Hi i'll be glad to help you with that, it sounds like the control lock has been turned on, if you look at the display there should be the words lock(normally in very small text) next to one of the buttons(usually the start or cancel buttons) press and hold the button for several seconds unitl the control unlocks. If you cant find it, if you could get me the model number i can tell you what it should be.
