Hello, Please elaborate upon- "does not work in an fashion"- Does the TV not turn on, are there no signs of life at all (no power light, etc.)? Please reply back with AS MUCH DETAIL as possible.

tv powers up. no volume control. no imput control. no channel control. box on back has flassing light. I found a way to change imput by holding tv menu button down until menu pops up and the pushing imput button, but that's all I can do with tv

Oh okay. I've got no ideas on that. I will opt out and perhaps someone else can assist.

Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.

Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.

Your tv is most likely locked because it was designed to be used with an integrated system such as LodgeNet, which used a separate box in the room and translated the commands via serial or IP. The tv is no longer going to respond to direct IR commands, and even the factory remote is not going to make a difference at this point until the tv is reprogrammed.

The ONLY way you would be able to proceed with the tv is to get the special engineers remote, which you'd use to access the service menus:
