Without knowing what specific make and model you have, all I can do is offer generic advice. Have you tried unplugging the set for a few minutes to reset it? This may clear the control panel lockout. I'd also try a universal remote contol that can access necessary features. They're pretty cheap these days.

Lost remote tv fpa lock is on tv has solid red light help


This is the method to unlock an RCA tV:
Most RCA 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.

  1. Hold down EJECT button on the front of the TV set 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 locked up my set by mistake need to unlock it and adjust channel for directv I lost my remote use the front keys which caused initial problem tried to adjust volume hit channel key


Hello

Tounlock your TV you surely need its remote control. Try to get it from somewhere, from any one of your friends, who own the similar model of TV, or buy it from RCA. After getting it try the following. You can unlock it.

Most RCA and GE TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset procedure is different depending on the model. Try each method until you find one that works:
  1. Hold down MENU on the remote and VOLUME DOWN 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 on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN buttons on the TV its self 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 on the remote and MENU on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
  5. Hold down EJECT 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.

Picture is rolling and we can't find a vert. hold adjustment. The original remote has been lost so we are using a universal remote.


there should be a control on thr rear of the tv set that does the vertical, and one for the horizontal holds. Sounds like it has been accidently knocked when doing house work!

Remote stopped.


I was able to find the MSN TV Set Up Guide Manual online. Within it was the list of codes for various brands of TVs. One of those for Toshiba TV was in bold print. I used the instructions for entering the code and used that bold printed code. The remote worked both the Toshiba TV and the MSN TV2 unit after that code was entered. Apparently the remote had lost the original code somehow.
