My akai tv is locked,don't know the code


Most TVs have a parental control lock that can be set to prevent children from watching specific television shows. In order to activate or deactivate the controls, you need to know the four digit security code or parental lock control password. If you forget the number you chose or if the lock gets set accidentally, it is still possible to unlock the TV.
Instructions

Turn on the TV and grab the remote. In most cases, you will need the original remote to unlock the TV if you aren't sure of the unlock code. If you don't have the original remote, you will need to purchase one.

Look at the screen. If you see a blank screen with a red key on the bottom of the screen, press 'Function' and 'Mute' at the same time. This should unlock the channel. This is an option for people who want the TV to stay locked but, want to be able to bypass the lock to watch a certain show or channel. All other channels will remain locked and the TV will fully lock when it is turned off.

Unlock all of the channels on the TV by entering the factory reset code. There are three main reset codes that TV manufacturers set. These are 0711, 6688 and 3308. Try each one until you find the one that works. This will reset the TV to original factory settings. When you do this, you will loose any information that you have stored in the TV, such as favorite channels, automatic timers and the clock. You will have to go through the full initial set up.

Call the technical support service number in your owner's manual if none of those codes work. A technician can help you troubleshoot the television because the problem may not be the locking control. When you call, make sure that you have the model number and serial number of the TV.

Take your television to a TV repair shop. In some cases, a professional who access to wiring diagrams for your television set may have to rewire certain components in order for the television to unlock. This is usually the case when the TV locks by itself while it is on.

I need to know what do if my jensen tv screen goes blue and a red lock has appaired in the top right corner


With my APEX Television, this means that the parental settings have been changed so that the TV will not let me watch certain Television show or movie ratings. Just go into the Tv's menu and look for parental controls. This should require a password to change. I would either suggest passwords 0000 or 1234
(My parental settings were my father's birthday year, so try something like that)

All my chanels are blocked every time i change the chanel ive got to press the 1111 key every time to get the station


Hi,

You've probably activated the parental control / child lock. This can be done accidentally by pressing a certain combination of buttons on the remote. To turn this off:

1. Press the "MENU" button on the remote control
2. Select the "LOCK" option (the padlock icon) with the left and right arrow buttons "" ">" on the remote
3. Enter the password. The default is 0000 but yours appears to be set to 1111. Try either or both.
4. On the next screem make sure "SYSTEM LOCK" and "UNRATED LOCK" are set to "OFF". Highlight each option with the up and down arrows on the remote and change the setting using "" or ">"
5. When they are both set to "OFF", press "MENU" again to return to watching TV.

All your channels should now be unblocked.

Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please post back.

Regards,
BElectric

Parental control


Try this Hit "Menu" and go select the "Lock" sub-menu. It should ask you for a password. Initially the password for the US sets are set to 0 - 0 - 0 - 0.
If that does not work try 7 - 7 - 7 - 7. Once it accepts your password see if you have any locks enabled and turn them off.
