Technician's Assistant: What device or product does this involve?

Sure no problem.

Here it is ;

Open the tv`s menu and go to FEATURES , open that and go to LOCATION , open that and set it to HOME and you`re done

Unfortunately none of the buttons work. Don't have a remote either.

You can`t open the menu with the buttons on the tv ??

No. it displays the flashing colors despite everything.
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
The TV only comes on when plugged in. And immediately displays the colors.

OK then this is not the demo you have now but your tv went into self test

This is not good and there is very little chance you will be able to get it out of it with the remote that i could find for you and zero chance without it

You could try this but don`t hold your breath ;

Unplug the TV's power cord and hold the power button directly on the tv ,keep holding it for 20 secs or so then let the tv sit unplugged for a couple of minutes before you try it again.
