Parental lock triggered on previously owned television, need to remove it

Recently acquired a used television: Insignia IS-TVCA102212 with the remote RC-A27-0A. Another of my remotes fell on the remote for the television and locked it. It now has a blue screen with a little red "lock" icon on the upper left corner. The only button to work on the remote is the DISPLAY button, just to tell me it's on DVD.

I think there may have been a parental lock put on it by the previous owners that was inadvertently triggered. I would like to find the manual for this television, find a way to remove this lock, and other features I'm not yet familiar with.

HELP??

Apex tv locked


Apex TVs have parental locks that allow you to block certain programs based on
their rating. When this feature is no longer needed and you want your TV to display all programming no matter its rating, you must unlock your TV. Unlocking your Apex TV is done completely from your remote control and does not require any tools. The process takes less than 5 minutes.
• Press the "Menu" button on the remote control and use the arrow buttons to scroll down to the "Parental Guide" option, then press the "Enter" button.
Type in the default parental code "6688" if you have not set your own code. If you have set your own code, type it in. If you set your own code and forgot it, override it by using "6688."
Use the arrow keys to switch the parental lock to "OFF." This allows all programs to be viewed no matter the rating. Press the "Exit" button on the remote and start watching all your channels.

Recently purchased a rca tv model F35317, parental code from previous owener locked need to bypass


If you forget your password, press and hold TV on the remote and the
MENU button on the television

simultaneously for 3 seconds. Parental
controls will then unlock and you can re-enter a password via Lock
Parental Controls.

Make sure you aim the remote at the TVs sensor while you press the TV button, and hold the menu button in on the front of the television.
Hope this helps you out. Thanks
