Removing parental lock on a ge/ modal num 46gw948

I have never seen the 948 have parental control lock---it's too old for support from Thompson (GE/RCA) so I will ask a question: what precisely is the set doing or not doing? Does it have the "Guide Plus" logo on the front of the cabinet?

My Sony Trinitron televison, model number KV27FS100, does not have a picture anymore. There is a flashing red light at the timer that flashes 5 times and then repeats this sequence of 5 flashes again and...

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience.
Type in the brand name of your device, in the search box [at the top right] of the display window and the Search will start at once as you type in, and will show you all the related posts. It will make surf easy.

I bought a new 27 inch proscan in 1991. It was

This is probably a tv with the "ctc-169" chassis. The BEST modern chassis RCA built. I own 2 of them that I USE, one is a 32" CONSOLE, a lot like your 27" set the other is a projo. I would keep BOTH of them ANY day--over ANY of the cheap, unreliable, fragile flat--panel sets today!!

FIX your set!! If the picture was good--it still will be--these sets had GREAT tubes in them. Most likely--a power supply isue with a couple of caps in the power supply, perhaps the controller chip for the chopper transistor, nothing likely serious. Probably about 150 repair--or less.

That is a M134C chassis - one of the most inexpensive (throw-away) chassis ever built and the so-called v-chip is actaully a function of the micro, short for micro controller Ic. It would be less expensive to replace the entire board, RCA p/n# 268733 which is around $70.00 bucks plus shipping, than to replace just the micro.
You can find them available at Vance Baldwin... Just login as guest and enter thr RCA part number above and order it there.
Putting in an entire chassis is a plug-n-play repair...
Hope this helps.

Tv problems

Thompson/RCA states: "If you forgot your password for this feature, press the following buttons on the remote, one at a time. (Note: You must be in the password entry screen) Press, Mute, Display,Clear and Reset, this unlocks parental controls and you can now re-enter a new password.
Press and hold Menu on the TV AND volume down on the remote for 3 seconds. Nothing will appear on the screen, and the Parental Controls will unlock, and you can re-enter a new password with the LOCK PARENTAL CONTROLS

Let me know if that does the trick getting it unlocked..

1)Whenever the word "sometimes" is used,a good visual inspection of PS,horiz,regulation & vert. circuits are needed.Solder any/all bad connects. 2)IHVT aka flyback is the usual culprit. Get part # and ask distributor how popular it is? Any info gathered when doing repairwork can be helpful.!

RCA F27650 27" TV - Snow Bursts

The model you listed, F27650 uses the new ATC113 series chassis, which is only about 3 years old. The ATC113 chassis is not known to have snowy issues, but if yours is then I would suspect that a solder joint is loose in the tuner. If your set is actually around 9 years old, then it might perhaps have the notorious CTC175 - CTC187 series chassis, which went snowy all the time due to cracked solder joints on the shield grounds around the tuner and microprocessor. In either case, some good quality resoldering should cure your trouble. If you have never done fine solder work on PC boards with small surface-mount parts, allow a qualified tech to handle it for you.
