This just started happening about 2 weeks ago. When I press the button on the unit or the remote to flip the cover down, none of the buttons are illuminated and none of them function whatsoever. With the front part still flipped, down I can use the remote just fine.

Check the remote control for its infra-red emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check by pressing all the buttons on it; and see whether all of it generates infrared signal while pressing. If it is found OK, check and replace the infrared sensor inside the TV. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. It has details about how to check a remote control; by one among the post. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ If the remote control is found OK; check and replace the infra-red sensor inside the TV. Contact any service technician.
i would think the button is activating the fob, or when you put new battery in is it the right way or you may have pushed something inside and its come lose off the board, it would need opening up and having a look, and testing the switch.
Have the remote tested either with a tester that most shops have or in a dark room with a digital camera the display will faintly flash when remote pointed at it and buttons pressed.
Also if button does not work (power) unplug the set for a while to see if it will reset. If the tester shows same problem--no working for power or have to press ******* buttons 99% chance something got spilled onto remote and got inside

I saw a similar problem with a vcr and it's menu years ago. It turned out to be the remote. If you can operate the unit without using the remote, try that to see if the problem happens again. If not, the remote is the issue. You don't say if there were any factors that could be traced directly to the remote (like the jump happened when you pointed the remote at the unit or pressed a button). You might also have a button that is stuck.
You'll have to do some experimenting to see if the remote is the cause, but it might be worth it. If the unit can't be operated without the remote, reboot it with the remote pointing away from it. Then turn the remote towards the unit. then try some of the functions. If it jumps to the suggestion screen, note which button you had just pressed and repeat the entire process. If a particular button always causes the issue, that's the culprit. You may want to just use the unit as you have been, rebooting as necessary, but pay attention to what happens right before the jump to the suggestion screen.
Sound like to me you got a problem with the capcitor inside the unit, if its under warrenty it will need to be serviced. If its not I ould be checking capcitors inside to make sure there not bulging leaking or otherwisen ot wroking correctly.
