You know, there was one odd instance to which I was plugging A/V Cables in the back of my old JVC Television, one time I insterted them a bit too hard and the Input of the television changed from Video 1 to Video 2... Maybe you could try that? Seems like a ghetto way. But hey...

try channel 00. that used to put my old rca into video mode
You could pick up a universal remote that has Emerson codes programmed in it.

You don't have a VCR, DVD player, receiver, DVR, etc remote anywhere in the house that can also be used to control a TV? Even my 10 year old mono VCR has a remote that can control my TV.

Try hitting both volume up and volume down at the same time.
Oh, and target has universals starting at $7. Just pick one up.
