Hi, I just had the same issue a few days ago. When you are using the universal remote, make sure the "tv" button is not blinking. Just press it and then you will be able to use the volume up and down and the channel up and down. I was able to use a universal remote, and unlock the fpa. Good luck!

http://www.hdtvoice.com/voice/showthread.php?t=24248

go to http://www.thomsonnetwork.com

Click on "publications ordering" (in the list on the lefthand side of the homepage)
Click the box for service information. Enter the model number (or click the chassis button and enter the chassis number).

In the list of documents you can purchase for $40 ESIATC32X -- the service manual on CD for your set.

This disk will have the info you need.

If you do decide to purchase it (and I highly reccommend you do so), send me the alignment chapter and I would be happy to post it for others who have the same set on my homepage.

Using the remote control hand unit that came with the TV turn on TV. Then go to the set up menu. Locate the entry for Front Panel Lock (FPL) and select no. Once you have done that exit the set up menu then on the same remote push the "input" button while watching the screen. Push button once wait a few seconds for a picture to appear, if not then push the button again, continue until you have selected the input that provides a picture. Right now you are in the Front inputs you should look for Video 1 or 2.

I had the same preoblem with my rca model 27f520t truflat tv. I used a universal remote. When I first tried with the universal it would not work for me. The remote would turn the tv on and pull up the menu but the channel up or down and volume up or down would not, the light was flashing. I pulled up the menu and pulled a battery out and put it right back in and the menu stayed up and the light stopped flashing. I was able to go to preferences and turn off the fpa lock. good luck this was difficult to figure out and had me very irritated.....

I would like to access the service menu on my RCA Truflat 27F554T tv but I have no idea how. I have looked everywhere and all the methods I have tried for RCA tvs did nothing.


If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.
NB: Please read and understand well, the instructions to enter the service mode, before you begin. Be very careful. Note how to "EXIT" the service mode; after entering and adjusting data. This is very important.

Type in the brand name of your device, in the search box [at the top right] of the display window and the Search will start at once as you type in, and will show you all the related posts. It will make surf easy.

20FP420T FP lock on and can't select input no remote?


Do you mean the 20F420T? RCA doesn't have a 20FP420T as far as I can tell.

Unfortunately, you can't turn off the Front Panel (child lock) without a remote. All of the front panel Power button to turn off the set but not to turn it on. You need a remote that matches the Menu function. Press Menu, then use the Ch+/Ch- buttons to select Preferences. Press OK then press Ch+/Ch- to highlight FPA lock. Use the Vol+/Vol- buttons to toggle the lock function on or off. (Off lets the front panel work normally) Then press Menu repeatedly to exit the menus. A substitute remote can be obtained here: http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Search&o=c&uid=0&m=20F420T&uuid=12994577706920 . This is guaranteed to work with the 20F420T . Most universal remotes should also work as long as they were programmed after 2006.

The manual for the 20F420T is available here: http://support.ttetech.com/RCATV/NewTV/Templates/SupportDownloads.aspx?NRMODE=Published&NRORIGINALURL=%2fen-us%2fproductdownloads.html&NRNODEGUID={35D79B02-4AAE-4834-BFD0-1124EA501FA2}&NRCACHEHINT=NoModifyGuest . Fill in the drop down menus for 20" and the model.

I hope this helps.

How to remove child locks


Hi there,


If you have lost or forgotten the code, the default factory password is 0000. This should still work even if you have set another password and forgotten. You should also deactivate the lock fully from the menu if you no longer wish to use it or activated it accidentally.


Disabling the child lock (and/or other locks):


(This can be done from the remote or the buttons on the front of the TV)


1. Press MENU to open the main menu.

2. Press CH+ or CH- to highlight PREFERENCES.

3. Press OK to enter the PREFERENCES menu.

4. Press CH+ or CH- to highlight FPA Lock (Front Panel lock) .

5. Press VOL+ or VOL- to switch the lock on or off

6. Press MENU repeatedly to exit the menu


The menu will disappear if no buttons are pressed on the remote for several seconds.


Please let me know if you need further assistance.


Regards,

BElectric.

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.
