I did re-scan several times in the last few days, but no KNTV.

I don't have a multimeter.

I've opened the 513 up.

The fuse appears intact and unbroken.

I can't find a RESET button, referenced in the link above.

Any help?

What's it look like? Marked? Hidden?

Bump.

Had to step away from this for awhile. Attempted a few more soft restarts since the last post, no go.

Any tips or precautions for opening the 513 up to look for other remedies?

Thanx.

Thanks wajo, but --- fail.

Though it was difficult, I took great pains to ensure simultaneous power button - plug in.

I held the power button for roughly 2-3 minutes.

Any other thoughts?...

Thanks again, guys. I've got plenty to resolve this now.

Been playing with HT for years, but never realized remotes got complicated. I just buy 'em, they work, and then last for years.
