Re: turn off child lock

To unlock the Panel Lock, Parent Lock, or Child Lock, follow these steps:

  1. Turn on your TV.
  2. On the remote, press the Menu button. The Set-Up Menu appears.
  3. Scroll to the Key Lock function and set function to Off.
  4. Press the Exit button to exit.
Note: If you don't have a remote, you may be able to do the same thing by pressing the Menu button on the front or side panel of your TV and using the volume or channel up and down buttons on the TV to scroll to the Key Lock function and set it to Off.

How will i have this resolved? my sanyo k50 tv showing "locked" whenever turned on??

The TV is locked by someway. If you're using a universal remote control, this might have happen. If you wish to unlock it, you must have its original remote control. For more information go to Unlock procedure to many brand TVs are given. Pull up older posts.

I have a problem with the remote control that is not working, I have taken it local technicians but nothing . My TV is in child lock so I need a remote for the tall big telefunken TV

Hi what you can do is to buy a universal remote control for this TV to remove the child lock. You can get that online or on any electronic shops in your area. Once done here is the instructions on how to remove the child lock using remote.
Look at the "Power" indicator light on the front of the television to check if it is blinking. When blinking, the child lock is enabled. You can also check by pressing the "Power" button on the television.
Point the remote control at the television and press one of the buttons on the number keypad. The "Power" indicator light will stop blinking, indicating the child lock is turned off.
Lock the television again by pressing and holding the "Power" button on the remote control until the indicator light starts blinking. It takes approximately three seconds before the light turns on. Thanks

I have a Warfedale tv (do not know the model) and the child lock is on and I do not have a remote. How can I unlock the tv without the remote?

Never heard of that brand!

You need to look at it real good- find the manufacturers label which will have the model and serial number. Copy the information and go to any good electronics store and find a universal remote for that set. Configure the remote and find the child lock menu and turn the lock off. If it requires a password and you do not have that either, you will have to perform a "reset to factory defaults" from the menu.

TV's will not usually allow access to the child lock controls without a remote.

My TV is on child lock how do I unlock please

  1. Locate the manual for your television. Though slightly embarrassing, accidentally turning on the child lock to a TV is a common problem. The section In the manual about how to set the child lock feature will also explain how to unlock it.

  2. Try a few "universal methods" for unlocking the child lock. Some televisions have a universal code built in for disabling the child lock --no matter what your code is. A common code is "0000."

  3. Unplug your television for a few minutes. The internal battery of the TV is what helps remember what your code. If the TV is unplugged for an extended period of time, it clears the internal memory, which in turn will reset your child lock code.

I have the child lock on and the remote control is broken. How can I turn the tv on without the remote control

The power button on the TV doesn't work because of the child lock?
I went over the copy of your manual for your TV. It must be the child lock timer problem.
I would try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 mins and see if that reset the TV and releases the lock.
If it doesn't work, the remote needs to be replaced. A universal remotes aren't really universal when you need to use special buttons. The remote made for the TV is the best.
If your TV is the model 47PFL7403D, here's the cheapest place to buy a replacement.

Child Lock on Insignia TV

I CAN HELP! After my having my Insignia NS-20LCD picture locked for over a year because no one could give me a way to unlock it, a co-worker found the secret!!

When facing the back of the TV, there is another on/off switch on the back on the right side just under the curve (very difficult to see). I didn't even know it was there.

Once you locate, turn the set on using that switch while you hold in the "menu" button on the right side (when facing the front) of the TV. This will reset the television and unlock the screen!
