RCA TV Parental Reset Code: First select parental control from the menu. You will be asked to enter your password. Press and hold the "volume +" and "channel +" buttons on your television (not the remote) for 8 seconds. You will see a message that the parental controls have been unlocked.
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.
If you forget your password, press and hold TV on the remote and the MENU button on the television simultaneously for 3 seconds. Parental controls will then unlock and you can re-enter a password via Lock Parental Controls.
Make sure you aim the remote at the TVs sensor while you press the TV button, and hold the menu button in on the front of the television.
"If you forget your password, simultaneously press and hold MENU on the
television and volume down on the remote for 3 seconds...Nothing
appears on the screen, Parental Controls simply unlock and you can
re-enter a password via Lock Parental Controls."
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.
here is my solution. somebody either needs to give me a solution without a remote or fuckin mail me a remote. and if i ever run into these RCA dipshits, ima beat some ***** *** for puttin the damn lock on there in the first place.

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.
