SOURCE: FPA Lock
After doing a little research, it looke like the front panel lock , can only be removed from the parental control menu using your remote. If your universal remote does not get you into the menu, see if you can borrow a friends rca remote long enough to get you into your menu & remove the fpa.

If the front panel lock is on, you will need a working original remote (or a universal remote properly programmed for RCA) to turn the set on. The IR receiver is next to the buttons on the fromt but the RCA IR receivers are very reliable, and I have yet to see a bad one in a modern RCA TV. Once you turn the set on by remote, you can enter the menu and turn the FPA off.

SOURCE: FPA Lock can't turn Tv on
I posted the above - I went to WalMart, bought an $8 remote and a .98 pack of AA batteries. It turned the TV on immediately. Problem solved for less than $10.
