Contrary to what you have heard, transistors and chips are silicone and do not age. the components that are more likely to break down are coils and transformers. Any reputable shop can fix an RCA, they are still good sets.

How old is this TV?
My experiance is to not put money into a TV that is over ten years old. TVs stress out their electronic components worse than almost any other electronic product. After 10 years, there are so many parts that are ready to fail that your are probably wasting your money trying to get any more life out of it.
Another option is to wholesale replace the main board from an outfit like Module Exchange at 972-298-1212
Be careful on buying a new one though. Often times, these new technology ones are much worse. Always Google the model number of the set you intend to buy and add the word 'repair' or 'complaint' to see if it is one of the many models that are customer service nightmares being produced by even the most reputable companies today.
Hope ya fix it!

To reset it to its factory settings, you must have its original remote control. A universal remote won't go.

If the TV is in "parental lock", then it will not respond to the buttons on the front of the TV. Get a cheap universal remote control, program it for RCA, turn the set on and go through the menu to unlock.
