You will need to consult the owners manuals of both the remote control and television. The lock out devices are usually in the television parental codes. The code is what you will need to input to unlock the television.You can reset the products to factory specifications by removing the source of power to them. This will mean taking the batteries out of the remote control and unplugging the television from the A/C power source. You will need to let the microprocessors drain off the residual power. For the remote control this will require using a button like the input button to drain the power by continuously pressing the button for about 1 minute. This may require more than one try to completely drain off the power. The television will require being unplugged from the source of A/C power for about 1 hour. This will reset the components. The instructions for doing these procedures are in the owners manuals of each product. The manuals also have the process for resetting the codes to operate the components. If you do not have copies of the products owners manuals, you can use the computer search engine browsers to find them. You must find the Brand name of each product and put in the brand name to get to the Customer support web page. Once you are on the web page for the product go to the support section and use their menu to find the pdf copies of the owners manuals. You will have to know the model number of the product to get this information. A pdf reader and writer is also needed for reading the owners manual and making a copy of the manual for your own use. I hope this information helps you with your problem with the television. Thank you for using FixYa and have a nice day!

    Jun 21, 2009 - Sorry to say the active
    web link is not working . The web address is correct but the link does
    not go to correct web site. This is the main page website address: [ ] Copy this web address
    and paste it into the address bar of your web browser and it will take
    you to the main product page. From this page choose the universal
    remote control section , enter this section and look for you model of
    remote control. Once you find your model of remote control, use the
    model number to get the service information for the product. The
    information should include a owners manual and frequently asked
    questions sections. These sections are the most helpful for
    troubleshooting problems with the operation of the remote control.
    Sorry for the incorrect link addresses, something when wrong with the
    translations of the links and they do not work. The new address is
    simpler and should work with no problems. I hope this information help
    you with your problems with the operation of the remote control.Thank
    you for using FixYa and have a nice day.
