The Red Lock indicates that it has been Child Locked, this could be done by
accidently pressing child lock. On your remote control there is a MUSIC button,
to turn off the red child lock PUSH & HOLD the button. The red lock does not
go off with a qucik push. You need to Push & Hold The music button for about
If you find that your Apex TV is showing a blank screen with a red key on the bottom left then the Screen Lock otherwise known as Child Lock or Parental Control has been accidentally activated and your TV will not respond to commands from the remote control.
To resolve this and reactivate the TV simply press the (function or F) button and hold down the mute button on the remote at the same time for around 10 seconds. 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 to reset any preset rating levels.
This extract is taken from an Apex Manual specific to the child lock function;
The Childlock function is designed to prevent chiIdren from watching TV. To activate: HoId down the F button and then press the MUTE button until the symboI “ ” appears on the screen. The TV will enter the Childlock mode. Except for the “ ” symbol the screen becomes blue or black . To unlock the TV hoId down the F button and then press the MUTE button again.
Please Note: The Childlock can be set or cancelIed only by the remote controI. After setting Childlock, secure the remote control in a safe place.

If your set has a blue screen with a small red lock on it, yes you are in the child lock mode, if there is no red lock on the blue screen then no you have another problem. The trouble is, if you are in the child lock mode, you cannot get out of it with out the proper remote hand unit. you will
need to get an original replacement remote from Here:http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=gmi&smodel=GT2015DV&brand_pn=APEX_GT2015DV&mode=large&uid=11834488446870
There is no other way I'm afraid. Good luck
It sounds to me like a child lock function, which is usually what the screen + padlock is on TVs. Usually your original remote would have a button / sequence to unlock the mode. If you still have your original remote, look for a child lock button or refer to your remote manual (and/or TV manual for the child lock feature) to unlock the mode.
