Question about Insignia IS 20" TV040919 TV
I might have a possible solution to the problem....We figured out what happened shortly after I posted my issue on here. Our problem was the universal remote. We accidentally hit the "Enter" button and the guide for the parental controls popped up. If you have recently made changes (like the universal remote) then try playing around a bit to see if that's what may be the problem....Good luck!

This worked for us
The Child Lock feature prevents unauthorized viewing of the TV. To activate, press and hold the F
key, and then press MUTE. You should see a key symbol appear on the screen. This will lock out all
remote functions (except for Standby). To unlock the TV, press and hold the F key and press MUTE.
This will unlock the TV. Please note that the only way to activate or deactivate the Child Lock feature
is via remote control - please insure that it is stored securely.

You can try these codes 2211 or 3308 if they do not work you will need to reset the unit. You will need to unplug it for 45 minutes that will reset the TV to factory settings. Then the pass codes I provided should work.

RCA TVs come with a
child lock capability called V-Chip. It's a parental control system which
allows you to block programs and films by content, age-based ratings and the
ratings which come with the movies. The parental control is a code, sent by the
broadcaster to your television. The V-Chip will not work if the broadcaster doesn't
send the control, or if the parental controls are switched off or unlocked. The
controls are set up in the TV's main menu. The default is off.
the main menu choose "Parental Controls;" it's option six.
the first option, V-Chip TV Rating Limit, and using the arrow keys and the OK
button on the remote, scroll through until the TV-MA rating appears. Press the
right arrow button to move the highlight over to the "Status" field
and toggle to "View." Press the OK button. This will set the
age-based ratings to Mature.
the Parental Controls menu, select the second option, V-Chip Movie Ratings
Limit and change the rating to TV_MA and the "Status" to
the Parental Controls menu select the third option, V-Chip Unrated Program
Block and select item one, which will be "View."
the fourth option, which is "Channel Block." Highlight the Channel
field and using the channel up and down buttons, go through and check they are
all set to 'View." Any set to "Block" will need to be toggled
back to View.
Lock the controls to activate the changes using item six on the "Parental Controls" menu
