RCA TruFlat 27F520T - FPA on and NO REMOTE

I accidentally put on the FPA lock and all of your solutions for unlocking involve use of the remote......I have the RCA TruFlat 27F520T

What if I lost the remote? How do I unlock it without the remote?

Also, how do I switch the input for the DVD to work without the remote?

Thanks!!!

If you've lost the original remote there is nearly no possible way to unlock the unit. RCA built their PL so that the combination could be set and the parents would merely have to take the remote with them and it couldn't be changed...
As to the DVD I don't believe there is an input button on the face of the unit and I'm not real sure if you could find a universal that would allow that... Not even Miracle remote makes an alternative and their remoted are as good as the originals...
Sorry

I have a TruFlat RCA model # 27F520T have lost original remote and FPA lock is on how do I unlock without original remote? Dish universal remote not working to unlock tv, it will pull up menu but cannot...


Try this -
  1. Press menu for main menu.
  2. Press CH + or CH - to highlight preferences.
  3. Press "OK" to enter preferences submenu.
  4. Press CH + or CH - to high light "FPA"
  5. Press VOL + or VOL - to turn the FPA on or off.
  6. Press MENU repeatedly to exit.
  7. Back to normal
  • FPA stands for Front Panel Lock. It makes it so kids don't push all the buttons on the front of your TV. The power button on the TV will still work and the remote will still function as normal.

I accidently locked the fpa how do i unlock it without a remote


Unfortunately, there is really no other way to unlock fpa other than using a remote control.

You can buy any universal remote control and this can be use to unlock fpa.

Good luck.

You can't. You can get a basic RCA/GE remote at Walmart or HomeDepot for $5.

FPA LOCK


Using your remote, go to Menu, Preferences, FPA Lock and change it to OFF.

If you don't have the remote, you'll need to program a universal one that has a Menu button to access the menu.
