Need a Remote control to lift CHILD LOCK

I have an AVOL TV and accidentally hit the CHILD LOCK button, I could not retrieve the MENU on the menu button on the TV, everything is locked, however, i don't have a remote control to unlock this feature. How could i unlock this feature??? Is there another brand with same code to unlock this feature. This TV i bought from a friend in theater. I am deployed at the moment in Kuwait and obtain this TV from a friend when they demob, and the problem is he lost the remote control. They do have all purpose remote controls at the PX here in Kuwait, when i look at the menu booklet, there are all kinds of brands with codes in order to operate the TV with the remote. Is there another brand related to this AVOL brand so i can insert code and unlock this feature. Appreciate your urgent consideration on this matter....

Our old model Prima tv won't turn on after i accidentally pressed the child lock please help me


Do you have the remote control for this TV? If so, you should be able to access the menu to disable the child lock. If you don't have the original remote, you may be able to use a universal remote to access the TV's menu.

Zenith Z42PT320. I set parental lock code for my son and forgot password. How do I reset or retrieve?


Zenith TV unlock [Child lock]
Tune the television to a channel blocked by a child lock. The words "Enter Lock Code" will appear on the screen with four dashes underneath
Press the numbers on the remote control to enter the child lock pass code to unlock your Zenith television. When the code is entered correctly, the blocked channel becomes visible. The words "Enter Lock Code" remain on the screen if the password is not correct

Enter "0000" if you did not change the password on the television prior to enabling the child lock feature. This number is the default pass code for the child lock.
Push "7777" if you changed the pass code for the television but no longer remember the code. This number allows you to bypass the child lock and watch the programming.
Key lock
Press the "Menu" button on the remote control to access the "Main Menu" screen on the television.
Scroll to "Special" using the up or down arrow buttons and press the right arrow button to access the "Special" sub-menu.
Push the up or down arrow button to highlight "Key Lock" and then press the right arrow button.
Press the up or down arrow button to change "Key Lock" to "No" and then press the "Menu" button to save the setting.

I have an AKAI TV CT-2877A (M) and the "child


Hi,

As long as you remember the "CODE" The child lock on a TV is a wonderful thing.

The lock sometimes causes unwanted trouble--if it gets accidentally turned on and you don't know the code, you can find yourself unable to fully enjoy the full range of available television stations. Please apply the following possible 5 different solutions taht verified by different users and than hopefully you'll be back to watching regular TV ....


  1. Bring Up TV Menu ; Power on the television with the activated child lock on. Push the "Menu" button on the remote control. A series of features appears on the screen, ranging from the overall TV functions to the video display and the audio setup features ,Choose "Options" and a new menu appears on the screen. From the new menu select "Child Lock." The exact setup selection is going to vary slightly, although the child protection is always referred to as either "Child Lock" or "V-Chip." The V-chip is the actual chip built into the television that blocks out certain television programming.
  2. Try a "factory reset" action... This should be somewhere in the TV menu system. However Please note that will clear everything, so you may need to re-program every things..the channels etc.
  3. Hold the lock key in the remote for few seconds . you will get the lock tool bar . you can unlock it there
  4. Hold the display button on the remote for 10 seconds.
  5. As a The last solution which is common for all TV sets..
    • Try to find the User manual for your television. The section In the manual about how to set the child lock feature will also explain how to unlock it.
    • Try a few "universal methods" for unlocking the child lock. Some televisions have a universal code built in for disabling the child lock --no matter what your code is. A commonly used code is "0000."
    • Unplug your television for at least 1 hour . The internal memory battery of the TV is what helps remember what your code. When TV is unplugged for an extended period of time, it clears the internal memory, which in turn will reset your child lock code back to "0000 " again...
if the problem still continues you have to email to : http://www.akaiusa.com/

Hope this helps!

How to remove child locks


Hi there,


If you have lost or forgotten the code, the default factory password is 0000. This should still work even if you have set another password and forgotten. You should also deactivate the lock fully from the menu if you no longer wish to use it or activated it accidentally.


Disabling the child lock (and/or other locks):


(This can be done from the remote or the buttons on the front of the TV)


1. Press MENU to open the main menu.

2. Press CH+ or CH- to highlight PREFERENCES.

3. Press OK to enter the PREFERENCES menu.

4. Press CH+ or CH- to highlight FPA Lock (Front Panel lock) .

5. Press VOL+ or VOL- to switch the lock on or off

6. Press MENU repeatedly to exit the menu


The menu will disappear if no buttons are pressed on the remote for several seconds.


Please let me know if you need further assistance.


Regards,

BElectric.

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 !!!

I accidently put the child lock on the magnavox tv how can i get it off with a universal remote?


Depend on your remote would be easier with the remote that came with the TV. Can you acses the TVs menu with your universal? if not I don't think there's anything you can do. if yes, this how you do it:

1 Press MENU to show the on-screen menu.
2 Press VOL+ or VOL- repeatedly until SET is highlighted.
3 Press CH+ or CH- to highlight CHILD LOCK.
4 Press VOL+ or VOL- to choose ON or OFF. Choose ON to disable all the buttons on the front of the TV. CHILD LOCK ON will appear briefly on the TV screen each time you press a button on the front of the TV. You can still operate the TV with the remote control.You can still use the POWER button on the front of the TV, but only to turn off the TV (not on). Set CHILD LOCK to OFF to cancel this feature so you can use the buttons on the front of the TV again.
5 Press TV/AV/EXIT to remove the menu from the screen.

Child Lock issue


Unfortunately the Child Lock facility disables the buttons on the TV.

You should be able to get a replacement remote control from an authorised Philips dealer, or you could try a universal remote control form most electrical retailers. Philips make a range of universal remote controls.

Instructions for activating and de-activating the child lock are in the manual. If you don't have the manual, download it here:

Apex tv pf2030 child lock


I'm afraid you will need the original remote control hand unit folks. Apex TVs use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The override code for many models is 6688. Other sets may not have one, or may have a default code of 1225 instead of an override code.
  1. To use the override code:
  2. Hit the MENU key to get to the menus.
  3. Go down to the SYSTEM menu and hit the right arrow on the remote control.
  4. Once in the SYSTEM menu, go to PARENTAL GUIDE. It will ask for your code.
  5. Enter the override code listed above. From here, you can turn on and off different rating restrictions, as well as set a new code.
No matter what the V-chip code is set to, the override code will still work. 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
