Parental Lock On

My son-in-law gave me his TV and the Parental Lock is on. He claims to never have set it. Any ideas on how to override it? I have the manual and it gives no solution, I am guessing to stop kids from doing an override...

Per my 36A40 users guide:

If you cannot remeber the pin code you have stored,while in the PIN CODE entering mode, press RECALL button four times within 5 seconds. The pin code you have stored will be released. (Factory reset status.)

Need to know how to remove the red key on tv and code


When a red key appears in the lower left corner of your Apex television screen, the set's V-chip is engaged, preventing you from watching restricted content. You can override parental controls and reset your television's pass code with your remote.
Parental Lock
  1. The Apex prompts you to enter a 4-digit code when you set up parental controls. You can block programs according to their MPAA ratings or their content designations, such as V for violence or S for ****** situations.
Disabling the Lock
  1. You can override parental controls on most Apex models by simultaneously pressing the F and mute buttons on the remote control. If you own Apex models GT2011J or GT2011S, hold the remote's display button for ten seconds. The red key will vanish and the V-chip will unblock your program.
Override Codes Apex's default parental lock control code is 6688, so if you haven't set a new code, entering 6688 will remove the red key and unblock your program. If you've set a new password and forgotten it, entering 3308 will reset the code and unblock your program.

DVD parental lock


I have a GE 13TVR62 (with a problem listed here). I've learned that the Parental Lock Settings are changed by using the Remote Control. Usually the actual Settings are changed by pressing the Up or Down or Left or Right Arrows to make the Change; while the Parental Lock is Highlighted on the Menu.
