Power Went out for a minute and TV needs to be reset!!! Lock Mode Problem

I don't have the remote for this TV so, I'm trying to use the menu buttons on the front of the TV to set it up. Power in the house went out for a few minutes and the TV has to be reset.

The TV has a lock mode on it and I don't know how to disable this . . . please help! Any ideas???

    Thank you for the response. I did turn the TV off but when I turn it on again the screen is still blue. My original remote was broken so I bought a cheap replacment that works for vol and channel changes but it doesn't do much more. The TV is still good, I have Direct TV runnning the service????

  • dolfan Feb 08, 2008

    Come on . . . $10 to tell me I need to buy another remote??? There must be an alternative solution???

  • dolfan Feb 09, 2008

    Thanks for trying . . . Which remote should I do this to? The Direct TV one or the cheap replacement one? I appreciate the help.

Hi,

Do the reset test.I give this 50/50 chance of clearing it up. Disconnect the power cord for 4 hours. Then when you power it back up the internal soft codes will automatically reset to factory defaults.

Goodluck,

    Goodluck once again and please don't forget to rate me as fixya..

  • Priya darshan Feb 08, 2008

    well i am trying my best to give you a solution for it but i don't think it will solve your problem cuz u will need an original one..
    Anyways wait for an hour and ill let u know if there is any solution to your problem..

  • Priya darshan Feb 09, 2008

    Hold down the menu key on the remote for 8 seconds to switch it out of that
    mode or back in again.

  • Priya darshan Feb 09, 2008

    Hold the "Display" and "Video Status" buttons
    on the remote simultaneously. The set will bring up a service menu.


    Press the MENU and INFORMATION buttons down together and then press 1
    then 2 then 3 while still holding the first 2 buttons down.

  • Priya darshan Feb 09, 2008

    Now the those two are the only solutions to solve your problem.If these don't work you have to buy a new remote..

  • Priya darshan Feb 09, 2008

    Right now you have a cheap replacement one so i want you to try it on that first if it doesn't work then go for the direct TV one..

My matsui tv 28WNO5(A) will not turn on from standby


Try pressing the small reset button on the back, it works, and you will not loose any stored information which caused the unit to go in the stand by mode.

or
Have you tried turning it off for an hour and then turning it back on. This happens to me quite often and leaving it off for a while ususally allows it to come back on. Also have you tried to press the TV/AV button on the remote as sometimes it switches to TV mode when its on standby and then standby won't work as its on TV mode and needs to go back on to AV mode. Basically just press the AV button on the digibox remote and then try standby.

or
if the batteries are removed and left for about 20 minutes before being replaced again, everything works as it should.
or
if any of the above suggestions does not work then you have to open the unit and on the main board of the tv there is a thin mini tube light like component called fuse you will have to replace that fuse .the fuse is very very cheap and you can easily get it at any electronics shop.and if still the unit does not work then there is a major fault in the power supply board and should be taken to the service center for diagnosing the fault that it is repairable or not.but i hope the above information provided will definately help you to solve your problem.

My rca truflat tv is stuck on fpa lock mode and I don't have the remote. How can I unlock it?


Most RCA and GE TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset procedure is different depending on the model. Try each method until you find one that works:

1. Hold down MENU on the remote and VOLUME DOWN 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 on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN buttons on the TV its self 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 on the remote and MENU on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.

5. Hold down EJECT on the front of the TV 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.

Hello
If you have its original remote control, you can unlock it by one amoung the following methods. If you don't have its original remote control, try to gather it from any of your friends or relatives to get the lock out. Then you can use any other remote controls.
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.

OK.

I enabled the FPA lock on my RCA 20f511T and it shut off. Now I can't turn it on with the panel on the TV or the remote.


Disconnect the power cord from the outlet for AT LEAST 30 MINUTES, that should cause the TV to reset back to factory default settings, then you can start over with initial set up,etc, after you restore power to it.
Good luck!

I can`t switch on my g-hanz TV


http://resources.jvc.com/Resources/00/00/94/YA059ien.pdf This is a link to a pdf copy of the owners manual for your model television. You can find all the setting and function controls listed in the manual. To reset the television to factory settings, you must unplug it from the a/c power source for about thirty minutes. This will reset the television to the factory settings. You can do the same thing with the remote control. Just remove the batteries and press the input button continuously for about 1 minute. This will drain all the power out of the microprocessor and reset the remote control to the factory settings. You can then use the owners manuals to reset the television and remote functions.On turning on the television the interactive plug in menu will appear. From here you can set the language you want to use for the television. All of this is explained in the owners manual.You will need a pdf reader and writer to read the owners manual and the writer to make a copy for your own use. I hope this information helps you with your problems with the remote control and television. Thank you for using FixYa and have a nice day!
