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

MENU button on the remote and VOLUME DOWN button 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
Hold down the 0 (zero) button on the remote
and the VOLUME DOWN button on the TV itself at the same time for at
least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked

remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. 4- Hold down GO BACK
button on the remote and MENU button on the front of the TV at the same
time for at least 4 seconds.
Hold down EJECT button on the
front of the TV set 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

Make sure your closed-captioning is set to "off" or to "caption 1" in the setup. You have it set to one of its "text" modes right now, and what's happening is the caption decoder is blanking the screen where the text would go if there was any. You're probably noticing this on some channels but not all - it will only show up when the channel has closed-captioning being broadcast.
The v-chip locking is a separate problem. If you can provide the make and model of TV, I'll see if I can find how to reset the lock code.
