TV power button on my RCA True Flat 27" screen TV


RCA TVs come with a child lock capability called V-Chip. It's a parental control system which allows you to block programs and films by content, age-based ratings and the ratings which come with the movies. The parental control is a code, sent by the broadcaster to your television. The V-Chip will not work if the broadcaster doesn't send the control, or if the parental controls are switched off or unlocked. The controls are set up in the TV's main menu. The default is off.
From the main menu choose "Parental Controls;" it's option six.
Choose the first option, V-Chip TV Rating Limit, and using the arrow keys and the OK button on the remote, scroll through until the TV-MA rating appears. Press the right arrow button to move the highlight over to the "Status" field and toggle to "View." Press the OK button. This will set the age-based ratings to Mature.
From the Parental Controls menu, select the second option, V-Chip Movie Ratings Limit and change the rating to TV_MA and the "Status" to "View."
From the Parental Controls menu select the third option, V-Chip Unrated Program Block and select item one, which will be "View."
Select the fourth option, which is "Channel Block." Highlight the Channel field and using the channel up and down buttons, go through and check they are all set to 'View." Any set to "Block" will need to be toggled back to View.
Lock the controls to activate the changes using item six on the "Parental Controls" menu.

How do i reset this tv?


The TV will search for active channels and add them itself. Use the remote to select the on screen menu and go to the Channel Setup mode. Then just push the up arrow and it will add the channels for you automatically.

There is a possibility that this set has another "mode' where you can select "hotel" or "standard" if it's there make sure you set that to standard the "hotel" mode disables some of the features like the ability to set the channels. I can't find this owners manual on line for free (RCA usually won't provide them) I can't be more specific. I doubt that you got a copy of the owners manual when you got the TV.

I bought a 32LC5DC Lg tv from an hotel auction. The side panel doesnt work. The thing I need to find is how to access the "setup menu" inside the regular menu. I can get into the regular menu just fine,...


The only thing that would cause this is a lock!

If you ever forget your password, key in ‘7’, ‘7’, ‘7’, ‘7’
on the remote control.

If unlocking does not free up the unit menu then the unit has most likely had a software upgrade at some point to disable these functions permanently. This is normal hotel based systems in order to prevent them being used if they are stolen. In this case you will have to contact LG directly with Model no and Serial No details to get them to assist you.

Locked channels on a tv


You need to replace the eeprom IC in your set. Hospitality tv's ( i.e. hospital,motel etc...)have a eeprom IC that restricts programming and the use of the menu so guests can't mess up the tv picture or get unauthorized programming that they want you to pay for or just don't offer more than 27 channels. I have done this for customers before. The eeprom IC is an 8-pin IC that is right next to the microprocessor and is easy to change. Be careful soldering on an RCA board though...too much heat will lift the solder pads.Good luck!

Zenith Concierge hotel tv wont work with my xbox 360


I doubt the TV even has a tuner if it is designed for a hotel. It may be a "dumb" receiver, nothing else. Do to channel 2 and then press the down arrow for channel, does it flip to 138 or AV1?

Channels changing by themself


I have seen problems like this caused by spilled liquid. Bad switches can definitely do this as well, and can be, themselves, filled with dried sugary goo or corrosion. I wish you could still download schematics for these, but TTE (RCA's new horrible Chinese owners) shut this off. Now they want $40 a pop for schematics, making repair unfeasable for many units. If the switches are a standard type, you can get them many places. You can also clean them by removing them from the board and washing them in isopropyl alcohol, with limited success. Parts for older RCA/GE sets are still available. Most good distributors will research and order these for you gladly, so you can merely call and tell them what you want. The new Chinese RCA/GE/Proscan units are essentially disposable, so don't get a new one of this brand.
