27" MAGNAVOX W/ CHILD LOCK ON- NO REMOTE!

I have a 27" magnavox tv and the original remote is broken. Recently hit child lock on mistake through the tv buttons. Now cannot turn TV on. Tried to buy a universal remote but unable to get TV to respond. I have tried it on other TV's in the house with the power off and had no problems. Also opened up the tv to see if there was a reset switch inside but again no such luck. Is there any way to remove child lock so I'm able to use my tv again? Not much help out there for this problem. Any suggestions would be helpful! I have the same problem, Icannot turn my TV on because I lost the remote

Hi,

Did you try disconnecting the TV overnight to reset it?

Child lock


you will need your original remote control and go through the menu to unlock it. find your original remote control by typing in your TV model number in the search on www.replacementremotes.com and your original remote will pop right up. very easy to use.

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:
