The set is in childlock mode, and will need to be deactivated. Try pressing the + key in the right bottom corner of the remote for at least 5 seconds. See how you go, and please post me back if it didnt work and I will keep looking for a solution for you.
Press MENU to show the on-screen
Press VOL+ or VOL- to highlight SET.
Press CH+ or CH- to highlight PARENTAL CONTROL. Press VOL+ or VOL- to display the
SECRET CODE screen.
Press VOL+ (on the remote) and the CH+ button on the front of the TV at the same time. Press the Number buttons to enter a four-digit code. The code will appear on the screen as you enter it. The code "0000" is the default of the TV. If you have not set up a code previously, then "0000" is the code.You cannot use "0000" after you set your own code (unless you reset the code to "0000").
Press MENU to save the code.
Hope this helps. :}

It sounds to me like a child lock function, which is usually what the screen + padlock is on TVs. Usually your original remote would have a button / sequence to unlock the mode. If you still have your original remote, look for a child lock button or refer to your remote manual (and/or TV manual for the child lock feature) to unlock the mode.
Sorry man The only way I know to unlock it is with the original remote. They are available at http://www.remotes.com You have to press the M or Mute button and the F or the Function button at the same time. If the remote you have has these buttons try them. Like I said if it doesnt work, you will need an original remote. See if anyone you know has one you can borrow or the store where you bought the TV, maybe they will let you borrow one. Good Luck
