NO PICTURE ON TV / JUST BLUE SCREEN / W/RED SYMBOL.Have an Advent TV -- seems locked up, can't get a picture, just a blue screen with a red symbol in upper right hand corner

Look to the owner manual if you have it as it will likely have the answer you need--if no manual Google the model number with "manual" to try to locate the owner manual---if get or have it read it carefully as it sounds like to me the parental lock is on or something similar to it.

Apex model PF3225, The TV is Locked (blue screen with red key on the bottom left corner). Don't have original remote...please help

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
