    There is a red key symbol on the tv screen -- the remote will only work to turn the tv off and on.

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 desired. Good Luck

Common Fixes for Wii


Almost every Wii problem can be solved with a few troubleshooting techniques. The first of which is to unplug the power cord from both the power outlet and your Wii console. This is a particularly useful fix when the following error message appears on-screen: 'Error Occurred. Press the Eject button and remove the disc. Turn the power off and follow the instructions in the console manual' Also, check the disc to see if it is dirty or scratched. Even if it isn't, clean it with a warm, damp rag. If you are having trouble with your Wii remote, check the battery level by pressing the 'home' key on the front of the Wii remote. The 'home' key has a symbol of a small house and brings up a menu that shows the battery level of your Wii remotes. If the battery level on your Wii remote is fine, hold down the sync buttons on both the Wii console and Wii remote. The sync button on the Wii console is located underneath the plastic flap on the front (just below the power button) and the sync button on the Wii remote is located under the battery cover (just above the batteries.) Both buttons are red and have the word 'sync' on them, so they should be fairly easy to find. Hold both buttons for about five seconds or until the 4 lights on the Wii remote flash. Wait a couple seconds and your Wii remote should be re-synced.

Do the buttons on the actual TV do anything? Try for example just turning up or down the volume, or changing the channel using the TV's built in buttons. If nothing functions with those then you have some larger issue with the TV.

Let me know what you find, just reply here,

Thanks

What is thecode for rca tv


Try this method as it is a bit easier than keying in different codes. One thing to consider is that not all TV's are compatible with the remote so if you have changed the TV out you may experience this issue. In order to program the remote to the TV turn the TV on and put the remote in SAT mode by pressing the SAT button in the upper left hand corner of the remote.Now press and hold the TV button Next to the SAT button until all buttons light up across the top of the remote and release. Now press the small red TV button and release. This should result in the top clear TV being lit constantly. Now press the arrow up key slowly until the TV turns off. Once it does press the arrow down key once and then the arrow up key. The TV should turn on. Now press the pound symbol at the botttom right of the remote. The TV button on the top should flash three times. Now you can use the remote to control the TV. If you are unable to get the TV to turn off then the TV is not compatible with the remote. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Child Locked the TV


* 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 desired. * If your TV asks for a 4-digit code or password please enter 3308 or 6688 to unlock the screen or reset any preset rating levels. * If you have a GT2011J or GT2011S Television, hold the (Display) button for 10 seconds, it will unlock the screen. If password or code is requested, try 3308 or 6688. One of the above methods should get you past the lock. If so, I would take the opportunity to disable the lock in the TV's menu so this doesn't happen again. If this still doesn't work, you can call Apex Customer Support at (800)880-1227.
