Child locked on my tv


Possibly, you will need an original remote to disable or turn off this feature. And some child lock can be accessible through neither MENU of your tv or remote. Check CHILD LOCK option to remove it. If it is a screen lock type of CHILD LOCK feature of tv (a Blue Background display a LOCK icon) and your original remote is lost, try a universal remote for you to possibly unlock it. Thanks for using Fixya.

Tip

Polaroid LCD TV Parental lock/unlock


Program Lock
Input the default password of 1235, the submenu
of Parent will display if the password is correct.

(a) When changing the password, the changed
password will be updated after four digits are input.
The word "ok" appears after you input the same
number twice, if the two passwords are different the
word "Failure" will appear.

(b) When All Clear is selected, all programs are unlocked.

(c) After you exit from the Program Lock menu and switch to a locked channel, the picture and
sound will be locked unless you input the correct password. The channel will remain unlocked
until the TV is turned off. After the TV is turned on again, the password must be re-entered to
view the locked channels again.

(d) If your program is locked, input the correct password to enter the Auto Search submenu.
Operating Auto Search will cancel the locked status.

(e) The default password is always effective.

(f) Entering the default password allows you to go to the Program Lock menu, then change the
password while the default password is still effective. This branch menu cannot be entered if a
wrong password is keyed in, In this case, press MENU to return to the previous menu.

(g) There will be slight delays while using the Lock All and Clear All functions.

● Child Lock
In Child Lock On mode, the buttons on the TV do not work. A prompt "Panel buttons are being
locked" will be displayed. However, the remote control buttons will still function. When the TV is
on and the Child Lock is on, a prompt "Locked, power off after 6s" will appear. Use the remote
control to control the TV. Otherwise, the TV will automatically enter into Standby mode.

Having trouble with setting your Parental Controls (V-Chip)?
The factory preset password is 0000. This password must be used first before setting your own personal password. It is recommended that you keep your personal password in a safe place and away from children. In the event you loose your personal password the master password is 8202. The master password overrides all passwords. The master password can't be changed and should be kept in a safe place away from children.

Logic locked tv is locked ineed apassword


Locate the manual for your television. Though slightly embarrassing, accidentally turning on the child lock to a TV is a common problem. The section In the manual about how to set the child lock feature will also explain how to unlock it.
Try a few "universal methods" for unlocking the child lock. Some televisions have a universal code built in for disabling the child lock --no matter what your code is. A common code is "0000."
Unplug your television for a few minutes. The internal battery of the TV is what helps remember what your code. If the TV is unplugged for an extended period of time, it clears the internal memory, which in turn will reset your child lock code.
