Go to the philips site and download the full manual. There's the child lock reset key instructions there too. This link might help.

I have just bought a new remote control for mine from a company on ebay who do copies of remotes which are macine specific, as I have the same problem. It cost me a tenner plus delivery, so I will let you know if this works, as the only way I know of to get rid of this is to use the remote.

Cheers

    Update: Success, got the remote through, and although it doesn't have a child lock button noted on it, the one in the middle which looks like it is supposed to change the aspect took off the child lock. This remote is generic to alot of different philips machines, and some of the buttons on it don't do what you expect, but for a tenner it got my DVD player/VCR back up and running, and I can always use the buttons on the front of the machine now at least. I got it off fleabay, though they call it a controller for a DVD721VR.

MY RCA TTE 20V500T TELEVISION IS STUCK IN CHILD SAFETY AND TURNED OFF W/NO REMOTE TO ACCESS THE MENU


Hi,

Without remote its not possible to disable child lock. If it possible to arrange the remote then you can do the following to override the lock.



1.Press VOL+ on the remote and CHANNEL + on the
front of the TV at the same time. Enter New Pwd.
will appear on the screen. (You must be in the Enter
password screen when attempting this).


2.Press the number buttons to enter a four-digit code.
The code will appear on the screen as you enter it.

3.Press OK to save the code.

4.Press MENU repeatedly to exit the menu or the menu
will automatically disappear within a few seconds if
no buttons are pressed on the remote control

There is a purple key displayed on the upper left hand corner of the screen all the time. Im not sure how it got there, or why its there. It came up all of a sudden Any ideas? Cheers!


I would think this shows the child lock has been activated therefore the manual buttons will not work. There will either be a "key" symbo; button on the remote control to turn it off or you will have to go into the on screen menu to toggle off the lock. Without knowing the specfic make & model of TV, then I can't be more precise to let you know exactly where the child lock function will be.
