I don't have a remote for my Hitachi TV and it's child lock. how can I unlock?

Wow , yes I hate that .ummmm
get the make and model Number and I would get serial number just in case . Go to wal mart and get a universal remote about 8-10$ . It should override on in set up , then you can change the lock or code . Be sure to be thorough, when getting the right remote . There are hundreds , thousand , numbers that are used in determining the right one for your TV. . Since it is a universal remote it Mayakovsky affect other TV s as well but doubtful

Parental control code had been changed, don't know what it is now

Try the following to unlock your Jensen TV.

1. Turn on the TV using the remote control. In most cases, you will need the original Jensen remote to unlock the TV if you aren't sure of the unlock code. You can purchase an original replacement online if necessary.

2. Look at the screen. If you see a red key on the bottom of the screen, press "Function" and "Mute" on the remote at the same time. This will unlock the channel. Do this if you want to bypass the lock to watch a certain show or channel while leaving the TV locked. All other channels will remain locked and the TV will lock again when it is turned off.

3. Unlock all of the channels on the TV by entering 0711 or 3308. These are the Jensen factory reset codes that will reset the TV to the original factory settings. By doing this, you will loose any information that you have stored in the TV, such as channel labels and schedules. You will have to program the TV again by going through the entire initial set up.

4. Call the technical support service number in your owner's manual if neither of those codes work. A technician can help you troubleshoot the television as the problem may not be the parental lock feature. Have the model number and serial number of the TV available when you call.
5. Take your television to a TV repair shop if neither of the codes work and the TV locked by itself while it was turned on. In this case, the TV may need to be rewired.

Using the remote control hand unit that came with the TV turn on TV. Then go to the set up menu. Locate the entry for Front Panel Lock (FPL) and select no. Once you have done that exit the set up menu then on the same remote push the "input" button while watching the screen.

I have a Warfedale tv (do not know the model) and the child lock is on and I do not have a remote. How can I unlock the tv without the remote?

Never heard of that brand!

You need to look at it real good- find the manufacturers label which will have the model and serial number. Copy the information and go to any good electronics store and find a universal remote for that set. Configure the remote and find the child lock menu and turn the lock off. If it requires a password and you do not have that either, you will have to perform a "reset to factory defaults" from the menu.

TV's will not usually allow access to the child lock controls without a remote.

Its a rca tv model # 20v500t serial # f075e5e61 i accidently set the fra lock or something like that in the menu screen and cant turn the tv back on and dont have the remote


Most RCA and GE TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset is different depending on the model. Try each number until you find the one that works for you.

  1. Hold down the MENU button on the remote and VOLUME DOWN button on the TV it's self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  2. Hold down the 0 (zero) button on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN button on the TV itself at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  3. Hold down the MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. 4- Hold down GO BACK button on the remote and MENU button on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
  4. Hold down EJECT button on the front of the TV and the MENU button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. Depending on the model, one of the methods should unlock the V-chip. Now, if desired, you can change the settings on the V-chip by going to the MENU and going to PARENTAL CONTROLS, or on some sets, going to MENU and then going to TV SETUP, then to V-CHIP SET.

I have a Sony Bravia TV and the screen seems to be locked on AV1 I can here the cable channel but can't see the picture. Is there any way for me to unlock the setting so I can see the picture?

Please try this:
With your remote set on AV1, push the input button and try to change the input using the up and down arrows. You want to set it on cable or whatever your TV input normally says. I have Satellite TV and mine says satellite. You should be able to easily change it with the input button. If you can't do it, change the setting on your remote to TV and then try the same procedure. The Sony Bravia has manual controls on top of the set as well. If you are unable to change your input using the remote, try the manual controls, however, your remote does need to be reset for the correct setting as well. Using the manual controls will just help you check to see if there is actually a problem with your TV. Is this a new TV, new problem?Have you changed batteries in your remote recently?

I hope this helps you. If not get back to me, and let me know.
Thank you for using FixYa.

TIVO DVR : Won't Change Channels

Set up your infrared blasters connected from your IR port on the Tivo and by placing the two lead lights in front of your cable box so it (the cable box) can read the signal.  Then go to Channel settings accessed through Tivo Central and follow the questions. It will ask you to change channels until the remote is working correctly.  This all worked on a different "input" on my Mitsubishi TV (it has multiple inputs.  I have the cable input on a different "input" to make it work.  Hope this helps.  Call TIVO tech assistance because they are the ones who talked me through this.
