We just purchased the RCA DRC285 with the TVguardian option. We tried to set the levels but it won't let us do so until we give it a activation number. It tells us to call a phone number....we did....the recording tells us to go online to TVguardian/tech support......we did.....but does not have any info about our RCA DVD player or a activation code.
I had the same problem with a memorex and called a company called Family Safe. Their number is 1-800-828-4514. Leave a message and you will be called back usually by a man named Mike. He has authorization to activate this for TV Guardian. Somehow the last digit is being left off of the code on the machines so the website reads it as invalid. You will have to give him your credit card number but it is a safe site and he activated mine and called me back within minutes with my code. Hope this helps.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The speaker level input option is designed for receivers that don't have digital output for the sub, used this way when you set to digital the speaker outputs only get the higher range outputs so won't reproduce much bass. To get the sub to work in digital mode you need to use the digital output (single RCA) from the amp to the sub
There are some methods to unlock RCA TVs which are give below. Try each of them and find out which method do unlock your RCA Tv.
Most RCA and GE 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.
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
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
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. OK.

try sticking a knife on the top of the dvd slot. don't put a lot of pressure to break it though. turn the dvd player on, and it may open. If this solves the issue, try not to put items on top of the dvd player because it will cause it to stick and not open.
