Hi.

If the TV stays in standby, then it is not locked, but probably faulty. The standby is forced because a fault had been detected.

When picture is in lock mode, channel may not be displayed, but on screen display and functions will work. A lock sign will be displayed on screen.

In that case you need the original remote to unlock the TV.
You have to get in the password entry screen, then press the following buttons on the remote, one at a time.: Mute, Display,Clear and Reset, this unlocks parental controls and you can re-enter a new password.
On some model you press and hold Menu on the TV AND volume down on the remote for 3 or 5 seconds. TV will reset, Parental Controls will unlock, and you can re-enter a new password.

In your case the TV is not locked, but in protect mode, because a fault had been detected.

If the TV went in standby and does not wake up, then the TV is in protect mode.

In protect mode higher voltages from PSU gets shut down and TV remains in standby.(see also Why my TV does not start up and remains in...)

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so. Then connect powr

If that does not work, and you keep having the TV in protect mode, it means that there is a fault.

In that case call the phone support number listed on the user manual to arrange repair.

Regards.

Ginko.

Is RCA 24V511T digital or analog? Also can I use a universal remote or do I need the replacement for the original remote that came with it? I


Hello
This CRT based tV is an anlogue one. You can use a universal remote control, except to unlock the FPA lock to this TV. By anyway, this TV has been locked with FPA lock, you must have its original remote control to unlock the lock. You can use most of the RCA universal remote controls with this TV.
RCA RCR 311W will be better. The setup codes are:
1000, 1002, 1004, 1005, 1014, 1025, 1078, 1081, 1095, 1096, 1097, 1098, 1099, 1100, 1101, 1111, 1128, 1130, 1132, 1134, 1144, 1146, 1149, 1171, 1205
OK.

Rca 24v511t tv is locked in fpc


Hello
To unlock the FPA lock, you must have its original remote control handset. If you haven't it now, just buy ome from the authorised service center for RCA at your town, or just borrow it from andy of your friends or relatives who owns the smae model TV.
To unlock try the folloing methods. One amoung them will surley unlock your tv.

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.

FLP stands for -- Front Lock Panel - I found it in a friends RCA TV manual. It is a lock you can place on the tv front panel buttons. When this is locked you can only use the remote. So once I knew that I went to RCA Service Center and ordered a new remote.. problem solved. So since your person couldn't even understand my problem, let alone solve it. I would like a refund please.

Thank you

Ffa lock


I had the same problem. I purchased a universal remote control at wal-mart an just turned the televison on and it came on.... I hope this helps. You really need a remote to by-pass this issue. The one I purchased was only eight dollars.
