Child Lock - without remote....

I was babysitting and somehow the kids managed to turn on the child lock, yet we haven't had a working remote for a long time, and they didn't even have the remote. Is there a way to turn on this function without the remote, and if so, how do I get it off? All I have is a black screen and it won't let me do anything!

    No there is no sound at all. It is just a black screen. Any time you try to press the button to change the channel, volume, or anything, red letters that say "child lock" appear.

    do you have sound?

    is there picture around the outside of a black box?

    did you check to see if it is on a blank input?

    how is it hooked up to the sources you have ?

Press and fold the F key then press mute via the remote is the only way stated in the manual. try the remote you have make sure there is fresh batteries in it and the switch on the side is set to TV

My aiko tv model A3410 is on child lock and i have no remote. How do i get to child lock off?


Unfortunately, you can't disable the child lock (front panel lock) without a working remote for the TV. If you can find a universal remote that will match the Menu function of the TV, then press menu and find the child lock option. Then press Volume + or Volume - to toggle it to off.

I wish that I had better news for you. The manual for the A3410 is available here: http://ernie.awa.com.au/ArticleDocuments/1061/AIKO%20A3410%20Instruction%20manual.pdf.aspx . You will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the manual.

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.
