The lock code that COMES with the TV is factory set to 0000. If it was changed, I think you may be out of luck

The master reset code is 3448. enter this number to erase the previous password and set the new one. 0000 is the original factory setting. But the code 3448 will allow you to reset any password. I hope this information will help you with your problem.

How to disable the parental control lock for Insignia NS-Lcd19? I never enabled the pc and have not had this problem before-tv 3yrs old. Please help. I checked the manual and followed the instructions...


If you have never set a password for the Parental Controls, enter 0000 (four zeros). If you set a password (or believe one was set accidentally), use password 3448. You should then be able to change or disable the controls. If these steps do not work as your message indicates, your TV may require repairs. Service can be obtained by carrying the unit in to the place of purchase.

Our kitchen tv is lock on Child, we didn't knowingly do this our children are over 35, it wants a password which we also have never given our tv's a password. How can I get this undone. Judy


Hello there,

If you didn't set any password, the default password for most Insignia TVs is 0000. If this doesn't work, you should be able to use 9999 to override or reset the password. After unlocking the TV you may also need to switch off the parental control (V-Chip) feature from withing the on-screen menus

If these numbers don't work or you need assistance with switching off the parental control feature, please reply to me with the model number of the TV.

Regards,
BElectric

Ns-20lcd in locked mode will not unkock with a remote which I ordered. I there a master reset somewhere?


Insignia will tell you that you MUST have original remote to unlock. You press and hold Display button for 5 or 10 seconds. My problem is Best Buy tried to repair mine 3 times and one of those times replaced a board inside and original remote will note work and they will make no attempt to help me figure out what is inside. Mine has been locked for over a year. Locked by accident with universal remove.

1. Locate second power switch on back hidden below curve, left side if facing front of TV.
2. Turn TV on using this power switch while holding in MENU button on right side of TV.
3. This is reset the Lock feature!!

Child Lock on Insignia TV


I CAN HELP! After my having my Insignia NS-20LCD picture locked for over a year because no one could give me a way to unlock it, a co-worker found the secret!!

When facing the back of the TV, there is another on/off switch on the back on the right side just under the curve (very difficult to see). I didn't even know it was there.

Once you locate, turn the set on using that switch while you hold in the "menu" button on the right side (when facing the front) of the TV. This will reset the television and unlock the screen!

Accidentally locked out of my TV


Unfortunately with this model of Insignia you MUST have the remote that comes with that model number in order to unlock it. Other Insignia remotes won't work. So I have ordered another remote from an online company. Hopefully that will work. I'll probably have to call Insignia to have them walk me through it once the remote arrives.
