Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Child lock A bit complicated. Bought a big Philips 36" tv from ebay, unfortunately didn't come with remote. The childlock has somehow been activated and I've no idea how to unlock it. Do I need a remote or can it be unlocked manually? Not obvious what model the tv is, serial numbers on the back may help - Philips UVSH W76EGV023X815. Sorry it's pretty vague, hoping there is a standard procedure for Philips tvs.

How to Unlock Your Apex TV When Screen is Locked


If you find that your Apex TV is showing a blank screen with a red key on the bottom left then the Screen Lock otherwise known as Child Lock or Parental Control has been accidentally activated and your TV will not respond to commands from the remote control.

To resolve this and reactivate the TV simply press the (function or F) button and hold down the mute button on the remote at the same time for around 10 seconds. 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 to reset any preset rating levels.

This extract is taken from an Apex Manual specific to the child lock function;

The Childlock function is designed to prevent chiIdren from watching TV. To activate: HoId down the F button and then press the MUTE button until the symboI “ ” appears on the screen. The TV will enter the Childlock mode.
Except for the “ ” symbol the screen becomes blue or black . To unlock the TV hoId down the F button and then press the MUTE button again.

Please Note:
The Childlock can be set or cancelIed only by the remote controI. After setting Childlock, secure the remote control in a safe place.

If this Tip has helped please do take time to indicate this by using the rating buttons on the page below.

Many thanks for using FixYa.

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:

Child Lock Aiko TV


I had the same problem with an AIKO TV. The childlock was on and initially I couldn't find the remote after moving. Unfortunately the only way I got it unlocked was with the remote. So I turned the TV off with the remote. Then turned it back on and then had to go into MENU and change child lock from on to OFF. Sorry no other handy suggestions if you haven't got the remote.

Permant child lock


Sorry man The only way I know to unlock it is with the original remote. They are available at http://www.remotes.com You have to press the M or Mute button and the F or the Function button at the same time. If the remote you have has these buttons try them. Like I said if it doesnt work, you will need an original remote. See if anyone you know has one you can borrow or the store where you bought the TV, maybe they will let you borrow one. Good Luck
