Question about RCA F32650 32" TV

1 Answer

Front Panelbuttons I have had my TV since 2004. About 4 months ago my 2 year old son threw remote into toilet and it no longer works. Now the front panel channel up button is stuck. The only way I can watch the tv is to lock the front panel using the parental control. How do I get the button unstuck?

You probably should replace the button matrix. They are usually less than $20. You do have to take off the back of the set ( makes sure its unplugged) It's also possible that the switch has collapsed, whoch can be replaced but needs some soldering skill. Google RCA parts or try herman electronics. You will need your model number to get the correct parts.

The remote to our TV is caput - has been for years - finally threw it away in a cleaning fit a few months ago - anyhow - now I can't make the tv go to componant 1 or componant 2 or input - so my DVD/VCR...


Unless the TV has an input select function available from the front panel buttons, you're out of luck. Many sets only have basic functions through the front panel and rely on the remote for the rest. The original remote had a button to switch the inputs and now you need it back.

The only sure solution is to buy an exact replacement remote. There are several companies online that can probably provide one. They tend to be costly, though. Your other option is to look for a universal replacement that has a button marked "input" or "tv/av" or similar, and hope it will work with your set.

One more option is to get an RF converter, available at TV retailers, Radio Shack, etc. This device takes the audio and video signals from another device and converts it to a channel 3 or 4 output signal that your TV can tune in. Then you can just put the TV on that channel. It would work, but you lose some picture quality and possibly stereo sound effects.

Sorry I don't have a happier answer. Thanks for using Fixya.

My sis gave me an old samsung tv. It is just for my son and his x-box. Unfortunately there is no remote control. When switched on it is saying PANEL LOCK. Is there any way i can fix this. Model No TI-14N3....


hello you could try this The front panel of the COMBI VISION can be locked to prevent it
from being used by young children for example.
1 To lock the front panel, display the television menu by pressing MENU
( ).
2 Select the SETUP option by pressing the P ▲ or ▼ buttons the required
number of times.
3 Press the + button.
4 Select the PANEL LOCK option by pressing the P ▲ or ▼ buttons the
required number of times.
5 Select ON by pressing the + button.
Result: The buttons on the front panel no longer have any effect.
6 To unlock the front panel, set the PANEL LOCK option to OFF.Another option would be to buy a universal remote from say - Argos carefully open it and use your own batteries and use that remote to unlock the TV then return the remote to Argos or if keep the remote if the original is lost. i hope it helps

well, two options, you can contact direct tv, and ask them how to progra your remote to your tv, or you can tell them the remote you have has gone bad, and they will give you a new remote.
(dont tell them what happened to the remote, just say you cant get any response form the remote, to your tv, just stoped working, and you need a replacement) and they will get you a new remote.
