Sorry but you're going to have to be a bit more specific than that.. What kind of Tv is it, what model number, is it the original remote, do you have an otherwise good pic and sound, do functions (vol, ch, power) on the Tv work???

    So you rate this session already with thanks for trying - a low rating which makes me look like a moron- and what for because I needed some better information to answer your question?? The answer is fairly simple so thanks for responding.

    Most locks on a mitsubishi can be removed by pressing QV and 9 together at the same time.. For those who don't have a mits the QV button on the remote is quick-view and when pressed together with the number 9 on the remote sends an unlock code to the unit.. This may only be temporary - depending on the model and to cure it you may have to go into the menu and disable the lock by turning it off.

Apex tv locked

If you have a blank screen with a red key on the bottom left, simply press the (function or F) button and the mute button at the same time.
If your TV asks for a 4-digit code or password please enter 3308 or 6688 to unlock the screen or reset any preset rating levels.
If you have a GT2011J or GT2011S Television, hold the (Display) button for 10 seconds, it will unlock the screen. If password or code is requested, try 3308 or 6688.
Let me know if this helps.
