I have somehow accidentally turned on the child lock in my Omni T6833NF television (the screen is blue with a red padlock in the corner, and it responds to no buttons except on/off). I bought the TV as a factory second and so don't have a manual. I have an Omni YKF-64 remote control with it. Any help much appreciated!

Omni TVs have a child lock that allows parents to prevent children
from watching specific channels or television shows with certain ratings. To
activate or deactivate the controls, you need the four digit pass code. If you
forget the pass code or if the lock gets set accidentally, you can still unlock
the TV. • Use the original
Omni remote control to turn on the TV. You need the original remote to bypass
the child lock. A universal remote won't work. Check the screen. If you see a blank screen with a red key on it,
press the "Function" and "Mute" buttons at the same time.
This unlocks only the channel that is on the TV. All the other channels will
remain locked and the TV will lock again when it is turned off.
• Unlock all of the channels on the TV by
entering "6688," which is the factory reset code. This code resets
the TV to original factory settings. Once this is done, you will have to go
through the initial setup.
• Call Omni technical support at (416)
260-0047. A technician can help you troubleshoot the television as the problem
may not be the child lock. You'll need to know the model number and serial
number of the TV. •Take your television to a TV repair shop if you
are still unable to unlock the TV. The problem may be with the wiring, so the
repairman may have to rewire the TV
The Red Lock indicates that it has been Child Locked, this could be done by
accidently pressing child lock. On your remote control there is a MUSIC button,
to turn off the red child lock PUSH & HOLD the button. The red lock does not
go off with a qucik push. You need to Push & Hold The music button for about
Somehow in handling the remote control I pushed a button or combination of buttons and now have a blue screen with a lock symbol in red in the top left hand corner. I've tried turning the tv off, and unplugging it, as well as a combination of buttons on the remote, but it still is there. What do I need to do to remove the lock?

Press VOL+ (on the remote) and the CH+ button on the front of the TV at the same time. Press the Number buttons to enter a four-digit code. The code will appear on the screen as you enter it. The code "0000" is the default of the TV. If you have not set up a code previously, then "0000" is the code.You cannot use "0000" after you set your own code (unless you reset the code to "0000").
Press MENU to save the code.
Hope this helps. :}

It sounds to me like a child lock function, which is usually what the screen + padlock is on TVs. Usually your original remote would have a button / sequence to unlock the mode. If you still have your original remote, look for a child lock button or refer to your remote manual (and/or TV manual for the child lock feature) to unlock the mode.
