Try unplugging the tv for one full day. While it is unplugged, press and hold the start button for 10 full seconds, then wait the remainder of the time, then plug it in and see if it resets.
What make and model tv do you have?

    Sounds good. What is the make/brand of this tv?

    Have you by chance tried going into the menu settings, find the tuner option, go to channel edit, then select the "autoprogram" option and let it run all the way? It will add all available channels to the tv.

Find puk code

Your phone will ask for PUK code when you entered the PIN code wrongly several times depending upon the mobile make. The mobile asks for PUK code so that unauthorized persons do not use your mobile for wrong cause.
To get PUK code please contact your service provider through phone or go directly to their office. They will provide you the PUK code for your mobile. The PUK code for mobile that you can open your phone. When you planning to call your service provider you cannot use your mobile as it is fully locked. Please use some other mobile with same network to call your service provider.
While you get the PUK code ,the service provider customer care officer will ask for your personal details to check whether the mobile belongs to you only. If they are satisfied with your answers they will provide with the PUK code
DONOT enter the PUK code several times wrongly,It will block your sim card permanently.
This PUK code is FREE. You no need to pay any sum to get the PUK code
Thank You.

    Sony ericsson w580i turn on it asks for lock code 4-8 characters. i have tried all the combinations 0000-00000000, 1111-11111111,1234-12345678, 0123-01234567,reverse

    To activate the phone lock protection:
    1. Select Menu > Settings > General (tab).
    2. Select Security > Locks > Phone protection.
    3. Select Protection > On.
    4. Enter the default phone lock code "0000".
    To change the phone lock code:
    1. Select Menu > Settings > General (tab).
    2. Select Security > Locks > Phone protection.
    3. Select Change code and follow the instructions.

    However IF it is to do with your PUK code see below..
    PUKs, or personal unblocking keys, are used to unblock a mobile phone which becomes blocked. Mobile phones may become blocked when a PIN (personal identification number) is entered incorrectly on three consecutive occasions. In some instances, the phone may become blocked, which requires a PUK to unblock it, and in other instances, the SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card itself becomes blocked and again will require a PUK to unblock it. Mobile phones are also blocked when they are reported stolen and if there is an outstanding payment on the account. It is important to differentiate between unblocking phones (using a PUK) and unlocking mobile phones (using another type of code). NOTE: It is a criminal offence for anyone to attempt to unblock a mobile phone, other than the network provider who put the block on the phone. If your phone has become blocked by mistake, for example you have entered the PIN incorrectly on three consecutive occasions, then you need to contact the mobile phone network operator with your details. To explain a little more, specific to your mobile phone network, You need to go to your Service providers, web site & navigate your way to the specific PUK details for your mobile phone network operator. Usually you have to Register your phone to get a PUK code.

    How to reset the parental control code - I forgot the code and want to reset with a new one

    This is what I found in the instruction manual on this and I posted it here for you. Try using 3355 for the code and everything else listed here. If that doesn't work, try the very last tip which tells you how to do a factory reset and repeat the first step using the 3355 as the code.

    Here's the instructions from manual:

    Parental Control
    Parental Control allows you to block certain channels or programs so children cannot view
    programs that are not age appropriate.
    To enter the Parental Control menu, you need an
    access code. The first time you enter, use access
    code 3355. See "Setting an Access Code" on
    page 33 for information on creating a new access
    You can set the following options to block
    • Channel Lock — Blocks selected channels
    • Movie Rating — Blocks movies based on their rating (G, PG, PG-13, R, NC-17, and X)
    • TV Ratings — Blocks TV shows based on their rating
    • Block Options — Turns on or off all your parental control settings
    NOTE: You can use Clear All to unblock the channels and programs that you have set.
    NOTE: If the Block Control in the Parental Control menu is enabled, all the sub screens in POP (POP1,
    POP3 and POP12) mode will be blank

    Setting an Access Code m
    After you enter the Parental Control menu for the first time, you can set your own four-digit access
    code. If for any reason you lose or forget your access code, you can use the default code.
    1 In the Parental Control menu, select Change Code.
    2 Using the number pad on the remote control, enter a new access code.
    3 Select Exit.

    Reset the original factory defaults. Press Menu on the remote
    control, select Setup, and then select Factory Reset

    How to unlock a palm treo 6oo

    There are different codes for different service providers. Here are some of them.

    For Sprint, Rogers, Bell or Verizon:
    Your mobile service provider may have set a locking code on your SIM before you received your smartphone. In North America, the default unlocking code is usually 1234 or 1111. You can try these codes, or call your wireless service provider to find out the default locking code they use. Enter the default unlocking code (PIN) and then tap OK. If this doesn't work, contact your mobile service provider to get the unlocking code (PIN) for your acount.

    If you enter the unlocking code (PIN) incorrectly three times, your SIM card will be blocked (not locked). If you see the "Unblock Phone" screen instead of the "Unlock Phone" screen, your smartphone has been blocked. You will need to contact your mobile service provider to obtain the unblock code (PUK).
    Extra caution
    If you enter the unblock code incorrectly ten times, your SIM will be permanently disabled. This prevents thieves from running up charges on your wireless account if your smartphone is stolen. If your SIM is permanently disabled, contact your mobile service provider to obtain a new SIM.

    If none of these work then you will need to call your service provider. Best wishes...hope this helps.
