I had the same issue on my Viewsonic N3752w
The online guide, said I had to press VOL+ and Menu at the same time, but forgot to say
a) it's from the TV buttons NOT the remote!!!
b) you need to keep pressing these 2 until it stop saying "Power unlocking" but Unlocked.

Hey. I did a chat with the people at Viewsonic and they said to hold the Meun button and Vol+ repeat Menu and Vol+ buttons together. Make sure you press it on the Tv NOT THE TV REMOTE. You will see a little bar fill up and the power lock will turn off. Ta Da!

Bought a viewsonic high def receiver without a remote. i want to program my universal remote to work it. darn thing wont even work without entering a password that requires a remote! ive tried auto entry...


You can usually find a cheap replacment remote on ebay or amazon. Heck maybe even take it to best buy home theatre and ask if they can help.
A lot of phones now days have IR in them so you can download a universal remote app and see if that will work as well.

My viewsonic model # vs11531 wont power up,what can I do?


Unplug the power, then plug it back in.

If that fails, try a different outlet, and bypass your surge protector.

If that still fails, check viewsonics website (http://www.viewsonic.com/us/) to see if it's still in warranty. If you register your item, sometimes they'll cover the repair or replacement fees.

If that fails, and it has been not long, you can contact where ever you bought it from and hope for a replacement.

Tv won't power up straight away


when lcd tv`s fail to power up, but stay on standby. It is usually because of bad capacitors on the power board. My 22" lcd monitor did the same. It would not come off of standby. It starts with them being slow to turn on. "Sound familiar"? I fixed mine by changing the bad caps. There were two of them.

HOW DO I AUTO SCAN CHANNELS ON VIEWSONIC VY2430


Do you mean the VT2430? Viewsonic doesn't list a VY2430.

For my Viewsonic TV, first make sure that your input is TV. (Press the Input button on the remote (upper left) or the TV (furthest right). Use the arrow keys or multiple presses of Input to change the current input.) Next press Menu. Use the up/down arrows to navigate to the TV menu (the icon looks like a TV). Press Enter. Set the type of incoming TV signal (Cable or Air or let the tv figure it out with Auto). Then go down to the line labeled AutoScan and press Enter. You may be prompted to begin the scan or to select the type of channels to scan. Press Enter again after making the selection.

Viewsonic has the manual for the VT2430 available on their site: http://www.viewsonic.com/products/vt2430.htm#tabbox_downloads . The direct link is http://www.viewsonic.com/assets/041/11502.pdf .

I hope this helps.

I have an AKAI TV CT-2877A (M) and the "child


Hi,

As long as you remember the "CODE" The child lock on a TV is a wonderful thing.

The lock sometimes causes unwanted trouble--if it gets accidentally turned on and you don't know the code, you can find yourself unable to fully enjoy the full range of available television stations. Please apply the following possible 5 different solutions taht verified by different users and than hopefully you'll be back to watching regular TV ....


  1. Bring Up TV Menu ; Power on the television with the activated child lock on. Push the "Menu" button on the remote control. A series of features appears on the screen, ranging from the overall TV functions to the video display and the audio setup features ,Choose "Options" and a new menu appears on the screen. From the new menu select "Child Lock." The exact setup selection is going to vary slightly, although the child protection is always referred to as either "Child Lock" or "V-Chip." The V-chip is the actual chip built into the television that blocks out certain television programming.
  2. Try a "factory reset" action... This should be somewhere in the TV menu system. However Please note that will clear everything, so you may need to re-program every things..the channels etc.
  3. Hold the lock key in the remote for few seconds . you will get the lock tool bar . you can unlock it there
  4. Hold the display button on the remote for 10 seconds.
  5. As a The last solution which is common for all TV sets..
    • Try to find the User manual for your television. The section In the manual about how to set the child lock feature will also explain how to unlock it.
    • Try a few "universal methods" for unlocking the child lock. Some televisions have a universal code built in for disabling the child lock --no matter what your code is. A commonly used code is "0000."
    • Unplug your television for at least 1 hour . The internal memory battery of the TV is what helps remember what your code. When TV is unplugged for an extended period of time, it clears the internal memory, which in turn will reset your child lock code back to "0000 " again...
if the problem still continues you have to email to : http://www.akaiusa.com/

Hope this helps!

Sharp LCD can't turn on


Bummer, one month out of warranty. This is why I always recomend keeping expensive, high tech stuff under warranty.
First thing to do is buy and download the service manual from servicemanual.net and find out what the fail code of 1 blink means.
