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??

Forgot code to unlock parental lock. Everytime I watch a p-g or r rated movie it ask for the code.


The only way I know is to reinitialize the set. You do this by pressing Menu on the remote control, the pressing the number buttons 2,2,7,0 in sequence. using the remote, press the adjust button to hi lite INITIAL, then press enter on the remote. this should put it back to out of the box settings and clearing the parental lock code.
If you have kids, I recommend they do not watch you do this.
Good Luck,

Fpa lock on how do i get this offf


hello Lock/Unlock Parental Controls
Selecting this option lets you lock and unlock parental controls settings
using a password.
If you do not lock parental controls, none of the settings for V-Chip,
Channel Block, or Front Panel Block will take effect.
If you forget your password, press the MENU button, then select Parental
Control
(the password entry screen appears). Simultaneously press and
hold CH+ and VOL+ on the front panel for 8 seconds. Parental Controls
unlock and the Parental Control menu appears. You can enter a new
password by locking the Parental Controls again.
Front Panel Block
Selecting this option lets you block (disable) or unblock (enable) the TV’s
front panel. The remote still tunes to any channel. When using this as a
Parental Control method, remove access to any remote that is capable of
operating the television while you have the front panel blocked.
Don’t forget to lock parental controls after you change the status. If you
don’t, the front panel block will not take effect .if this don't work get back to me i've got manual good luck

Hi!

To unlock your set requires two steps: the first is to get past the lock screen.To do that, press the QV( or previous channel?) and 9 buttons at the same time when you are asked to enter your lock code.
Now that you're past the lock screen, find the menu that covers locking and unlocking. QV/9 (previous channel/9) is a one-time bypass; if you turn the set off, it'll be locked again when you turn it on, so you first need to LOCK it again, with a pass code you can remember (try 1,1,1,1). Once you lock it, you can exit from all the menus, then try to change inputs. It'll ask for a pass code, which you now know!

Please ask for further clarifications and rate the solution as Fixya if found useful.

Thanks

Insignia remote code access


I own a One-for-All universal remote, and my booklet says the setup code for a Insignia TV ( without a built-in DVD or VCR) is 1204. I can not guarantee that this number will work with your remote, but it is worth a try.
