If you have a universal remote you have to hold the button that says toggle or a button equilivent to that for five seconds than the tamper proof light will turn off than you can you tv on I had to figure this out on my own.
If you have a universal remote that doesnt specify a "toggle" button, try holding the "enter button until it turns off. I figured this out after hours of trying to solve the very same problem and reading every solution Fixya.com could give me.

As you know, the Tamper Proof function is activated and de-activated holding the Toggle/Source/Input button for about five seconds.
If your universal remote does not have this button (under any name), then try all buttons.
Try also disconnecting power cord for five minutes, this will reset most TV functions.
If still no luck, then you will need a different remote to get rid of the function.
Try all buttons on your remote. If the Tamper Proof had been activated using this remote with this codes, then it can be turned off using the same remote.
Yes, there are a few options for new remotes for this unit. You can find several of them at the "order parts" option found at the bottom of www.bestbuy.com. In fact there is an option to purchase the unit that matched up directly with your television
which is RRMCG1330PESA!
I looked this set up, and Unfortanatly there is no universal remote that will unlock the set and also theres no way to do it without the original remote. Sorry to be the one with bad news. Also the right remote is available at 1-800-remotes or http://www.remotes.com for about 52 bucks + shipping. Good Luck
