Need to adjust convergence but no longer have the Remote Control

you can always buy a cheap universal remote and fix it that way.On most tvs you can access any menu features by hitting the channel up and down buttons or volume up and down buttons at the same time on most tvs its you have to hit the channel up and down buttons at the same exact time and the tv menu should pop up on screen.Hope this helps GOOD LUCK!!!!

I enabled the FPA lock on my RCA 20f511T and it shut off. Now I can't turn it on with the panel on the TV or the remote.

Disconnect the power cord from the outlet for AT LEAST 30 MINUTES, that should cause the TV to reset back to factory default settings, then you can start over with initial set up,etc, after you restore power to it.
Good luck!

What is FPA lock? It is turned on and I don't know how

That is Front Panel Access lock. There are diferent ways to unlock Tv depending on the model:
- Hold down menu on the remote and volume down on the TV itself at the same time for a least 5 secs. The Tv wont say so but it will be unlocked.
-Hold down the 0 on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN buttons on the TV its self at the same time for at least 5 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked.
-Hold down GO BACK on the remote and MENU
on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 5 seconds.
-Hold down EJECT onthe front of the TV and menu button on the remote at the same time for 5 secs.

My TV was doing the same thing. Someone told me to disconnect the front menu buttons and this worked for me. The board goes haywire. You have to take off the front black panel on the bottom first then the grey front panel where the controls are. Once you do this you will see where there is a plug from tv to the panel where the control buttons are. Just disconnect. You will only be able to use your remote for TV. Its a cheap and easy fix. Just lots of screws to get the panels off and on. Good luck!

9 blinks,won't turn ON, but I can make it turn on with diagnostic

I'm suprised with nine blimks the set will turn on at all. You are in the service menu; be careful, you can render the set totally unusable if you change something. Try unplugging the set for a few minutes and plug back in.

Volume decreases by itself

maybe defective speaker or audio output ic or shorted capacitor within audio circuit

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

Cant turn off panasonic PIP

To turn off the "stuck" pip on a Panasonic tv without a remote, turn off the tv. Then hold down the "Action" button on the front of the tv and press the power button. This will activate a reset and self check of the systems and voila! The pesky pip screen will be gone! This is on an approximately 10 year old regular crt "CT-xxxxx" series tv.

Hi Unykue,

I am an electronics technician who just happened have been given the same set as you because it was giving the previous owner the same problem. Since I am confident in my trade, I took the set and diagnosed noise in the remote receivers input to the cpu.

What this means is that a capacitor( or something) wasn't working properly and was either not filtering the noise out or it was introducing noise into the data stream that controls the TV through your remote control.

My fix was to essentially cut out the entire remote control input to the TV. Since I have a directtv box to give me remote control, I don't care if the TV's remote works anyway.

The way I did this was to open up the unit and find the front I/O board were the buttons meet the switches for power,chaennel, volume, etc. On that board there is a plug with white wires and one black wire. The two wires to cut are the one next to the black wire and the one all the way at the other end of the black wire. These two wires are easy to splice back if you do not like the results of this procedure so that there is really no risk of damaging your set. If you wish to verify the proper wires to cut, they are the two wires that come from the IR receiver's side of the board YET DO NOT GO TO THE OTHER SIDE WITH THE BUTTONS! There is one wire that does indeed go to both sides.

This may not be a perfect solution but it is free. I hope that this will help someone out there.
