Hello, In order to determine WHY you cannot change channels I need more info.

1) Was the TV working and then stopped?

2) How do you receive broadcasts/channels on the TV (through a box)?

3) What remote are you trying to use to change channels?

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
