Picture problems Hi my name is theo and im having a problem with my tv. It just went into lock down mode. None of the buttons on the remote work and all the buttons on the tv dont work either. It just has a blue screen and a red little lock in the upper left hand corner. I dont know what to do so if you could help me i would really like that. Thank you for your time.

Try pressing the disply button and hold for three to 4 seconds. This is a quick way of locking all functions also .. Once the set is working press display and hold to relock it or to unlock it. Good Luck PS please dont forget to rate this thread.

Just to verify, I have an Advent Q1435A television. my 2 year old started pushing buttons on the remote, and it went into lock mode, just as you described. I held down the display button on the remote, and after 5 seconds it came back to normal operation.

I do not know this particular TV, but some equipment locks up. In other words it will not do anything at all no matter what buttons you press. I hope techman is correct by pressing the display button for several seconds releases the lock. If this does not work, then usually it works if you unplug the TV, and leave it off for about an hour. My DVD recorder does this sometimes due to the internal computer, I only wait half a minute and plug the power in again, and switch on.

If none of the actual buttons on front or side do not work set may have a lock feature locking them out.

If only a single button is not working it will be a bad switch that the button activates--let me know if you have questions.

I need the code to set up my tv using at&t uverse remote, and the tv has no power button

  • Make sure that you have turned on the tv before you begin programing your Uverse remote control.

  • Hold down the TV button on the Uverse remote. (If you are trying to program a different device, hold down the button that names that device). As you are holding the TV button, press and release the OK button. You know you have done this right when all the mode keys flash twice.
  • Find the 4 digit code for your device
  • At this point, the TV mode button should flash three times. Try to turn the TV off by pushing the power button. If it does not turn off, try a different code. The manufacturer of your TV has many codes.
  • If none of the codes for your device work, try manually searching for a code. Go back and repeat steps 1 and 2. Then enter 922. Hold play as the remote cycles through various codes. When your TV turns off, push enter.
