Small rca truflat tv won't turn on

I have had this tv for awhile and it has worked very well, but a few days ago, I was babysitting and the kids had messed with the settings, and now it will not turn on. All I saw was something lock and they shut it off and now it will not turn on. There is a little red dot beside the buttons in front of the tv and it is on it's lit up I guess because it is on standby. I have tried unplugging it, and pushing the power button and waiting, so now I don't know what to do? Please let me know if there is a way to fix this, I really like this tv!!!

    I have the same exact problem. I hit some lock thing by accident and now it only goes to standby mode and wont turn on. I have no Idea what I did. It was not dropped or anything. I saw something lock as well and then I freaked out and turned the tv off and now it wont turn on...it just stays in standby mode. I have unplugged it and left it alone and then tried again but no luck? does anyone know what this lock is and how to get the tv on again?

    I would like to know why RCA hasn't had a call back on this product, every body that owns one has the same problem. I've been a RCA consumer for years but if they don't recall this product i will not buy another product from them EVER!!!! there is NO solution to this problem, you will never get your TV set to work I've tried everything.

Leave the tv unplugged for a couple of days , if the lock feature that you seen was a parental feature then the tv should have still came on , even if it was a lock for the tv the tv would come on but would not change channles or do anything but say its locked , otherwise something happened to the EPROM chip inside the tv that controls the power on/off, vol , menu , ect...

    missmegan89 ,

    does the standby light blink a certain amount of times when plugged in ? or does it just stay lit?

  • Ed Korey Nov 21, 2011

    its not a perental feature, its FPA lock. [Front Panel Access] without a remote I dont think you can fix this issue because the front buttons wont do anything

  • jason Nov 21, 2011

    this is the menu ic , the menu ic is also the cause in simular models

  • jason Nov 21, 2011

    if you get a remote that turns on the tv and accesses the menu then you can go to preferences and turn off the child lock(fpa) otherwise the eeprom ic(menu ic) has failed

Power button only one that won't turn power on


Have the remote tested either with a tester that most shops have or in a dark room with a digital camera the display will faintly flash when remote pointed at it and buttons pressed.

Also if button does not work (power) unplug the set for a while to see if it will reset. If the tester shows same problem--no working for power or have to press ******* buttons 99% chance something got spilled onto remote and got inside

How do you turn off the FPA lock on the RCA TRUFLAT TV? I Can't access menu.


Hello
First of all, you must ahve its original remote control to unlock FPA lock. If you have it, go through the folloing steps.
* Hold down Menu button on the remote control, and the Volume Down button on the at the same time for at least 4 seconds. "The set won't say so, but the lock will be released".
** Hold down Zero button on the remote control, and the Volume Down button on the TV. The set won't say so, but the lock will be released.
*** Hold down Menu button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be released.

My RCA tv has been working fine for years. A few days ago it began to have intermittent popping sounds. Picture is clear and sound is good. I recently dusted the back of my set and I'm sure some dust must...


hi there,
if u know how to work with your set u can:
1. open the back cover case of your tv and try to find a foreign objects inside and clean it up with your vacuum cleaner.
2. popping sounds sometimes due to lossen parts, bad socket contacts, too much dust and dirts ,corrosions .and when cleaning you unplug first your TV set to avoid electric shock. i hope this will help a little. Thank You.

Rca truflat locked


Hey this same thing happened to me not too long ago and you just have to buy a Universal remote and program it (it should come with the codes to program it to your TV) I think the code is 704 or 702 for RCA... Anywho after that then you can turn your tv back on wit the remote and push menu and Preferences and then FPA off. Its just a parental control block so your kids cant touch the tv buttons and mess with your settings.
