Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions
Panasonic TV CT32G4 child lock code is on in always mode and factory directed reset procedures do not work. manaual and panasonic support want the tv to be taken in to a repair center. this is not economical or practical. can you help please. Thanks.
It's likely there isn't a way to reset this without hooking it up to specialized equipment. However, there is one thing you could try.
Unplug the TV, and leave it unplugged for 24 hours. That should be sufficient time for the settings to be lost. After that, plug it in, and try the factory reset again. This may or may not work, depending on what the default settings are and whether there is an internal battery backing up your settings.
Short of that, I think you're going to have to take it in to a repair center, or put up with the lock.

• Unlock all of the channels on the TV by
entering "6688," which is the factory reset code. This code resets
the TV to original factory settings. Once this is done, you will have to go
through the initial setup.
• Call Omni technical support at (416)
260-0047. A technician can help you troubleshoot the television as the problem
may not be the child lock. You'll need to know the model number and serial
number of the TV.
•Take your television to a TV repair shop if you are still unable to unlock the TV. The problem may be with the wiring, so the repairman may have to rewire the TV

Locate the manual for your television. Though slightly embarrassing, accidentally turning on the child lock to a TV is a common problem. The section In the manual about how to set the child lock feature will also explain how to unlock it.
Try a few "universal methods" for unlocking the child lock. Some televisions have a universal code built in for disabling the child lock --no matter what your code is. A common code is "0000."
Unplug your television for a few minutes. The internal battery of the TV is what helps remember what your code. If the TV is unplugged for an extended period of time, it clears the internal memory, which in turn will reset your child lock code
