20 Most Recent RCA 20V500T 20" TV Questions & Answers


This TV has no TV/AV selection button at its front panel controls. You should have a remote control to select its inputs. If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one. To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability. Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have. Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the site http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/ Check this site too. http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops. Type in the "brand name" of your device, in the search box [at the top right] of the display window and press Enter. It will make surf easy.

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. 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.

Hi there,

There is not much to do that simply use the remote and go into Main Menu/Preference and set FPA lock to OFF. 

If the TV is on it should say "FPA ON" eacg time you press a button. When in FPA mode, the only button on the TV that should work is the power button, and only to close the TV.  Press and hold the channel up button on the TV and press the volume up button at the same time. If this does not work repeat this but pressing the volume down button. With the original remote you would Press VOL- on the TV's front panel and then CLEAR on the remote for approximately 5 seconds. 

If you have the non working original remote then follow the below link for information on having it repaired -

Unfortunately Its not that simple, every remote has its own codes for different brands. There isn't 1 set code for all brands of remotes so would have to know what type of remote it is and maybe we can find the info on the net.
