My k2001um TV. Our TV only turns on and off my either plugging it in and unplugging it or turning on and off the power strip. It is always in AV mode it won't switch back and forth to TV with either the remote or the front panel switches. Anyone see this problem? I have tried changing batteries to the remote.

If you have something plugged in the AV, try unplugging that, and then switching on off etc tests. If that works and solves the problem, then the TV is sensing whatever is in the AV input, and thinks you want to use that first.
I'm not at all sure you can change this, except by making sure the thing in the AV input is either totally turned off, or unplugging it. I hope I'm wrong about this part, and if so it'll be clearly stated in the user guide some place about how to disable this auto-selection.
I hope this helps find the cause of your problem.
When you turn that TV "off" with the remote it go's into standby mode, that is the way they made it unfortunatly
To actualy make it not have any power going to it you will have to unplug it or plug it into a power strip and use the switch on the power strip.
They use the standby mode to allow the TV to turn on quickly without making you wait.
Change the batteries on the remote, point the remote at the Sony, and hold in the power button for 5-7 seconds. Then depress and re-press the power button - see if you can get the tv remote to respond again.
Then, always try the quick reset:
How to perform a power reset on a Sony® television.
Turn off the television.
IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.
NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
Plug it into a power strip and turn off the power strip as well as the TV. I've been told that newer TVs are always "on" - standby mode- and someone probably has a device somewhere in the near vicinity that is turning it on. (Or your cat is watching it when you're not home.) Or you could just unplug it when you leave.
