Question about RCA P61960 61" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

TV has a mind of its own

Television will not turn on automatically using the remote or manually(pushing power button on tv). It takes a couple of trys to get it on and once it is on the menu screen automatically pops up in spanish and it will not go away. It's like the tv has a mind of its own. I manually press the buttons on the tv and it does not do the function I selected. For example, if I press the volume button the channel will turn and if I press the power button (to turn it off) the menu screen will come up or some red numbers and letters that read: P O 1.2 V O Any advice?

    I have the same thing as the above,it is just the same thing.I cannot use the remote,so I bought a new remote. It worked once and then it would not work any longer. To turn it on manually you must first hit menu on the front panel then on or off,the same to turn it off. The same code shows on the screen as the above after being on for a while. [email protected]

The front panel buttons are your trouble,you can disconnect these,first unplug the unit and remove the back cover,just below the top screws you can look under and see the top of the pictures tubes,in front of the middle tube is a small board,unplug the top right cable,this will disconnect the front buttons and you can use your remote to control the set,hope this helps

I don't have the original remote for my Telefunken LED MODEL NR TLEDD-32FHDB, Serial nr TLEDD-32FHDB35082015SKD2564 I can put the power of TV on but cant change channels as the teli is on Keylock

To turn on your TV without the remote, just walk over to the TV and hit the power button.
  1. Read through any manuals that came with your television if you still have them.
  2. Check if your TV has a visible touch power button. ...
  3. Check the the left and right sides and the top of your TV, some TVs have power buttons there.

How do I program this RCA nightclub universal remote for my Samsung smart TV

First understand that you need a little patience with this remote, it's a little slow, it may take a few seconds in between pushing buttons for it to react to your TV.

1)
-Turn on TV manually first.

we're going to try and get the remote paired to your particular tv

2)
-Facing RCA universal remote towards TV, press and hold both the POWER and TV buttons on the remote at the same time.. until the RCA universal remote POWER button lights up and is constantly on.

-Then press the PLAY button on RCA universal remote

(POWER button on remote should be blinking after pressing PLAY -- what the remote is doing is trying to program your TV with a list of codes. if your TV does not automatically shut off after a minute, press the PLAY button again. your TV should shut off. wait a few seconds before trying to press PLAY button again if you need to try again.)

3)
Assuming remote turned off TV. Now let's try to get the remote to turn on your TV

On the remote at top right is a REVERSE button, press that. You should see the POWER button on the remote blink once in response to you doing that.

Watch for the power on light on your TV.. your TV may take a few seconds to power on..

Wait a couple seconds. if your TV has not turned back on, press the REVERSE button again. the POWER button should blink once again in response

If your TV did not turn on. You may have to repeat pushing the REVERSE button waiting a couple seconds for the remote to try turning on your TV. For some people this can take several times, if not a dozen times. Just be sure to be patient and wait a couple seconds in between pressing the REVERSE button again. (what the RCA universal remote is doing is going through a list of codes trying to find the right model to pair to)

4)
Assuming the remote finally turned on your TV.. We are almost done. We programmed the remote to turn off the TV and turn on the TV. now we want to press the STOP button on the RCA universal remote to lock in those codes into the remote. After pressing the STOP button the light on the remote POWER button should turn off.

5)
We are done. You should be able to change the channels and raise and lower the volume of your TV.
