Kids were playin wit remote &locked my tv & they don't know code is there a master reset?

If you comment back here with your exact model number, I may be able to help you more pecisely.

Otherwise you can try enteing some of the Standard Master Unlock Codes that work for other TVs.

0711 - 0711 (enter 0711 twice in a row)


Or try holding the SLEEP button on the remote, and MENU button on tv at the same time.
Or try the F function key on remote then MUTE on remote at same time.
Or try holding the DISPLAY button down for 3 seconds.

If any of these solutions work, comment back here on this page and let me know.

Otherwise I will look around some more and get back to you when I see your comment.

If this was at all helpful please click on the 4 Thumbs Up rating icon.

Thank you very much.

What is the factory reset code for the dell w3201c tv? For some reason, my xbox 360 will not work with the HDMI when hooked to this tv. It works fine when hooked to other televisions, so I am trying...

Code is 3355

If that fails, try this
* Press and hold the Input Source button - on the TV (not on the remote); continue to hold it until the last step
* Press and release the Power button
* The TV turns off
* Press and release the Power button
* The TV turns on
* Wait 10 seconds
* A message appears saying the TV has been reset
* Release the Input Source button

Power button does not turn TV on.

Can you turn it on with the remote? Do any of the other function swithes on the tv work vol,ch up,down,menu etc. If switches on set do not work check in menu for button lock feature. keeps kids from pushing buttons.

Dell w3201c frozen screen

You could try a power drain:  Unplug the TV's power cable so that the TV is not grounded to the house.  Then press and hold in the TV's own power button in for one minute to drain the capacitors.  Plug the TV back in and see if it made a difference.  If not, it would appear that the software in your TV's mainboard is corrupt and would need to be serviced.
