I sat on my remote for my Centrex TV and got the lock on the screen. I have an original remote. I found this page and solved the problem. But on my remote there was a button with a square or what looks like a TV screen with a plus sign (+) in the top right hand corner of the square. The button is locate as the bottom button on the right hand side of the remote. I just held this buton down for a few seconds until the TV came back on.

Hello When an Insignia TV is locked, it keeps you from watching all of your channels by only displaying a black screen. Insignia TVs are locked from a single button command on the remote control, so it is easy for you to lock the TV by accident. Since Insignia TVs can be locked so easily, it's important to know how to undo this command and unlock the TV yourself. So, unlock your Insignia TV with the push of a button and once again enjoy watching your favorite programs. ·Find the lock button on the Insignia remote control. The lock button is located on the third column from the left on the second row from the top of the remote.
·Stand within operating range of the Insignia TV, then aim the remote at the TV's receiver and press the "Lock" button on the remote control. · Aim the remote at the TV and press the channel buttons to make sure the TV is unlocked. When the TV is locked, it shows a black screen and does not allow you to view anything else. If the screen remains black, press the "Lock" button again. If this doesn't work, change the batteries in the remote and start over at step OK

If you forget your password you can reset it. Make sure the TV is off. Simultaneously press and hold VOL< on the TV?s front panel and CLEAR on the remote for approximately 5 seconds. Enter a new password next time you access the PARENTAL CONTROL menu.
Front Panel Lock
1. From the PARENTAL CONTROL menu, press the up or down arrow to highlight Lock Fr. Panel.
2. Press the right or left arrow to turn on (box has check mark) or off (box doesn?t have check mark) front panel lock.
Of course if you don't have a remote that can bring up the menu I don't know how this can be done.
Try pressing the disply button and hold for three to 4 seconds. This is a quick way of locking all functions also .. Once the set is working press display and hold to relock it or to unlock it. Good Luck
