Child Lock on Insignia TV

Okay so this is a bit complicated. My roommate somehow managed to lock my NS-20LCD television with the universal remote. I tried every combination of codes I could think of and nothing.

I called Insignia and they said to get a new remote. Got a new remote from Best Buy and put brand new batteries in it and it doesn't work! It won't even turn on my tv let alone escape from child lock.

Anyone know of how to fix this? Please please please help me. Thanks.

    Unfortunately, no. My dog ate it many moons ago-which is why I had to get the universal remote.

I CAN HELP! After my having my Insignia NS-20LCD picture locked for over a year because no one could give me a way to unlock it, a co-worker found the secret!!

When facing the back of the TV, there is another on/off switch on the back on the right side just under the curve (very difficult to see). I didn't even know it was there.

Once you locate, turn the set on using that switch while you hold in the "menu" button on the right side (when facing the front) of the TV. This will reset the television and unlock the screen!

    Yes, that sounds funny, but it happened to me once, too!
    You need to give the remote details, manufacturer / brand & model.

Ns-20lcd in locked mode will not unkock with a remote which I ordered. I there a master reset somewhere?


Insignia will tell you that you MUST have original remote to unlock. You press and hold Display button for 5 or 10 seconds. My problem is Best Buy tried to repair mine 3 times and one of those times replaced a board inside and original remote will note work and they will make no attempt to help me figure out what is inside. Mine has been locked for over a year. Locked by accident with universal remove.

1. Locate second power switch on back hidden below curve, left side if facing front of TV.
2. Turn TV on using this power switch while holding in MENU button on right side of TV.
3. This is reset the Lock feature!!

Accidentally locked out of my TV


Unfortunately with this model of Insignia you MUST have the remote that comes with that model number in order to unlock it. Other Insignia remotes won't work. So I have ordered another remote from an online company. Hopefully that will work. I'll probably have to call Insignia to have them walk me through it once the remote arrives.

Turn off child lock


To unlock the Panel Lock, Parent Lock, or Child Lock, follow these steps:
  1. Turn on your TV.
  2. On the remote, press the Menu button. The Set-Up Menu appears.
  3. Scroll to the Key Lock function and set function to Off.
  4. Press the Exit button to exit.
Note: If you don't have a remote, you may be able to do the same thing by pressing the Menu button on the front or side panel of your TV and using the volume or channel up and down buttons on the TV to scroll to the Key Lock function and set it to Off.
