I think if you just do a quick setup, you should be able to figure out if it works or not. Most failures aren't subtle. One that is the network card. Make sure the network is hooked up, as the network card can be bad, which would affect both wireless and wired, and I think the USB ports.
Try to check all the HDMI ports, that is probably the #1
failure point. Unplug everything when you switch the wiring, it's possible to damage the ports if you switch them live. I've never had that problem, but others have, so now I do it to make sure.
As far as I know, there isn't a "quick test", and I wouldn't trust it if there were, tbh.
There is a lot of useful information in the first several posts of this thread:
You may want to do a microprocessor reset before testing it, but check with the owner, as that will clear all the settings.
With the remote: SETUP - GENERAL - RESET - ALL SETTINGS
