No, Emerson tv's require the original remote to solve the problem, you can try contacting a tv repair shop to see if by chance they have one for your model and may part with it for a small fee, or at least remove the FPA lock.

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.
