Re: Cannot operate tv manually or with remote
May have a corrupted eeprom which means you`ll have to call a tech, one thing you can try is;
Un-plug the tv`s AC power cord, wait 30 seconds, plug back in and pray, this will set re-set the micro to the default mode which may have gotten glitched by a power surge, hope it works for you.

The Hitachi LE49S508 red LED lights up when the TV is in standby mode. The LED will be off when the TV is on or has no power. If you haven't tried the front panel buttons, check if the TV will turn on when you press the lowest button (Power) on right side of the TV. If this works and your remote doesn't, you may have a problem with the remote or the IR receiver. (You can check the remote by having someone take a picture of the front of the remote when you press a button. There should be a flare of light visible in the picture.) If your current source is a PC, make sure that the computer is on and hasn't gone to sleep. Otherwise, the TV main board is not getting power from the power supply or not responding correctly to the commands.
Hi, try pressing the "closed caption" button on the remote. I hope that works. If this doesn't work try getting your TV's SE-R0305 Operating manual and reading through it and it might be able to help you. You will be surprised at how much information is in the TVs manual.
Some television remote controls have a PIP OFF button, while others only have a PIP button that needs to be pressed repeatedly until the PIP/Twin-View window disappears.
Some Sony rear projection televisions have a FLASH FOCUS button that will turn off the PIP/Twin-View feature.
Some Sony universal remote controls, if programmed to operate a Sony TV, can disable the PIP/Twin-View feature by pressing the REC or ENT button.
If the original TV remote control is not available or is not functioning properly, auto programming the television tuner orperforming a power reset may deactivate the PIP/Twin-View feature.
If pressing the appropriate buttons on the TV remote control does not work, then the PIP/Twin-View window might be from a two-tuner cable or satellite set-top box. If this is the case, use the remote control provided with the set-top box to remove the PIP/Twin-View window.
On the right side of the tv bazel frame have manual buttons,like a power button,like 2 channels buttons one for up and one for down and a Meneu button.Push the tv manual power button,ur tv should have power and tv will be on.Or try website like Remotes.com to buy a new remote same as ur original tv remote.
Did you check the batteries? If they're good, it might be broken, or you have the wrong remote.Try checking if its the VCR remote or the DVD player remote. If this doesn't help, then your remote has gone crazy.
Have you tried to access the menu features and tried to retune the stations on digital, or are you hooked up for analog. If you don't know about what i speak, give me a yell. [email protected] I believe my remote sensor card is bad. While this might explain why you can't turn yours off, it would not explain the blank picture. If the menu does show, i would think the picture tube is O.K. if the menu does not show, there are some other things to look at.
