Need to know how to remove the red key on tv and code

When a red key appears in the lower left corner of your Apex television screen, the set's V-chip is engaged, preventing you from watching restricted content. You can override parental controls and reset your television's pass code with your remote.
Parental Lock
  1. The Apex prompts you to enter a 4-digit code when you set up parental controls. You can block programs according to their MPAA ratings or their content designations, such as V for violence or S for ****** situations.
Disabling the Lock
  1. You can override parental controls on most Apex models by simultaneously pressing the F and mute buttons on the remote control. If you own Apex models GT2011J or GT2011S, hold the remote's display button for ten seconds. The red key will vanish and the V-chip will unblock your program.
Override Codes Apex's default parental lock control code is 6688, so if you haven't set a new code, entering 6688 will remove the red key and unblock your program. If you've set a new password and forgotten it, entering 3308 will reset the code and unblock your program.

My tv is locked

It sounds like the manufacturers are asking you to get it looked at by an engineer! Try their website, maybe they will have a firmware download or a key combination that can be pressed to force the system to re-boot when powering up, something like the sky+box has. Try and press the channel up & down buttons while pressing the on button, or maybe it'll be another combination, it's worth experimenting before you get an engineer out. Hope this helps

Loewe TV with pin cushion distortion

Yes if you could give me a model #, it is probably a diode shorted in pincushion area, or a capacitor.

Picture not locking in

Are you on cable or the dish? Did you buy the set in Jamaica? The reason that I am asking these questions is that all sets do not work the same every where in the world.
