RCA P52960 R/P lost all controls..remote & panel!1 HELP

I was watching a movie last night and I tried to lower volume to answer the telephone and remote was big deal right,so i end the phone convo and replace batteries in remote..still nothing. Next I try to power off with the remote and still its unresponsive. I then try to use the button panel controls on the set itself and they are also unresponsive.

My TV has been on ever since,I'm afraid if I unplug the set (hoping for a reset) it will not turn back on.

Picture is still perfect and sound is also good (just no controls of the TV)

    Well...Goodnews. A week or so after posting my problem here I had a power outage due to Thunderstorms (not rare at all for this rural town) and once my power was restored, I used the TV remote and BLAM....Tv turned on like normal all controls have been working flawless ever since.

    So,in the end all I needed to do was unplug for a few mins and the unit reset to factory settings.

    Sorry for not posting this sooner.

My rca d52w26 convergence is gone.

Look in the on screen menu for convergence and if it is not there you have a open ( bad ) protection part on the main board, a kit exists for most of these sets for this===buttons alone will not likely help here.

the convergence menu missing is a result of this and the part in question is often bad because of bad solder connections.

If you need more info let me know.

My RCA HDTV remote won't work with the regular tv. It was working fine last night until i pressed the tv botton and the volume button.

One thing you can try is to take the batteries out of the remote and then press every button on the remote, then replace the batteries. I have used this technique several times and it works. If that doesn't help try leaving the batteries out over night, this may reset the remote.

I hope this helps.
