I have an RCA tv model #F25305 that I have forgotten the parental code. 

I do NOT have the original remote, and have tried all fixes found here with no success.

Is there a master password for this model or any other suggestions?

Hi Shanny,

I found this in the TV's manual:

If you forget your password, press and hold TV on the remote and the
MENU button on the television simultaneously for 3 seconds. Parental
controls will then unlock and you can re-enter a password via Lock
Parental Controls.

Quick tip: Make sure you aim the remote at the TVs sensor while you press the TV button,  and hold the menu button in on the front of the television.

Hi there,

 THANK YOU so very much, it worked!!!

I even called RCA tech line, they said to hold the volume down on remote and menu on tv, did NOT work.  I was so frustrated! You made my day, Thanks again.

You're welcome. That combination does work on some of their other models, just not yours. You'd think they'd know that!
