Tv turns on manually, but auto flips through channels and you can't use remote
T.V. will not turn on with remote. When turned on manually, there is no volume control. The channels automatically start flipping through channels lowest to highest, but you can't use the remote to control anything. You can't manually change the channel up, only down. You can't change the device without the remote. It's like the t.v. doesn't recognize the remote anymore. This all started by just trying to change the device mode to vcr, to watch a tape.
"...it's possible that one of the front panel buttons is "stuck" or shorted, and this could cause the TV to ignore commands from the front panel or remote. But this should also cause the Power command to be ignored, too. You might try pulling off the front panel and disconnecting the front panel buttons and then see if the remote works."

Just press the buttons on the TV randomly, sometimes this combination works in starting the TV w/o a remote. After that use the remote for the dish to flip channels, but you will have to set the sound manually from time to time.......sodeep
