Re: locked centrex television

Found the manual!!! There is a button on the remote that has a symbol the shape of a rectangle with a + inside it. Hold the button down for more than 4 minutes.

Re: locked centrex television

I did research online and no luck. It seems that that company is no longer in buisness. I would think if you have the original owners manual there should be instructions to unlock the TV or maybe a phone number to call for support. I know that is the case with most brands sold here in the states. Good luck.

Child lock on, TV off, No remote or manual=cannot turn TV back on

i found out on line in the owners manual that if u still have a remote control that came with the tv, u press the tv/av button and enter button at the same time to disable the child lock. New problem: u can't do it with a universal remote, even if its programmed to a magnavox tv. I called the 800 # to buy a remote control and the rep told me that it cost $50, not including the shipping and handling. so my husband put the tv in the car, brought an extension cord and took it to a local tv repairman who was kind enough to use his remote to remove the child lock for us. finally someone who is helpful for free. thanks to all the nice people out there!

TV locked on channel 3 and have no remote

Thats EXACTLY what happened to our tv!

Ours was originally locked on channel 4 but I left it unplugged overnight and now its oddly stuck on channel 3.

The only thing I can think of to do is try to search for/buy a remote that will work on the tv to bring the menu up again. I don't know how to manually reset it or do anything.

Hi please help me

Hi chooky

The set is in childlock mode, and will need to be deactivated. Try pressing the + key in the right bottom corner of the remote for at least 5 seconds. See how you go, and please post me back if it didnt work and I will keep looking for a solution for you.

A FixYa rating would be great if it fixes it.:)
