Question about ViewSonic N3251w 32 in. LCD HDTV
The Menu Lock is enabled or disabled by pressing Vol+ and Vol- at the same time. (The two left most buttons on the front panel of the TV.)
I hope this helps.
(Check if the Menu button works on the TV (the third button from the left). I've had some remotes lose the menu button while power, channel up and down, and volume up and down work.)

codes work. A technician can help you troubleshoot the television because the
problem may not be the locking control. When you call, make sure that you have
the model number and serial number of the TV.

professional who access to wiring diagrams for your television set may have to
