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

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.

FPA lock settings, No remote, can not power on TV

If you forget your password you can reset it. Make sure the TV is off. Simultaneously press and hold VOL< on the TV?s front panel and CLEAR on the remote for approximately 5 seconds. Enter a new password next time you access the PARENTAL CONTROL menu. Front Panel Lock 1. From the PARENTAL CONTROL menu, press the up or down arrow to highlight Lock Fr. Panel. 2. Press the right or left arrow to turn on (box has check mark) or off (box doesn?t have check mark) front panel lock. Of course if you don't have a remote that can bring up the menu I don't know how this can be done.

FDA Lock

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.

Standby light is on, but power switch does nothing

The FPA (Front Panel Access) lock is on. This allows you to prevent kids from using the set when you are not there and disables the buttons on the front of the TV. The set should turn on with the remote only, and then you can go back into the menu and turn off the FPA, also called child lock.
