It might be impossible to release the child lock, without its remote control. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

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.

The battries in remote are new. the remote wont change channels or turn power on and off.The buttons on the tv set wont work either.It keeps saying child lock is on.


As the remote is not working please

1.check the batteries are properly installed with correct polarity.(+ and -)

2.Check weather correct remote operating is set.(TV,VCR etc)

If both are OK then please programm your remote again with the TV.As you removed your battries it might reset the code

When using buttons on TV it says CHILD LOCK is ON.

Child lock fuction is to prevent children operating buttons in TV console. This can be set only by remote. Cannot set by TV console Buttons.If this fuction is activated you cannot use the TV console buttons.

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 Problem

Press and hold the TV/AV button and then press the red on/off button, the TV screen will become black, and any buttons on the main unit or the remote control become inoperative. If you want to switch on the TV, press and hold the TV/AV button and then press the ON/OFF button again, the TV will return to the normal TV reception
