TV power button on my RCA True Flat 27" screen TV


RCA TVs come with a child lock capability called V-Chip. It's a parental control system which allows you to block programs and films by content, age-based ratings and the ratings which come with the movies. The parental control is a code, sent by the broadcaster to your television. The V-Chip will not work if the broadcaster doesn't send the control, or if the parental controls are switched off or unlocked. The controls are set up in the TV's main menu. The default is off.
From the main menu choose "Parental Controls;" it's option six.

Press the right arrow button to move the highlight over to the "Status" field and toggle to "View." Press the OK button. This will set the age-based ratings to Mature.

    Can not remove parental block on TV - can not remove parental block on Symphonic TV


    Notes (for TV RATING and MPAA RATING):
    ● You cannot access the setup menu when the
    “PROTECTED PROGRAM by ...” message
    appears. Move to an unblocked channel
    before you hit [MENU].
    ● When you select a rating and set it to
    [BLOCK], the higher ratings will be blocked
    automatically. The lower ratings will be
    available for viewing.
    ● When you set the lowest rating to [VIEW],
    all other ratings will automatically be available
    for viewing.
    you have forgotten the code, unplug the power cord
    for 10 seconds to restore the access code to
    0000.
