Dear Sir:
Follow this step:
Turn on the TV and grab the remote. In most cases, you will need the original remote to unlock the TV if you aren't sure of the unlock code. If you don't have the original remote, you will need to purchase one.

  • 2 Look at the screen. If you see a blank screen with a red key on the bottom of the screen, press 'Function' and 'Mute' at the same time. This should unlock the channel. This is an option for people who want the TV to stay locked but, want to be able to bypass the lock to watch a certain show or channel. All other channels will remain locked and the TV will fully lock when it is turned off.

  • God bless you

    You are going to have the original remote and the owner manual to do this--Universal remotes never had or will have key features the original one has.

    Apex model PF3225, The TV is Locked (blue screen with red key on the bottom left corner). Don't have original remote...please help


    Press the "Menu" button on the remote control and use the arrow buttons to scroll down to the "Parental Guide" option, then press the "Enter" button.
    Type in the default parental code "6688" if you have not set your own code. If you have set your own code, type it in. If you set your own code and forgot it, override it by using "6688."
    Use the arrow keys to switch the parental lock to "OFF." This allows all programs to be viewed no matter the rating. Press the "Exit" button on the remote and start watching all your channels

    You have to assign any digital audio inputs and that requires a functioning controller.

    Rreyecannot make the center and left/right speakers work together and dont have the remote control, what can i do?


    Apparently you don't have the manual either

    The specific product you're inquiring about is not showing in your post. Name the make and model first, then we'll ALL look for the manual. Then (maybe) find a solution. You might find it at the manufacturer's support site, by using a common search engine or these guys...
    retrevo.com
    audio.manualsonline.com
    hifiengine.com
    usermanualguide.com
    vinylengine.com
    Search Engine of your choice: "(product) manual"

    You WILL need a remote for most setup.

    BATTERIES CORRODED, INFA RED NOT WORKING, BUTTONS NOT RESPONDING


    "Batteries corroded"? That would seem to answer all the questions implicit in your post. Electrical contacts don't fare well from having batteries corrode on them. Clean the contacts and replace the batteries.

    Red image can anybody help me


    As the backlite ages it shifts red (pink) this causes the picture to appear more pink than originally. try turning up the brightness under the set up menu of the unit. You usually use the original remote control to access the different picture settings note the settings as they are before you change anything that way if you don't like the new setting you can go back to the previous setting.
