Question about Apex Digital PF2020 20" TV
I got this TV from my brother and the parental control lock is only blocking TV-Y7 broadcasts, and this TV is in my 5 year-old son's room. He doesn't remember the code. Is there any way to reset it or override it, by the way, without the original remote. A DirecTV remote will allow you to key in numbers.
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
