    No none of them do. You reset by reinstalling the Android software as detailed in the link.

    Your television has an On Off button on the set. Disconnect the wall plug. Count to 20. Plug back in and within 5 seconds press and hold the On button on the set.

    Thorn is not a good make. Samsung is the brand leader these days followed by Toshiba, Sony and LG in no particular order.

SOURCE: 47" two yr old Visio

This is the second time I have seen this problem this week. Seems like a common issue on Vizio LCDs. Anyways the problem you mentioned indicates that the tv-micro IC has failed. THis is located on the main audo/video board and a component level repair is not possible in this case. The main A/V board has to be replaced and it should cost you around 100-125$. Would you like to do it yourself?

SOURCE: can't select front input without remote

I had the same problem, had a universal DirecTV remote that was able to control the volume/mute, power and channels (both TV and DirecTV), but the input button didn't work. There was no av/tv button on the front of the tv, and the autoregistration of channels didn't pickup the gamecube on the AV channel. What solved it was simply to press "00". I couldn't believe it, but it was that simple. Hope this helps you like it helped me, since the tv was not going to be of much use since we were using the RCA inputs, not the coax. Didn't want to try to conver the RCA to coax either.

SOURCE: Remote control code needed for this TV

The Insignia is-tv040919 is a Cytron and the code is 11326. But no Comcast multifunction remote contains that code -- so you cannot enter it manually and the 991 search function will not find it. I discovered the make and code because last year I installed the Insignia tv on a Comcast DTA with the small, black two function remote. That remote programmed quickly. When I moved that tv to the room with the cable box and multifunction remote, mayhem ensued. I got an $8 RCA 3 function remote today and it's working great on the Comcast cable box, a DVD player and, drum roll please, our old friend the is-tv040919.

I have a Samsung sch-r740c does it have IR capabilities

As far I can understand the cell phones do not have IR capability. You can check the features of your phone on the Samsung website.
Cell Phones

If you want to find out whether the phone can be used as a remote controller for your TV and other equipment then a) your phone should have Wifi and android / iOS capability and b) your TV should also have wifi connectivity and the TV supplier should have created an android/ iOS app for remote control through cell phone.
You can check the website of your TV / DVD/ etc manufacturer for any smart apps for remote control.
Alternatively you can use devices from other suppliers that can be used as universal remotes with cell phones.

My thorn LCD TV the 55inch 3D version is not working on the smart tv input it just says android on the screen no buttons on the remote work

Ok have the same TV and it did the same thing stunk on the Android screen, To fix this i powered of the tv so it was in standby then above the RJ45 connector on the side of the tv you will see a update key (Find a pin or small screw driver ) then press and hold the button that is in the update key and whilest holding it power the tv on. Once you see the android robot with his shell open you can let go and it will come up with a list of options, select the reset all user data files to factory restore then select the restart system now, once all that is done give it a moment to boot back up as normal and it will allow you to set up like the first time it was turned on, :)
