Question about RCA 27F530T 27" TV

TV contantly searching

My tv all of sudden started doing channel searches by itself. During this, it started shutting off and on. Then, the tv may work for a couple hours before it started the process again of searching for channels, then shutting off and on. Nothing liquid was spilled near it and I am hopefully assuming, I don't have a poltergeist! I finally decided I would try and delete the other channels besides 4 since that is the only one I need for the cable. As I was doing this using the menu function on the tv (since I long ago misplaced the tv remote, I use the cable remote) I accidently chose something I think called an FPA4 lock. I guess I chose yes and my tv went off. I have no idea how to unlock it. Any ideas about any of the above problems? The tv is only about a year and a half old.

Tv suddenly shows no audio and no video for digital channles only yet all digital channles are detected durring the channel search

Sounds like you have a bad signal from the antenna or the cable. Unlike analog TV if the signal level drops below a certain level you loose the picture and sound completely. The fact that digital channels are detected during channel search does not mean they have a good signal. Try moving the antenna about.

Sudden channel changing,flipping off and on and channel searching

Main system control memory IC fault. This is a very small IC; have 8 solder terminals, and can be located very near to the main system control-chroma IC. Check and replace it. Be sure to replace it with the same number printed on it; in all respect. Otherwise, it won't go. Before replacing it, try a reset to this set, and then check.
There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.
