Question about Hisense TA42P40M 42 in. Plasma Television
My model # TL2020 Serial# 85001130
I had this particular tv hooked to my Direct TV satelite, I was adjusting the volume with the direct tv remote and it just locked. The screen is black with a box at the lower buttom displaying the wrod LOCKED. Can you please assist/or direct me in the right direction to coorect this problem. Truly appreciated.
Try turning the main power switch on the back of the tv off.
Then hold the menu button and push that switch back on while still holding the menu button.
Keep holding the menu button until the setup menu pops up.
Next, be sure your input is set correctly(air or cable).
Next, do an auto channel search.
That did it for me. After I shut it off I had to do it one more time but it did the job. A friend of mine gave me the tv for free because nobody he new could figure it out. I took it home, got lucky, and figured it out in about ten minutes.
Hope this works for you.

It sounds like the DTV remote activated the "Lock" feature of your TV. If you are lucky enough to still have the original remote for the TV all you should need to do is push the "Lock" button to unlock the set.
Unfortuanly, if you don't have the original remote you will need to call and order a new one from the manufacture for about $25. Their number is 800-287-4871
