Unfortunately a remote is required to disable the Front Panel Lockout. This is to prevent children from circumventing some Parental controls.
It is possible however to access the Lockout with a universal remote,
which can be purchased from places like CVS, Walgreens, Kmart, etc. usually for under $20.00.
If you already have a universal remote laying around it may be just what your looking for.
Please let me know if you need any further help.

    The FPL, (Front Panel Lockout) when active only locks out the front panel controls on the TV set. Once you have a remote paired with your Brand/Model, it should be able to operate the basic function for your set. Did you buy a new universal remote? Have you followed the instructions on how to program the universal remote to operate your TV?
    Here are the instructions from the Users Manual for activating/deactivating FPL. This will only work if you are able to access this menu function.
    Front Panel Lock
    Selecting this option lets you lock (disable) or unlock (enable) the TV’s front panel. The remote still
    tunes to any channel. When using this as a Parental Control method, remove access to any remote
    that is capable of operating the television.
    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.

Turn off fpa lock without remote


Install an IR Remote App in android phone. The app link below worked for me to remove the fpa lock on. Configure the App for your RCA TV. Set TV as Device type, RCA as the brand. and choose the model (e.g., TV 20 F420T) also, select the Alternate IR Driver.

All the options of the command may appear in a list form. Close that and an actual remote with buttons should appear.

Then Power your tv will turn ON. Press the Menu. Pressing the Channel Down/Up Button to navigate to Preferences. Press OK button on the screen.. Then Navigate to FPA Lock. Press OK again. THis will turn the FPA Lock to Off.

Then you could use your on-TV buttons ZappIR Universal IR Remote Android Apps on Google Play

I hit the FPA and now i am screwed how do i fix this it I cant get into my tv


Child Lock allows you to lock the buttons on the front of the TV.
Press MENU to see the main menu.
Press CH+ or CH- to highlight
Preferences.
Press OK to enter the Preferences
submenu.
Press CH+ or CH- to highlight FPA
(Front Panel) Lock.
Press VOL+ or VOL- to turn on or off
FPA Lock. Choose On to disable all the
buttons on the front of the TV. FPA Lock
On will appear on the TV screen each
time you press buttons on the front of
the TV. You can still operate the TV with
the remote control. You can still use the
POWER button on the front of the TV, but
only to turn off the TV (not on). Set FPA
Lock to Off to cancel this feature so you
can use the buttons on the front of the TV
again.
Press MENU repeatedly to exit the
menu or the menu will automatically
disappear within a few seconds if no
buttons are pressed on the remote
control.
I hope this helps and good luck!

RCA 27V412T FPA LOCK ON & REMOTE LOCK


If the front panel lock is on, you will need a working original remote (or a universal remote properly programmed for RCA) to turn the set on. The IR receiver is next to the buttons on the fromt but the RCA IR receivers are very reliable, and I have yet to see a bad one in a modern RCA TV. Once you turn the set on by remote, you can enter the menu and turn the FPA off.

RCA FPA LOCK


Take the remote and turn the set on. With FPA (Front Panel Access, or Child Lock) on, the set will only turn on with the remote. Enter the menu, navigate to the page with FPA and set it to OFF.
