That's essentially what the help button does.

When you press it, it goes through some of the basic activity tasks 
again automatically.  It will change the channel, power on the devices, 
etc.  When it is done, it will prompt to see if everything is ok now.  
If it isn't, then it will ask which things are wrong and correct them.
