You might want to try the same solution for the V-Chip (this might be the same thing as the child lock, it is worth a try) protection to see if this will help:

Changing V-Chip Settings for MV13L3, TV/VCR Combo 2001.

-Unplug your tv for 1 minute.
-Plug your tv in and turn it on.
-hold the volume down button on the tv at the same time you hold the "0" button down on the remote. This will bring up the "Set V-Chip" blue screen.
-Enter "0000" for the password and hit enter. Enter "0000" to confirm the password and hit enter.
-This will bring up the V-Chip set page. From this page you can: Turn Off the V-Chip, Change the Limits for viewing, etc.
-If you turn off the V-Chip setting, you will not have to deal with this problem again.

My aiko tv model A3410 is on child lock and i have no remote. How do i get to child lock off?


Unfortunately, you can't disable the child lock (front panel lock) without a working remote for the TV. If you can find a universal remote that will match the Menu function of the TV, then press menu and find the child lock option. Then press Volume + or Volume - to toggle it to off.

I wish that I had better news for you. The manual for the A3410 is available here: http://ernie.awa.com.au/ArticleDocuments/1061/AIKO%20A3410%20Instruction%20manual.pdf.aspx . You will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the manual.

Child lock stuck on


Hi Jo

Try pressing volume down and volume up at the same time for 8 seconds....If you start to see a demonstration of the TV's features, press both for 8 seconds again....or try pressing the menu button for 8 - 10 seconds.

If you know your model number, that would also be helpful!
Let me know!

How do I unlock my Toshiba SE-RO301 to play american DVDs?


HI MARTYN,
Toshiba allow cheapo makes to use their brand name sometimes.

So if the player is not a genuine Toshiba then there is likely to be a remote hack on the net some where.

If it is a genuine Toshiba then there wont be a remote hack and you will need somebody like DVD Chips to send you a £20 remote that will hack it.

However - many Toshiba machines will not play NTSC discs at all when first set up.

Check out the Video setup menu and you will see a PAL/NTSC/AUTO option.

Tosh's I've seen are preset to PAL but unlike other players the Tosh will spit out any NTSC discs you try to play- set it to AUTO

Check that setting first just in case that is the only thing stopping it

Here's a Tosh hack to try


1. Press the Open button on your remote control to open the drive tray
2. Press the 2 button on your remote control
3. Press the 4 button on your remote control
4. Press the 0 button on your remote control
5. Press the 3 button on your remote control
6. Press the 9 button on your remote control
7. Press the 6 button on your remote control
8. Press the 0 button on your remote control
9. Press the Enter button on your remote control to change the region to 1 for region 1, 2 for region 2, and so on, or 9 for multi-region playback
10. Press the Open button on your remote control to close the drive tray
11. Power off the DVD player
12. Power on the DVD player

If the hack does work make sure the PAL/NTSC setting is on AUTO because R1 disc might still not play

Turn off child lock


To unlock the Panel Lock, Parent Lock, or Child Lock, follow these steps:
  1. Turn on your TV.
  2. On the remote, press the Menu button. The Set-Up Menu appears.
  3. Scroll to the Key Lock function and set function to Off.
  4. Press the Exit button to exit.
Note: If you don't have a remote, you may be able to do the same thing by pressing the Menu button on the front or side panel of your TV and using the volume or channel up and down buttons on the TV to scroll to the Key Lock function and set it to Off.

I HAVE THE SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM.

Confirmed with Samsung tech support. Problem is with remote. to fix, simple take the batteries out of the remote. Press and hold the UP Volume button for 2 Mintues (no cheating, it has to be at least 2 minutes), this Reset's the Remote Control. Put the batteries back in. Bob's your uncle. all fixed.
