Question about Televison & Video
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....
Here is the link to avol's website, i would suggest sending a inquiry to them or check out thier support section of thier website http://avl21c.com/renewal/surpport_ServiceInstruction.htm
hope that helps

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 ....

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.
