    Hi norman

    The problem you have is caused by the switches under the buttons at the front of the set, also called tact switch.

    There should be five of them, and they need to be replaced or if your using only the remote control they can just be removed.

    There is two type of those switches: stand up and lay flat on the circuit board.

    You`ll have to pull the chassis out to find out.

    Let me know

If you did forget the passcode to your RCA Tv, you can reset it. Simoultaneously press "VOL+" on the remote control, and "CH+" button on the front of the tV. The display will appear for you to enter your new password.

Speaking from experience here: RCA TVs have solder problems. If you have a soldering iron, the first thing you should do is pull the chassis out, flip it over and check the solder joint near the fly back transformer. (will look something like this).
Inspect carefully and look for cracks in the solder. Use this as a starting point then work your way across the board, reflow any bad solder you find.

I can't begin to tell you how many RCA TVs I have fixed just by doing this... too many to count.

I hope this was of some assistance.

RCA 27' tru flat sdtv- power light comes on- no display,no sound.

How do you unlock your TV from Protective Mode? There is a certain code that you need in order to unlock the Television. The technicians are saying that it went into Protective Mode, when it umplugged all by itself. I need the code so I can watch my TV again.
