Try unplugging the set for 4+ hours. That will cause a hard reset back to factory default settings.

Need tv code, tv is locked


Hello,

Turn on the TV and grab the remote. In most cases, you will need the original remote to unlock the TV if you aren't sure of the unlock code. If you don't have the original remote, you will need to purchase one.
2
Look at the screen. If you see a blank screen with a red key on the bottom of the screen, press 'Function' and 'Mute' at the same time. This should unlock the channel. This is an option for people who want the TV to stay locked but, want to be able to bypass the lock to watch a certain show or channel. All other channels will remain locked and the TV will fully lock when it is turned off.
3
Unlock all of the channels on the TV by entering the factory reset code. There are three main reset codes that TV manufacturers set. These are 0711, 6688 and 3308. Try each one until you find the one that works. This will reset the TV to original factory settings. When you do this, you will loose any information that you have stored in the TV, such as favorite channels, automatic timers and the clock. You will have to go through the full initial set up.
4
Call the technical support service number in your owner's manual if none of those codes work. A technician can help you troubleshoot the television because the problem may not be the locking control. When you call, make sure that you have the model number and serial number of the TV.
5
Take your television to a TV repair shop. In some cases, a professional who access to wiring diagrams for your television set may have to rewire certain components in order for the television to unlock. This is usually the case when the TV locks by itself while it is on.

Also note that forgotten the passcode of your Mitsubishi TV. You can make it alive without knowing the passcode. Please follow
V_Chip lock bypassing prodedure is as follows
You can view your locked TV, cancel the lock, or enter the V_chip lock menus.

This is done by pressing the number "9" and "QV" buttons on the remote TV control at the same time, when your passcode is requested. This process temporarily unlocks the TV.
When entering the V_Chip lock menu, this process deletes your old passcode and prompts you to enter a new passcode.


I hope this will help to solve the problem...

My sis gave me an old samsung tv. It is just for my son and his x-box. Unfortunately there is no remote control. When switched on it is saying PANEL LOCK. Is there any way i can fix this. Model No TI-14N3....


hello you could try this The front panel of the COMBI VISION can be locked to prevent it
from being used by young children for example.
1 To lock the front panel, display the television menu by pressing MENU
( ).
2 Select the SETUP option by pressing the P ▲ or ▼ buttons the required
number of times.
3 Press the + button.
4 Select the PANEL LOCK option by pressing the P ▲ or ▼ buttons the
required number of times.
5 Select ON by pressing the + button.
Result: The buttons on the front panel no longer have any effect.
6 To unlock the front panel, set the PANEL LOCK option to OFF.Another option would be to buy a universal remote from say - Argos carefully open it and use your own batteries and use that remote to unlock the TV then return the remote to Argos or if keep the remote if the original is lost. i hope it helps

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

I was playing with the menu on the tv. and i was being curious and i had ended up locking the front buttons. and we dont have the remote control to the tv no more.


RCA makes several universal remotes that are sold by a variety of stores, Target, Walmart, etc. These come with the RCA code already programmed in them. Look for one that has a "menu" function button. You should be able to access the code necessary to unlock the panel buttons.

Front panel locked and remote don't work


Are you sure there is not a problem with the TV set? The set will need to be on to unlock the front panel. Bypassing the V-Chip Lock on most Mitsubishi sets use a four-digit passcode that is required to view a V-Chip locked program, view the locked TV, cancel the lock, or enter the V-Chip lock menus. If you don't have the passcode, it is easy to bypass. This is neccessary if you forgot the code, purchased the set used, or if you simply don't feel like searching through your files to find it. To bypass the V-chip: You can view the locked shows by pressing the number 9 and QV buttons on the remote at the same time, whenever your passcode is requested. This process temporarily unlocks the TV. To reset the code: When you use the button combination 9 and QV while entering the V-Chip Lock menu, this process deletes your old passcode and prompts you to enter a new passcode. Good Luck
