I don't know if this will help your problem, but we were having similar problems with our Toshiba 32A33. None of the buttons on the TV or remote worked, the volume would go up and down uncontrollably, it wouldn't turn back on unless unplugged for several hours
Try either taping a penny very firmly over the TV/video button on the set to keep it depressed at all times, or wedging a piece of plastic in it to keep it down (Cardpsycho's solution).  However you do it, keeping this button depressed solved every problem we had.

    Hi folks,


    Just to update, the penny method hasn't work very long, but I still couldn't find a piece of plastic to wedge, so now I've tried the corner of a wooden shim.  I wedged it in until the button was depressed, then snapped it off and taped it down firmly.  So far, so good...  Back to the Red Sox for now...

I nedd to unlock my fpa on my RCA flat screen model 20V500T


Most RCA 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.

  1. 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.

My tv won't play my DVD player. I don't have the original remote, but it is programed to a universal remote. Whenever I press the "TV/VCR" button all kinds of numbers pop up on the screen and the tv...


Your TV is responding as if the Game button was pressed on the original remote. The additional stuff on the screen is to let you set the best brightness and other settings for video gaming. These screens should disappear on their own in 10 seconds if no buttons are pressed on the remote. See the manual http://www.symphonic.us/support/manuals.aspx and fill in the model number. If the remote were still controlling the TV, the CH up and down buttons would let you choose the Picture settings to change and volume up and down buttons would change the setting.

The TV/VCR button on the universal remote may be swapping the remote to control the VCR only. (Thus losing the ability to control the TV.) (What does the manual say about the button for the universal remote?) You may want to consider a different universal remote - programmable or http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Search&o=c&uid=0&m=ST419E&uuid=12844254442790 which has an exact substitute.

Check your cables for the sound issue (try new ones) and make sure that they are fully seated in the jacks.

I hope this helps.

Menu Screen pops up, try to exit and goes to video 1


This could be a stuck button on the front control panel or a bad solder connection on one of the switches on the front control panel.

Front panel buttons and remote have stopped working.


Is the favorite channel menu a function that is normally accessed by a button on the remote?

If so, that button on the remote might be stuck.
If this is the case, the menu may at times pop up all by itself and other buttons on the remote and on the TV's front panel may not respond at all (it had happened on my remotes more than once).

Try to clean the remote control (the housing, rubber pad with knobs, circuit board) with ethyl alcohol, when you clean the housing, you should also clean the holes through which the buttons protrude, there might be some dirt that keeps the button stuck.

It may also be a stuck button on the TV front panel, so check these too.

Also, it could be something else, i just wrote the description of a problem and the solution which to me seemed most likely.

Hope you get it fixed.

One of the front control switches, that are located in the back of the buttons on the front of the set most likly are damaged or broken. These switchs are small and your going to need to pull out the entire chassis of the TV set to replair or replace them. If you have solid state TV repair experience thenm it should not be a big deal, but if you DONT please seek out a local tech to assist you with this repair as sliding out a TV printed circuit board can be a tricky thing, as it can bend ,crack or pop the surface mounted componets right off the board. A repair like this shouldnt cost alot. really all depends on if the board is damaged or not. good Luck
