Child lock on and do not know how to disengage

My kids were using the remote and now I only have a blank screen with a red key on it. I have the remote but do not know what buttons to push to turn off the child lock. I saw a mention of an "F" key but do not have such a key. Help

Apex TVs use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The override code for many models is 6688. Other sets may not have one, or may have a default code of 1225 instead of an override code.

  1. To use the override code:
  2. Hit the MENU key to get to the menus.
  3. Go down to the SYSTEM menu and hit the right arrow on the remote control.
  4. Once in the SYSTEM menu, go to PARENTAL GUIDE. It will ask for your code.
  5. Enter the override code listed above. From here, you can turn on and off different rating restrictions, as well as set a new code.
No matter what the V-chip code is set to, the override code will still work. If you have a blank screen with a red key on the bottom left, simply press the function or F button and the mute button at the same time. This will unlock the screen and allow you to view the channel as desired

Child locked on my tv


Possibly, you will need an original remote to disable or turn off this feature. And some child lock can be accessible through neither MENU of your tv or remote. Check CHILD LOCK option to remove it. If it is a screen lock type of CHILD LOCK feature of tv (a Blue Background display a LOCK icon) and your original remote is lost, try a universal remote for you to possibly unlock it. Thanks for using Fixya.

I have a red key on bottom left side of screen. Have volume but no picture. None of the controls work on tv or remote.


Hello
Your TV is locked.

The Child Lock feature prevents unauthorized viewing of the

television. To activate, press and hold the Function key, and then

press MUTE. you should see a key symbol appear on the screen.

This will lock out all remote functions (except for Standby). To unlock

the TV, press and hold the Function key and press MUTE. This will

unlock the TV. Please note that the only way to activate or deactivate

the Child lock feature is via remote control - please insure that it is
stored securely.

Polaroid TTM-2003 Locked up.


The same thing happened to me. The manual on polaroid.com says to press and hold the F button (located at the top of the remote) and press the mute button at the same time. This will unlock as well as lock the TV. It's a child safety feature.

Television problem


According to Apex, you can disable the parental lock using the following information.

  • If you have a blank screen with a red key on the bottom left, simply press the (function or F) button and the mute button at the same time. This will unlock the screen and allow you to view the channel as desired.

  • If your TV asks for a 4-digit code or password please enter 3308 or 6688 to unlock the screen or reset any preset rating levels.

  • If you have a GT2011J or GT2011S Television, hold the (Display) button for 10 seconds, it will unlock the screen. If password or code is requested, try 3308 or 6688.

Apex GT2015 DV Problem


If your set has a blue screen with a small red lock on it, yes you are in the child lock mode, if there is no red lock on the blue screen then no you have another problem. The trouble is, if you are in the child lock mode, you cannot get out of it with out the proper remote hand unit. you will need to get an original replacement remote from Here:http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=gmi&smodel=GT2015DV&brand_pn=APEX_GT2015DV&mode=large&uid=11834488446870 There is no other way I'm afraid. Good luck

Child Locked the TV


* If you have a blank screen with a red key on the bottom left, simply press the (function or F) button and the mute button at the same time. This will unlock the screen and allow you to view the channel as desired. * If your TV asks for a 4-digit code or password please enter 3308 or 6688 to unlock the screen or reset any preset rating levels. * If you have a GT2011J or GT2011S Television, hold the (Display) button for 10 seconds, it will unlock the screen. If password or code is requested, try 3308 or 6688. One of the above methods should get you past the lock. If so, I would take the opportunity to disable the lock in the TV's menu so this doesn't happen again. If this still doesn't work, you can call Apex Customer Support at (800)880-1227.
