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.

SOURCE: unlock apex tv model # AT2702

  • 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.

  • If your TV asks for a 4-digit code or password please enter 3308 or 6688 to unlock the screen or reset any preset rating levels.

  • If you have a GT2011J or GT2011S Television, hold the (Display) button for 10 seconds, it will unlock the screen. If password or code is requested, try 3308 or 6688.
Hope that helps..........

SOURCE: TELEFUNKEN TV DOES NOT SHOW PICTURE OR SOUND

Hi,

Without knowing the specific model, I can only venture that somehow the Parental Lock has been engaged. Often to disable/disengage, a password/code of some sort is required with entry through the remote.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

IGO tv connected with dish sound come from tv but pictur not show only blue color show


Component RCA Connectors are RED, BLUE, GREEN for picture. Sound is RED and WHITE. The red and white for sound work the same with the YELLOW that does picture. If the RED, BLUE, GREEN are in the wrong order you will get a blue or green picture. For the sound, try the other red and white connectors nearby. Make shore the right red connectors are connected correctly for sound or picture. Otherwise there could be a cable fault or a TV fault. If you get the picture right but not the sound, connect the sound into a stereo.

How do I hook up this flat screen tv to my dvd


TV,s and DVD,s usually provide wiring diagrams to connect them together. Basically the "output" Connections of the DVD will go to the same "Input" connections on the TV. Most are colour coded. Red to red, blue to blue, yellow to yellow. These connections are usually marked Sound Left, Sound right, and video. If the DVD and the TV both have separate sound and video connections, or an "s" video output / input , use those as you will get a better picture and sound. For the standard RCA plug connections all you will need is the standard 3 colour lead to connect them. If you have the fancy S Video connections , you will need the special cable for this. Any good TV sales or electronic sales shop will have them.

Why does my tv have one blue, one red and one green line at the top of the screen but no picture?


The CRT inside the TV has gone bad. You can either find the make and model of the CRT and replace it, or get rid of the tv and buy another one.

Can i fix my tv screen is red


Toshiba 36A10 36" TV is the model you have indicated---

If the screen is all red and or too bright (no green or blue can be seen) the problem is in one of two places: Either a shorted picture tube or the board that plugs onto the end of the tube.

That board sends red,green, and blue video and information to the picture tube via 3 pins on the tube (the K or cathode for each).

The set will have either 3 IC's on that board or 3 transistors, or a single larger IC for this.

to troubleshoot this:

I would locate the Red Cathode and unsolder that pin at the socket on that board--takes red out---if you have green and blue picture then---it is either the IC/transistor that feeds that on the board or the tube itself.

If it has 3 chips (usually will each have a metal plate attached for cooling) you can either remove and replace the red one OR what I do is swap it with the green or blue chip---if suddenly you now have a blue or green only screen you know that part is bad--simple as that.

If for any reason the picture tube turns out to be bad--you are finished and so is the set= way too expensive to replace it.

Let me know if you have questions or need advice.

I have a 32" tv... I must have press a button... bcuz now my tv showing blue screen with a small picture in red of a key... can u plz help me how to remove this and get my regular cable tv back on...


Hi msvkam

To answer your question;
You probably have the parental lock on,
Here`s the procedure and factory default code to unlock it:

Pass Code Menu
This menu allows you to change the access code for the Parental Guide
functions of the TV set. Pressing the .Menu. key when Pass Code
Control is highlighted. This will turn on or off the Pass Code function. With
the Pass Code function ON, you can also change the Pass Code. Use
the down arrow key to highlight .Pass Code,. then enter the new Pass
Code using the numeric keypad. Press the left arrow key when finished.
1. The factory default pass code of 6688 is also the override code, in case you forget your new pass code.

Hope this help,
Cheers

Projection sets have two very common problems outlined below.

The first common problem is convergence

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. The TV can also shut down when the convergence starts to fail.

Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith, RCA and others.

You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from TV Repair Kits using the link at the end of this article.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped or bowed
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

I get sound but no picture


If the screen went dark blue, this is the way that sets mute the video to protect the tube. However If the screen is very bright blue with possibly blue lines going through the screen, either the blue gun in the CRT has failed which is unusual but can happen or the driver transistor/IC which drives the blue gun has gone short circuit. If you know how to use a meter, you can perform a comparison check by comparing say the red O/P TX with the blue O/P TX. Ian

Philips 23PF9966/37 color problem!


Most likely you can adjust it in the Service Alignment Mode (SAM).

Press 062596 followed by the STATUS button (upper left). Navigate to "White Tone", press the right key to enter and select "Normal" mode. Set the colors:

Red = 135, Green = 128, Blue = 133.

The "Cool" and "Warm" menus are deltas from the "Normal" settings:

COOL: R -3, G -1, B 5
WARM: R 2, G -3, B -13

Press the "MENU" button to return to the main menu, then the "Power" button to turn the TV off.
