Hi!

Is the tv saying FPA lock on the screen or are the buttons on the front just not working?

no, i do not have the original remote & only have the cable remote(comcast).
Expert:  Tim Nolan replied 5 years ago.
Ok I know of no way to get this lock off without the original RCA remote control. You can try this procedure with the cable one but I am not sure it will work.

Try this:

Press and hold the channel up button on the tv
While holding press the volume up button on the remote

OR

Press and hold the channel up button on the tv
while holding press the volume up button on the tv

OR

Press and hold the channel up button on the tv
while holding press the volume down button on the remote

Last
press and hold the channel up button on the tv
while holding press the volume down button on the tv

Any of these do anything?
