Child Locked the TV

My son was playing with the remote and now I can only turn on the TV using the remote. THe screen comes on black, but the display info shows for about 5 seconds, then disappears and is replaced by a small red key symbol in teh lower left corner of the screen. I have no idea what PIN he could have used. Is there a reset button or something? Help!!!

* 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. * If your TV asks for a 4-digit code or password please enter 3308 or 6688 to unlock the screen or reset any preset rating levels. * If you have a GT2011J or GT2011S Television, hold the (Display) button for 10 seconds, it will unlock the screen. If password or code is requested, try 3308 or 6688. One of the above methods should get you past the lock. If so, I would take the opportunity to disable the lock in the TV's menu so this doesn't happen again. If this still doesn't work, you can call Apex Customer Support at (800)880-1227.

BDV E2100 LOCKED IN TV MODE


Once again a simple GOOGLE search, and the first thing on the list is the manual for this unit!

I suspect this is what you need.

Deactivating the Buttons on the Unit
(Child Lock)
You can deactivate the buttons on the unit
(except for on/off) for preventing misoperation, such as child mischief.
Hold down
(stop/square black button)
on the unit for more than 5 seconds."LOCKED" appears in the front panel display.
The child lock function is activated and the buttons on the unit are locked. (You can operate the system by using the remote control.)
To cancel, hold down
(stop/square black button)
for more than 5 seconds until "UNLOCK" appears in the front panel display.

If that's not the problem, here's the link for the manual.

Child locked on my tv


Possibly, you will need an original remote to disable or turn off this feature. And some child lock can be accessible through neither MENU of your tv or remote. Check CHILD LOCK option to remove it. If it is a screen lock type of CHILD LOCK feature of tv (a Blue Background display a LOCK icon) and your original remote is lost, try a universal remote for you to possibly unlock it. Thanks for using Fixya.

Locked tv


You need to buy a remote for that TV. They're available online for around $39. This site has them in stock, but you can shop around to be sure its a good price. When you receive it, turn on your TV and press menu on the remote and turn off child lock. Click the Remote here:

Polaroid TTM-2003 Locked up.


The same thing happened to me. The manual on polaroid.com says to press and hold the F button (located at the top of the remote) and press the mute button at the same time. This will unlock as well as lock the TV. It's a child safety feature.
