Manual menu button not working after adding channel-no RCA remote only disconnected DirecTV remote
Manual Menu button on RCA model F25216BC is not working. After I did a auto channel search from the set Menu button, I attempted to manually add another channel. That is when it locked up and only one channel will now show. I do not have the original RCA remote. I am using a DirecTV remote. The set is no longer connected to DirecTV. I can get other channels by entering the number of the channel on the remote. Would the problem somehow be parental lock and if so is it possible to remove this without the original remote??

You will need to get a "regular" Universal remote and program it for that particular model of TV. You will need to access the on screen setup menu for the TV and then have it scan the channels. Make sure your DTV box is on and connected with the coaxial cable. If the "TV Input" button on your DTV remote works and you can get it onto the Video Channel, You can connect your DTV receiver with the RCA Cables (Red, White and Yellow) and get your picture that way. If you access the on screen menu, you will need to scan for Analog and Digital channels as the receiver transmits in Analog. hope this helps.
Tounlock your TV you surely need its remote control. Try to get it from somewhere, from any one of your friends, who own the similar model of TV, or buy it from RCA. After getting it try the following. You can unlock it.
Most RCA and GE TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset procedure is different depending on the model. Try each method until you find one that works:
Hold down MENU on the remote and VOLUME DOWN on the TV it's self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock 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 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
Hold down the MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
Hold down GO BACK on the remote and MENU on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
Hold down EJECT on the front of the TV and the MENU button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
Depending on the model, one of the methods should unlock the V-chip. Now, if desired, you can change the settings on the V-chip by going to the MENU and going to PARENTAL CONTROLS, or on some sets, going to MENU and then going to TV SETUP, then to V-CHIP SET. Sinotec: If you have the original remote (RC-A07) for Sinotec tv, then press and hold down the Music button for about 10 seconds
IF YOU, STILL SUBSCRIBE DIRECTV, YOU MAY GO TO THE MENU, USING THEIR CLICKER AND GO TO THE PART OF MENU, WHERE YOU CAN CHOOSE TV TO OPERATE WITH DIRECTV REMOTE. YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO CHANGE ANYTHING ON TV BY USE DIRECTV REMOTE, BUT TO OPERATE IT'S CONTROL BOX. REALLY, YOU CHANGING CHANNELS ON THAT BOX, NOT TV ITSELF. IF YOU'RE NOT A SUBSCRIBER, FORGET THAT REMOTE! UNLESS YOU'RE A CUSTOMER, IT WON'T HAPPEN. JUST "GOOGLE" YOUR MAKE AND MODEL FOR A SUITABLE UNIVERSAL REMOTE, OR THE ORIGINAL. ALSO: YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO GET ANY RECEPTION(HD OR ANY), UNLESS YOU HAVE RABBIT EARS OR ANTENNA ON A ROOF. GOOD LUCK, ALEX'S TV.

I had the same problem, had a universal DirecTV remote that was able to control the volume/mute, power and channels (both TV and DirecTV), but the input button didn't work. There was no av/tv button on the front of the tv, and the autoregistration of channels didn't pickup the gamecube on the AV channel. What solved it was simply to press "00". I couldn't believe it, but it was that simple. Hope this helps you like it helped me, since the tv was not going to be of much use since we were using the RCA inputs, not the coax. Didn't want to try to conver the RCA to coax either.
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
Try this: On the Tivo remote press and hold the TV Power button and the Directv/TIVO button at the same time. Hold both buttons down for about 4 seconds or until remote light stays red. Then press the channel up button until the tv turns off. You may press the button over 100 times. You need to go slow. When the TV turns off press the enter button (or select button).
Question? Whenever I turn on the television, the GUIDE Plus+™ or GUIDE Plus+ GOLD™ on-screen program guide automatically comes on. Answer: The GUIDE Plus+™ or GUIDE Plus+ GOLD™ on-screen program guide automatically comes up when you use the TV button on the remote to turn on the TV. There are several ways to turn off this function if you wish, depending on your model.
Option A: Select the GUIDE Plus+™ Menu from the Main menu. Select Setup. Select Options. Select Off.
Option B: Select the GUIDE Plus+™ Menu from the Main menu. Select GUIDE Plus+™ Auto Display from the GUIDE Plus+ menu. Select Off.
Option C: Press GUIDE on your remote control. Select the Menu bar. Press the right arrow button to select Setup. Choose Review Options. Select Off.
I know Option C worked for me!!
Given the many TV models, it's possible that accessing control of this feature in the Program Guide menu may differ on your TV. For specific instructions for your model, see your owner's manual.
