We think something is amiss with the receiver part of the television. My mother (who's quite disabled) lost the remote. I have tried, literally 5 other Universal Remotes, that work on other TV's but NOT the ORion.
THe light on the TV doesn't even flicker.
Is there a manual method to ensure the system is capable of receiving a signal?
THis is to say the least, quite annoying, as my Mother cannot get up to change the channels or volume.
It's just over a year old and has not been abused.......so any advice would be GREATLY APPRECIATED.

Hello Thei Orion model Tv is not equipped with a digital tuner inside. There is only an analogue tuner fitted and only analogue channels can be received by this set. To get digital channels, you have to buy one settop box, which can convert digital signals to analogue signals. In short, a Digital to Analogue Converter should be bought, if you want to get digital channels. OK.
According to the specs on that model, it does not have a digital tuner capable of receiving ATSC signals.
You need a converter to receive the digital signal and convert it to analog so that set can process it.
Unless you already have a 'black box' between your signal source and the Orion, you have never received 'digital' signals.
The garbage on your unused channels are not important, just artifacts from signals not strong enough to produce a picture.
The 'blue screen' on #3 is what many sets use when they sense they are connected (terminated) to 'something' but not receiving any signal.
If sounds a lot like DTV's receiver took a hit.
If you have a second set you can borrow or drag to the receiver, try it first but I don't think it is your problem unless the cable input on it was zapped.
