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:
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
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
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.
Hold down GO BACK on the remote and MENU on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
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.
Unfortunately a remote is required to disable the Front Panel Lockout. This is to prevent children from circumventing some Parental controls. It is possible however to access the Lockout with a universal remote, which can be purchased from places like CVS, Walgreens, Kmart, etc. usually for under $20.00. If you already have a universal remote laying around it may be just what your looking for. Please let me know if you need any further help.
I have a Panasonic CT-27D12D with the exact same symptoms with the exception that my LOCK SET was OFF. I call the Panasonic technical servicxe and they had me to press simultaneously the "POWER" and "ACTION" buttons on the TV for about 5 seconds. A Self Check screen appear with OK's beside a list of functons checked. Next I was told to turn OFF the TV for about 5 seconds then turn it back ON and see if I could enter my Lock code. It worked. The procedure apparently reset everything.
