SOURCE: 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

I have a rca profection tv. When you turn it on it turns back off by itself


Thats way I solved my problem.

Mitsubishi (and other makes) has had problems with the front panel push buttons partially shorting. This can cause a variety of odd and erratic operating problems, and a completely dead set has been documented as one of them.
The reason the remote doesn't work is because the partially shorted front pushbuttons are telling the TV's micro computer that there is a command being issued by the front panel, and that makes the TV ignore the remote control.
The fix is to replace all of the front panel push buttons. One quick and dirty way to get around this is to simply unplug the wiring harness to the front panel push buttons, hence disabling them, and just using the remote control.
Just pull off the speaker grill from the front. You will see a small access panel on the front with wires coming from the front buttons running inside. Those are the wires you'll want to disconnect.
Take that panel off, and follow those wires. You'll have to undo a couple of plastic cable clamps, but halfway down the wires you'll find two connectors. They have lock tabs that you have to push to separate them, but they should pull apart without too much trouble. One connector is actually the front panel input jacks, the other is the buttons, but you can unplug both of them.
Then cross your fingers and try the remote.
Let me know how that goes!

Hi there, if you know what model it is you can do a google search for the owners manual. There should be a sequence of buttons you can push or hold to reset to factory/default settings.

Mitsubishi wd62526 tv has a passcode on it that i dont know ;so is there a way to change it or reset it


Bypassing the V-Chip Lock After you set the lock, you need your passcode to view a V-Chip locked program, view the locked TV, cancel the lock, or enter the V-Chip Lock menus. If you forget your passcode, you can view the locked TV without entering your passcode. This is done by pressing the number 9 and QV buttons on the TV remote 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. Press HOME to exit the menu.

Bypassing Front Button Lock If you have misplaced the remote control, you can bypass the front button lock by pressing and holding the MENU button on the front panel for more than 8 seconds

My remote no longer works with my tv. I think its the ir sensor but I don't know what it looks like to replace it. I have another tv of the same model for parts and need to know what the ir sensor...


You can confirm your remote's IR output by pointing to the phone camera and if the remote works it will be seen as a flash on the camera. Now after confirming the remote then the the IR detector on teh TV can be checked. It is always mounted on the FRONT panel and is a small DIODE mounted to face the IR panel ****. It is easily seen and can be checked using a multimeter . In the Ohmn's range in one direction a flash of light will increase the flow and continuity when the probes are held across the diode. If teh IR is good then it is a fault on the processor controller.

Tv has worked for ever with the remote now remote has failed and the on off swutch doesnt work to turn it on and off How can I program another remote if I can turn it on?


First, check to make sure the front keyboard is not locked out. Press and hold the menu key for 10 seconds then release. If it was locked out, then front panel buttons should work. If no change, you likely have a problem with one of the ten contact switches on that panel. Remove the front speaker grill by pulling it off, then trace the wires from the front control panel (you may need to remove the cover off the front of TV). Unplug the wires to the front panel and try by Remote control. If the remote works, you can purchase ten tact switches and install or just leave the wires unplugged and use it like that.

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

Remote sensor in the TV


First Inspect the remote batteries. also make sure TV is not on a LOCK ON option... now, the sensor is a small smoothly part near the TV front buttons, you can clean it carefully FYI, exposing unit remote sensor to direct fluorescent or outdoor light may cause signal interference.
