Apex GT2015 DV Problem

My child lock is engaged, and I have a universal remote. So, I don't have an "F" button to correct the problem. When I tried to fix, it totally disengaged my remote as well. So, my tv has a blank screen, is muted, and I can't turn on or off either manually or by remote. Help!!

Re: Apex GT2015 DV Problem

If your set has a blue screen with a small red lock on it, yes you are in the child lock mode, if there is no red lock on the blue screen then no you have another problem. The trouble is, if you are in the child lock mode, you cannot get out of it with out the proper remote hand unit. you will need to get an original replacement remote from Here: There is no other way I'm afraid. Good luck

Child locked on my tv

Possibly, you will need an original remote to disable or turn off this feature. And some child lock can be accessible through neither MENU of your tv or remote. Check CHILD LOCK option to remove it. If it is a screen lock type of CHILD LOCK feature of tv (a Blue Background display a LOCK icon) and your original remote is lost, try a universal remote for you to possibly unlock it.

My four year old was messing witht he bottons on the front of my Apex AT2702 television set, and not all it shows is a blue screen with a key symbol in the bottom left hand corner.

There are 7 buttons with its front panel including power ON/OFF switch button.They are; From left to right:- Video, Menu, Volume(-ve), Volume(+ve), Channel(-ve) and Channel(+ve). If these buttons are not there, it will be difficult to operate this set without a remote control. If you haven't the remote contro with you now, buy one universal remote control. The universal remote control suited for this set is COMCAST ON DEMAND CUSTOM-3 UNIVERSAL REMOTE control. The setup codes are:-
0748, 0765, 0767

I have an apex ld3249 tv with remote. The remote died a couple of days ago. I have had the tv for 6 weeks. A universal remote will not work. A new Apex remote is $60. Is this going to be an ongoing problem...

There is no warrantee for the remote control for any company's set. A universal remote should work with your Apex tv. I'll give you the model and codes for the remote that suit to your apex TV. Buy one and match it to your TV.
PHILIPS [CL 034] universal remote control.
Codes are:-
0023 0223 0123 0741


Direct Code Entry

1. Press and hold the CODE SEARCH

button until the red indicator stays

on, then release the CODE SEARCH


2. Press and release the desired Mode

button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red

indicator blinks, then stays lit.

3. Enter the 4 digit code from the code

tables. Note: after a valid code entry,

the red indicator turns off. For an

invalid code, the red indicator


4. With your device on, press

CHANNEL UP. If the device

responds, no further programming is

required. Note: If some buttons do

not operate your device, try one of
the other codes for your brand.

Child lock on and do not know how to disengage

Apex TVs use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The override code for many models is 6688. Other sets may not have one, or may have a default code of 1225 instead of an override code.
  1. To use the override code:
  2. Hit the MENU key to get to the menus.
  3. Go down to the SYSTEM menu and hit the right arrow on the remote control.
  4. Once in the SYSTEM menu, go to PARENTAL GUIDE. It will ask for your code.
  5. Enter the override code listed above. From here, you can turn on and off different rating restrictions, as well as set a new code.
No matter what the V-chip code is set to, the override code will still work. If you have a blank screen with a red key on the bottom left, simply press the function or F button and the mute button at the same time. This will unlock the screen and allow you to view the channel as desired

Wont Play DVD

any remote should work but i suggest a name brand like sony logitech or phillips because you dont want to have to replace this for a while and namebrands offer more functions than generics.

As for the dvd not playing dvds it appears the parental lock may be enabled preventing movies from starting after previews .

after you obtain the new remote and have programmed it scroll through the tvs set up menu to see if parental lock function is on if not drop me a line so we can narrow things down also try to push enter button on new remote if the play button doesnt start movie.

Child Locked the TV

* If you have a blank screen with a red key on the bottom left, simply press the (function or F) button and the mute button at the same time. This will unlock the screen and allow you to view the channel as desired. * If your TV asks for a 4-digit code or password please enter 3308 or 6688 to unlock the screen or reset any preset rating levels. * If you have a GT2011J or GT2011S Television, hold the (Display) button for 10 seconds, it will unlock the screen. If password or code is requested, try 3308 or 6688. One of the above methods should get you past the lock. If so, I would take the opportunity to disable the lock in the TV's menu so this doesn't happen again. If this still doesn't work, you can call Apex Customer Support at (800)880-1227.
