Child Locked the TV

My son was playing with the remote and now I can only turn on the TV using the remote. THe screen comes on black, but the display info shows for about 5 seconds, then disappears and is replaced by a small red key symbol in teh lower left corner of the screen. I have no idea what PIN he could have used. Is there a reset button or something? Help!!!

* If you have a blank screen with a red key on the bottom left, simply 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. * If you have a GT2011J or GT2011S Television, hold the (Display) button for 10 seconds, it will unlock the screen. If password or code is requested, try 3308 or 6688. One of the above methods should get you past the lock. If so, I would take the opportunity to disable the lock in the TV's menu so this doesn't happen again. If this still doesn't work, you can call Apex Customer Support at (800)880-1227.

Black TV screen: no image, just sound


Sounds like the brightness might have been turned down. Does it have a manual brightness control? Sometimes there is a combination of buttons you can push on the remote to reset the TV to factory specs. Add some more info about the TV, Make, Model #

Our son pushed some buttons, and now we cannot get rid of the square in the upper right corner that says "video 2". HELP!


Hi,
Video-2 is on-screen display. Press Display/ info button on tv remote, on-screen display will disappear.
Please note that only Sony tv remote will work to cancel on-screen display.
Thanks.

Black spot on screen


Your son turned on the closed captioning text mode. The black box is where it would appear if there were any text. Go into your setup menu and turn off the captioning, or restore the factory presets.

Cant get the dmtech lq17xts tv's freeview to work


General reset procedure for DM tech is:
1. Have Analogue station showing,
2. Press display button on remote,
3. With display info panel in view on screen, press 1 1 Line buttons on remote, this should bring up reset menu on left hand side of screen.
4. use up/down arrow buttons on remote to select either Reset or EEPROM then use right arrow button on remote to select the appropriate procedure

NB - on my set, selecting OFF the annoying melody that plays when the TV is turned ON/OFF diasbles Digital TV (Freeview). Turning ON the annoying melody makes DigiTV work again!

If you can program a Comcast remote or another universal remote that has an info key, you can get rid of it. I just succeeded in programming my comcast remote thanks to Dave Taylor:

Once the remote is programmed, hit the "info" button and watch your frustration disappear!

No picture on tv when i turn on dvd. get split screen black & whi


Give this a try. Using your user's manual, locate the "Configuring your recorder" section. Under this section there will be "System setup - general" subsection. Being that you are unable to see anything on your tv display you will need to use your manual as your display. Press the "SETUP" key on your remote. Once again using your manual as your display, scroll down to "Restore factory settings" and press "ENTER" As long as you are located in North or Central America and using interlaced video outputs you should have your normal display back.
Hope this helps.
