My apex tv is locked and we can't unlock it


Apex TVs have parental locks that allow you to block certain programs based on
their rating. When this feature is no longer needed and you want your TV to display all programming no matter its rating, you must unlock your TV. Unlocking your Apex TV is done completely from your remote control and does not require any tools. The process takes less than 5 minutes.
• Press the "Menu" button on the remote control and use the arrow buttons to scroll down to the "Parental Guide" option, then press the "Enter" button.
Type in the default parental code "6688" if you have not set your own code. If you have set your own code, type it in. If you set your own code and forgot it, override it by using "6688."
Use the arrow keys to switch the parental lock to "OFF." This allows all programs to be viewed no matter the rating. Press the "Exit" button on the remote and start watching all your channels.

It appears to be your parental control feature, or lock function. Try the codes 3001 or 1234 to reset the lock feature.
Press: Menu>Features>Parental Control(Child Lock)>Select,
then enter the code.

Cant remember parental code to unlock channel for AOV FL4L42W98H_V2_O1 ,TV


There should be an option in the main menu to return all settings to factory default. That may or may not reset the parental lock to either 0000 or 1234. Hope it helps.

Hello
As we don't know the sequence of presses that the child has done with remote buttons, just make an unlock function to its V-Chip first. You have to give an other code after unlock, and must remember that four digit code. So write it back on a piece of paper the four digit code you are going to give to the TV, so that you may not miss it later. To unlock Apex TVs do the following.
