Question about RCA P61960 61" Rear Projection Television
Television will not turn on automatically using the remote or manually(pushing power button on tv). It takes a couple of trys to get it on and once it is on the menu screen automatically pops up in spanish and it will not go away. It's like the tv has a mind of its own. I manually press the buttons on the tv and it does not do the function I selected. For example, if I press the volume button the channel will turn and if I press the power button (to turn it off) the menu screen will come up or some red numbers and letters that read: P O 1.2 V O Any advice?
The front panel buttons are your trouble,you can disconnect these,first unplug the unit and remove the back cover,just below the top screws you can look under and see the top of the pictures tubes,in front of the middle tube is a small board,unplug the top right cable,this will disconnect the front buttons and you can use your remote to control the set,hope this helps

Tips for a great answer:
Your RCA rear projection TV may not turn on from time to time for several reasons. First, check that the power cord is plugged into a working power outlet. Check that the outlet is receiving electricity by plugging a different device into the outlet. If the other device doesn't work, you may need to replace a fuse or reset a circuit breaker in your home.
If you tried using the remote control to turn on the TV, press the "Power" button on the front of the TV. You may have a problem with the remote control if the TV turns on.
If you tried using the front control panels and haven't tried the remote, press the "Power" button on the remote control. The television controls are blocked if the TV turns on with the remote. To unlock the controls, open the "Parental Control" menu and remove the check mark next to "Front Panel Block."
Finally, your TV may be performing a diagnostic check. These checks are used to find any errors in your TV. Wait a few minutes before trying to turn on the TV again.
You may find that your RCA TV turns off by itself on occasion. This is often because the "Sleep Timer" feature was enabled. This feature allows you to place a timer on the television that will turn it off after a specific amount of time has passed. The feature allows you to save on your energy bill and extend the life of your television.
If the "Sleep Timer" wasn't set, the television may have detected a power surge in your home and shut off automatically to protect the components of the television. Wait at least 30 seconds before turning the TV on again.
Finally, if you suspect the television is turning off for a reason other than a power surge, unplug the television and let it sit for at least 10 minutes. This will clear any errors in the television. After 10 minutes, plug the television back into the outlet and resume normal use.
A blank screen on an RCA rear projection television is usually caused by a loose connection or an incorrect setting. Check that the coaxial connection on the back of the television is secure or, if you're using an external device such as a DVD player, the video cables are secure. Press the "Ant/Cable" button to switch between tuners if you are watching television, or the "Input" button to switch between input channels if you're watching something from an external device.
