If my TV acts like it is locked but is not then what is wrong with it?


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 .

How to Unlock Your Apex TV When Screen is Locked


If you find that your Apex TV is showing a blank screen with a red key on the bottom left then the Screen Lock otherwise known as Child Lock or Parental Control has been accidentally activated and your TV will not respond to commands from the remote control.

To resolve this and reactivate the TV simply press the (function or F) button and hold down the mute button on the remote at the same time for around 10 seconds. This will unlock the screen and allow you to view the channel as desired.

If your TV asks for a 4-digit code or password please enter 3308 or 6688 to unlock the screen or to reset any preset rating levels.

This extract is taken from an Apex Manual specific to the child lock function;

The Childlock function is designed to prevent chiIdren from watching TV. To activate: HoId down the F button and then press the MUTE button until the symboI “ ” appears on the screen. The TV will enter the Childlock mode.
Except for the “ ” symbol the screen becomes blue or black . To unlock the TV hoId down the F button and then press the MUTE button again.

Please Note:
The Childlock can be set or cancelIed only by the remote controI. After setting Childlock, secure the remote control in a safe place.

If this Tip has helped please do take time to indicate this by using the rating buttons on the page below.

Many thanks for using FixYa.

If I knew the model number I could tell you where to find your manual. I'll give you a link to the website that can help find your manual at the end. If you haven't already tried here is another method that may work.
US V-Chip TV Rating Limit
The V-Chip TV Rating Limit lets you decide which TV programs can and cannot
be viewed.
To set TV programming limits:
1. Choose Parental Control from the MAIN MENU. If Parental Controls have
previously been locked, you must enter your password.
2. Highlight and select US V-Chip. Then select V-Chip TV Rating.
3. Once you get to the V-Chip TV rating limit screen, use the arrow buttons
and OK on your remote to change the status of a TV program rating or
content theme from View to Block.
4. For TV rating limits to take effect, lock Parental Controls by accessing the
Lock parental controls menu.
The following sections give you more details about how to change the status of
TV program limits.
Note: If you forget your password, follow step one above to get to the
password entry screen. Then press the VOL+ and CH+ buttons on the TV's
front panel at the same time for at least 8 seconds. You will receive an
on-screen message that Parental Controls have been unlocked once y
