    Child Lock allows you to lock the buttons on the

    front of the TV.

    1 Press MENU
    to show the on-screen

    menu.

    2 Press VOL+ or VOL- repeatedly
    until

    SET
    is highlighted.

    3 Press CH+ or CH-
    to highlight CHILD

    LOCK.

    4 Press VOL+ or VOL-
    to choose ON or

    OFF.

    Choose ON to disable all the buttons on

    the front of the TV. CHILD LOCK ON

    will appear briefly on the TV screen each

    time you press a button on the front of

    the TV.

    You can still operate the TV with the

    remote control.You can still use the

    POWER button on the front of the TV,

    but only to turn off the TV (not on).

    Set CHILD LOCK to OFF to cancel this

    feature so you can use the buttons on

    the front of the TV again.

    5 Press TV/AV/EXIT
    to remove the

    menu from the screen.





    In other words you need the remote.

Our old model Prima tv won't turn on after i accidentally pressed the child lock please help me


Do you have the remote control for this TV? If so, you should be able to access the menu to disable the child lock. If you don't have the original remote, you may be able to use a universal remote to access the TV's menu.

How to get child lock off of my daughters TV I forgot the code help!


The procedure to unlock the child lock to TVs will differ brand to brand. The general procedure to most TVs are:
Locate the manual for your television. Though slightly embarrassing, accidentally turning on the child lock to a TV is a common problem. The section In the manual about how to set the child lock feature will also explain how to unlock it.
Try a few "universal methods" for unlocking the child lock. Some televisions have a universal code built in for disabling the child lock --no matter what your code is. A common code is "0000."
Unplug your television for a few minutes. The internal battery of the TV is what helps remember what your code. If the TV is unplugged for an extended period of time, it clears the internal memory, which in turn will reset your child lock code.
Check this. If you wish to get more details about unlock a TV, check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Unlock procedure to many popular brand TVs are given in detail.

The child lock is on my tv hitachi older model. i have no remote and the tv is turned off.. how do i get it back on to remove the lock???


The child lock on a TV can be a wonderful thing. A parent sometimes cannot be present for the duration of a kids' show, so the child lock ensures they can't watch programs that are off limits. The lock can, however, cause unwanted trouble--if it gets accidentally turned on and you don't know the code, you can find yourself unable to fully enjoy the full range of available television stations. Follow a few easy steps you'll be back to watching regular TV in no time.

Instructions


Locate the manual for your television. Though slightly embarrassing, accidentally turning on the child lock to a TV is a common problem. The section In the manual about how to set the child lock feature will also explain how to unlock it.

Try a few "universal methods" for unlocking the child lock. Some televisions have a universal code built in for disabling the child lock --no matter what your code is. A common code is "0000."

Unplug your television for a few minutes. The internal battery of the TV is what helps remember what your code. If the TV is unplugged for an extended period of time, it clears the internal memory, which in turn will reset your child lock code.

Want to reset the v-chip on my 2001orion tv model # 1933


Omni TVs have a child lock that allows parents to prevent children from watching specific channels or television shows with certain ratings. To activate or deactivate the controls, you need the four digit pass code. If you forget the pass code or if the lock gets set accidentally, you can still unlock the TV.
• Use the original Omni remote control to turn on the TV. You need the original remote to bypass the child lock. A universal remote won't work.
Check the screen. If you see a blank screen with a red key on it, press the "Function" and "Mute" buttons at the same time. This unlocks only the channel that is on the TV. All the other channels will remain locked and the TV will lock again when it is turned off.

• Unlock all of the channels on the TV by entering "6688," which is the factory reset code. This code resets the TV to original factory settings. Once this is done, you will have to go through the initial setup.

• Call Omni technical support at (416) 260-0047. A technician can help you troubleshoot the television as the problem may not be the child lock. You'll need to know the model number and serial number of the TV.
•Take your television to a TV repair shop if you are still unable to unlock the TV. The problem may be with the wiring, so the repairman may have to rewire the TV

Child lock on, TV off, No remote or manual=cannot turn TV back on


i found out on line in the owners manual that if u still have a remote control that came with the tv, u press the tv/av button and enter button at the same time to disable the child lock. New problem: u can't do it with a universal remote, even if its programmed to a magnavox tv. I called the 800 # to buy a remote control and the rep told me that it cost $50, not including the shipping and handling. so my husband put the tv in the car, brought an extension cord and took it to a local tv repairman who was kind enough to use his remote to remove the child lock for us. finally someone who is helpful for free. thanks to all the nice people out there!

Child Lock issue


Unfortunately the Child Lock facility disables the buttons on the TV.

You should be able to get a replacement remote control from an authorised Philips dealer, or you could try a universal remote control form most electrical retailers. Philips make a range of universal remote controls.

Instructions for activating and de-activating the child lock are in the manual. If you don't have the manual, download it here:
