    easy solution ... don't worry about the keys on the remote, press the "channel up" and "action" keys on the TV itself and this should solve the problem.

I just finished advising someone else with a similar problem.

Forget the remote you have, goto your local Electrical or Hi-Fi store and get a Logitech Harmony remote. I have never come accross anything it cannot control. You set it up over the internet through your PC connected to the remote with a USB cable.

They are not dear anymore either.
Logitechs site is HERE bit they also have other remotes out in stores not listed on the site.
I own one, and will never buy anything else again.

Can i reset master password without remote


No. You should have its remote control to do a master reset.
To do a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.

If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability? Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the site http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/ Check this site too. http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops.

You don't need the remote to unlock the TV. Any RCA universal remote will change channels etc if you want a remote.
Now from the manual: simultaneously hold down the menu/OK button and the Volume down button for 3 seconds. This resets the pasword and unlocks the TV. You can then enter the menus as usualI believe to control/clear parental settings etc.

Setting up playstation


The PS50700 uses the PTK195 series chassis. You can switch the TV to the video mode by pressing MENU, press channel down 3 times to highlight "4 Channel", press MENU, press channel down twice to highlight "3 List and Labels", and then press MENU. The current channel will be highlighted, and you will press channel down until you go below channel 1, which is where the video inputs are (VID1, VID2, FRNT). To exit, press MENU, choose "Exit", press MENU and choose "Exit" again, or just wait until the menu times out. An easier way is to get a universal remote that has an "INPUT" button.
