Question about Televison & Video

3 Answers

RCA 27" Mod.# 27V550T,Ser. # E135C21TT, Chassis # ITC008FBD made in Mexico, March,2004.When you turn on the TV either from the front panel or remote, it typically goes into a Set-Up mode. Then you have to click on "Go-Back", then "Exit" and it asks for a "password." We don't ever remember in-putting a password. We tried several common ones we use, but none work.Sometimes we can get by the "password" screen by filling in bogus numbers and then we get a screen which reads:"This channel has not been approved for viewing. Change channel or press O.K. to enter password and deactivate "Parental Control." We have never had "Parental Control" on this TV. Also, the TV shuts itself off at random and then we go back to square 1 above.We are at our wits end. Help!

    I tried to open the link provided by "scrodamoon" but my PC could not open the link so I still don't have a solution to my problem.

    This was an easy solution even for a neophyte like me. If I can do it, anybody can. I hate to think of what a service call would have cost us since we live on an island.

With TV turned OFF press and hold <CLEAR> button on the remote while pressing <VOLUME DOWN> button on the TV, hold until TV turns on. When the menu appears DO NOT RESET THE PARENTAL CONTROL CODE as the user guide instructs. in the SETUP screen on the LANGUAGE setting. It may be set to some other language, using the remote navigate it to ENGLISH. Then using the remote navigate up to GO BACK. Then navigate to EXIT and hit <OK> button on the remote. All will be back to normal.

RCA 27V550T 27" TV


Problem fixed. I unplugged the TV for 20+ seconds, then before plugging it back in, I shorted ac plug prongs together with a metal key to ensure complete discharge. Plugged TV back in and used procedure to reset password WITH ONE CHANGE TO THE PROCEDURE.

With TV turned OFF press and hold <CLEAR> button on the remote while pressing <VOLUME DOWN> button on the TV, hold until TV turns on. When the menu appears DO NOT RESET THE PARENTAL CONTROL CODE as the user guide instructs. When my menu appeared it was in the SETUP screen on the LANGUAGE setting. It was set to SPANISH, using the remote I navigated to ENGLISH. Then using the remote I navigated up to GO BACK. Then I navigated to EXIT and hit <OK> button on the remote. All was back to normal.
