    Can not turn on tv because FPA Lock is on. Can only be turned by remote.I am using a universal remote instead of the original remote. Will a RCA remote fix the problem by going to the menu?

    My FPA Lock is on my TV and I have tried all the solutions given at this site and nothing works - WHAT KIND OF **** IS RCA MAKING - It shouldn't be this difficult to get some help and solve the problem.

    FPA is on and I'm without remote,manual,land line,vehicle but most importantly I am hard of hearing and need my closed-captioning. The T V is basicly forced to stay on and will not allow me to have closed -captioning. That is my problem and I want a solution so bad. Tried pushing all the buttons that got me into this mess to begin with. All I can do. Thanks

I have a different model RCA but it locked itself on August 16! The solution is in the manual, on page 29 for your model, regarding the Child Lock. I hope this helps.

FPA lock is on


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.

I hope this helps.

I have and rca tru flat tv and my FPA lock is on... i have a brighthouse remote that im using on it but i need to know how to turn it off


Hello
Without its original remote control, opening the FPA lock of RCA will be difficult. Just try to get one new remote for this set or jut borrow it from any of your friends or relatives who own the same model set, just to open its FPA lock. After opening lock, you can use your brighthouse remote. You can open the lock with one amoung the following procedure.

Most RCA 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.

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.

Any one amoung the above process will unlock your GE TV. After unlock, you have to do the Vchip-Set.

I have a TruFlat RCA model # 27F520T have lost original remote and FPA lock is on how do I unlock without original remote? Dish universal remote not working to unlock tv, it will pull up menu but cannot...


Try this -
  1. Press menu for main menu.
  2. Press CH + or CH - to highlight preferences.
  3. Press "OK" to enter preferences submenu.
  4. Press CH + or CH - to high light "FPA"
  5. Press VOL + or VOL - to turn the FPA on or off.
  6. Press MENU repeatedly to exit.
  7. Back to normal
  • FPA stands for Front Panel Lock. It makes it so kids don't push all the buttons on the front of your TV. The power button on the TV will still work and the remote will still function as normal.

Regards, Tony

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!
