RCA Scenium D52W135D TV/DVD combo stuck in DVD mode

My TV/DVD combo unit's DVD player is not working properly. When the TV is switched to DVD mode, it just displays a black screen and I cannot toggle it back to TV mode. I'm fine with the DVD player not working and I found the post that describes how to disable the DVD player, so I intend to do that to prevent this problem. I just need to know how to get it back into TV mode. This happened two other times and after unplugging the TV for some time, it cleared the memory and powered on in TV mode. I left it unplugged for about 84 hrs but it didn't reset.

So my questions are how can I get it out of DVD mode? And will disabling the internal dvd player prevent this from happening again?

Make sure that no disk is inside the player then press Menu on the tv - if you press it more than 10 seconds it cancels whatever function the player is thinking it must do and brings the Menu forward, you should be able to get out of it from there.
If even this doesn't work then the processor from the dvd player has failed and it sends jumbled signals that are blocking the tv processor - your only hope is to physically remove the connection between the player and the mainboard of the tv.

    I held the menu button down on the face of the tv for more than 10 seconds. Nothing happened. Do you have any more suggestions? If we can get it out of dvd mode would disabling the internal dvd player via the menu prevent this from happening?

    Thanks

    Unfortunately there is no other way of exiting the dvd mode apart removing the connection between the dvd unit and the tv since you cannot access the Menu. Actually you should remove it completely, that would be better.



    And yes, removing the dvd will remove the cause for your problems, the faulty dvd processor. Disabling the dvd from the menu later will be helpful but not truly necessary - if you would access it by accident the tv will lock just like now but a simple restart will cure that (not like now).

    Ok Thanks. One last question. Is disconnecting the dvd player something I can do or do I need to hire a tv tech? I called one before about it, but by the time he came out the TV reset from being unplugged and he just took my money. Didn't even try to play a dvd much less fix it.

    Thanks

How do I disable the built in dvd player


That set is a beauty if it is equipped with the built in DVD player--they were all poor quality---only possible but not easy thing is it can be got at by removing entire front grill beneath the front screen and has only a few plugs to actually remove the unit.

I presume you have tried to change inputs with the remote etc.

My GE universal remote for RCA Scenium tv doesn't work the DVD part


If this is a combo unit (TV with DVD built in) you need the original remote---Universals almost always are missing key features the original remote had as most companies have someone else make the unit and put their name on it.

Set is 7 years old - it turns off intermintently


Ours used to do that - and then we moved it to another state with us. Since the move it doesn't shut itself off anymore. I suspect that the problem was dirt and dust inside which got knocked loose in the move and the shutdown was due to thermal limits being exceeded. You may want to try vacuuming or blowing out the dust inside if you feel comfortable opening up the unit.
