How to unlock the parental control on Advent Q1435A

Something fell on the remote (Advent RC-A26-0H) and accidently activated the parental control. the screen is blue and there is pink symbol that looks like a lock in the top left hand corner. the buttons on the tv do not work. i can turn it on and off using the remote. the display key is the only key on the remote besides power that works. the TV was manufactured in 2005.

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.

The Red Lock indicates that it has been Child Locked, this could be done by accidently pressing child lock. On your remote control there is a MUSIC button, to turn off the red child lock PUSH & HOLD the button. The red lock does not go off with a qucik push. You need to Push & Hold The music button for about 10 secounds.

Padlock, blue screen


Somehow in handling the remote control I pushed a button or combination of buttons and now have a blue screen with a lock symbol in red in the top left hand corner. I've tried turning the tv off, and unplugging it, as well as a combination of buttons on the remote, but it still is there.
What do I need to do to remove the lock?
