The front panel lock can only be unlocked with the remote. Press Menu, then Ch+ or Ch - to select Preferences. Press Ok then use the Ch+ or Ch- buttons to highlight FPA (front panel) lock. Then use the Vol+ and Vol - buttons to select On or Off. Then press Menu repeatedly to exit the menu system. With the FPA lock disabled, you can turn it on from the front panel of the TV by pressing the Menu button. However, with the lock enabled, you can only power off the TV from the front panel.

Since the Input button is also only on the remote, if you look for a universal remote, choose one with both Menu and Input or Source functions. Then try all the RCA codes until you find one that makes all of the remote functions work. The original remote is: RCR130TA1 . A substitute remote that should match all of the functions is available here: http://remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Search&o=c&uid=0&m=20F420T&uuid=13004957447460 .

The manual for the RCA 20F420T is available here: http://support.ttetech.com/RCATV/NewTV/Templates/SupportDownloads.aspx?NRMODE=Published&NRORIGINALURL=%2fen-us%2fproductdownloads.html&NRNODEGUID={35D79B02-4AAE-4834-BFD0-1124EA501FA2}&NRCACHEHINT=NoModifyGuest . If the direct link doesn't work, start here: http://support.ttetech.com/en-us/productdownloads.html . Select a 20" TV and then your model number in the drop down menus and press Go.

I hope this helps.

FPA lock is on

The FPA lock is a control panel lock to keep children, for example, from changing the channel or input by pressing buttons on the TV. You enable or disable the lock from the original remote control or one that matches all of the original's features. Only the power button will work with the FPA lock enabled. (The power button may only allow for turning off the TV.)

For directions on how to disable the FPA, you will need to add a comment with the make and model of the TV. Every manufacturer uses a different pattern to toggle the lock on and off.

I hope this helps.

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.
