I think while shifting some loose contact problem might be there as you say it was working fine at mother house. or you can check plug or socket for loose. or call tech to fix it as it is not a serious job.

TV won't stay on - it shuts right off and it was working just fine.

A TV shutting off could be anything. How long does it stay on? Do you hear any odd sounds during turn on? Does the standby light blink a pattern after shutdown? More information would be needed to diagnose your problem any further. Let me know.

My FPA Lock is on and we cant find the remote and we us comcast cable. Can you help or do I need to get a new remote?

Same thing happened to me recently. I tried everything from going to and RCA solutions... to NO avail. I brought an original universal remote and that didn't work. I went to radioshack and brought a RCA universal remote and hit the power button and it came on. I hope this works for others. RCA kept telling me that I would have to buy another RCA remote. Nope! the RCA universal remote from radio shack worked just fine and cost only $7.00.

Turn tv on, shuts immediately off.

Same problem with my 28 inch 16:9 CRT Sanyo. I usually fix it by cutting the power to the outlet and then it works fine. Had it into the repair shop - and of course it never acts up there...

You have to have a remote control to set the chanel to 00. You cannot set the chanel to 00 with the chanel buttons on the front of the tv.
