Omni TVs have a child lock that allows parents to prevent children
from watching specific channels or television shows with certain ratings. To
activate or deactivate the controls, you need the four digit pass code. If you
forget the pass code or if the lock gets set accidentally, you can still unlock
the TV. • Use the original
Omni remote control to turn on the TV. You need the original remote to bypass
the child lock. A universal remote won't work. Check the screen. If you see a blank screen with a red key on it,
press the "Function" and "Mute" buttons at the same time.
This unlocks only the channel that is on the TV. All the other channels will
remain locked and the TV will lock again when it is turned off.
• Unlock all of the channels on the TV by
entering "6688," which is the factory reset code. This code resets
the TV to original factory settings. Once this is done, you will have to go
through the initial setup.
• Call Omni technical support at (416)
260-0047. A technician can help you troubleshoot the television as the problem
may not be the child lock. You'll need to know the model number and serial
number of the TV. •Take your television to a TV repair shop if you
are still unable to unlock the TV. The problem may be with the wiring, so the
repairman may have to rewire the TV
Press the "Menu" button on the remote control and use the arrow buttons to scroll down to the "Parental Guide" option, then press the "Enter" button. Type in the default parental code "6688" if you have not set your own code. If you have set your own code, type it in. If you set your own code and forgot it, override it by using "6688." Use the arrow keys to switch the parental lock to "OFF." This allows all programs to be viewed no matter the rating. Press the "Exit" button on the remote and start watching all your channels
unfortunately not. I had the same problem, in the end i had to go and but a universal remote (which are very cheap, depending on where you look!). After you have your remote, the code you need to sync. the remote to the TV is 210
we have parental lock on our tv.....the screen is blue with a lock in the lower left corner,we can't get it of with our 3in 1 remote....a tv. repair man said we needed the original remote....can you help with this problem
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.
To use the override code:
Hit the MENU key to get to the menus.
Go down to the SYSTEM menu and hit the right arrow on the remote control.
Once in the SYSTEM menu, go to PARENTAL GUIDE. It will ask for your code.
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
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.
