Remote Not Working
After operating normally for several months since last December, the remote decided to forget some of its tasks. It would turn the TV on/off normally, but none of the other keys would function. No ability to bring up the HOME page, control volume, change channels, nothing worked but on/off. Oddly, my universal Harmony One remote controlled functions fine. Thinking it might be low batteries, replaced those - no improvement. OK, does it need to be re-paired to the TV? No. Attempting to pair it failed completely - TV said there was no device. So this morning I unplugged the TV for about a minute and forced it to reboot. It then found the remote and all was well again.
This exercise was relatively painless, but I'm hoping that on top of the incident a week or so ago where it forgot its network setting that this TV isn't exhibiting random failures that will eventually render it a lemon. (BTW, getting the darned remote open to change the batteries was a royal pain in the a$$).
