Child protective lockout can't be turned off

We don't know how the lockout got turned on, but now I can't watch "R" rated movies. It is asking me for a code (which I don't know) and to make matters worse, I can't find the remote. Is there any way to disable this function without the remote?

I found the remote, then tried 0000 to unlock, which didn't work. Luckily 1111 did. I figure if I hadn't found the remote, I could have bought a cheap universal one. But all is well now. I still have no idea how the parental control was implemented.

Hi,

As long as you remember the "CODE" The child lock on a TV is a wonderful thing.

The lock sometimes causes unwanted trouble--if it gets accidentally turned on and you don't know the code, you can find yourself unable to fully enjoy the full range of available television stations. Please apply the following possible 5 different solutions taht verified by different users and than hopefully you'll be back to watching regular TV ....


  1. Bring Up TV Menu ; Power on the television with the activated child lock on. Push the "Menu" button on the remote control. A series of features appears on the screen, ranging from the overall TV functions to the video display and the audio setup features ,Choose "Options" and a new menu appears on the screen. From the new menu select "Child Lock." The exact setup selection is going to vary slightly, although the child protection is always referred to as either "Child Lock" or "V-Chip." The V-chip is the actual chip built into the television that blocks out certain television programming.
  2. Try a "factory reset" action... This should be somewhere in the TV menu system. However Please note that will clear everything, so you may need to re-program every things..the channels etc.
  3. Hold the lock key in the remote for few seconds . you will get the lock tool bar . you can unlock it there
  4. Hold the display button on the remote for 10 seconds.
  5. As a The last solution which is common for all TV sets..
    • Try to find the User manual for your television. The section In the manual about how to set the child lock feature will also explain how to unlock it.
    • Try a few "universal methods" for unlocking the child lock. Some televisions have a universal code built in for disabling the child lock --no matter what your code is. A commonly used code is "0000."
    • Unplug your television for at least 1 hour . The internal memory battery of the TV is what helps remember what your code. When TV is unplugged for an extended period of time, it clears the internal memory, which in turn will reset your child lock code back to "0000 " again...
if the problem still continues you have to email to : http://www.akaiusa.com/

Hope this helps!

Parental control


NICE, and this is the reason why they sold it at the yard sale.

What you going to need is a firmware package I do nto have a link but google is your best friend what it does is basically hack the password (witch is kinda borderline TOS violation to even tell you how to do it)

I would say you got shafted because you going to spend time and possiable money for the solution. And APEX to boot is not even worth $10 bucks at a yard sale. I am not trying to hate here but tell you facts. Your solution is google sorry I cannot direct link that as its a exploit. try 4 zeros, or 4 9999 to try and defualt erase it Good luck.

please do be considerate and leave postive feedback or ratings as this is the best i can do for you.

The control locked light is on, but all other light are out. Can you tell me what the problem is? Thanks a lot. chester


Hello, have you tried pushing and holding the control lockout button for 3-5 seconds to insure it is not simply in the child lockout mode ? Try that if you haven't already and let us know the result. I'll watch for a reply and see if I/we here at "fixya" can assist you further. Good luck macmarkus :)
