TV went into Demo Mode (whatever that is) and would not respond to remote. Also would not respond to onboard controls. Would change from one input to another when it decided to do so and would power on when it decided it wanted. Called Sony support and got some guy that spoke english so poorly that I had to have him repeat everything.
Finally got supervisor to send out a technician. Will keep you updated.

Re: Sony KDL46V2500 LCD lost it's mind!
Unplug the TV for a few minutes. Then start over again. Also, if there is a code try the first/last 4 digits of serial and model#, then 111, 2222, 3333 etc and 1234 and 7890
let me know! hope this helps!

not enough info , if your trying to change the tv input , make sure you select tv on the universal remote first , you either need to keep pushing input til it moves down to your desired input , or use the arrow key to move it down to the input. some require you to hit enter or ok to select , others just wait a second , it should change. if your getting the options menu when your hitting input , then the remote is not compatible with your TV / VHS / DVD...
If you get the input to change and your successful , make sure you hit VHS in order to call a command , if its still in tv mode , your only going backwards , make sure whatever your trying to control , the remote is selected to that device ... Good Luck ..

No other way. You should have its remote control to select inputs. I thinks that I've answered this problem, many times before.
If you post any more, please provide the name of yours with the post, so that I do recognize you and not to respond it, and allow any other to answer you.
Here I see this problem is posted by some 'Anonymous" person.
Whatever it may be, you can't select the input to your Sinotech TV; without its remote control.
Have you find out if the problem is with your remote control? For instance, you are able to control your TV using a Universal remote control. My 32" Vizio TV had a similar problem, initially thought it was related to my remote control but in fact the TV didn't respond either to an universal remote control of my SAT receiver that I eventually use to just turn on and off the TV. I've found out that the problem was with a little board on the TV located at the left down corner viewed from the front side of the TV and that receives the signal from the remote control. I found the board on ebay for about $5, replace it and the TV responded again to both original and universal remotes.
I have this same problem, just started 2 days ago. Changed batteries in remote and everything - driving me nuts- now i cannot change channel or adjust volume! I powered off TV, took batteries out of remote, turned back on and now still stuck. I think we bought junk!
It sounds as though the TVs in a demo mode. Has someone recently been over and was playing with the remote. If so go into the menu of the tV set and look for set up and demo mode. Turn off the demo mode. if this doesent help call i-866-427-3946 and talk to the customer service deptartment. Good Luck
