Contact agent for the unlock code.
Menu and 4 digit code unlocks factory default.
Problem is caused when wrong sequence of keys on remote is pressed, part of parental control.

Padlock, blue screen

Somehow in handling the remote control I pushed a button or combination of buttons and now have a blue screen with a lock symbol in red in the top left hand corner. I've tried turning the tv off, and unplugging it, as well as a combination of buttons on the remote, but it still is there.
What do I need to do to remove the lock?

Tv dvd combo locked

Press the DIS button (should be the orange one) on the remote for five seconds. That's how it got locked in the first place :)

Mine says 'Lock' / 'Unlock' when I do it, no key symbol.

Audiosonic TV - Word "Factory" appears on top left corner

Try pressing the RETURN button (above the DISP button - number 6 on the button list in the manual). The button has two arrows chasing each other. It worked for me on our Audiosonic KMC TH68 TV.
