Child lock stuck on

I have an older style magnavox television. When my 4 year old was playing with the remote he has accidently turned the child lock on & I can't get it off.
Can you help?

Hi Jo

Try pressing volume down and volume up at the same time for 8 seconds....If you start to see a demonstration of the TV's features, press both for 8 seconds again....or try pressing the menu button for 8 - 10 seconds.

If you know your model number, that would also be helpful!
Let me know!

    Here from the manual, are the instructions, thanks for providing your model number!



    Child lock

    With the child lock function, you can lock all the function

    buttons and the TV will go into standby.

    Press and hold the TV/AV button and then press the “ “

    button, the TV screen will become black, and any buttons

    on the main unit or the remote control become inoperative.

    If you want to switch on the TV, press and hold the TV/AV

    button and then press the “ “ button again, the TV will

    return to the normal TV reception.

    I just noticed that the button did not have anything in the quotes. The button referenced by "", is the OFF/ON button located on the upper left of the remote! Sorry for that, just noticed that I did not complete the contents of the quoted area.



    The manual link provided for your model will also show the same info!

    So this is how it should read:



    If you want to switch on the TV, press and hold the TV/AV
    button and then press the “OFF/ON “ button again, the TV will
    return to the normal TV reception.

I accidently put the child lock on the magnavox tv how can i get it off with a universal remote?


Depend on your remote would be easier with the remote that came with the TV. Can you acses the TVs menu with your universal? if not I don't think there's anything you can do. if yes, this how you do it:

1 Press MENU to show the on-screen menu.
2 Press VOL+ or VOL- repeatedly until SET is highlighted.
3 Press CH+ or CH- to highlight CHILD LOCK.
4 Press VOL+ or VOL- to choose ON or OFF. Choose ON to disable all the buttons on the front of the TV. CHILD LOCK ON will appear briefly on the TV screen each time you press a button on the front of the TV. You can still operate the TV with the remote control.You can still use the POWER button on the front of the TV, but only to turn off the TV (not on). Set CHILD LOCK to OFF to cancel this feature so you can use the buttons on the front of the TV again.
5 Press TV/AV/EXIT to remove the menu from the screen.
