If the front panel lock is on, you will need a working original remote (or a universal remote properly programmed for RCA) to turn the set on. The IR receiver is next to the buttons on the fromt but the RCA IR receivers are very reliable, and I have yet to see a bad one in a modern RCA TV. Once you turn the set on by remote, you can enter the menu and turn the FPA off.

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.

Hey this same thing happened to me not too long ago and you just have to buy a Universal remote and program it (it should come with the codes to program it to your TV) I think the code is 704 or 702 for RCA... Anywho after that then you can turn your tv back on wit the remote and push menu and Preferences and then FPA off. Its just a parental control block so your kids cant touch the tv buttons and mess with your settings.

easy. some rca tv's have a disable function for the buttons on front of tv. keeps little children from changing channels and going into menu. you need a remote to access the menu. then go into parental child lock function in menu. hope you are not the child and your parents locked the front buttons. hehe

RCA truflat tv locked and is on standby mode. I have a universal remote but the remote will not work if the tv is on standby I need to find out how to unlock the tv with out the remote so I could turn it...


Okay, do this.

On the top of the t.v. itself, hold down the Volume+ (up) and the Menu button down at the same time. This will turn off the "power lock." This is also how you turn on the "power lock." (Though I can't think of a reason anyone would ever want to do this.)

Also the problem ca be from factory defect in the if and video section of the tv only the manufacturer could remedy that.take it to a tech so that the video board and the IF board be replaced


Hope it helps...Thanks ....feel free to contact me back ....Ok ?..
