I can't find my owners manual on my Polaroid tv--but while working with the remote--pressed menu and scanned over to parental controls and mine takes a password. Maybe that is what is wrong with yours--Duh on my part-but hope this might help you.

My son did the same thing to his tv and to get it off you simply press and hold down the play/repeat button for approximately 5 seconds and then it will disappear from the screen.

Look in the owners manual, sometimes there's a master code. I've even seen them on the warranty page.

Polaroid TTM-2003 Locked up.


The same thing happened to me. The manual on polaroid.com says to press and hold the F button (located at the top of the remote) and press the mute button at the same time. This will unlock as well as lock the TV. It's a child safety feature.

DVD parental lock


I have a GE 13TVR62 (with a problem listed here). I've learned that the Parental Lock Settings are changed by using the Remote Control. Usually the actual Settings are changed by pressing the Up or Down or Left or Right Arrows to make the Change; while the Parental Lock is Highlighted on the Menu.

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.
