Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Centrex TV and it is locked - a red lock in the top left hand corner. We have tried switching it over (overnight) but it's still locked and someone suggested holding the bottom right hand button /- for longer than 4 secs but this hasn't worked either. Any suggestions? Thanks & regards Penny

Some user has locked the functions, such as parental control. If you don't have password or code, you might try contacting technical service of manufacturer

Padlock, blue screen

Somehow in handling the remote control I pushed a button or combination of buttons and now have a blue screen with a lock symbol in red in the top left hand corner. I've tried turning the tv off, and unplugging it, as well as a combination of buttons on the remote, but it still is there.
What do I need to do to remove the lock?

Sorry but you're going to have to be a bit more specific than that.. What kind of Tv is it, what model number, is it the original remote, do you have an otherwise good pic and sound, do functions (vol, ch, power) on the Tv work???
