Question about Insignia LCDTV26 26 in. Television

My insignia CRT tv has a child lock code on it that I put on it myself lol funny enough I obviously wasn't awake and alert enough to remember what the heck I set the damn code to. YIKES! And so the "0000" isn't working and neither is this so called "1397". What now? lol

Zenith Z42PT320. I set parental lock code for my son and forgot password. How do I reset or retrieve?


Zenith TV unlock [Child lock]
Tune the television to a channel blocked by a child lock. The words "Enter Lock Code" will appear on the screen with four dashes underneath
Press the numbers on the remote control to enter the child lock pass code to unlock your Zenith television. When the code is entered correctly, the blocked channel becomes visible. The words "Enter Lock Code" remain on the screen if the password is not correct

Enter "0000" if you did not change the password on the television prior to enabling the child lock feature. This number is the default pass code for the child lock.
Push "7777" if you changed the pass code for the television but no longer remember the code. This number allows you to bypass the child lock and watch the programming.
Key lock
Press the "Menu" button on the remote control to access the "Main Menu" screen on the television.
Scroll to "Special" using the up or down arrow buttons and press the right arrow button to access the "Special" sub-menu.
Push the up or down arrow button to highlight "Key Lock" and then press the right arrow button.
Press the up or down arrow button to change "Key Lock" to "No" and then press the "Menu" button to save the setting.

Locate the manual for your television. Though slightly embarrassing, accidentally turning on the child lock to a TV is a common problem. The section In the manual about how to set the child lock feature will also explain how to unlock it.
Try a few "universal methods" for unlocking the child lock. Some televisions have a universal code built in for disabling the child lock --no matter what your code is. A common code is "0000."
Unplug your television for a few minutes. The internal battery of the TV is what helps remember what your code. If the TV is unplugged for an extended period of time, it clears the internal memory, which in turn will reset your child lock code.

Hi i have a samsung tv n im with bell but i forgot my password for parental control... help??!!


The child lock on a TV can be a wonderful thing. A parent sometimes cannot be present for the duration of a kids' show, so the child lock ensures they can't watch programs that are off limits. The lock can, however, cause unwanted trouble--if it gets accidentally turned on and you don't know the code, you can find yourself unable to fully enjoy the full range of available television stations. Follow a few easy steps you'll be back to watching regular TV in no time. Instructions Locate the manual for your television.

Child Lock on Insignia TV


I CAN HELP! After my having my Insignia NS-20LCD picture locked for over a year because no one could give me a way to unlock it, a co-worker found the secret!!

When facing the back of the TV, there is another on/off switch on the back on the right side just under the curve (very difficult to see). I didn't even know it was there.

Once you locate, turn the set on using that switch while you hold in the "menu" button on the right side (when facing the front) of the TV. This will reset the television and unlock the screen!

Screen says "LOCK" cant get out of it!!


If you headed this under the right category you listed this as a Insignia LCDTV26... Assuming that is correct, with the TV on try pressing 1-2-3-4 on the remote and see if that unloacks it.. That is Insignia's default code for the Child Lock feature on this model... If you would like the Owner's Manual email me privately and I'll send it to you. Just make sure to include the model number of the unit and what it is you need in the email. I get roughly 600 emails a day and it's hard to remember which email goes with what problem. Good Luck Bill premtech@willapabay.org
