How to unlock my jensen tv

Its a Jensen 24" Pure Flat TV

CR250J After our kids dropped the remote control to our Classic brand TV, the screen went black wth a red key in the lefthand corner. The TV is unresponsive to the remote except for the power button. Some of the labels on the remote buttons have worn off and so it is difficult to see which, if any of the buttons, is the display button. We also don't have a manual to help us identify the buttons as this was a second hand TV. Consequently, I tried pressing each of the unidentified buttons for at least 4 seconds, but it was unsuccessful. Another suggested solution involved pressing stop, play, and / or forward buttons which we don't have (I don't think). Please help us if you can! Thanks! Stockfam

    After I submitted the problem, I saw another solution which was to press the function button simutaneously with the mute button (go figure!) and it worked!!!! I am greatly relieved as this TV has been out of commission for months. I do appreciate the prompt response. Great website/service that you provide! Keep up the great work!! Stockfam

The tv should have buttons to change the input also. Or just hit channel up on the tv, that should do the same. That should do the trick if it is on the wrong input/channel. You could also try unplugging the tv for a minute. My tv goes back to channel 3 when unplugged.

My screen is all blue, no image and voice. a lock on the upper left corner


It sounds that your TV is locked by someway. Just unlock it. Proceed the following.
Many Jensen TVs have a parental lock that can be set to stop children from watching certain television shows or channels. In order to activate or deactivate the controls, you have to know the four-digit code or parental lock passcode. If you forget the passcode or if the lock gets set accidentally, you can still unlock the TV.

• Turn on the TV using the remote control. In most cases, you will need the original Jensen remote to unlock the TV if you aren't sure of the unlock code. You can purchase an original replacement online if necessary.

• Look at the screen. If you see a red key on the bottom of the screen, press "Function" and "Mute" on the remote at the same time. This will unlock the channel. Do this if you want to bypass the lock to watch a certain show or channel while leaving the TV locked. All other channels will remain locked and the TV will lock again when it is turned off.

• Unlock all of the channels on the TV by entering 0711 or 3308. These are the Jensen factory reset codes that will reset the TV to the original factory settings. By doing this, you will loose any information that you have stored in the TV, such as channel labels and schedules. You will have to program the TV again by going through the entire initial set up.

•Call the technical support service number in your owner's manual if neither of those codes work. A technician can help you troubleshoot the television as the problem may not be the parental lock feature. Have the model number and serial number of the TV available when you call.
• Take your television to a TV repair shop if neither of the codes work and the TV locked by itself while it was turned on. In this case, the TV may need to be rewired.
