TV/DVD Combo will not switch back to live TV when DVD is ejected.
I had the same problem with the same unit when I first bought it a few months ago.
First up remove the DVD. If the TV stations do not appear within a couple of seconds press the "TV" button (top, second from left) on your remote control. Let me know if this doesn't work.
TV is locked
Just like a few of your other readers mentioned, we pushed the button below the AV/TV button for 3 seconds and the screen unlocked. Thanks for everyone's advise, we were ready to throw out the TV.

Sylvania lc420ss8 No Audio On Channels We've had this TV for a while as it was given to us, there is no remote controller. What happened was the tv was moved and when turned on, only 1 channel had audio while the rest has no audio at all. Nothing was changed to it prior and it was working perfectly fine last night till it was moved sideways for cleaning.
We have tried all the methods people suggested online: turn on and off, press and hold the power, press and hold Menu (Setup on the side of the tv), unplug it for X time, unplug HDMI, unplug cable, etc. We CAN'T do the remote controller suggestions due to the fact we don't have one.
Does anyone know how to fix this without a controller involved? We checked all settings and sound, reset everything by hitting the Reset Settings in Sound (I believe). There is sound when the HDMI is plugged into the computer, but nothing on all 9 out of 10 channels.
