VCR's Input Sel

I've a VCR question...

My VCR's remote has a button called Input Sel, which I pressed accidentally. Now, the remote has no effect on the VCR at all. I can't switch channels, set the timer or anything.

I can't find the manual...what do you suppose the Input Sel button does? All I get is a blue screen now, I can't browse through the channels at all. I have tried pressing it again, holding it down, whatever... Nothing helps.

Input Selection (Input Sel) switches between the various imputs: TV tuner, A/V Front, A/V Rear, or whatever input hook ups you have available. Pressing the button again should cycle through the available imputs and eventually end back at tv tuner, otherwise look for a button related to TV or tuner.

Thanks...this is pretty much what I thought it meant. However the problem is it seems to now refuse any and all input from the remote. The unit won't even power off when I press the remote's power button. Nada. This started right after the Input Sel mistake, and I've never had any trouble with the remote or the VCR before.

I hope it's not the software. I've come across that twice before with other makes and models. I really hope so, because now that I think about it, I believe the warranty on this thing expired just 4 weeks ago.

I wouldn't think the input would make it not respond to the remote. This may sound stupid, but did you try new batteries? Anyway, there should be a corresponding button on the VCR that would cycle through the input channels.

Very weird. It should, theoretically, cycle through all inputs. The fact that it's showing blue means it is currently working and raeding a null signal on at least one of the inputs. Hmmm.. Two things to try. One: I'm with cadwiz: new batteries. Second, Unplug the unit for at least five minutes. Let the capacitors bleed out. Then plyug it in again. There is a chance that the unit should default to the regular tuner and you'll be back in business. Let us know how it works!
