Re: blue sreen on tv with key symbol

As a technically challenged woman, I didn't realize you needed to hold down F and continue to hold it while you press mute. I figured it out after snagging a pdf of the manual from Apex's website. Just thought I would mention that for any other single women out there trying to tackle the TV problem on their own :)

Re: blue sreen on tv with key symbol

It turns out that you managed to turn the child lock... I did the same thing. In order to turn it off, you need to hit the f (function) button and then hit the mute button. That should solve your problem, it solved mine. Good luck.

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.
