Re: parental controls

If you forget your password, press and hold TV on the remote and the
MENU button on the television simultaneously for 3 seconds. Parental
controls will then unlock and you can re-enter a password via Lock
Parental Controls

Is there a reset button on rca p52939

No there is no reset button . you would unplug the set for 5 min's and this will allow a reset . . with the symptoms you give id say you have a shut down issue . the set has detected a error and is putting it into a shut down sequence to protect it self from major damage .

We bought an RCA tv off of someone and they had the parental control set for channels, and now we cannot turn it off because we don't know the password. can you help?

-one thing for sure, ask the first owner if they remember the code to unlock the problem.

-why not try to call the service to reset it via the EPROM. this action will reset the system to its original state.

Fpa lock on how do i get this offf

hello Lock/Unlock Parental Controls
Selecting this option lets you lock and unlock parental controls settings
using a password.
If you do not lock parental controls, none of the settings for V-Chip,
Channel Block, or Front Panel Block will take effect.
If you forget your password, press the MENU button, then select Parental
(the password entry screen appears). Simultaneously press and
hold CH+ and VOL+ on the front panel for 8 seconds. Parental Controls
unlock and the Parental Control menu appears. You can enter a new
password by locking the Parental Controls again.
Front Panel Block
Selecting this option lets you block (disable) or unblock (enable) the TV’s
front panel. The remote still tunes to any channel. When using this as a
Parental Control method, remove access to any remote that is capable of
operating the television while you have the front panel blocked.
Don’t forget to lock parental controls after you change the status. If you
don’t, the front panel block will not take effect .if this don't work get back to me i've got manual good luck
