Locked Tv blue screen with Lock icon lower left corner

I have a GPX 13 In tv-dvd combo   Crayola style for kids,  YCTVD1316  I cannot find this model anywhere on the net, nor an instruction manual.  I just purchased it in August online. It worked fine for about 1 month.  My 2 year son must have pushed some buttons and now the tv is locked and useless. No functions work,except on & off to the blue screen with the lock icon.  Any help or Ideas?  The gpx site doesn't even list the tv as one of their products.  it has a button called v-chip and I have no idea what that is for.

My daughter has the Disney 13" tv. It's been working fine then all of a sudden it won't play the DVD anymore. It's stuck on the blue 'Disney' screen. Can you help figure out the problem??

Usually kids tv's in bedrooms collect more dust than downstairs.
The laser probably needs cleaning with a special disc or stripping down and doing properly

I have a red key on bottom left side of screen. Have volume but no picture. None of the controls work on tv or remote.

Your TV is locked.

The Child Lock feature prevents unauthorized viewing of the

television. To activate, press and hold the Function key, and then

press MUTE. you should see a key symbol appear on the screen.

This will lock out all remote functions (except for Standby). To unlock

the TV, press and hold the Function key and press MUTE. This will

unlock the TV. Please note that the only way to activate or deactivate

the Child lock feature is via remote control - please insure that it is
stored securely.

I'm unable to get a picture or sound due to a "key" lock appears in the lower left hand corner of the screen. It will not allow me to unlock it.


Your TV is locked. Do the following to unlock it.

Apex TVs use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The override code for many models is 6688. Other sets may not have one, or may have a default code of 1225 instead of an override code.

  1. To use the override code:
  2. Hit the MENU key to get to the menus.
  3. Go down to the SYSTEM menu and hit the right arrow on the remote control.
  4. Once in the SYSTEM menu, go to PARENTAL GUIDE. It will ask for your code.
  5. Enter the override code listed above. From here, you can turn on and off different rating restrictions, as well as set a new code.
No matter what the V-chip code is set to, the override code will still work. If you have a blank screen with a red key on the bottom left, simply press the (function or F) button and the mute button at the same time. This will unlock the screen and allow you to view the channel as desiredOK.
