Maybe the pin of 0000 may work it has worked on other items Good luck otherwise you will have to take it to a technician, or ring the company that makes the brands they may have it or know how to take it off.

My screen is all blue, no image and voice. a lock on the upper left corner


It sounds that your TV is locked by someway. Just unlock it. Proceed the following.
Many Jensen TVs have a parental lock that can be set to stop children from watching certain television shows or channels. In order to activate or deactivate the controls, you have to know the four-digit code or parental lock passcode. If you forget the passcode or if the lock gets set accidentally, you can still unlock the TV.

• Turn on the TV using the remote control. In most cases, you will need the original Jensen remote to unlock the TV if you aren't sure of the unlock code. You can purchase an original replacement online if necessary.

• Look at the screen. If you see a red key on the bottom of the screen, press "Function" and "Mute" on the remote at the same time. This will unlock the channel. Do this if you want to bypass the lock to watch a certain show or channel while leaving the TV locked. All 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 0711 or 3308. These are the Jensen factory reset codes that will reset the TV to the original factory settings. By doing this, you will loose any information that you have stored in the TV, such as channel labels and schedules. You will have to program the TV again by going through the entire initial set up.

•Call the technical support service number in your owner's manual if neither of those codes work. A technician can help you troubleshoot the television as the problem may not be the parental lock feature. Have the model number and serial number of the TV available when you call.
• Take your television to a TV repair shop if neither of the codes work and the TV locked by itself while it was turned on. In this case, the TV may need to be rewired.

Resetting my parental passcode


Hi haventaclue

I searched for your manual but came up empty handed(for free at least). There are places you can pay to download it, but I did find this one, and similar vintage to yours, that has instructions on the parental control. Not sure how to reset the code. I did find this on page 18, it regards setting up a secondary set of blocks. Perhaps you could try that.
• If you intend to change or forget your Secret No., clear the original Secret No. and set
up a new one.
1 Repeat steps 1 to 3 of [1] MPAA RATING, or 1 to 2 of [To cancel
the V-CHIP BLOCK screen while V-CHIP BLOCK has been
activated], then “INPUT SECRET No.” will be displayed.
2 Press and hold both VOL (+) and CH DOWN (9) on the TV set
simultaneously until the message “INPUT SECRET No.”
disappears.
3 Press MENU two times to exit.

If you forgot your password for this feature, press the following buttons on the remote, one at a time. (Note: You must be in the password entry screen) Press, Mute, Display,Clear and Reset, this unlocks parental controls and you can now re-enter a new password.
OR TRY THIS..
Press and hold Menu on the TV AND volume down on the remote for 3 seconds. Nothing will appear on the screen, and the Parental Controls will unlock, and you can re-enter a new password with the LOCK PARENTAL CONTROLS

Parental block


You can try these codes 2211 or 3308 if they do not work you will need to reset the unit. You will need to unplug it for 45 minutes that will reset the TV to factory settings. Then the pass codes I provided should work.
