Question about Apex Digital PF3230 32" TV
My 15 year old stepson went online and found some code that he punched into the TV I think with the remote - now the TV will not receive cable signals - he wont tell me the website or the code he put in - I cannot find anything to fix it - any ideas? I tried unplugging for a long time I tired the function/mute option I found on this site, but it is not locked. Nothing seems to work
Initially, I would venture that the Parental Lock has been engaged and was set to the lowest level meaning the TV will not allow any channel to be displayed, they are all blocked.
To remove the parental lock, proceed to the Main Menu display, press on LEFT or RIGHT arrow key till Parental Guide Setting is highlighted. Before you can access, an entry code is required. The factory default is 1225 (that is if it has not been changed). Upon gaining entry, press on UP or DOWN and/or LEFT or RIGHT arrow keys to turn any entry in the MPAA-Rating and/or the TV-Rating to show U (unblock). Additionally, it may also be necessary to turn the RATE SETTING to OFF. Exit.
To my knowledge Parental Lock is not disengaged by full hard reset or unplugging from mains.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
