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 accidentally turned on the fpa lock and don't have a remote. What now?? Any hope? I also could not get the CC up before I got locked out.


Hello
To turn out FPA lock with RCA TV, you must have its original remote control handset. If you haven't one, just buy a new one of borrow it from your friends or relatives, who own the same model of RCA TV. After unlock, you can use any other remote control. If you are using the original remote control, do the following to unlock it.

Most RCA TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset is different depending on the model. Try each number until you find the one that works for you.
  1. Hold down the MENU button on the remote and VOLUME DOWN button 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
  2. Hold down the 0 (zero) button on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN button on the TV itself at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  3. 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. 4- Hold down GO BACK button on the remote and MENU button on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
Hold down EJECT button on the front of the TV set 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.
OK.

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!

FPA LOCK


Using your remote, go to Menu, Preferences, FPA Lock and change it to OFF.

If you don't have the remote, you'll need to program a universal one that has a Menu button to access the menu.

Hi,

FPA lock stands for Front Panel Access lock similar to Parental Control/Child lock - it indicates that the buttons on the front of the TV are locked so that it cannot be operated accidentally by young children.

You would need to use the remote to deactivate this security feature. Normally, you would go into the Parental Controls menu and turn off the FPA lock.

If for some reason a password was used, then you would have to enter that password since without it you can't get into the Parental Controls menu.

On some versions, you can press "Menu" on the front panel and "Vol -" on the remote simultaneously for 3 seconds to clear the password. in others, it would require that you press and hold at the same time the Vol < button on the front panel and CLEAR button of the remote control for about 5sec. You would need to enter a new password the next time you access the Parental Control Menu.

Usually, steps involve are explained better in the user's manual which is available at the RCA (Support) website. You would need to enter the exact model number of your RCA TV.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
