MY RCA TTE 20V500T TELEVISION IS STUCK IN CHILD SAFETY AND TURNED OFF W/NO REMOTE TO ACCESS THE MENU


Hi,

Without remote its not possible to disable child lock. If it possible to arrange the remote then you can do the following to override the lock.



1.Press VOL+ on the remote and CHANNEL + on the
front of the TV at the same time. Enter New Pwd.
will appear on the screen. (You must be in the Enter
password screen when attempting this).


2.Press the number buttons to enter a four-digit code.
The code will appear on the screen as you enter it.

3.Press OK to save the code.

4.Press MENU repeatedly to exit the menu or the menu
will automatically disappear within a few seconds if
no buttons are pressed on the remote control

I still cannot turn off the fdp lock on my rca 20v500t


Most RCA 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. Try this link for more details.

Blue screen need to know how to scan channels to get input to come back up


Will need to know what tv you have, but you are right it is probably your input button. if you pushed it on your remote then there should be an input button on remote. otherwise you will have to go into the tv menu and setup it up there.
if you respond with model and make of tv, might get more info.

FDA Lock


I have never heard of FDA lock. If you mean FPA lock, this is the Front Panel Access lock (also called Child Lock) built into the TV. To unlock FPA, turn the set on with the original remote, enter the menu, navigate to the page with FPA and set it to off.
