How do I reset my tv to default.

I bought a rca tv model J25435 27" from a hotel and they gave the original remote, but I can't get to the menu to program the channels. and when I try it on the buttons from the tv, it just says "function disabled". Is there any way to reset the whole thing so I can use the remote and it's options to get all the channels? Or What can I do? I will try anything!

    same problem ...

  • JeffVOA Nov 19, 2008

    My Sony KV-32HS510 suddenly lost signal input. I cannot get the remote to do anything, either, so I cannot switch inputs to see what's going on. The set is stuck on Ch 26, and I cannot change channels either with the remote or the set's control panel buttons. The set doesn't respond to anything. Is there a reset button on one of the circuit boards, or some other way to restore default settings? I've looked and looked for the reset, board after board, and can't find it.

I have your answer, unfortunately.

As these are commercial TVs, they came with a Master and Guest remote. Onlythe Master remote can perform these functions. I have yet to find a way to override this from the panel.

However, a replacement master remote can be obtained for about $30 at

They must have them made that way so hotel guests cannot change the settings. Maybe there is a reset button on the back somewhere? I don't know of TV's having these. Some dvd players and recorders have them. It could be a small hole too that you have to press the button with a paperclip.

Thats my best guesses.

Why doesn't it work?

You may need to purchase an original remote controller and then take it out of Hotel Mode to allow adjustment.

    I accidentaly turned the FPA lock on my TruFlat RCA tv and the original remote broke. i just bought a RCA universal remote from best buy. now how do i get rid of the lock?

    It will be very difficult to unlock RCA TVs without its orginal remote control handset. Anyway just try this, This is the actual proceedings to unlock the RCA TV with its original remote. If you fail to do this with your present universal remote control, just buy an new original one from RCA Authorised Service Center at tyour town, or just borrow it from any of your friends or relatives; just to unlock your set. After unlock, you can use the universal remote control. Just follow the proceedings given below. One amoung them must unlock your RCA TV.

    Most RCA TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset is different depending on the model. Try each number until you find the one that works for you.
    1. Hold down the MENU button on the remote and VOLUME DOWN button 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
    2. Hold down the 0 (zero) button on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN button on the TV itself at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
    3. 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. 4- Hold down GO BACK button on the remote and MENU button on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
    Hold down EJECT button on the front of the TV set 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.
