    I was using a universal remote and hit a button "TV/VA" and now I have EXACTLY the same failure mode as decribed by previous victims. If I unplug the TV it will turn back on in Chinese. Every time I press that button it will lock up front panel keys and screen will fade to black. It appears to be running a program that is for China. Could the tuning be in PAL format? If I go to the Tuning menu line where you set NTSC and PAL, it is missing? But in the manual it is shown? Also where the languages are set it only allows Chinese and English. It should have English, French, Spanish only? ******HELP PLEASE!!!!!!!*******

Well, ill let everyone know that when this happens, might as well throw the T.V. in the garbage, i sent it in and they told me the EPROM chip was fried which shorted out the tube.
so i went out and bought used 32" toshiba on for the time being, then a couple months ago i went out and bought a 40" samsung l.c.d. havent been happier

sorry to be the barrer of bad news

WE took our T.V. to Gragal Electronics in Waterloo, On. and he was able to reset the settings within the tv and it only cost us $81.36 to have it fixed. Apparently other remotes can go in and corrupt the saved settings, which messes up your tv.

Universal remote PX-RC1 changed my PRIMA TV to something else?

sounds like you need a new remote. that circuit board is not too happy when it's crushed in like that. You might be able to make it work, but don't count on it.

The 4-digit RCA code is 1238 if using an older RCA universal remote, or just 238 for the newer 3-digit ones.

I need a code # to program my Universal RCA remote for my Prima TV and my DVD player

I own a One-for-All universal remote, and my booklet says the setup code for a Prima TV ( without a built-in DVD or VCR) is one of the following numbers: 0761, 0783, 0815, 0817. I can not guarantee these numbers will work with your remote, but it is worth a try.
I assume your DVD has been attached separately, and not built into the TV. In some cases, you might not need an additional setup code. Once the TV has been turned on, you simply push the DVD button on your remote, to activate the DVD. The instructions which came with your remote and your DVD should provide you with more details. If the instructions indicate that an additional DVD setup code is required, then please respond by telling me the brand name of your DVD.

Can't get the remote to work

Try pressing the TV button on the Prima remote to make it work on the TV. It should work on the Prima Tv without new codes. Codes would be needed for your cable box.
Consider calling Prima at 866-447-7462 for the codes. They should have a website for the codes or email you the codes for free.

PS Please rate me if this helps.
