I am trying to plug a play station 2 into the rca f19240 and do not see ports for the three colored prongs that I need to conect


Many of RCA's smaller sets didn't come with AV input jacks. They only had a connector for an antenna or cable wire. To use a device like a DVD player or game console with a TV like this, you need an RF modulator. This takes the audio and video signals (those three cables you can't plug in to the TV right now) and creates a signal that the TV can tune in on channel 3 or 4. Unless you replace the TV with one that has AV inputs, the modulator is your only solution.

I was fooling aroud with my control and now I can not change the channel


What kind of remote. The television remote or a remote like Dish Network that has mode buttons to control several items?
You might first just pull the battery and leave out for 30 seconds or so and put them back in and see if that resets it.

Got to get back to factory settings. parental control is on (somehow) and not allowing some programming. 19'' RCA 2003 but don't have exact model #


You can find the model number on the back of the TV. Going back to factory settings won't solve the problem you're having. The only thing that can overcome parental control is either a repair shop, or a special code that you would have to get from the manufacture. Its called an omniscient code meaning it will always work. Some TVs have them, but some do not. Only the manufacture or a service center that has the service manual for your model can tell you the right answer. Don't waste your time trying to fix the problem yourself. Parental locks are designed to stand up to the prying minds of kids and teenagers. Call RCA customer service for the information I spoke of above.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.

My television is locked on parental control and I do not have the code, how do I unlock it? Model # F19431


Simultaneously press and hold VOL- on the television and VOL- on the remote for 3 seconds. (Nothing appears on the screen - Parental controls simply unlock.) You can re-enter a password via Lock Parental Controls, if you wish.

Override Parental Control


Customer service at RCA stated that you have to simultaneously push the menu button on the TV and the volume down button on the factory issued remote hold for three seconds and the parental should unlock and allow access again.

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
Before going further; try a hard reset first. If it does not help you, replace the main digital board. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.
