It sounds like the Firmware in the TV is bad from what you're telling me. Try unplugging the set for 30 minutes, then upon plugging back in press and hold the Input button for 3 seconds. Then try pressing the button momentarily several times and see if the TV powers on.

Let me know how you make out.
