Re: VR3845

On the remote, just above the red "REC" button is a button marked "LOCK". Hit this button and it will unlock the panel. I have hit this button accidently several times.

Once again a simple GOOGLE search, and the first thing on the list is the manual for this unit!

I suspect this is what you need.

Deactivating the Buttons on the Unit
(Child Lock)
You can deactivate the buttons on the unit
(except for on/off) for preventing misoperation, such as child mischief.
Hold down
(stop/square black button)
on the unit for more than 5 seconds."LOCKED" appears in the front panel display.
The child lock function is activated and the buttons on the unit are locked. (You can operate the system by using the remote control.)
To cancel, hold down
(stop/square black button)
for more than 5 seconds until "UNLOCK" appears in the front panel display.

If that's not the problem, here's the link for the manual.

My child lock is on on my phillips 755vr dvd player how do i turn it off without the remote

Basically, the child lock feature is a security feature to keep the children away from unauthorized video content.
Your best bet is to get an original replacement remote.

You may try this general step to unlock without the Remote. However, it may not work for all the models.
Please hold down the Power button on the Player until "CHILD LOCK" or the "Key symbol" disappears from the front panel display. The Player will be unlocked.

If you had set a code number - the override code should be able to resolve the issue. Please follow the below steps to enter the override code.
1. Press SYSTEM MENU to display the Setup menu.
2. Use the Number buttons to enter the 6-digit number
"210499". The previous password will be cleared.

Hope this helps you in resolving the issue.

Thank You,
Ravi Yelde
