Just bought an RCL3210 TV. The odd thing is that the Channel up/down key on the remote control does not change the channel. Also, the up/down channel key on the TV itself also does not respond. When you...

You need to find how to CLEAR the auto channel settings. Sounds like the TV is set to SKIP all channels. Look for a MENU and then look for an AUTO setting that will walk through all channels and set those where you have reception as the "list" that the remote and the Up/Down buttons on the tv will choose.
PS: GREAT writeup on your problem and the things you have tried.

I fixed mine. It was one of the channel buttons on the top of the tv. You will need to figure out which one it is. It has five prongs that are soldered into the board three on one side two on the other. I clipped the two prongs side on the channel down switch and mine works great now. It will run the channels up on the tv but works normal with the remote. If the channels are running up it would be the up switch for example. You will need to remove the back to get the switch panel to slide foward to service. Disconnect power for about six hours before you mess with it as it holds power around the picture tube that will bite you.

Can't select front input without remote

I had the same problem, had a universal DirecTV remote that was able to control the volume/mute, power and channels (both TV and DirecTV), but the input button didn't work. There was no av/tv button on the front of the tv, and the autoregistration of channels didn't pickup the gamecube on the AV channel. What solved it was simply to press "00". I couldn't believe it, but it was that simple. Hope this helps you like it helped me, since the tv was not going to be of much use since we were using the RCA inputs, not the coax. Didn't want to try to conver the RCA to coax either.

How do I program a 1987 rca tv, lost the remote for it

if it is xl-100 "remote control" model (manu. 1987) I have a drop down door on front, there are names for buttons (5) at left:
auto pro,
step > (arrows actually up/down)
The other buttons to R are channel up & down, volume up & down & red Power, of course.
On the left, if you can "add" in some channels you scroll by, you may get more than 60.
(is this all moot, in 34 days, Feb 17)
My remote for another RCA does work some, for this "oldy."
