Mitsubishi Rear Projection TV

Bought the tv with no remote and no owners guide. When switched on it comes up with a blue screen that reads "child lock" and switches off after 15 seconds... How do I get it to work???

Easy! But you will need the original remote. On the remote is a button called QV for quick veiw. Press that button at the same time with the 9 button. This will open the lock, But it will return when you turn off the set and turn back on again. If you want it to do a normal turn on , once you open the lock you must go into the menu and remove the lock from the set completely. You may be able to find a friend or a store that might let you borrow an original remote? Sorry to be the bearer of poor news my friend. Good Luck

Re: Mitsubishi Rear Projection TV

U really need a Original remote to sort out this problem. But, just give this a try. Take a Universal remote, set it to the Mitsubishi TV frequency, and then keep the 'Menu' button pressed, aiming at the TV, for 15-20 secs. It may work. Is there a Misubishi Service centre in your area? you could ask those guys.

Apex tv pf2030 child lock

I'm afraid you will need the original remote control hand unit folks. Apex TVs use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The override code for many models is 6688. Other sets may not have one, or may have a default code of 1225 instead of an override code.
  1. To use the override code:
  2. Hit the MENU key to get to the menus.
  3. Go down to the SYSTEM menu and hit the right arrow on the remote control.
  4. Once in the SYSTEM menu, go to PARENTAL GUIDE. It will ask for your code.
  5. Enter the override code listed above. From here, you can turn on and off different rating restrictions, as well as set a new code.
No matter what the V-chip code is set to, the override code will still work. If you have a blank screen with a red key on the bottom left, simply press the (function or F) button and the mute button at the same time. This will unlock the screen and allow you to view the channel as desired

Problem with brand new TV

The reason you're getting a blue screen is that you're not getting a signal. Newer TV's have this "blanking" feature to "kill" the snow in the absence of a signal. Check the connector at the end of the cable where it screws onto the set. Stargazer

Blue screen and red padlock

It sounds to me like a child lock function, which is usually what the screen + padlock is on TVs. Usually your original remote would have a button / sequence to unlock the mode. If you still have your original remote, look for a child lock button or refer to your remote manual (and/or TV manual for the child lock feature) to unlock the mode.
