Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

My television, RCA TruFlat Model 20F420T will not turn on because the FPA button was pressed. The red light is on, and will not go off, which means it is OFF. I do not have the original remote, but have the Verizon FIOS remote, which I use with it. I have tried pressing the volume and channel + buttons simultaneously, but no luck. I have tried other combos as well. Any suggestions? Thank you very much.

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

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.

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.

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.
