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.

Hello
Your TV is locked.

The Child Lock feature prevents unauthorized viewing of the

television. To activate, press and hold the Function key, and then

press MUTE. you should see a key symbol appear on the screen.

This will lock out all remote functions (except for Standby). To unlock

the TV, press and hold the Function key and press MUTE. This will

unlock the TV. Please note that the only way to activate or deactivate

the Child lock feature is via remote control - please insure that it is
stored securely.

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.
