LG tv, unable to change channel...can turn on and off and control volume with direct tv remote

As listed in title.  Channel is "locked" on ESPN Sports (not all bad) but cannot view guide or recorded.  The on and off feature as well as the sound feature on the Direct TV remote DOES function.  I have reset/disconnected the tv as well as the Direct TV box AND I have installed fresh batteries to the Direct TV remote.   

 

Do i need to have the Direct TV remote somehow relearn all the available channels?   Help!

FIXED!!  Thanks/kudoos to litzdog11!  He/she advised on this similar issue and the fix suggested was to hold the mute button simultaneously with the Enter button (pointing at the box for a few seconds).  All back to normal.  Thanks litzdog11!

Which button is the enter button on the LG remote? I also cannot get channels to work on it.... Of course, we do not have a box on the tv either.
