These are from the instruction manual:
If the recorder is on, switch it to standby
Press and hold STOP on the front panel for 3 seconds until the fron display shows unlock.

How do you unlock child lock on a LG BH100 Blu-Ray Disc Player?

Sorry, to say that the user manual states that the only way to turn on/off the child lock is to use the remote control.

The manual can be accessed using this link and following the on-screen instructions:

Time to check under the cushions for the remote controller!

Resetting the Recorder to Factory Settings
1. Make sure that the recorder is on
2. Press and hold the STOP button and STANDBY/ON button.
The recorder turns off with all settings reset.

Try this and let me know if it works.

I have a GoVideo DVR 4300 that has been child locked. I have lost the remote control. Is there any way to unlock it with out the remote?

According to page 16 of the owner's manual, you cannot disable child lock without the remote. Because you have lost the remote, the unit does not offer a manual way to disable that feature. I am not sure if a universal remote will allow you to enter the setup menu, and turn the child lock OFF. You could try that - it might work.

Or you could try contacting them:

Phone (480) 922-0896 or (800) 736-7679 (during business hours)
Web or

They may or may not be able to offer further assistance. The universal remote might help, if you cannot get the original replacement for your unit.

Personally, child lock in DVD players is a pointless and unnecessary extra feature that should not exist; it should really only apply to Blu-Ray/DVD recorders.
