TV is locked

My 3 yr old was playing with our TV remote and a red padlock symbol appeared in the top left hand corner of the TV screen. We have pushed every botton but nothing will unlock the TV. It is a BASE 51cm TV/DVD Combo (Model No DTC2181). Please help!!!

Just like a few of your other readers mentioned, we pushed the button below the AV/TV button for 3 seconds and the screen unlocked. Thanks for everyone's advise, we were ready to throw out the TV.

Padlock, blue screen


Somehow in handling the remote control I pushed a button or combination of buttons and now have a blue screen with a lock symbol in red in the top left hand corner. I've tried turning the tv off, and unplugging it, as well as a combination of buttons on the remote, but it still is there.
What do I need to do to remove the lock?
