Hello

Try this

  1. Hold down MENU on the remote and VOLUME DOWN on the TV it's self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  2. Hold down the 0 on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN buttons on the TV its self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  3. Hold down the MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
  4. Hold down GO BACK on the remote and MENU on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
  5. Hold down EJECT on the front of the TV and the MENU button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
Depending on the model, one of the methods should unlock the V-chip. Now, if desired, you can change the settings on the V-chip by going to the MENU and going to PARENTAL CONTROLS, or on some sets, going to MENU and then going to TV SETUP, then to V-CHIP SET.
Sinotec:
If you have the original remote (RC-A07) for Sinotec tv, then press and hold down the Music button for about 10 seconds.

Most RCA and GE TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset procedure is different depending on the model. Try each method until you find one that works:

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

RCA FPA LOCK


Take the remote and turn the set on. With FPA (Front Panel Access, or Child Lock) on, the set will only turn on with the remote. Enter the menu, navigate to the page with FPA and set it to OFF.
