Question about RCA Televison & Video
Look deeply through the menu and you might find this - most electronic devices have this option. Another option (always a go to with electronics) is to unplug the unit for a period of time. I have seen issues with burn in and I am note sure that a hard reset will remedy this for you - but certainly worth a try. Good Luck!!

HI, Joe ! You probably have a short somewhere. Where? Possibly in the High Voltage circuit.Maybe the horizontal out put circuit. This is a common signal,especially RCA's, that there is a heavy load on one of the power supplies--- like a shorted transistor or ? Stargazer

Without the original remote, sorry none. You could try pressing on any of the buttons or a combination while plugging in the unit but that is no guarantee it will reset (fully). With your indulgence, I took the liberty of checking your other posts here and here. It would seem that your original concern is that although the TV would appear to be switching to the lower channels (Ch 2-6), the TV programs on those channels would not be displayed. If yes, then I am inclined to think that there is a hardware fault internal to the TV. This would be the tuner block. The reset, even if successful, would not correct this error.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Sounds to me you have a cold solder joint ( loose solder connection ) on the printer circuit board around or on the vertical chip or on one of the vertical capacitors. You may also have a bad vertical chip or a bad vertical capacitor, but I doubt it since it did come and go. I'de get a soldering iron and some solder and touch up the connections. I will remind you that you need to always excersise saftey by making sure, before removing the back, unplug the TV from the wall, and use care not to come in contact with the large red wire going to the back of the picture tube as the picture tube can be turned off and still store lots of voltage ( up to 35,000 volts). Always stay safe and when soldering, use care not to run solder across places that will make a short.
Good Luck and I hope this helps

this symptons is caused by a breakdown in the vertical deflection circuit. hence, the trouble may be in the vertical oscillator, amplifier or output circuit. in most modern tv the vertical ic is usually composed of these said circuit inside. the ic have many pins, standing on a heat sink and smaller in size. try to check also the capacitors surrounding it. sometimes leaky capacitor may cause this problem. good luck!
