Question about RCA E13319 13" TV

Open Question

RCA TV channel scrolling

I have two RCA TV's that I bought second hand so I have no owner's manuals. Ordinarilly a remote with channel arrow up/down keys would scroll sequentially through ALL channels. RCA apparently designed a way to block individual channels so you can skip over channels you don't use or have no reception. Anyone know how to set/unset this in the on-screen menu? I want to unblock them all. It has never asked me for a password so I don't think it's the V-chip. Of course if anyone has an owner's manual for the model E13319 I'd love to have it. Thanks

SOURCE: channel selection

What you need to do is take the remote, go into the menu, find channel scan and do a channel scan to find all the available stations available on this system. Make sure the TV set is in the cable mode and not antenna mode or you wont get any stations above channel 13.

SOURCE: Why does my RCA TV cycle through channels on its own?

this is the same type of problem happening with other rca models and I know it is the EPROM CHIP but why this is failing is either because of design flaw , dirty enviroment that they were made in , to much voltage or current to the chip or too much of a draw from the chip causing it to fail . Or even a random frequency from the IR sensor or its circut I'm still investigating and testing.
leave the tv unplugged for at least 3 weeks durring this time resolder any solder that don't look good , I did this and it lasted for about 6 months(always plugged in to the wall) before it started doing it again. model # 27v412t

The problem is in the switch panel. Lay the TV down flat on the screen on some carpet. remove the screws around the back (unplug first) and remove the back. You will see the board that the switches are in down behind where they are on the front. You can unsnap the panel from its location easily and pull it out. Also release the clip that goes into the bigger control board carefully. It has a clip that you have to press to keep from breaking it. The take the switch panel and get some good electronic spray cleaner and spray it directly into the buttons, while pressing them repeatedly. This will clewan the switches. The problemm is caused by one or more of the switches making a connection when you are not pressing it, so the TV is freaking out and doesnt know what you want it to do. Clean all six switches well and replace the panel in the reverse order. Should work like a champ!

No chanels

The TV is locked electronically. To unlock it, you must have its remote control. If you have its remote control,

From the main menu choose "Parental Controls;" it's option six.

Choose the first option, V-Chip TV Rating Limit, and using the arrow keys and the OK button on the remote, scroll through until the TV-MA rating appears. Press the right arrow button to move the highlight over to the "Status" field and toggle to "View." Press the OK button. This will set the age-based ratings to Mature.

From the Parental Controls menu, select the second option, V-Chip Movie Ratings Limit and change the rating to TV_MA and the "Status" to "View."

From the Parental Controls menu select the third option, V-Chip Unrated Program Block and select item one, which will be "View."

Select the fourth option, which is "Channel Block." Highlight the Channel field and using the channel up and down buttons, go through and check they are all set to 'View." Any set to "Block" will need to be toggled back to View.

Lock the controls to activate the changes using item six on the "Parental Controls" menu. If you wish more details abut RCA TV unlock proceedings, check this site.

Goodmorning, bought a zenith tv didn't get the remote. Wonndering how i can programme it using just the buttons on the tv. How do i get the menus up. it only catches threes channels as of now.

There are two types Zenith TVs. One type will have "Menu" button on its front panel and other will not. If your Zenith is the first type, you can programme it without a remote control. If it is the second type, you must have a remote control hanset to programme it.
Programming method
First connect the TVs antenna socket at its back with external antenna or cable.

* With the remote control in hand, press the POWER key to
turn on the Presentation TV.
** Press MENU repeatedly until the Setup menu appears.

*** Using the Up/Down arrow on the remote control, highlight
Auto Program on the screen

**** Press the Right or Left arrow to go to the Auto Program

***** Using the Up/Down arrow, choose either Cable TV or Off-
Air Antenna on the screen.
****** Press the Right or Left arrow to begin the Channel Search.
******* Press ENTER when the channel search is done.

Note: Auto Program finds channels being received by the TV
Cable will not work unless you subscribe to a cable service

RCS colortrak f20352sf: Can't view video source (Wii). I've wiggled the cables, cables are hooked up properly, Channel 91 doesn't work. In the setup menu, next to channel 91, it says clear.

I just bought the same TV second-hand and had the same problem. Solution: Use remote to change channel to 00. You can't display channel 00 using front panel - a remote is required. I have a very basic RCA universal remote, & it does the trick.

How do i reset this tv?

The TV will search for active channels and add them itself. Use the remote to select the on screen menu and go to the Channel Setup mode. Then just push the up arrow and it will add the channels for you automatically.

There is a possibility that this set has another "mode' where you can select "hotel" or "standard" if it's there make sure you set that to standard the "hotel" mode disables some of the features like the ability to set the channels. I can't find this owners manual on line for free (RCA usually won't provide them) I can't be more specific. I doubt that you got a copy of the owners manual when you got the TV.

How do I program a 1987 rca tv, lost the remote for it

if it is xl-100 "remote control" model (manu. 1987) I have a drop down door on front, there are names for buttons (5) at left:
auto pro,
step > (arrows actually up/down)
The other buttons to R are channel up & down, volume up & down & red Power, of course.
On the left, if you can "add" in some channels you scroll by, you may get more than 60.
(is this all moot, in 34 days, Feb 17)
My remote for another RCA does work some, for this "oldy."
