Well the universal remote will need to have the ability to gain access to the menu so you can go and change the settings for the "v-chip" or what ever the child lock is that you speak of. I hope you know what the password is or it may be "locked" for a very very long time. I say this about the password because usually this control is password protected. Yours may not be but,.... Good luck. What you seek is in the menu sequences somewhere. Start pushin buttons!

To open its child lock, you might have its original remote control. Try these methods. Locate the manual for your television. Though slightly embarrassing, accidentally turning on the child lock to a TV is a common problem. 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 common code is "0000."
Unplug your television for a few minutes. The internal battery of the TV is what helps remember what your code. If the TV is unplugged for an extended period of time, it clears the internal memory, which in turn will reset your child lock code.
If you wish to buy its original remote control, you have to contact the authorized service center. If you wish to buy a universal remote control, you should know about, which brand remote control have setup code to your TV/device brand. You should first make sure about the number of digits in the codes to your device have. There are 3-digit, 4-digit, 5-digit and even 2-digit codes. You can get this detail by the code list attached to every universal remote control. The brand name of the remote control you select isn't a matter; but, its code list should have setup codes to your TV/device brand, otherwise you can't set it up with your device. Check this link and note which brand remote control have set-up codes to your device brand, and buy that brand remote control, according to availability.

How can i turn on my tv which has child lock on with no remote?????


If you purchase a universal remote that can work with the philips magnavox, test and go through each codes until the tv comes on in which case you can navigate to the MENU, SET, and then CHILD LOCK to turn the feature off. With the tv plugged in, it can still receive signals from the universal remote and once you get the right code, it should be able to turn on.
You can even return the remote afterwards if you really dont want it. =]

Unable to turn magnavox TV on. Child lockout is on and unable to turn on TV. Do not have original Magnavox remote. I do have a Universal RCA Remote. Can you give me the code for my RCA Universal...


What brand is your universal remote? Best thing would be to go on the universal remote manufactures website and they should have a list of codes for models based on what model number your universal remote is. Then you can look up possible codes for your tv found in the users manual (which you can print from online) and it gives you like 5-7 codes that you try and will give you instructions on how to enter the code and save that code to your remote. I hope that helps.

Child lock on, TV off, No remote or manual=cannot turn TV back on


i found out on line in the owners manual that if u still have a remote control that came with the tv, u press the tv/av button and enter button at the same time to disable the child lock. New problem: u can't do it with a universal remote, even if its programmed to a magnavox tv. I called the 800 # to buy a remote control and the rep told me that it cost $50, not including the shipping and handling. so my husband put the tv in the car, brought an extension cord and took it to a local tv repairman who was kind enough to use his remote to remove the child lock for us. finally someone who is helpful for free. thanks to all the nice people out there!

Child Lock issue


Unfortunately the Child Lock facility disables the buttons on the TV.

You should be able to get a replacement remote control from an authorised Philips dealer, or you could try a universal remote control form most electrical retailers. Philips make a range of universal remote controls.

Instructions for activating and de-activating the child lock are in the manual. If you don't have the manual, download it here:

27" MAGNAVOX W/ CHILD LOCK ON- NO REMOTE!


On those particular Magnavox TV's you have to use the original type of remote to power it back on then un-lock the parental lock. It is a bummer that nothing else will work. Here is a link to purchase a replacement remote.. http://www.electronicadventure.us/Merchant2/merchant.mv?screen=prod
