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

If you forget your password, press and hold TV on the remote and the
MENU button on the television

simultaneously for 3 seconds. Parental
controls will then unlock and you can re-enter a password via Lock
Parental Controls.

Make sure you aim the remote at the TVs sensor while you press the TV button, and hold the menu button in on the front of the television.

I just did this on my tv same exact model, I used a universal remote, it was an rca remote but im not sure it makes a difference. I programmed the remote to this tv with the tv off and it worked. the programming directions say to turn the tv on but i couldnt. If and when u get the tv on if u are using a universal remote get the menu up. most likely the light will be flashing. take the battery out and put it right back in. the light should no longer be flashing, and the menu should still be up. u can now navigate to the preferences and turn off the fpa lock... good luck

Try this...turn off the television, then press the "Volume Down" button on the TV and the "Clear" button on the remote at the same time. Press them both for five seconds, then release and turn on the TV. When it's time to enter your parental password, the system should ask you to reset it. If you need to reset other settings such as picture quality or brightness, look for an "All Reset" option under the "Setup" or "Others" menus. Selecting this option returns all the settings to their factory defaults.

Buy a new remote.
Look around the tv and find the menu button.
Generally there is a separate power button.

The means the deflection is not working, there is a coil of wire around the neck of the tube, it is run by a transistor. This transistor has probably gone bad

sounds like a power fault, prob just weak capacitors if you can change them it would not cost a lot to replace them, when you change channel it draws more power and if its at its limit it will turn off as the capacitors cannot take it. few £'s or $s to get the replacement capacitors, you will probably see the blown capacitors on the power board as the will not have flat tops they will be rounded, change them same for same i.e 16v 330 for same 105c type would be best. it will say this on the capacitor.

I don't know what brand remote control you have. In most cases, AV selection to RCA TVs will not be possible to many of them. It will be best to buy an original remote control said for your TV brand. If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability? Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the site http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/ Check this site too. http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops. Visit some online sites too, which deals with electronic spare parts.

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.
