Question about Philips 42PFL5332D 42 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

The tv will power on, lock up and occasionally allow you to change the input or channel once then it locks up again. The problem isn't the remote batteries (which have been changed to a fresh pair) its the set itself. After it freezes, it won't even allow you to turn it off. It's unresponsive to the buttons on the set itself as well. I know my cable service isn't the problem as we have another tv in the house thats working fine.

wrong password is keyed in, In this case, press MENU to return to the previous menu.

● 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.

If my TV acts like it is locked but is not then what is wrong with it?


When an Insignia TV is locked, it keeps you from watching all of your channels by only displaying a black screen. Insignia TVs are locked from a single button command on the remote control, so it is easy for you to lock the TV by accident. Since Insignia TVs can be locked so easily, it's important to know how to undo this command and unlock the TV yourself. So, unlock your Insignia TV with the push of a button and once again enjoy watching your favorite programs.
• Find the lock button on the Insignia remote control. The lock button is located on the third column from the left on the second row from the top of the remote.

•Stand within operating range of the Insignia TV, then aim the remote at the TV's receiver and press the "Lock" button on the remote control.

• Aim the remote at the TV and press the channel buttons to make sure the TV is unlocked. When the TV is locked, it shows a black screen and does not allow you to view anything else. If the screen remains black, press the "Lock" button again. If this doesn't work, change the batteries in the remote and start over at step .

How to change input on tv without a remote


Which TV do you have? Some will have an Input or Source button on the front panel. A few will have an option to change the source from the menu. Both of these options require the front panel lock to be inactive.

A few older TVs allowed you to find the A/V input by pressing Channel Down on the front panel buttons until you passed channel 2 (or Channel Up until you nearly reached Channel 2). This option wouldn't work if the A/V inputs had been deleted when someone minimized going through unused channels.

If the Source or Input button was only available on the remote, you will need a universal remote that includes this feature. These cost a bit more than the lowest end remotes. Then you will have to try all of the codes to find the one that makes the Source button work with your TV. (Several codes may work for On/Off but not the change input.) The Universal remotes that can be programmed from a computer (USB connection) will be the easiest to set up. Remotes.com may have a replacement original or substitute remote for your TV that should work for all of the TV functions.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the TV make and model for specific options for your particular TV.

Motorola dvr dct6412 locked channels


Check with your provider to ensure that you are in expanded services, or limited. Because being on limited services the box will lock you out of those channels. If you are in billing for those services and you checked the batteries on your remote and they are good and you get a solid red blink when you change channels not a double blink (indicating that your batteries are dying), Then try power cycling your DVR by, removing the power supply and waiting 3sec then plug it back in. Your box should shut off, turn itself back on, then go into the load screen, then, once the load screen display shows on your tv and on box display, wait for your box to completely load (don't touch nothing until the correct time shows up, meaning that it has completed the load process) Once the process is complete turn box back on and you should have you guide back up and (No Data) on your program schedule(Don't Worry!!) it will populate, with 15-20 mins.

Now try to ch. up and down and see if that fixed the problem. also make sure nothing is blocking the sensor. If all else fails and you changed the battery, called your cable provider and request a box swap, (be sure to watch all your recorded shows because they go bye, bye with the cable guy!)

The screen will change to show the channel lock System Menu. This screen
