It sounds to me like you have a convergence problem. Most often when it changes after warming up it is still at the point where no parts may have to be replaced. However you must not use it any more until repaired. The way to fix the set is to unplug it and remove rear cover. Find the large metal heatsink(s) that have convergence ic's mounted to them. Number on ic's usually starts with STK. Then you must get to where the pins of these chips come through the board. Use caution when handling board and mark plugs that have to be unplugged. Anyhow, on the underside of board just resolder all pins of convergence ic's and reassemble set. It's really not that difficult to do but you have to have solder and a soldering iron. Most repair shops will charge 100.00-300.00 to perform this repair so with a few supplies you can save alot. Good luck, Russmann.

Need to know how to remove the red key on tv and code


When a red key appears in the lower left corner of your Apex television screen, the set's V-chip is engaged, preventing you from watching restricted content. You can override parental controls and reset your television's pass code with your remote.
Parental Lock
  1. The Apex prompts you to enter a 4-digit code when you set up parental controls. You can block programs according to their MPAA ratings or their content designations, such as V for violence or S for ****** situations.
Disabling the Lock
  1. You can override parental controls on most Apex models by simultaneously pressing the F and mute buttons on the remote control. If you own Apex models GT2011J or GT2011S, hold the remote's display button for ten seconds. The red key will vanish and the V-chip will unblock your program.
Override Codes Apex's default parental lock control code is 6688, so if you haven't set a new code, entering 6688 will remove the red key and unblock your program. If you've set a new password and forgotten it, entering 3308 will reset the code and unblock your program.

Red key on screen wont show or change channel


Apex TVs have parental locks that allow you to block certain programs based on
their rating. When this feature is no longer needed and you want your TV to display all programming no matter its rating, you must unlock your TV. Unlocking your Apex TV is done completely from your remote control and does not require any tools. The process takes less than 5 minutes.
• Press the "Menu" button on the remote control and use the arrow buttons to scroll down to the "Parental Guide" option, then press the "Enter" button.
Type in the default parental code "6688" if you have not set your own code. If you have set your own code, type it in. If you set your own code and forgot it, override it by using "6688."
Use the arrow keys to switch the parental lock to "OFF." This allows all programs to be viewed no matter the rating. Press the "Exit" button on the remote and start watching all your channels.

My K10 screen is showing "card locked" How do I get rid of the Card locked


Look at your memory card. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

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)

No Picture


As long as you can hook that same cable up to a different TV and get a good picture, you must have somehow damaged the tuner on the APEX - unless the set was mishandled while moving. Those cheaper brands won't take much punishment.
