YES THEY DID UNTILL I LOCKED THEM OUT . 2 YEARS
TV Technician: Tim Nolan, TV Repair Technician replied 8 years ago

I have pulled the service manual for your set and I do not see a control panel lockout in your tv at all. Are you sure that you locked them out or is it possible that they just stopped working coincidently?
