RCA: buttons and remote won't work

I have an RCA 35V432T 35" TV, about 10 months old. The power and other buttons on the front panel don't work (have verified that child lock isn't activated). The remote works but only within about five feet of the set. Just a few weeks ago everything was fine; remote worked from 15 feet. I've checked to ensure that no new electrical interference has been introduced (eg invisible dog fence) and no other electrical appliances are malfunctioning, so I don't suspect a lightening strike. I also bought another remote and found that it too works only up to five feet. Perplexed, so any insight will be helpful.

    Thx, not the batteries and sensor window's clean. Question now becomes whether labor (not covered by rca warranty, but parts still are) exceeds the value of the set.

    Dr. Dave:

    I'm no tech but this one ends in a funny way. I think this will help.

    It wasn't my wife, it was our baby son. Here's how I solved it. The tech approach etc. was more expensive than the set so I decided to destroy the thing as we couldn't lift it. Took the cover off (which was hard). Looked all over and didn't see anything obvious. Had hammer in hand, was ready to smash into smaller pieces. Then I noticed a little card with circuitry on it up by where the buttons are located. It was slightly out of place . . so that circuits weren't being activated by buttons and remote control sensor was tilted away from sensor. I adjusted the card, fitting it back into the slot. Then I filled a few buckets with water, stood back with the set plugged in, and hit the remote. I figured the thing would explode so I had the extension cord ready to yank to be followed by onslaught of water Alas it powered up. I hit the buttons one-by-one and they all worked. Put the cover back on and we're still using the tv today. Why the baby's fault. He liked to push the buttons and it seems he pushed them so hard that it knocked the card out of place!!! Remote worked only within inches because of the resulting tilted angle of the sensor.

    I hope this helps. More technically-oriented people here can probably give you better guidance on how to manage this repair. It wasn't easy and I'm surprised I got everything back in place without ruining something.

I don't have the solution, but the same problem w/ my RCA,and the solutions seem to skirt the issue, the problem wasn't with the remote other than the op.range. The problem was the inop. front panel buttons, and I am also eagerly waiting for a solution that might help our issue! Thanks! no disrespect intended!--DrDave

The fact that the front panel buttons dont wprk is an indication that theres a control problem. could be a low b+ going to the processor or something such as an leaky or stuck button. But your still gonna need a tech. Good Luck

I assume you tried changing to known good batteries. It's been known for people to get what they think are fresh batteries but they are old ones left lying around. If you've changed remotes did you put your old batteries in it too? If you are using new batteries then there must be a fault with the receiver which is a tech job. Oh Yes, make sure the receiver's window is clean. Over zealous wives can leave cleaner spray in the window and that can cause problems. BMW

SOURCE: FPA Locked ON

Most RCA and GE TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset procedure is different depending on the model. Try each method until you find one that works:

  1. Hold down MENU on the remote and VOLUME DOWN on the TV it’s self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  2. Hold down the 0 on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN buttons on the TV its self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  3. Hold down the MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
  4. Hold down GO BACK on the remote and MENU on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
  5. Hold down EJECT on the front of the TV and the MENU button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
Depending on the model, one of the methods should unlock the V-chip. Now, if desired, you can change the settings on the V-chip by going to the MENU and going to PARENTAL CONTROLS, or on some sets, going to MENU and then going to TV SETUP, then to V-CHIP SET.

Hello
If your TV has no menu button on its front panel, there is no other way than buying a universal or original remote control to this set.

I have a RCA 35V432T. The TV is not turning on, I can hear it clicking on and off only. Any ideas?


Hi - probably not worth fixing, I'm afraid. That set is a lower-end RCA with a common problem, the EEPROM chip needs to be replaced.

You have a bad horizontal transistor and a possible bad flyback transformer! These two components are indicating a short in your horizontal deflection. Thanks for asking!

Doesn't rcognize DVD players


You aren't trying to use channel 3 or 4 are you? That's for RF connections only.

There are probably AV input channels on the set that aren't accessible from the channel up/down buttons. On my set there is another button to switch between inputs and channel select.

RCA 35V432T Dead Set


Check for a high voltage power supply section of your TV set...
Especially in flyback transformer.Be careful to do so because the output voltage of the flyback transformer is almost thousand volts.
