    My problem is exactly the same, and I have also tried unplugging it. No help. I cannot turn the TV on with the power button on the TV. Only the remote works. There is a small red key-like figure in the lower left-hand corner of the screen. Sound, but no picture.

Please view this FixYa Tip which outlines the procedure for removing the parental lock when the screen is locked on the Apex TV.

    I would invite the voter to explain why they voted this solution with 2 thumbs????

    The procedure for removing parental lock on this TV is clearly outlined at the FixYa Tip I wrote myself and is direct information from Apex.

    If you cannot understand this information or continue to have an issue it would be customary to explain why the manufacturers information does not work for you rather than simply downrating it anonymously.

    Many many people have a problem with the parental lock on these TVs and this is why the information is supplied at that Tip which is itself rated 4 thumbs by multiple votes from people who were helped by it.

    Therefore if you really want help with your problem, please post a comment on why you downrated this information and what it is you actually need if anything!

Apex model #AT2704S front panel buttons stop working? Menu, channels, volume, and power? Also has a red key in lower left corner and the screen is blue. I have tried mute and function buttons on univ


Your Apex TV has been locked by anyway. Just try this method to unlock it.
Apex TVs have parental locks that allow you to block certain programs based on
their rating. When this feature is no longer needed and you want your TV to display all programming no matter its rating, you must unlock your TV. Unlocking your Apex TV is done completely from your remote control and does not require any tools. The process takes less than 5 minutes.
• Press the "Menu" button on the remote control and use the arrow buttons to scroll down to the "Parental Guide" option, then press the "Enter" button.
Type in the default parental code "6688" if you have not set your own code. If you have set your own code, type it in. If you set your own code and forgot it, override it by using "6688."
Use the arrow keys to switch the parental lock to "OFF." This allows all programs to be viewed no matter the rating. Press the "Exit" button on the remote and start watching all your channels.

Need to know how to remove the red key on tv and code


When a red key appears in the lower left corner of your Apex television screen, the set's V-chip is engaged, preventing you from watching restricted content. You can override parental controls and reset your television's pass code with your remote.
Parental Lock
  1. The Apex prompts you to enter a 4-digit code when you set up parental controls. You can block programs according to their MPAA ratings or their content designations, such as V for violence or S for ****** situations.
Disabling the Lock
  1. You can override parental controls on most Apex models by simultaneously pressing the F and mute buttons on the remote control. If you own Apex models GT2011J or GT2011S, hold the remote's display button for ten seconds. The red key will vanish and the V-chip will unblock your program.
Override Codes Apex's default parental lock control code is 6688, so if you haven't set a new code, entering 6688 will remove the red key and unblock your program. If you've set a new password and forgotten it, entering 3308 will reset the code and unblock your program.

I fixed the problem by taking the batteries out of the remote and unplugging the tv for 30 minutes. At the end of 30 minutes I replaced the batteries then pushed each button on the remote in order. I then plugged the tv back in and everything worked again.
Weird.
