Help! How can you unlock a pin on a TV that you don't know?

A friend of mine was playing with the remote and all of the sudden, I can't get a channel. Only snow. I think he locked my tv with a pincode by mistake and now I don't know how to unlock it.. Are there any clues? The tv works.. watching a dvd on it now.. but the channels are totally gone.. and its asking me for a pin.. but no clue!! Desperate.. Can anyone help??

Tried unplugging it for five minutes then plugging it back in? It resets the software.

Go to summary of channel and then press your remote control channel down until the check mark beside your channel that is locked is yellow.Press channel down once more so that the lock becomes yellow.Press on the number 0 on your remote and the lock should disappear (mine did)

Type in as code 0000 or 1111or9999, 0000 should do the trick but it will unlock but every time you turn it on might ask for code so unlock go to menu and channel summary and and any channel that has a lock symbol get rid of it and fixya!t will work.

My tv sanyo cm21kf81A, chassis number FC3-G221 has snow noise on all tv channels, but AV1 and AV2 play good sound

First check cable wire or whatever is connected to set for channels--the leads are connected and wiggle them with set on to see if it clears up--could be a connection where cable wire is connected at end--loose connection there etc.

If tuner is bad causing this and you use a box for signal--most have rear audio/video outputs you can connect to a unused video/audio input on rear of set---bypass the tuner in the set and operate set that way changing channels on box instead of set.

let me know if you have questions or have more information.

Stuck on channel 2, "No Signal" and snow

Two things may be at play here. The tv might be only programmed for reception on channel 2 and will need to be re programmed to receive other channels.
Also try some basic troubleshooting on the remotes. Start with the remote that came with the tv. Replace the batteries try the "MENU" button. If you can get into the menu try to "autoprogram" the TV

Why does my RCA TV cycle through channels on its own?

Hi there!
I think your remote may be at fault. Liquid spill or sweat from the hand accumelates on the inside over some time and then becomes sticky. Some of the buttons may be permanently activated. Then other functions won't work. Have someone check it for you or if familiar yourself. Regards, JUS004

Can't get to "Video 1" to play DVDs

try turning your dvd player on and then doing a channel search if that does not work just buy a RF modulator and hook up your dvd player to it and it will run on channel 3 or 4 and will switch over by itself when you turn on your dvd player

FPA Lock

After doing a little research, it looke like the front panel lock , can only be removed from the parental control menu using your remote. If your universal remote does not get you into the menu, see if you can borrow a friends rca remote long enough to get you into your menu & remove the fpa.
