SOURCE: Childlock on and i dont

You may not be able to remove the child lock without the remote. (as that is the whole point of it..lol) your best bet is probably to pick up a cheap "one for all" remote and see if that will remove it.

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.

If this Tip has helped please do take time to indicate this by using the rating buttons on the page below.

Many thanks for using FixYa.

I have a problem with the remote control that is not working, I have taken it local technicians but nothing . My TV is in child lock so I need a remote for the tall big telefunken TV


Hi what you can do is to buy a universal remote control for this TV to remove the child lock. You can get that online or on any electronic shops in your area. Once done here is the instructions on how to remove the child lock using remote.
Look at the "Power" indicator light on the front of the television to check if it is blinking. When blinking, the child lock is enabled. You can also check by pressing the "Power" button on the television.
Point the remote control at the television and press one of the buttons on the number keypad. The "Power" indicator light will stop blinking, indicating the child lock is turned off.
Lock the television again by pressing and holding the "Power" button on the remote control until the indicator light starts blinking. It takes approximately three seconds before the light turns on. Thanks

Alba hd tv, no remote and the child lock is on just need to bypass it model no lcd3288ohdf


Okay - this is a secret child lock that Alba puts onto their tvs - not the child lock accessible via the menu which is 0000 as default. Basically there is a childlock built into the handset. Basically if you hold the menu exit button for more than 10 seconds the handset locks - all that happens then is when you press buttons you will see the blue panel flash on the tv but nothing works. This lock happens when the remote falls down the side of the settee or your child gets their hands on it!!! To unlock, find the menu button on the right hand side of the TV panel and hold it for 15 seconds and the menu screen will pop up - Really important you hold for 15 seconds before releasing. Then simply press the menu exit button on the remote and 'hey presto' - you have control of your TV again! Kind Regards, BIG BAD JON !!!
