Question about Televison & Video
I DO NOT have a remote control
Stuck in Child LOCK
Comment by jojo3949, posted on Mar 29, 2008 first of all, i do not have a remote.
my Go Vid was working fine, until i pressed the "set up" button on the machine
unfortunately, before EXITING the "SET UP" mode I ENTER the
"Parental Control Lock" mode.
Now only the time comes on but I CANNOT turn the POWER on.
NO response with buttons.
The only other thing I can think of is to unplug the machine for 5 minutes and see if the machine defaults to the factory settings...accordianman

Tips for a great answer:
You've accidentally switched the Child Lock feature ON.
To de-activate the Child Lock on most GoVideo DVD/VCR players, press and hold the POWER button on the GoVideo remote control for about 10 seconds. The SAFE message should disappear and you should be able to use the player again.
(To activate the Child Lock again, press and hold the POWER button for about 10 seconds)
I can't be 100% certain this will work for you as you didn't include the model number of your player. If you need further assistance, or you don't have the original GoVideo remote, please reply to me with the model number of your player.
Hope this helps.
