There is a way to bypass the remote control if it is missing or defective. Enter Diagnostic mode by turning the receiver on while holding DVD/LD + preset button number 8.

Once in diagnostic mode, press preset button 7. twice to get to factory preset option. (Assuming you are fine with this of course).

Then turn the receiver off and on again,

Done :)
