The front panel lock can only be unlocked with the remote. Press Menu, then Ch+ or Ch - to select Preferences. Press Ok then use the Ch+ or Ch- buttons to highlight FPA (front panel) lock. Then use the Vol+ and Vol - buttons to select On or Off. Then press Menu repeatedly to exit the menu system. With the FPA lock disabled, you can turn it on from the front panel of the TV by pressing the Menu button. However, with the lock enabled, you can only power off the TV from the front panel.
Since the Input button is also only on the remote, if you look for a universal remote, choose one with both Menu and Input or Source functions. Then try all the RCA codes until you find one that makes all of the remote functions work. The original remote is: RCR130TA1 . A substitute remote that should match all of the functions is available here: http://remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Search&o=c&uid=0&m=20F420T&uuid=13004957447460 .
You will need an RCA Remote or Universal (RCA) may work. Once the Front Panel Assy. is locked the TV will only Power on with a remote. Call an Authorized RCA warranty service center, and offer to leave a deposit for the use of the remote. Power the TV on with the remote. Press Menu on remote. Press CH- (down) button on remote to highlight "Preferences". Press OK button to open menu. Press CH-(down) button to highlight "FPA Lock". Press Vol.+ button to turn off FPA Lock.Press Menu button to return to Main Menu. Press Menu button again to clear On Screen Display.
Most RCA and GE TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset procedure is different depending on the model. Try each method until you find one that works:
Hold down MENU on the remote and VOLUME DOWN on the TV it’s self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
Hold down the 0 on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN buttons on the TV its self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
Hold down the MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
Hold down GO BACK on the remote and MENU on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
Hold down EJECT on the front of the TV and the MENU button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
Depending on the model, one of the methods should unlock the V-chip. Now, if desired, you can change the settings on the V-chip by going to the MENU and going to PARENTAL CONTROLS, or on some sets, going to MENU and then going to TV SETUP, then to V-CHIP SET.
I have never heard of FDA lock. If you mean FPA lock, this is the Front Panel Access lock (also called Child Lock) built into the TV. To unlock FPA, turn the set on with the original remote, enter the menu, navigate to the page with FPA and set it to off.
