Sounds like you  accidentally "set" the parental lock while you were sleeping.

Try this trick: (may or may not work)

aim the remote at the TV "IR sensor", hold down "display button" on the remote for 10 seconds to erase or clear the password.

"IF" this works go into the menu and "TURN OFF" parental control.

Re: Piece of s@#t!

This solution is one that was already stated by Mr. Jerry Hess and it works.
If you are in possession of the remote, Turn the television on, point the remote at the IR light and press the "DISPLAY" Button located above the TV Menu button for approximately 10 seconds or until the lock goes away.
Go into the MENU and turn the parental lock off. "YOU ARE FINIHED"
If you are not in posssion of a remote, contact the AKAI web site for parts and downloads.
