Turn off child lock


Setting child lock
The child lock can be set to prevent a programme being accidentally started or a programme in operation being accidentally changed. The child lock function locks all buttons and the programme knob. The child lock can be activated or deactivated by holding down the OPTION and OK buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds.

  • Before programme is started: Appliance cannot be used
  • After programme is started: Programme in operation cannot be changed
The icon appears in the display to indicate that the child safety device is activated. The child safety device is not deactivated once the programme comes to an end. If you want to set a new programme, you must first deactivate the child safety device.

How to remove child lock on Siemens d12-52


To dectivate child lock press the key with the clock symbol for 5 seconds. The child lock will deactivate.
If it still does not then you may have shifted the programme dial. Rotate the dial through each programme and try deactivating child lock in each programme setting. The child lock will deactivate only in the original setting that it was activated.

The battries in remote are new. the remote wont change channels or turn power on and off.The buttons on the tv set wont work either.It keeps saying child lock is on.


Hi,

As the remote is not working please

1.check the batteries are properly installed with correct polarity.(+ and -)

2.Check weather correct remote operating is set.(TV,VCR etc)

If both are OK then please programm your remote again with the TV.As you removed your battries it might reset the code



When using buttons on TV it says CHILD LOCK is ON.

Child lock fuction is to prevent children operating buttons in TV console. This can be set only by remote. Cannot set by TV console Buttons.If this fuction is activated you cannot use the TV console buttons.

Thanx

The machine (HVF 344) has stuck on the last minute of the programme and is permanently locked. The child lock has also come on. How can this be solved?


The child lock comes on when you press the child lock key for two second. To remove the child lock, press the same key for 4 seconds, this worked for me when I recently faced the issue!

A key has appeared in the electronic window and a zero for the duration of the programme. This happened after completing a wash cycle which was interupted and changed a short time into the wash cycle.


This is a "child lock" notification. It was probably triggered by the interruption.

See your manual to reset the child lock. If you see the child lock button, press and hold it for 3-5 seconds and it should beep to reset.
