I have the Philishave Smart Touch-XL Sudenly a key and a lock have appeared and I can not use my razor machine Pls. help me

Just for future reference, I have a Smart Touch XL and the key and lock symbols in the display seem to be some sort of child lock - you can get them to become active by pressing and holding the power button. There is also a way to instigate a demo mode from here where the display will cycle through as though the shaver is charging and the shaver will switch itself on and off in a cycle for in store continuous demonstration purposes (it does not have to be powered). To recover from locked mode it is simply a matter of pressing and holding the power switch for a couple of seconds and the shaver will turn on and the key and lock symbols disappear.

I have a Scanner I purchased from Radio shack and My niece played with it and locked every channel out and I cant get anything on it it doesnt say what kind it is but the code on the back of it is c101153...

It's impossible to give you a definite answer without knowing the make and model of your scanner, but if your display is showing a key or a lock, look for a key that has a symbol that looks like a key or a lock. With the scanner ON, press and hold that key until the display symbol clears. I hope this helps.

Look at the keyboard and find the button the shows the symbol for a key and a symbol for a light bulb. Press the FUNC button and then the key indicated above. The words key unlocked should appear in the display. Repeat the process to lock the keys again.

Won't start, key symbol in display panel

Power on, press the start button for 5 or 6 seconds, the sign will go off. Try the door gently. Means the machine is locked, for children. I think if you do it again it locks.
