My four year old was messing witht he bottons on the front of my Apex AT2702 television set, and not all it shows is a blue screen with a key symbol in the bottom left hand corner.

There are 7 buttons with its front panel including power ON/OFF switch button.They are; From left to right:- Video, Menu, Volume(-ve), Volume(+ve), Channel(-ve) and Channel(+ve). If these buttons are not there, it will be difficult to operate this set without a remote control. If you haven't the remote contro with you now, buy one universal remote control. The universal remote control suited for this set is COMCAST ON DEMAND CUSTOM-3 UNIVERSAL REMOTE control. The setup codes are:-
0748, 0765, 0767

if the tv width is ok try entering to service menu (do not use remote control) as follow:
1) turn the set on.
2) press the menu button and hold it down while pressing the power button.

the volume + button.
4) The screen will display a one line menu, on the left the parameter P00,
and on the right the value of the parameter V00
5) release buttons.
6) using the volume + button change the right parameter until 76
7) using the channel down button change the left parameter until 06 (vertical size)
8) whith the volume + or volume - adjust the screen size.

Why does my RCA TV cycle through channels on its own?

this is the same type of problem happening with other rca models and I know it is the EPROM CHIP but why this is failing is either because of design flaw , dirty enviroment that they were made in , to much voltage or current to the chip or too much of a draw from the chip causing it to fail . Or even a random frequency from the IR sensor or its circut I'm still investigating and testing.
leave the tv unplugged for at least 3 weeks durring this time resolder any solder that don't look good , I did this and it lasted for about 6 months(always plugged in to the wall) before it started doing it again. model # 27v412t

Go into the setup menu and turn off closed captioning. The black box is a text box for CC. Some stations are sending the signal which triggers the box, but are not actually sending any text.

Bad botton panel

You can try powering the unit off, unplugging it for 15 minutes and see if controls return.. It's a long shot, because what you're describing is usually the Eeprom failure, RCA p/n# 241275...
The Eeprom is located at U13102 on the signal board..
