Question about GE 19GT317 19" TV
My husband accidentally hit the parental control and now the TV is stuck on channel 3 and the menu will not come up to remove it and the remote to the TV is lost.
Thats EXACTLY what happened to our tv!
Ours was originally locked on channel 4 but I left it unplugged overnight and now its oddly stuck on channel 3.
The only thing I can think of to do is try to search for/buy a remote that will work on the tv to bring the menu up again. I don't know how to manually reset it or do anything.
