To reset it to its factory settings, you must have its original remote control. A universal remote won't go.

The FPA (Front Panel Access) lock is on. This allows you to prevent kids from using the set when you are not there and disables the buttons on the front of the TV. The set should turn on with the remote only, and then you can go back into the menu and turn off the FPA, also called child lock.

Check its horizontal output section circuit for any loose solder terminals. Resolder all suspected solder terminals by applying little more fresh solder. Replace the horizontal output transistor. If this transistor have some leak, it will overheat within minutes will shut down the picture.

Unfortunately a remote is required to disable the Front Panel Lockout. This is to prevent children from circumventing some Parental controls.
It is possible however to access the Lockout with a universal remote,
which can be purchased from places like CVS, Walgreens, Kmart, etc. usually for under $20.00.
If you already have a universal remote laying around it may be just what your looking for.
Please let me know if you need any further help.

IF LED IS BLINKING then following is the situation..............
usually after 4 or 5 yrs EHT ( transformer that supplies voltage to tube ) becomes weak - then TV won't get ON.. means no picture no sound but LED blinks - in some TVs along with EHT 1 or 2 components like resistor, transistors, etc will also gets deffective - so solution is TV circuit board has to be checked to find whether only EHT is deffective or other components are also deffective - price of EHT will be between Rs.250 (US$ 5) to Rs.600 (US$ 12) - iam service engineer (computers, laptops, printers,etc) - bangalore - domlur - 09986222774 - [email protected] - if you are in bangalore then you can call me for service - i think you are living somewhere in america /australia..... - problem is simple but i don't have any idea about EHT COMPONENT 's price & service charge in your place....... IF LED IS ALSO NOT BLINKING then following is the situation............fuse is gone due to deffective component in power section ....BOARD HAS TO BE CHECKED.............. so my suggestion contact near by TV service engineer or approach RCA service centre ....this problem cannot be solved by user unless user is a technical person, having idea about components (resisitors,transistors, diodes, ...etc), having tools like multimeter ,soldering iron , soldering lead ,flux, desoldering coil, etc....

The fault you reports indicates some voltage problems inside it itsef. Check first, for any loose plug in point on your wall power socket. if it all found ok, there will be some loose soldering contacts inside your TVs power inverter section. This is a common fault for all TVs including plasma ones. Usually, loose soldering points are very difficult to locate, as they will be microscopic. The only way to overcome this, is to resolder all the suspected points, especially solder terminals of high wattage resistor, and the regulator device. Resolder most of that points by applying a little more solder, without shorting the adjecent solder points. you must have a concept of soldering to do this job. some knowledge in electronics also is necessary. The most important are confidence and patience. If you have these, do it after open your Tv. You will get sucess. OK.

We would be happy to help with that. Some TV's do not havethe ability to go as high as channel 73; this may be the case for your (enterbrand here). We would recommend changing the channel that your DISH Networkreceiver outputs the picture for your TV2. Start by pressing the"Menu" button, from the main menu press 6 for "SystemSetup", then 1 for "Installation", and then 5 for"Modulator Setup". Under TV2 we are going to change the mode to"Air", the channel displayed beside it should change to 60, selectdone on the right side of the screen to save the changes. Now change thechannel of your TV2 to 60 and you should get the DISH Network programming. Wehope this helps. Thanks so much for being a valued DISH Network customer!

You just unlock your rCA tv by any one following methods. One amoung them will surely unlock it. After unlocking it , you have to set its pass code.

Most RCA and GE TV 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

If the TV is in "parental lock", then it will not respond to the buttons on the front of the TV. Get a cheap universal remote control, program it for RCA, turn the set on and go through the menu to unlock.
