Question about RCA T20TF667 20 in. TV/VCR Combo

1 Answer

Remote Control not working

Wax dripped down the front of this unit and rendered the remote un-useable. I was told it needed a new chip but none of the repair shops can find one. I need to re-teach the TV what channels local cable offers but need the remote to do that. If you know how to do this without the remote please tell me. Also, any suggestions to either fix this one or find a new chip?

The IR receiver chip is probably one of a couple that everyone uses (possibly from Princeton Technologies) but are nearly impossible to find in single quantities.

You didn't mention whether the remote control got the hot wax or the set itself.
Wax is a pretty good insulator so it wouldn't bother the electrical side of things.
Which got 'waxed?' The LED of the remote or the set's receiving eye gone blind?

Rca model 20f510td. parental lock


Hello
You must have its original remote control to unlock the parential lock. If you haven't it with you now, try to buy it or gather it from any of your friends or relatives who owns the same model; just to unlock it. After unlock, you can use universal remote or so.
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.
Hold down EJECT button on the front of the TV set 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.
OK.
