Question about RCA 20F420T 20" TV
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.

I have tried that. I have the same problem I bought an universal remote and it is not working. It will not let me access anything at all on my GT2011S model. I know the TV is old, but dang! It is a good TV and my husband is going to KILL me!
