Do you have the correct remote? That would be my first question. But most sony remotes will change channels and turn set on and off. Do you have the owners manual? If i'm not mistaken, that thing has a memory stick input doesn't it? Try that and let me know what happens. Thank you and good luck. Jay

This is a common problem with plasma tvs You did not mention whether you could generate any sound like through your dvd player or something like that. Whether you have audio or not makes a difference on which board may be causing you the problem. Just because it does not have a picture for tv viewing does not mean it won't produce some type of sound through your av1 input. Try it and I'll try to be more specific.

Checking your remote can be done with any digital camera since they can 'see' the infrared light from them but I suspect the remote is working; generally, if they are emitting anything, it will be sending correct correct pulse trains.
Having the camera 'live' you will be able to see that the remote is working by aiming the remote at the camera's lens and pressing any button while watching the camera's LCD display. The output of the remote will appear as white or near white blinking lights.
> I've tried to reset to factory settings but when I've got into the service menu I can't input anything?
Often the service settings require entering some code (password) sequence to access factory settings and it may not be possible to enter the code if one or the other end of the IR system isn't functioning.
Summary; I think the remote transmitter is OK but the receiver in the set is not decoding the received signal despite it indicating that something was received.
I think the set itself is a fault and you will need a tech on site on in the shop to search for the right board to replace since the IR receiver may be part of the main board (expensive) or a separate assembly (somewhat less expensive).
