Question about RCA TruFlat 27F520T 27" TV
It was working til while trying to learn programming, I chose the lock for parental control. now only the standby light comes on.
If the front panel lock is on, you will need a working original remote (or a universal remote properly programmed for RCA) to turn the set on. The IR receiver is next to the buttons on the fromt but the RCA IR receivers are very reliable, and I have yet to see a bad one in a modern RCA TV. Once you turn the set on by remote, you can enter the menu and turn the FPA off.

Unplug unit. Hold power button in and plug unit in while holding power button till it beeps or flashes. This will erase eveything and you'll have to start from begining. good luck. This doesn't always work and the unit may have to be reset from the factory
