This problem can be solved flashing the firmware again, but you need a cable interface between a rs232 port and a VGA D-SUB 15, I have the firmwares for American, Australian, European and Pal models, and the software used to flash it, but I haven¡t the interface cable and I don't know how to build it...Maybe somebody can help with this...

Child lock came on by itself on apex pf2720


Apex TVs have parental locks that allow you to block certain programs based on
their rating. When this feature is no longer needed and you want your TV to display all programming no matter its rating, you must unlock your TV. Unlocking your Apex TV is done completely from your remote control and does not require any tools. The process takes less than 5 minutes.
• Press the "Menu" button on the remote control and use the arrow buttons to scroll down to the "Parental Guide" option, then press the "Enter" button.
Type in the default parental code "6688" if you have not set your own code. If you have set your own code, type it in. If you set your own code and forgot it, override it by using "6688."
Use the arrow keys to switch the parental lock to "OFF." This allows all programs to be viewed no matter the rating. Press the "Exit" button on the remote and start watching all your channels.

I accidently put the child lock on the magnavox tv how can i get it off with a universal remote?


Depend on your remote would be easier with the remote that came with the TV. Can you acses the TVs menu with your universal? if not I don't think there's anything you can do. if yes, this how you do it:

1 Press MENU to show the on-screen menu.
2 Press VOL+ or VOL- repeatedly until SET is highlighted.
3 Press CH+ or CH- to highlight CHILD LOCK.
4 Press VOL+ or VOL- to choose ON or OFF. Choose ON to disable all the buttons on the front of the TV. CHILD LOCK ON will appear briefly on the TV screen each time you press a button on the front of the TV. You can still operate the TV with the remote control.You can still use the POWER button on the front of the TV, but only to turn off the TV (not on). Set CHILD LOCK to OFF to cancel this feature so you can use the buttons on the front of the TV again.
5 Press TV/AV/EXIT to remove the menu from the screen.

The battries in remote are new. the remote wont change channels or turn power on and off.The buttons on the tv set wont work either.It keeps saying child lock is on.


Hi,

As the remote is not working please

1.check the batteries are properly installed with correct polarity.(+ and -)

2.Check weather correct remote operating is set.(TV,VCR etc)

If both are OK then please programm your remote again with the TV.As you removed your battries it might reset the code



When using buttons on TV it says CHILD LOCK is ON.

Child lock fuction is to prevent children operating buttons in TV console. This can be set only by remote. Cannot set by TV console Buttons.If this fuction is activated you cannot use the TV console buttons.

Thanx

I have the radion shack hdtv remote. Cat no


Download the manual and codes from here

http://www.remotecentral.com/cgi-bin/files/dl.cgi?file=others/radio_shack/15135-manual.zip&area=other

Here is how to set the code...

1. Turn TV on
2. Press TV button on remote
3. Hold P button on remote until LED blinks twice
4. Enter the first 5 digit code for Magnavox TV's
5. Press Power button - TV should turn off. If TV doesn't turn off repeat steps 2-5 with the next 5 digit code, until either TV goes off or run out of codes.
6. If out of codes use searching for code method below...

TV codes for Magnavox

10047, 11454, 10054, 10154, 10000, 10250, 10051, 10180, 10060, 10030, 10171, 10092, 10706, 11913, 11904, 11755, 10019, 11365, 11254, 10802, 10386, 10282, 10020, 10187, 10186, 10024, 10179, 10096

Searching for code

1. Turn on TV.
2. Press TV button on remote
3. Press and hold P button until LED blinks twice
4. Enter code 991 on remote - LED blinks twice
5. Press 1 - Device key blinks twice
6. Press Power button once
7. Press and release CH+ key until TV turns off.

At this point in the manual, the manual is only correct depending on what type of TV you have.

In the manual if you press the Power on button the TV should turn itself back on, the fail to state that not all TV's turn on by the power button, the majority now are triggered to turn on, on channel change, however you can't use channel change here to check it as you'll go to the next code... here is my solution...

8. Turn TV back on either using original TV remote, or buttons on front (most TV's if you change channels they come back out of standby mode, very few now turn on by pressing the power button).

9. Press Power button on remote - TV should turn itself off again.
10. Press P button on remote to lock in that code.

If the device does not turn off press CH- to go back through the codes, press and release P button when TV turns off.

Finding code

If you used the search function you might want to know what code it's using. To do this follow these instructions...

1. Press TV button
2. Press and hold P until LED blinks twice
3. Enter 990 and LED blinks twice
4. Press 1 and count number of times LED blinks this is the first digit of your code (e.g. 1 blink = 1, 2 blinks = 2, etc).
5. Repeat step 4 pressing buttons 2 - 5 for the other digits (e.g. for the second digit press 2 count number of blinks.. etc)

At this point the manual doesn't tell you how to get out of this mode, I presume pressing any other button on the remote other than 1-5 will take you out of this mode, either that or leaving the remote alone for 5 minutes.
