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 ....
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.
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.
Hold the lock key in the remote for few seconds . you will get the lock tool bar . you can unlock it there
Hold the display button on the remote for 10 seconds.
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...
Universal remote controls (like the one for your comcast cable box in which it allows you to control other devices) have "the most popular" IR codes programmed inside of it. When you type in the numbers "10812,10702, etc" you are telling the remote to use that particular IR code within its "database"
The key thing to know is that universal remotes do not have every code, just the most popular. If you have tried all of the codes listed in the manual for you model TV there's not much you can do.
Try searching for a code. Some brand names, such as "Akai" may have other manufacturers parts inside of it, Searching usually is done by going through certain key-presses on the remote to try all of the codes available.
Buy another Universal remote, not all remotes are created equal as some have mode IR codes built in than others, if you have an odd brand TV, it may be more difficult to come across one that works.
Buy a learning universal remote, although usually more expensive these remotes will allow you to "learn" the IR codes from your old remote to the universal remote.
The power button on the TV doesn't work because of the child lock?
I went over the copy of your manual for your TV. It must be the child lock timer problem.
I would try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 mins and see if that reset the TV and releases the lock.
If it doesn't work, the remote needs to be replaced. A universal remotes aren't really universal when you need to use special buttons. The remote made for the TV is the best.
If your TV is the model 47PFL7403D, here's the cheapest place to buy a replacement. http://www.philips.newremotecontrol.com/catalog_item.php?catnum=313922852812
my AKAI tv is locked. All i see is a blus screen with a little red lock on the bottom left corner! the only button that works on the tv OR remote is the power button on the remote. PLEASE HELP i have tried pushing every button but nothing happens
I'm guessing what you have there is an Akai CFT2791 made by Samsung? And a CFT2729 is not a good model number.
You will need to get into the menu and then sub menus to change or turn off the child lock feature. The procedure is well described in the owner's manual and I have the manual. You can email me privately I'll send it to you...
