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.

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.

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

Lost my remote for my RCA RT2500 Audio/Video Receiver and i cant turn it on because the power button is stuck on standby. I purchased another remote model CRK76 but it wont turn unit on. I also unplugged...


You need to confirm if the power switch is working as the button is stuck . So it is best to get this part corrected before we move to the remote as the power switch or the button aligment can be corrected if you open to check the continuity.
Next the remote controller must be checked for the IR outputs. please check this link below for tips to repair or find a link for a universal type remote.

Power went off and came back on last Friday and now tv wont turn back on


Have you got a stand by light on, or is tv dead totally.I would Check plug fuse if dead, My suspect would be power supply capacitors drying out (had this fault recently with friends tv) this caused tv to be working sometimes but eventually stuck on standby. Capacitors are cheap but not a job for the novice.
You could ask local tv shop for estimate

If you can not turn on TV set with the power button on the TV its not a standby problem as this would by pass the standby. Theres most likly, on a set of this age, top have a poiwer regulator problem and is going to need a trained tech to assist you in this repair.
