Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Our TV set has been locked up---purely by accident. We think we pushed the wrong button by mistake. Then we thought it might be the remote control, but the TV doesn't work manually now, anyway. When we turn it on the screen is a pretty blue color, and there is a red padlock in the lower left hand corner. Can you tell us how to unlock the TV so that it will function again? We would appreciate that very much.

What is wrong with my samsung tv


Try pushing the source button on your remote after the red light stops flashing, Keep pushing the source button until it is on "TV". You may have set the remote to one of the aux settings by accident. My dogs do it to me all the time. Good luck.

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 .

RCA Truflat TV 27F522T is completely locked both manually and remote do not work. Was working manually but after checking menu for block accidently FPA locked not can't turn on tv at all.


You must have its remote control to unlock this TV. Try to make your remote control get repaired, and check these.
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.
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.

Toshiba 40rv52u remote control


If just using one remote to try have it tested----many digital cameras in a dim light will react with a flash on the display screen when remote is pointed at them and buttons pressed.

Also try putting remote against remote receiver lens on front of set--if it reacts close up---the remote receiver in the set is bad---can be same if no reaction at all.

Either the remote or the receiver---one or the other.

A last thought here is some sets (read owner manual) have a feature to lock out the remote which can be engaged by accident.

You will for sure need to borrow a remote from someone to do this. But I will give you the way to unlockit just in case you can get one. Philips sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The override code for Philip sets is 0711, although it may say "Incorrect code" the first time to trick you. If "Incorrect code" is displayed, simply enter 0711 again. To use it hit the MENU key to get to the menus. Go up or down until you reach AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK, depending on the model, and push the "right arrow" key on the remote. Enter the override code, and enter it a second time if it says it is incorrect. Once in the AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK menu, go to BLOCK, and push the "right arrow" key. Go to BLOCKING OPTIONS and press the "right arrow" key. Go to MASTER DISABLE and press the "right arrow" key so that it says "MASTER DISABLE ON". The v-chip is now reset. Good Luck

Problem with our TV - Sharp VT-G14


Try pressing and HOLDING the button on the remote for a few seconds. This button is a sort of "kid-proof" lock, to prevent curious fingers from playing with the TV.

samsung pn64f8500 boot loop with evoulution kit 3000za installed I had perfectly working Samsung plasma ph64f8500 working fine with Samsung evolution kit 3000 ZA installed. Then we moved I took off the evolution kits so the movers would not knock them off. I powered up without the evolution kit installed accidently. Now both plasma are stuck in boot loop. They power up but go to the smart tv logo and cannot find the evolution kit. I read somewhere a long time ago that I needed to reset the evolution kit to a state where it had not been installed. The current issue is the Main Logic Board eeprom instructs the unit to boot correctly but it cannot find the evolution kit. If you boot without the evolution kit the system halts and indicates on the screen the evolution kit has been uninstalled and you must install it if you wish to view. If it could find the evolution kit one could go thru the menu to uninstall it correctly. One option is to manually reset the eeprom to remove the install instruction that boots looking for the evolution kit. I have been looking for the eeprom on the Samsung main logic board but I cannot download the logic board schematic. I cannot find the logic board number. The main logic board is BN94-0625C. The logic board has tow other part number references.• MFR Part Number 1: Samsung BN94-06205C • Board Number(s): BN41-01998A, BN97-06633G i have been researching the logic board IC Numbers and belive that IC 1701 is the eeprom that requires reset. The youtube videos for similar models indicate a eeprom that is listed as a part nmber for this samsung pn64f8500 unit as 24C512 and shows how to jumber 2 IC locations that will force the eeprom to reset to standard starup without the Evoution Kit 3000
