Unfortunately a remote is required to disable the Front Panel Lockout. This is to prevent children from circumventing some Parental controls. It is possible however to access the Lockout with a universal remote, which can be purchased from places like CVS, Walgreens, Kmart, etc. usually for under $20.00. If you already have a universal remote laying around it may be just what your looking for. Please let me know if you need any further help.
I have a Panasonic CT-27D12D with the exact same symptoms with the exception that my LOCK SET was OFF. I call the Panasonic technical servicxe and they had me to press simultaneously the "POWER" and "ACTION" buttons on the TV for about 5 seconds. A Self Check screen appear with OK's beside a list of functons checked. Next I was told to turn OFF the TV for about 5 seconds then turn it back ON and see if I could enter my Lock code. It worked. The procedure apparently reset everything.
If the TV is in "parental lock", then it will not respond to the buttons on the front of the TV. Get a cheap universal remote control, program it for RCA, turn the set on and go through the menu to unlock.
