other inputs. Without the remote, nada. And forget universal remotes - they only provide for the most basic functions and video source is not one of them. And you get hosed on original remotes.
Resetting the TV If the
buttons on the remote AND the buttons on the TV case do not work (channels do
not change and you cannot open or navigate the menu), the TV has stopped
responding. Reset the TV as follows:
NOTE: Some TVs have a reset

the TV power button for five seconds. 4.Plug the TV
power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV. 5.Open the

I had the same problem and took it apart. Before the repair there was no "click" when I pushed the button, a clue to the problem. The on-off button on the front pushes a weakly made angle piece of plastic inside which had broken. The plastic piece in turn is supposed to push an internal switch which is offset to one side.
I used epoxy (Araldite) to repair the broken plastic angle piece, but it still looks weak to me so I switch the tv off at the wall and leave the on-off button alone (though it does work now).
Opening the case requires some knowledge and care, and can be dangerous. It may void the warranty so be careful or give it to a qualified repair person.
