Usually the code on new tv's is 0000 (sometimes 3 zeros) or 1111. I did the same thing on my Hitachi 42in plasma and locked the parental control by accident. Give that a try and let us know if it works. If that fails, look up the customer service number online to your particular make of tv and ask them. Good luck.

It sounds that the connection between t'Con board to panel have some problems; loose contact etc. Check it. Re-seat them once, and check. If you wish to get more details about faults to Philips PFL series flat panel TVs, check this link.

Unlock keypads to a Soyo SYXRT4791AB 47 In. LCD TV

Not a solution but a suggestion, the 43 page user manual if you have it or can find it (I looked and saw only a reference to it being 43 pages) will almost certainly have the information on how to unlock the keyboard, find that and you should be able to unlock it.

Hi! Somehow got `Key Locked`on my 42LCD LG TV screen. Can not use remote anymore even to turn it off..Can not find manual to read what should I do in this situation. Could you help? Thanks!

From owner manual:

• If Lock is already set, enter the password as requested.
• The TV is set up with the initial password "0-0-0-0".

• If you ever forget your password,

key in '7', '7', '7', '7' on

the remote control. Then, the

password reset to '7', '7', '7',

You should download the user manual:

We have a goodmans gtv14t5dvd without a remote control or instruction manual. my children have somehow managed to put the child lock on and now i cannot do anything with the tv as it just says child lock...

If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers for spare part supplies as required.

That may help

Just Google the manufacturer's name and follow the links. Make certain you are directed to the manufacturer's web site as some search engines direct you to other sites and they charge for the information that is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

Is your tv a plasma tv or an lcd tv? When you say shadow, do yo mean a band across or down the screen, or is it a patchy shadow?

Connect directly to Pioneer PDP-4350PU screen from Laptop

Have you tried to lower you laptop's screen resolution to 800x600?
Have you tried one of these:
1. You need to manually enable video on tv by pressing two buttons on your laptop keyboard. The first is "Fn" (at the left bottom). The second depends on your laptop manufacturer. Look at the function keys. F1....F12 for the LCD/CRT or the corresponding sign. Press and hold Fn and press second button. Sometimes you need to press second button several times. This means you need to cycle through all available options to enable Laptop's screen and TV screen at the same time (clone).
2. Intel Extreme Graphics video cards sometimes doesn't support a procedure described above. You need to find intel video card options manager running at the sys-tray (right bottom of your screen near the clock). Right click on it. Select Graphic Options -> Output to -> Laptop + ... clone (or something similar)
Note that not all video cards are capable of showing the movie on media player at the same time. You need to choose then,- Laptop or TV

Child Lock on Insignia TV

I CAN HELP! After my having my Insignia NS-20LCD picture locked for over a year because no one could give me a way to unlock it, a co-worker found the secret!!

When facing the back of the TV, there is another on/off switch on the back on the right side just under the curve (very difficult to see). I didn't even know it was there.

Once you locate, turn the set on using that switch while you hold in the "menu" button on the right side (when facing the front) of the TV. This will reset the television and unlock the screen!
