Old tv remote control

My parents have an old tv set (stereo with phone incl. might be an 1984 or so but I could'nt find the model.) It still look fine,
And the remote control seems to be half dead.
Or it might be the captor on the tv set???

I tried an universal remote control, but it wont go.
I dont think it takes anything older than 1990...
I could'nt find the model anywhere on the net, but I'm still wondering if there is anything I can do

Televisions with Parental Lock Feature

OR TRY THIS..
Press and hold Menu on the TV AND volume down on the remote for 3 seconds. Nothing will appear on the screen, and the Parental Controls will unlock, and you can re-enter a new password with the LOCK PARENTAL CONTROLS

CTC169AU
Channels that have been locked can be viewed only when the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to OFF. This can only be done with the remote control-it can not be changed with the buttons on the front of the TV.

Therefore, after you turn on PARENTAL CTRL, you simply hide the remote control so that your children can not watch the locked channels. The locked-out channels will remain unviewable even if the TV is unplugged or the channels are autoprogrammed again. The only way to view locked channels is to use the supplied remote control to set the PARENTAL CTRL function to OFF.

The PARENTAL CTRL and the CHAN CTRL functions work hand-in-hand. The instructions below will first tell you how to turn parental control on or off with the PARENTAL CTRL function and then how to lock desired channels with the CHAN CTRL function.
1. Repeatedly press MENU to select SETUP MENU, and then press + or - to display setup functions. Repeatedly press MENU to select the PARENTAL CTRL function. . When this function is set to ON, PARENTAL CTRL is activated and any channels you locked with the CHAN CTRL function will not be viewable. . When this function is set to OFF, PARENTAL CTRL is deactivated and all channels are viewable.

2. To lock channels, press the MENU button to select the CHAN CTRL function. Select a channel you want to lock by pressing CHANNEL up or down. Then press +. The CHAN CTRL setting will change from NORMAL to LOCKED when that channel is locked. To return the channel to NORMAL, press the - button. Repeat step 2 for each channel you want to lock. If the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to ON while you are locking out channels, each channel will go blank as you lock it. When the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to ON and a channel which has been locked out is tuned, the TV will display the words PARENTAL CONTROL to let your kids know you have locked it.

CTC185's
If the front panel function buttons don't work, (menu, ch up/dn etc.) but the functions work normal with the remote, enter the "Channel" menu with the remote and turn "Parental Control" off.

CTC203's
In the event you have forgotten your password, perform the following procedure:
Press and hold for 3 seconds the TV button on the remote while pressing the menu button on the TV.
This procedure will turn off the parental lock and erase the previous password .

Another Possibility To Try For Various Models: If TV's in the Parental mode and askes for a password that's forgotten, Press menu on the TV, select Parental Lock #4 on menu, then with the remote press Mute, Display, Clear, and Reset buttons in sequence.

TX808 Chassis
If Parental Controls have been set and you don't know the password, do this:
Press and hold the volume down and the channel up buttons at the same time for 5 seconds.
Now you can reset the password to 0000, and using that password you can now access the V-Chip menus.

TV's (Made by Daewoo or possibly Apex, ie. GE model 24GP653)
The factory default pass code of 6688 is also the override code, in case the owner forgets their pass code. If that doesn't work, another place in the owners manual says to push Function and Mute on the remote at the same time. Function is the top right button.

Need to know how to remove the red key on tv and code


When a red key appears in the lower left corner of your Apex television screen, the set's V-chip is engaged, preventing you from watching restricted content. You can override parental controls and reset your television's pass code with your remote.
Parental Lock
  1. The Apex prompts you to enter a 4-digit code when you set up parental controls. You can block programs according to their MPAA ratings or their content designations, such as V for violence or S for ****** situations.
Disabling the Lock
  1. You can override parental controls on most Apex models by simultaneously pressing the F and mute buttons on the remote control. If you own Apex models GT2011J or GT2011S, hold the remote's display button for ten seconds. The red key will vanish and the V-chip will unblock your program.
Override Codes Apex's default parental lock control code is 6688, so if you haven't set a new code, entering 6688 will remove the red key and unblock your program. If you've set a new password and forgotten it, entering 3308 will reset the code and unblock your program.

I forgot the password for unlock the parental control


Most RCA and GE TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset procedure is different depending on the model. Try each method until you find one that works:

Hold down MENU on the remote and VOLUME DOWN 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

Hold down the 0 on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN buttons on the TV its self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked

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.
Hold down GO BACK on the remote and MENU on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.

Hold down EJECT on the front of the TV 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.

Parental control code


ok first go to the DVD setup which should be located near the bottom of the remote is says SETUP. Then it will give you a list of options go to the one with the parental code one. Then you should try and change the password. My tvs old password was 8888 but I am not sure if it is the same on all tv's. If it is right then you should be able to change the password to whatever you want! I hope this helps anyone who sees this response!
