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.

While watching tv, there was a faint "pop" and the tv went dead. it will not turn on by front buttons or remote.


Does the power indicating flash three times then go out when power is pressed? If so you may need a deflection board which is famous for problems with the ITC222 chassis.

My tv. proscan mod. ps50700 won`t turn on


The PS50700 uses the 195 series chassis. The most common cause of the set not starting up is a shorted flyback (high voltage) transformer. Sometimes a shorted flyback will also cause the horizontal output transistor to short too. These parts need to be tested and/or replaced by a tech familiar with the RCA 195 chassis.

yes it is a flyback transfomer is a very sensitive piece of equipment also known as a lot or lopt in you case i would say that the case has cracked on your flyback you may get by however if the damage inside is not significant yet be wrapping the flyback transformer in black electricians tape but this should not be a permanent solution
