The FPA lock is a control panel lock to keep children, for example, from changing the channel or input by pressing buttons on the TV. You enable or disable the lock from the original remote control or one that matches all of the original's features. Only the power button will work with the FPA lock enabled. (The power button may only allow for turning off the TV.)
For directions on how to disable the FPA, you will need to add a comment with the make and model of the TV. Every manufacturer uses a different pattern to toggle the lock on and off.
Okay Welkins, try to power of the tv and power it on by keep on pressing POWER-BUTTON and MENU-BUTTON at the same time,... and see if the tv start into de menu mode....if it does...just keep on using volume "up and "down" button combined with channel "up" and "down" buttons to select an reach the UNLOCK-MODE...most of the time the MENU button will be the enter button after each sellection....hoping to inform you correctly I remain,Yours Friendly.
Hello First of all, you must ahve its original remote control to unlock FPA lock. If you have it, go through the folloing steps. * Hold down Menu button on the remote control, and the Volume Down button on the at the same time for at least 4 seconds. "The set won't say so, but the lock will be released". ** Hold down Zero button on the remote control, and the Volume Down button on the TV. The set won't say so, but the lock will be released. *** Hold down Menu button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be released.
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.
TV won't turn on • Press the TV button. Make sure the TV is plugged in.• Check the wall receptacle (or extension cord) to make sure it is "live" by plugging in something else.• Something might be wrong with your remote control. Press the POWER button on the front of the TV. If the TV turns on, check the remote control solutions on page 26.• The front panel controls may be locked (disabled). Use the remote control to unlock the front panel controls by selecting the Lock Fr. Panel in the PARENTAL CONTROL menu and press OK (box won't have check mark).Buttons don't work • If you're using the remote control, press the TV button first to make sure the remote is in TV mode.• The front panel controls may be locked (disabled). Use the remote control to unlock the front panel controls by selecting the Lock Fr. Panel in the PARENTAL CONTROL menu and press OK (box won't have check mark).• Unplug the TV for two minutes and then plug it back in. Turn the TV on and try again.TV turns off unexpectedly • Sleep timer might have been activated. Go to page 24 for instructions.• KidPass might have been activated. Go to page 21 for instructions.• Wake-Up timer turned on the TV and no remote or front panel buttons were pressed for two hours.• Electronic protection circuit may have been activated because of a power surge. Wait 30 seconds and then turn on again. If this happens frequently, the voltage in your house may be abnormally high or low. • Unplug TV. Wait five minutes. Plug it in again.

If you forget your password you can reset it. Make sure the TV is off. Simultaneously press and hold VOL< on the TV?s front panel and CLEAR on the remote for approximately 5 seconds. Enter a new password next time you access the PARENTAL CONTROL menu.
Front Panel Lock
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.
Of course if you don't have a remote that can bring up the menu I don't know how this can be done.
