To unlock all its locked functions, you must have its original remote control A universal remote control won't go. Try to get its original one. Don't waste more money by buying a universal remote control.

You can purchase an RCA universal remote that will let you access the A-V inputs. These only cost about $10.00 or so. Stargazer

SOURCE: Can't access AV Channel on Sony KV-C27TD

If the TV has no RCA inputs, then there is no "AV channel" option for it on any remote, just channel selection.

The purpose of a RCA to SCART converter (aka RF modulator) is to convert one of your channels to an A/V input. They operate (standard) on either channel 3 or 4 as selected by a switch on the converter.

If your converter is unpowered, it's entirely possible that the signal coming out is not good enough to overpower your antenna signal. In this case, you may need a powered unit (such as this one http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=5806345&productCategoryId=abcat0107025&type=product&tab=7&id=1067388827858#productdetail) which can actively "shut off" the antenna input when signal is received from the auxiliary device.

Buy a 21 way scart.This will have an 'AV' enable connection built in. After fitting, turn on the TV, then turn on the DVD player. It will automatically enable the DVD through the scart socket.

My akai tv is locked,don't know the code


Most TVs have a parental control lock that can be set to prevent children from watching specific television shows. In order to activate or deactivate the controls, you need to know the four digit security code or parental lock control password. If you forget the number you chose or if the lock gets set accidentally, it is still possible to unlock the TV.
Instructions

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.

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.

Unlock all of the channels on the TV by entering the factory reset code. There are three main reset codes that TV manufacturers set. These are 0711, 6688 and 3308. Try each one until you find the one that works. This will reset the TV to original factory settings. When you do this, you will loose any information that you have stored in the TV, such as favorite channels, automatic timers and the clock. You will have to go through the full initial set up.

Call the technical support service number in your owner's manual if none of those codes work. A technician can help you troubleshoot the television because the problem may not be the locking control. When you call, make sure that you have the model number and serial number of the TV.

Take your television to a TV repair shop. In some cases, a professional who access to wiring diagrams for your television set may have to rewire certain components in order for the television to unlock. This is usually the case when the TV locks by itself while it is on.

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

How to reset the parental control code - I forgot the code and want to reset with a new one


This is what I found in the instruction manual on this and I posted it here for you. Try using 3355 for the code and everything else listed here. If that doesn't work, try the very last tip which tells you how to do a factory reset and repeat the first step using the 3355 as the code.

Here's the instructions from manual:

Parental Control
Parental Control allows you to block certain channels or programs so children cannot view
programs that are not age appropriate.
To enter the Parental Control menu, you need an
access code. The first time you enter, use access
code 3355. See "Setting an Access Code" on
page 33 for information on creating a new access
code.
You can set the following options to block
content:
• Channel Lock — Blocks selected channels
• Movie Rating — Blocks movies based on their rating (G, PG, PG-13, R, NC-17, and X)
• TV Ratings — Blocks TV shows based on their rating
• Block Options — Turns on or off all your parental control settings
NOTE: You can use Clear All to unblock the channels and programs that you have set.
NOTE: If the Block Control in the Parental Control menu is enabled, all the sub screens in POP (POP1,
POP3 and POP12) mode will be blank



Setting an Access Code m
After you enter the Parental Control menu for the first time, you can set your own four-digit access
code. If for any reason you lose or forget your access code, you can use the default code.
1 In the Parental Control menu, select Change Code.
2 Using the number pad on the remote control, enter a new access code.
3 Select Exit.




Reset the original factory defaults. Press Menu on the remote
control, select Setup, and then select Factory Reset

Tv remote needed


The most inexpensive solution, is to buy a universal remote. I own a One-for-All universal remote (model URC-4220) which works with Memorex TVs. I bought it at Walmart for less than 10 dollars.
If you want to pay a little more money, here are a few websites to visit: REMOTES.COM 1-800-REMOTES
MRREMOTECONTROLS.COM 1-800-221-1471
You can find a few more websites by typing in:
MEMOREX TV REMOTES into the Google searchbox.
Hope these suggestions help you out. Please take a moment to rate the info I have provided, but using the rating system below. Thanks.

I FINALLY GOT SOMEONE AT MEMOREX TO ADMIT THAT THEIR REMOTE IS THE ONLY ONE THAT WILL WORK ON THIS (MT2024) SET. "$88.OO".--- WHAT A DEAL FOR A NEW TV! IF YOU BREAK OR LOSE THE REMOTE, THE FRUSTRATION QUICKLY BUILDS AND ADDS UP TO MORE THAN $88.00
