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 ?

    more info please

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

I have the child lock on and the remote control is broken. How can I turn the tv on without the remote control


The power button on the TV doesn't work because of the child lock?
I went over the copy of your manual for your TV. It must be the child lock timer problem.
I would try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 mins and see if that reset the TV and releases the lock.
If it doesn't work, the remote needs to be replaced. A universal remotes aren't really universal when you need to use special buttons. The remote made for the TV is the best.
If your TV is the model 47PFL7403D, here's the cheapest place to buy a replacement.
