Key icon on polariod television

My son accidentally stepped on the remote and the screen went blank. The sound is still on, and it will power on and off (by remote control only), and I can't change any channels. Also, there is an orange key icon on the lower left hand corner of the blank screen.

Re: key icon on polariod television

When your son stepped on the remote apparently the set was put into a lock out mode.Probably several (at least 2) buttons were pushed at the same time. If you still have your owner's manual you might find the answer as to how to unlock you set. If not then you need to call tech support and ask how to unlock it. Stargazer

I have Nippon Japan t.v ang brought here in da philippines. my son is changing channel w/ the remote.. and it will power on & off by remote control.. but only 1 channel is on. i saw a red key appears...

Try to download the user manual to your tV fro net. It sounds that the TV is locked for other channels by improper key pressings. User manual will have details about how to unlock it. Search for it in net, with its exact model number at its back cover.

My son stepped on a remote control for a DVR. The Sony Trinitron Wega KD 32FS130 went blank. Now it won't come on, goes into standby mode, with the red light blinking four times. Any suggestions?

It is possible that the button your son stepped on is stuck. If so, remove the batteries form the DVR remote control and see if the TV works. Unplug the TV from the wall for a few minutes to clear its memory to be sure. Some times remote controllers can have cross-talk, meaning it can affect other equipment,

I'm afraid you will need the original remote control hand unit folks. Apex TVs use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The override code for many models is 6688. Other sets may not have one, or may have a default code of 1225 instead of an override code.
  1. To use the override code:
  2. Hit the MENU key to get to the menus.
  3. Go down to the SYSTEM menu and hit the right arrow on the remote control.
  4. Once in the SYSTEM menu, go to PARENTAL GUIDE. It will ask for your code.
  5. Enter the override code listed above. From here, you can turn on and off different rating restrictions, as well as set a new code.
No matter what the V-chip code is set to, the override code will still work. 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
