I locked my tv and dont have a remote how do i unlock it?

In life, simple yet unexpected events take place, such as the loss or an accidental breakage of the television remote. When a television is locked while the remote is missing or broken, it makes matters worse. Locks are placed on televisions for privacy or age-restricted viewers. To prevent a repeat of this event, store an extra remote in the house or business where the television is located. Without the original remote, some alternatives are available to remove the lock.
Difficulty: Moderate Instructions things you'll need:

  • Television manual
    • 1

      Read the manual. Televisions are accompanied by manuals when new. Some contain information on operating the television without the remote. Search for the "Lock" or "Privacy" section in the manual. If applicable, follow the given instructions.

    • 2

      Reset the television. You can reset and eliminate the lock on some televisions without the remote, using a few tactics. Hold the power button for five seconds. The television will automatically restart. If the lock is still on, unplug the television and remove the battery from the back panel of the television. Wait several hours before reconnecting the plug and reattaching the battery.

    • 3

      Purchase a universal remote. If the manual or resetting option does not work for your television, you need a universal remote. You can get one of these in electronics stores or online. The universal remote supports most televisions. The universal remote manual is included in the purchase and will instruct you on installing it into the television. After installation, enter the lock code using the universal remote.

I wnat to unlock my tv without the remote control

If you are referring to a parental block you are able to over ride that. It usually requires having the access code that came with your set and the original remote control. The universals won't normally allow access to the menus required.

I suspect that you may have the ability to do that from the front panel also. You will find that information in the owners manual... You will need to contact the manufacturer online to see if an owners manual is available online. Most of them are if the set is new enough. You will need the complete model number from the back of the set for that.

This is assuming that there is not a defect in the television itself that is always a possibility but less likely than it's a parental block situation and you will need the specific access code to override that.

My tv channels are lock and i cant get them unlock what do i do

You will need to consult the owners manuals of both the remote control and television. The lock out devices are usually in the television parental codes. The code is what you will need to input to unlock the television.You can reset the products to factory specifications by removing the source of power to them. This will mean taking the batteries out of the remote control and unplugging the television from the A/C power source. You will need to let the microprocessors drain off the residual power. For the remote control this will require using a button like the input button to drain the power by continuously pressing the button for about 1 minute. This may require more than one try to completely drain off the power. The television will require being unplugged from the source of A/C power for about 1 hour. This will reset the components. The instructions for doing these procedures are in the owners manuals of each product. The manuals also have the process for resetting the codes to operate the components. If you do not have copies of the products owners manuals, you can use the computer search engine browsers to find them. You must find the Brand name of each product and put in the brand name to get to the Customer support web page. Once you are on the web page for the product go to the support section and use their menu to find the pdf copies of the owners manuals. You will have to know the model number of the product to get this information. A pdf reader and writer is also needed for reading the owners manual and making a copy of the manual for your own use. I hope this information helps you with your problem with the television. Thank you for using FixYa and have a nice day!

Unlock child lock

Generally, No. You can buy a universal remote and hope it supports the command to unlock the TV; otherwise you need the specific remote for that TV since the child lock function is very specific to each product.
