    I dont have the original remote to enter this code with????

  • carpentron Aug 11, 2008

    I have a RCA TV model # 27F520T and i was "told" by a represenative that i will have to get the original remote to the TV (which is # 265714 i believe although the rep said it was 270372) to turn the TV back on. This has been a very irritating experience and LONG. I called up the RCA parts department and they dont have ANY of them in stock (back order). I will persue to get the original TV to reprogram and turn off the lock (god help me) but has anyone gone through this and it worked? OR does anybody have any info that might help? thanks a bunch i moved into my new place and the TV was fine at the old, as soon as i turned it on it went blue screen and white lettering "FPA LOCK" and shut down. You CANT turn it on (nor off) so i NEED HELP more then the reps!!! Thanks.

How do you turn off the FPA lock on the RCA TRUFLAT TV? I Can't access menu.


Hello
First of all, you must ahve its original remote control to unlock FPA lock. If you have it, go through the folloing steps.
* Hold down Menu button on the remote control, and the Volume Down button on the at the same time for at least 4 seconds. "The set won't say so, but the lock will be released".
** Hold down Zero button on the remote control, and the Volume Down button on the TV. The set won't say so, but the lock will be released.
*** Hold down Menu button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be released.

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

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.

Hey this same thing happened to me not too long ago and you just have to buy a Universal remote and program it (it should come with the codes to program it to your TV) I think the code is 704 or 702 for RCA... Anywho after that then you can turn your tv back on wit the remote and push menu and Preferences and then FPA off. Its just a parental control block so your kids cant touch the tv buttons and mess with your settings.
