Question about RCA 27F530T 27" TV
If your tv's front panel isn't working at all and the remote isn't either, then there is a simple fix. The only thing is that you will only be able to control your tv with the remote only. You can disconnect pin 4 at the connector of P001B on the front control panel circuit board. That will disconnect all the tack switches but allow the use of remote. First take your tv rear case off (there is 3 small torx head screws on the rear input/output panel, remove these first. Then there is two torx head screws on the left, top, and right side of the case facing rearward and connecting the black rear portion to the front silver portion). Once the rear case is off, there will be the front control panel circuit board attached in the front of the tv that needs to be unscrewed. Once unscrewed you can see all the connections labeled with eithers words or numbers. On the P001B connector on the front panel circuit board, there will be a 1 on one side and a 5 on the other. The pin 4 is naturally directly to the left of the 5 pin. There will be a bundle of wires leading from the front control panel to the main board of the tv which is on the bottom of the tv. Disconnect this from the main board. Then follow the #4 pin wire all the way from the front panel circuit board, to the connector end that you disconnected (This will be easy b/c they are in a flat bundle side by side). Then just completely remove only the #4 pin connector wire from the connector end. Wrap the end in electrical tape, plug the connector end back into the main board, and put the tv back together and it should work fine with the remote only (the front panel buttons will no longer work).
