The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in and try again.

Otherwise, the manual should address any lock function if it exists.

When I cut it on it says channel locked enter passcode how do you get it to unlock


Press the "Menu" button to set the lock code for your JVC TV. A padlock icon will appear on the menu display.

Press "Zero" to access the lock code function then use the left and right arrows to select the four-digit number for your code. Use the up and down arrows to move to the next area of the display.

Select the up or down arrow to finish your lock code then use the left or right arrow to save your lock code settings and exit the menu. You can return to this display if you forget your four-digit lock code and set another code.

Write your four-digit lock code down and keep it in a safe, private area.

Select the locked TV channel you desire to watch or want to unlock. A message will appear on the display requesting you to enter your lock code to unlock the channel.
Unlock your JVC TV by entering your lock code on the 10-key pad. The message "Invalid Lock Code!" will appear on the screen if you enter the wrong lock code.

My akai tv is locked,don't know the code


Most TVs have a parental control lock that can be set to prevent children from watching specific television shows. In order to activate or deactivate the controls, you need to know the four digit security code or parental lock control password. If you forget the number you chose or if the lock gets set accidentally, it is still possible to unlock the TV.
Instructions

Turn on the TV and grab the remote. In most cases, you will need the original remote to unlock the TV if you aren't sure of the unlock code. If you don't have the original remote, you will need to purchase one.

Look at the screen. If you see a blank screen with a red key on the bottom of the screen, press 'Function' and 'Mute' at the same time. This should unlock the channel. This is an option for people who want the TV to stay locked but, want to be able to bypass the lock to watch a certain show or channel. All other channels will remain locked and the TV will fully lock when it is turned off.

Unlock all of the channels on the TV by entering the factory reset code. There are three main reset codes that TV manufacturers set. These are 0711, 6688 and 3308. Try each one until you find the one that works. This will reset the TV to original factory settings. When you do this, you will loose any information that you have stored in the TV, such as favorite channels, automatic timers and the clock. You will have to go through the full initial set up.

Call the technical support service number in your owner's manual if none of those codes work. A technician can help you troubleshoot the television because the problem may not be the locking control. When you call, make sure that you have the model number and serial number of the TV.

Take your television to a TV repair shop. In some cases, a professional who access to wiring diagrams for your television set may have to rewire certain components in order for the television to unlock. This is usually the case when the TV locks by itself while it is on.

I was given a mitsubishi tv but the previous owner had a password lock on it. Is there any way to access the tv by rebooting or something in order to use the tv?


1. Press the Mode button until the LOCK CODE display appears.
2. Enter the 4-digit code using the CHANNEL SELECTOR buttons.
3. Press the CANCEL button to cancel the previously locked channel. The LOCK CODE number display flashes.
4. To exit the CHANNEL LOCK mode, press the MODE button until only the Time and Channel display appear.

Secret text if the code is forgotten!
1. Press the Mode button until the LOCK CODE display appears.
2. Press Channel Number "9" and "QV" simultaneously. Knowledge of this procedure defeats the channel lock system.

Don't know code


Press the (function or F) button and the mute button at the same time. This will unlock the screen and allow you to view the channel as desired. • If your TV asks for a 4-digit code or password please enter 3308 or 6688 to unlock the screen or reset any preset rating levels

How do you reset a locked out channel when the code is forgotten?


Try pressing simultaneously the QV and 9 on the remote to bypass the parental lock. Then press the MENU button and go into the menu to turn the lock off. At least this is how it works on several other old Mitsubishi televisions. I don't have anything on ***********'s model, but this is worth a try. I hope it works for you.
