My tv says locked on the screen. i dont know what to do with the rmote. it will turn on and the channels will go up and down but says locked on the screen

As you have its remote things are easy. If you have forgotten the passoword do the following.

make sure the TV is off. Simoultaneously press and HOLD VOL. Enter a next password next time you access parential control menu.

If this does not help do the following

[1] Hold dow n [0] on the remote control and volume [2] Hod down Menu button on the front panel of the TV and 'TV' button on the remote control at the same time for at least 5 seconds.
[3] Hold down "Go Back" on the remote control hanset and "Menu" on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 5 seconds.
[4] Hold down "Eject" on the front of the TV and the "Menu" button on the remote control hanset at the same time at least 5 seconds.
Depending on the model one amoung these steps will unlock RCA tv. OK.

V chip locked up and dont have the code

Bypassing the V-Chip Lock
After you set the lock, you need your passcode to view
a V-Chip locked program, view the locked TV, cancel
the lock, or enter the V-Chip Lock menus.
If you forget your passcode, you can view the locked
TV without entering your passcode. This is done by
pressing the number 9 and QV buttons on the TV
remote control at the same time, when your passcode
is requested. This process temporarily unlocks the TV.
When entering the V-Chip Lock menu, this process
deletes your old passcode and prompts you to enter a
new passcode. Press HOME to exit the menu.
Bypassing Front Button Lock
If you have misplaced the remote control, you can
bypass the front button lock by pressing and holding
the MENU button on the front panel for more than 8
Cut along the dotted line and file
bypass instructions in a safe place for
future reference.
changing or deleting your
you must use the remote
;ontrol included with this TV. You
use a Mitsubishi remote
_ontrol from another component

ok any one with the problem having a lock osd on the hisense plasma screen this is what you need to do to unlock the osd
you will need the tv remote control to hand ....
press the menu button on the side of the tv .. you will have a display message saying osd locked ......
now press the menu button again so the same message comes up again then press the number 9 on you original remote for the tv ...
job done osd now unlocked....... hope this helps
you can only unlock the osd with the tv remote there is no other way, so if you dont have one you will need to get one to do this.

Front panel locked and remote don't work

Are you sure there is not a problem with the TV set? The set will need to be on to unlock the front panel. Bypassing the V-Chip Lock on most Mitsubishi sets use a four-digit passcode that is required to view a V-Chip locked program, view the locked TV, cancel the lock, or enter the V-Chip lock menus. If you don't have the passcode, it is easy to bypass. This is neccessary if you forgot the code, purchased the set used, or if you simply don't feel like searching through your files to find it. To bypass the V-chip: You can view the locked shows by pressing the number 9 and QV buttons on the remote at the same time, whenever your passcode is requested. This process temporarily unlocks the TV. To reset the code: When you use the button combination 9 and QV while entering the V-Chip Lock menu, this process deletes your old passcode and prompts you to enter a new passcode. Good Luck
