Our old model Prima tv won't turn on after i accidentally pressed the child lock please help me


Do you have the remote control for this TV? If so, you should be able to access the menu to disable the child lock. If you don't have the original remote, you may be able to use a universal remote to access the TV's menu.

Nikai japan ntv2190stf no working remote control


To open its child lock, you might have its original remote control. Try these methods. Locate 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 it.
Try 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.
If you wish to buy its original remote control, you have to contact the authorized service center. If you wish to buy a universal remote control, you should know about, which brand remote control have setup code to your TV/device brand. You should first make sure about the number of digits in the codes to your device have. There are 3-digit, 4-digit, 5-digit and even 2-digit codes. You can get this detail by the code list attached to every universal remote control. The brand name of the remote control you select isn't a matter; but, its code list should have setup codes to your TV/device brand, otherwise you can't set it up with your device. Check this link and note which brand remote control have set-up codes to your device brand, and buy that brand remote control, according to availability.

The child lock is on my tv hitachi older model. i have no remote and the tv is turned off.. how do i get it back on to remove the lock???


The child lock on a TV can be a wonderful thing. A parent sometimes cannot be present for the duration of a kids' show, so the child lock ensures they can't watch programs that are off limits. The lock can, however, cause unwanted trouble--if it gets accidentally turned on and you don't know the code, you can find yourself unable to fully enjoy the full range of available television stations. Follow a few easy steps you'll be back to watching regular TV in no time.

I have a universal remote to my tv and somehow the child lock on my tv turned on. I looked up the manual to figure out how to turn it off, but the only way to turn the child lock off, is by pressing a...


The problem with universal remotes is that they can not fully replace the original, for example, on my remote you may turn on txt but can not turn it off, the only way is to turn off TV, and turn it on. I was lucky :) You must find the original remote, or maybe some other universal in which you may have this option, you will not know until you try. Universal remote only a part meets the requirements, I have not had the opportunity to find a universal remote that completely replaced the original.

Child lock on, TV off, No remote or manual=cannot turn TV back on


i found out on line in the owners manual that if u still have a remote control that came with the tv, u press the tv/av button and enter button at the same time to disable the child lock. New problem: u can't do it with a universal remote, even if its programmed to a magnavox tv. I called the 800 # to buy a remote control and the rep told me that it cost $50, not including the shipping and handling. so my husband put the tv in the car, brought an extension cord and took it to a local tv repairman who was kind enough to use his remote to remove the child lock for us. finally someone who is helpful for free. thanks to all the nice people out there!

TV WONT TURN ON


Well the universal remote will need to have the ability to gain access to the menu so you can go and change the settings for the "v-chip" or what ever the child lock is that you speak of. I hope you know what the password is or it may be "locked" for a very very long time. I say this about the password because usually this control is password protected. Yours may not be but,.... Good luck. What you seek is in the menu sequences somewhere. Start pushin buttons!

27" MAGNAVOX W/ CHILD LOCK ON- NO REMOTE!


On those particular Magnavox TV's you have to use the original type of remote to power it back on then un-lock the parental lock. It is a bummer that nothing else will work. Here is a link to purchase a replacement remote.. http://www.electronicadventure.us/Merchant2/merchant.mv?screen=prod
