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.

Take the remote and turn the set on. With FPA (Front Panel Access, or Child Lock) on, the set will only turn on with the remote. Enter the menu, navigate to the page with FPA and set it to OFF.

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.

Turn off fpa lock without remote


Install an IR Remote App in android phone. The app link below worked for me to remove the fpa lock on. Configure the App for your RCA TV. Set TV as Device type, RCA as the brand. and choose the model (e.g., TV 20 F420T) also, select the Alternate IR Driver.

All the options of the command may appear in a list form. Close that and an actual remote with buttons should appear.

Then Power your tv will turn ON. Press the Menu. Pressing the Channel Down/Up Button to navigate to Preferences. Press OK button on the screen.. Then Navigate to FPA Lock. Press OK again. THis will turn the FPA Lock to Off.

Then you could use your on-TV buttons ZappIR Universal IR Remote Android Apps on Google Play

Is RCA 24V511T digital or analog? Also can I use a universal remote or do I need the replacement for the original remote that came with it? I


Hello
This CRT based tV is an anlogue one. You can use a universal remote control, except to unlock the FPA lock to this TV. By anyway, this TV has been locked with FPA lock, you must have its original remote control to unlock the lock. You can use most of the RCA universal remote controls with this TV.
RCA RCR 311W will be better. The setup codes are:
1000, 1002, 1004, 1005, 1014, 1025, 1078, 1081, 1095, 1096, 1097, 1098, 1099, 1100, 1101, 1111, 1128, 1130, 1132, 1134, 1144, 1146, 1149, 1171, 1205
OK.

How do i get the fpa lock off without the original remote?


Hello
It is very difficult to unlock the FPA lock of RCA, without it original remote control. Just try to get it from anyone amoung your friends or relatives; just to open the FPA lock. You can use it after that, with the help of any other univrsal remote control. To open the FPA lock, do one amoung the following till you get the correct process for your TV.

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.
  4. 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.

FPA LOCK ON


FPA means the front panel is locked by the Parental Access Control Menu.

Unfortunately, the FPA can only be removed using the remote. There are no magic front panel button combinations.

The cheapest way out is to buy a Universal Remote Control at Walmart (about $10) and program it to your RCA TV. Then you can go into the Parental Control Menu and remove the lock.
