Just unplug the machine. Wait a few seconds, then plug back in. This always works for me.

How to Unlock Your Apex TV When Screen is Locked


If you find that your Apex TV is showing a blank screen with a red key on the bottom left then the Screen Lock otherwise known as Child Lock or Parental Control has been accidentally activated and your TV will not respond to commands from the remote control.

To resolve this and reactivate the TV simply press the (function or F) button and hold down the mute button on the remote at the same time for around 10 seconds. 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 to reset any preset rating levels.

This extract is taken from an Apex Manual specific to the child lock function;

The Childlock function is designed to prevent chiIdren from watching TV. To activate: HoId down the F button and then press the MUTE button until the symboI “ ” appears on the screen. The TV will enter the Childlock mode.
Except for the “ ” symbol the screen becomes blue or black . To unlock the TV hoId down the F button and then press the MUTE button again.

Please Note:
The Childlock can be set or cancelIed only by the remote controI. After setting Childlock, secure the remote control in a safe place.

Many thanks for using FixYa.

How to get the childlock to unlock


Try holding the child lock button for 4 seconds (or until you hear the beep). This should toggle the lock on or off depending on the current setting.

I hope this helps. If this doesn't work, there is probably a problem with the control panel (keypad or the wiring).

Cindy Wells
(I've found that sometimes it feels like you have to hold the button for longer than the 4 seconds to toggle the lock off. So try holding the button for longer before trying to find a problem with the control panel.)

almost all flat panels have a "press and hold" unlock function. Try pressing the power switch and holding it for 10 seconds. If this doesn't work, try the other panel buttons.

I have a double draw dishwasher . the child lock key comes up and the dishwasher does not start


The lock button activates/deactivates the Keylock or the Childlock functions. This button has either a key or a padlock icon. I believe that on this model it is a padlock

Keylock

The Keylock feature disables all the buttons on the control panel.

To activate, press and hold the button until you hear one beep (3 seconds). The symbol

appears in the electronic display when the Keylock feature is activated.

Childlock

The Childlock feature locks the drawer and disables all the buttons on the control panel.

To activate, press and hold the button until you hear two beeps (5 seconds). The symbol

appears in the electronic display when the Childlock feature is activated.

To cancel the Childlock feature, press and hold the button until you hear one beep and the
symbol disappears from the electronic display.

This information can also be found in your product's Use and Care manual. If yours has been misplaced you can download or print one from Fisher and Paykel's website. http://www.fisherpaykel.com/customercare/userguide/index.cfm

If this doesn't work... And I've seen these units do some odd things. Try unplugging it for about an hour (if plug is not under sink you can turn of the breaker that powers the unit). Then plug it back in and see if that works. These dishwasher like many modern day appliances have solid state microprocessors in them which sometimes need reset just like a computer.

Hope this helps.

If the touch screen of the Camcorder is not working, please follow the troubleshooting steps.

Please make sure that you're using fully charged batteries.

Turn off the Camcorder and turn ON again and check the operation.

Try resetting the Camcorder by pressing the reset button above the hand strap.

Perform a power resetting of the Camcorder. To perform power resetting, please remove the battery pack, turn the Power switch to ON for more than 15 seconds, turn the Power switch to OFF position and then reinsert the battery pack.


If the issue persists even after performing all the above-mentioned steps, service is required.

I hope this information will help you to resolve the touch screen issue of the Camcorder.

How remove childlock?


Hello

Just try this. In most panasonic sets, this process will unlock your TV.

Panasonic sets need to be reset to clear the v-chip settings. To do this, put it in standby mode,[ie Power ON the set by its fron panel power switch, and then power OFF by remote control handset, without powering it off by front panel power switch again] then press the POWER and ACTION buttons at the same time and then turn the power off. The set should reset to the factory defaults, and reset the v-chip.
ok

Stella@starridgestables.com i cannot get the child lock to turn off and i cannot get the dishwasher to star


please provide the full model number of our kitchenaid dishwasher.
have you tried turning the power to dishwasher off and back on again from the mains switch.

Childlock can be turned off by pressing the childlock button for 4-5 secs.
If childlock light is continuously flashing then there is a fault in dishwasher.
