Power outage caused child lock, 2729 model tv

We constantly have short power outages but the most recent one locked up my tv. I was about to start a movie, then the power went out and when I turned the TV back on there was a red M at the top of the screen. Figuring it was a TV glitch I turned off the TV, waited for a minute then turned it back on, where the M was replaced with a CHILD LOCK. I can´t find my user manual and can not use the TV at all. I´ve tried pushing buttons on the remote, turning off the TV for hours, unplugging the TV, everything I could think of. The TV is actually an Akai CFT-2729, and the remote control is Akai CK5D-C7.

I'm guessing what you have there is an Akai CFT2791 made by Samsung? And a CFT2729 is not a good model number. You will need to get into the menu and then sub menus to change or turn off the child lock feature. The procedure is well described in the owner's manual and I have the manual. You can email me privately I'll send it to you... Bill

I have kenmore elite dryer but some reason its show CL sign how to off CL sign ?

The CL message means that the Control Lock (or Child Lock) feature is enabled. This prevents any of the buttons changing a setting or starting a cycle with a pet/sibling in the dryer. This is useful if you are cleaning the dryer control panel or have small children.

Kenmore dryers are built by several manufacturers. Without the model number, including the three digit prefix, it's impossible to determine the button or buttons that toggle the feature on or off. However, there is usually a notation in a small font on the appropriate key or in the middle of a line between two key pads. This notation could be a small padlock symbol or a child's face. Other notations could be the words "child lock" or "control lock". If it's a single key, you need to press and hold for 3-5 seconds to toggle the lock. When it's a key combination, you need to press and hold both keys.

For some Samsung manufactured dryers, you press and hold Time and Temperature. These might have a prefix of 592.

Some LG dryers use the Easy Iron button. (Look for a prefix of 796.) Some GE dryers use the Dry Level and Temp buttons.

See for a manufacturer prefix list.

Please add a comment with the model number to get the specific key or key combination needed to deactivate the CL feature. Most dryers will remember the Child Lock state even after a power outage.

I hope this helps.

After a power outage, the Locked display remained on, not allowing me to reset the clock or use the oven portion. Q: How to unlock the Locked display?

On most controls, there is a child lock so kids can not start appliances. This sounds like what has happened. Look for a button that you hold down to unlock. You might have to read your owners manual. Good luck

We had a power outage and the display is blinking and there is no response to pressing any button

First, try unplugging the microwave for 2 to 5 minutes and then plugging it back in. Sometimes, a very brief power outage will be sensed by the control as an internal error and the control will lock itself out.

If it continues to blink and does not respond to key presses after this "hard reset", it is likely a portion of the control board could have been damaged from the power outage.

FYI ... the touch panel for this model is no longer available. I mention that because no response from any key press can also denote a shorted key pad.

Opener on wall will not work after power outage

Actually it sounds like the vacation lock has been enabled. To turn it off press and hold the lock button for 2 seconds and test it out. If this is not it then you will need to replace the logic board and get a surge protector as well. Thanks BB

Thermador SC302T clicking noise, locked door after power outage

iodine, open the upper oven, look thru the grill below the control panel on the right side and there is your model number. The issue here is that when the power came back on the oven run thru a test and your lower lock motor has failed. It will need to be replaced. Yes the only way to stop this is to shut off the breaker.
