Hi there. I'm sorry to hear about your TV. I was wondering if you could give me the make and model number?

Do you have the original remote?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
THE TELEVISION IS TO HEAVY FOR ME TO TURN IT ON THE STAND
ON THE FRONT IT SAYS RCA TRU FLAT HDTV AND I BELIEVE IT IS A 2006
And do you have the original remote?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
YES

Good. Here we go.

There are several ways of unlocking the parental controls on RCAs.

Here are the most common.

1. Simultaneously hold down MENU on the remote and VOL DOWN on the TV for about 5 seconds. Although you will not see any indication of the fact, the lock will be off.

OR

2. Simultaneously hold down 0 (zero) on the remote and VOL DOWN on the TV for about 5 seconds. Again, although you will not see any indication of the fact, the lock will be off.

OR

3. Simultaneously hold down the TV button on the remote and MENU on the TV for about 5 seconds.

OR

4. Simultaneously hold down GO BACK on the remote and Menu on the TV for about 5 seconds.

Give those a try. And try and get me the actual model number please.
