No problem , was asking as it often happens when trying to program a cable company remote for example.
The tv has gone in self test mode at this point and its eeprom chip is now beyond external control or recovery I`m afraid .
This means the main board or replacing that eeprom if it can be found .
This is a very common problem in RCA and other brands
Let me check a few things
How old is this tv now ?
O.k then out of warranty unless you got an extended one
As I said this is a main board problem , namely its eeprom chip and that main board part # 65120AE0010424-A3 can be bought at the link below for $150 if you are into this ;
If that is not your cup of tea so to speak then to have this repaired at home could cost you around $250 to $300 parts included and perhaps $50 less if you take it to the shop yourself .
