the manual for your television. Though slightly embarrassing, accidentally
turning on the child lock to a TV is a common problem. The section In the
manual about how to set the child lock feature will also explain how to unlock
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 common code is "0000."
Unplug your television for a few minutes. The internal battery of the TV is what helps remember what your code. If the TV is unplugged for an extended period of time, it clears the internal memory, which in turn will reset your child lock code.

In life, simple yet unexpected events take place, such as the loss or an accidental breakage of the television remote. When a television is locked while the remote is missing or broken, it makes matters worse. Locks are placed on televisions for privacy or age-restricted viewers. To prevent a repeat of this event, store an extra remote in the house or business where the television is located. Without the original remote, some alternatives are available to remove the lock.
Difficulty: Moderate Instructions things you'll need:
Read the manual. Televisions are accompanied by manuals when new. Some contain information on operating the television without the remote. Search for the "Lock" or "Privacy" section in the manual. If applicable, follow the given instructions.
Reset the television. You can reset and eliminate the lock on some televisions without the remote, using a few tactics. Hold the power button for five seconds. The television will automatically restart. If the lock is still on, unplug the television and remove the battery from the back panel of the television. Wait several hours before reconnecting the plug and reattaching the battery.
Purchase a universal remote. If the manual or resetting option does not work for your television, you need a universal remote. You can get one of these in electronics stores or online. The universal remote supports most televisions. The universal remote manual is included in the purchase and will instruct you on installing it into the television. After installation, enter the lock code using the universal remote.
