Good Day, mallory3; Try unplugging the TV from it's a/c source (reset). If this a MIT"S: To unlock the keyboard press and hold the "menu" button on the front panel for 10 seconds. Good Night & luck, big IRISH.

    Good Day, mallory3;

    It sounds like the front button assembly is defective. You can unplug it by removing the speaker and then the small panel, follow the wire harness. Then unplug. Then you should be able to use the TV via the remote.

    Give the Model Number and Brand and I'll locate part.

    Good Luck, big IRISH.

To open its child lock, you might have its original remote control. Try these methods. 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.
If you wish to buy its original remote control, you have to contact the authorized service center. If you wish to buy a universal remote control, you should know about, which brand remote control have setup code to your TV/device brand. You should first make sure about the number of digits in the codes to your device have. There are 3-digit, 4-digit, 5-digit and even 2-digit codes. You can get this detail by the code list attached to every universal remote control. The brand name of the remote control you select isn't a matter; but, its code list should have setup codes to your TV/device brand, otherwise you can't set it up with your device. Check this link and note which brand remote control have set-up codes to your device brand, and buy that brand remote control, according to availability.

My aiko tv model A3410 is on child lock and i have no remote. How do i get to child lock off?


Unfortunately, you can't disable the child lock (front panel lock) without a working remote for the TV. If you can find a universal remote that will match the Menu function of the TV, then press menu and find the child lock option. Then press Volume + or Volume - to toggle it to off.

I wish that I had better news for you. The manual for the A3410 is available here: http://ernie.awa.com.au/ArticleDocuments/1061/AIKO%20A3410%20Instruction%20manual.pdf.aspx . You will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the manual.

I have a problem with the remote control that is not working, I have taken it local technicians but nothing . My TV is in child lock so I need a remote for the tall big telefunken TV


Hi what you can do is to buy a universal remote control for this TV to remove the child lock. You can get that online or on any electronic shops in your area. Once done here is the instructions on how to remove the child lock using remote.
Look at the "Power" indicator light on the front of the television to check if it is blinking. When blinking, the child lock is enabled. You can also check by pressing the "Power" button on the television.
Point the remote control at the television and press one of the buttons on the number keypad. The "Power" indicator light will stop blinking, indicating the child lock is turned off.
Lock the television again by pressing and holding the "Power" button on the remote control until the indicator light starts blinking. It takes approximately three seconds before the light turns on. Thanks

I have the child lock on and the remote control is broken. How can I turn the tv on without the remote control


The power button on the TV doesn't work because of the child lock?
I went over the copy of your manual for your TV. It must be the child lock timer problem.
I would try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 mins and see if that reset the TV and releases the lock.
If it doesn't work, the remote needs to be replaced. A universal remotes aren't really universal when you need to use special buttons. The remote made for the TV is the best.
If your TV is the model 47PFL7403D, here's the cheapest place to buy a replacement.

To unlock the Panel Lock, Parent Lock, or Child Lock, follow these steps:
  1. Turn on your TV.
  2. On the remote, press the Menu button. The Set-Up Menu appears.
  3. Scroll to the Key Lock function and set function to Off.

27" MAGNAVOX W/ CHILD LOCK ON- NO REMOTE!


On those particular Magnavox TV's you have to use the original type of remote to power it back on then un-lock the parental lock. It is a bummer that nothing else will work. Here is a link to purchase a replacement remote.. http://www.electronicadventure.us/Merchant2/merchant.mv?screen=prod
