How to factory reset a Hitachi 51S500

I don't have the remote for the tv and I don't know if I should buy it. I locked the front panel of the tv by accident and I programed a universal remote to the tv. The Menu button works and I know how to unlock the front panel but the Select button won't work on the remote. Thus, I can't select the on/off option on the locks. I want to know if there is a way to factory reset the tv by removing something or putting in a code. Thank you in advanced.

The only Hard Reset is - unplug the set for 20 minutes and then plug it back in and turn it on.

I have a "classic electronics" universal remote


I don't mean to be smart. but the best option for you is to go buy a new remote from wal-mart. As this remote sounds like it is an off brand remote and you will most likely never find the instructions for it.

I locked my front panel by accident and have no remote for my rca 20F514TD..how do I unlock?


Hello
To open front panel control function you must have its Origitnal Remote control. If you have lost it, try to borrow it from your friends or relatives; who owns the same model of TV as you have; just to unlock the front panel lock.

[1] From the PARENTAL CONTROL menu, press the up or down arrow to highlight
Lock Fr. Panel.

[2] Press the right or left arrow to turn on (box has check mark) or off (box doesn't
have check mark) front panel lock.
OK.

My emerson 20 inch flat screen tv is encased in a dog house for outdoor use. I can't get to the back to see the model number and I want to buy a remote control for it. Is there a universal emerson...


You should be okay just buying any generic universal remote. Any remote requires programming to work with a specific TV, but universal remotes are easily programmable. The instructions included with the universal remote will detail how you program that remote to work with your TV (usually along the lines of simply putting it in programming mode, and pressing the power button until it turns your TV off, and then locking it in)

Ns-20lcd in locked mode will not unkock with a remote which I ordered. I there a master reset somewhere?


Insignia will tell you that you MUST have original remote to unlock. You press and hold Display button for 5 or 10 seconds. My problem is Best Buy tried to repair mine 3 times and one of those times replaced a board inside and original remote will note work and they will make no attempt to help me figure out what is inside. Mine has been locked for over a year. Locked by accident with universal remove.

1. Locate second power switch on back hidden below curve, left side if facing front of TV.
2. Turn TV on using this power switch while holding in MENU button on right side of TV.
3. This is reset the Lock feature!!

No remote


Hello sweettexas,

I you use a universal remote you might be able to use some of your programming features, you can get such a remote from Best Buy, Radio Shack, Target, or Wal-Mart. Now for the down side with the universal remote you will only get some of your programming functions as I said earlier. If you want all of those features you are going to have to contact the manufacture and order a remote for your television. There are places on line such as ebay, or amazon where you can buy a remote for this set, and this might be considered as an option also. In any event whether
you buy a universal remote or buy an OEM remote, you will need a remote to "properly" setup your TV. You can use the front panel controls for limited setup however doing that is tedious.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

FPA LOCK ON


FPA means the front panel is locked by the Parental Access Control Menu.

Unfortunately, the FPA can only be removed using the remote. There are no magic front panel button combinations.

The cheapest way out is to buy a Universal Remote Control at Walmart (about $10) and program it to your RCA TV. Then you can go into the Parental Control Menu and remove the lock.

Turn off child lock


To unlock the Panel Lock, Parent Lock, or Child Lock, follow these steps:
  1. Turn on your TV.
  2. On the remote, press the Menu button. The Set-Up Menu appears.
  3. Scroll to the Key Lock function and set function to Off.
  4. Press the Exit button to exit.
Note: If you don't have a remote, you may be able to do the same thing by pressing the Menu button on the front or side panel of your TV and using the volume or channel up and down buttons on the TV to scroll to the Key Lock function and set it to Off.
