    Default Panasonic TH-60CX700Z stuck on HDMI3 channel

    This is the second time this has happened since I bought this TV a couple of months ago....

    I have my Chromecast plugged into the HDMI3 port - last night I quickly flicked a YouTube video up from my phone (too lazy to go hunting for the video in the YouTube app on the TV) and when I had finished watching it, attempted to go back to the 'normal' TV channel (HDMI1 - being fed from a TiVo unit).

    None of the buttons on the TV remote work - except for things like Menu and Volume. The Input Select buttons on the TiVo remote don't work either.

    I turned the TV off overnight, but this morning, after rebooting it, the input is still HDMI3 and the buttons on the remotes are still unresponsive...

    I don't recall what I did to fix it last time (I suspect some fortuitous button mashing combo did the trick)....

    Any hints?

    Tried new batteries?

    Does the TV have buttons on it you can use? my Samsung doesn't appear to but turns out there's a little joystick button thing under the front left that can do most things when I examined it.

    Odd that the volume works but the input etc doesn't.

    When my TV lost the plot, I rang LG and they said to leave it unplugged for 5 hours and call them back after that. I did, plugged it in, same issue, so they sent somebody out to collect / repair the unit.

    I'd imagine Panasonic would offer something similar?

    Managed to get around the issue (and now I know how to fix it the next time it happens).

    On the back/side of the TV are some buttons (Channel up/down, Volume up/down and INPUT) - I used these to select the input I wanted and now the remote is behaving itself.

    Thanks guys

    for next time.. :-)
    May just be the TV having a fit at whats plugged into the HDMI ports . Unplug everything & restart the TV
    Or unplug from the power & wait, rather than the semi-off the the Off button gives (its still semi on when 'off' )

    My Samsung occasionally has issues turning on with the Media PC plugged into the HDMI

    Tried all that - unplugged HDMI connections and totally restarted (at the wall) the TV. Including an overnight switch off (at the wall)...

    If your tv is online, check for a firmware update. Modern tv's get more updates than windows! :-)

    Good suggestion - that was one of the checks I did also...
