Question about Hisense TA42P40M 42 in. Plasma Television
My TV would not turn on so the other day so I unplugged it and it reset itself. Yesterday it would not turn on again and I have unplugged it several times for a couple of hours and it still no do nothing. The blue light up front will not even come on now

What if the menu doesn't stay on long enough to get the lock setting changed Is there a way if we take the backing cover off to reset TV?

The unit has a fault on its power board and sustain board.
It turns off because the sensor is preventing some component from bacoming overheated and catching fire or damaging further components. Seel professional repair.

Unfortunately, I'm going to need some further information from you to answer your question. I think the model number you provided is actually the model number of the Hisense remote control and not the model number of the TV. The correct model number should be located on a sticker on the back of the TV. Please can you check this and correct if necessary. I'm not saying you are wrong, but I cannot find any existence of TV model number EN-30505A.
This is where it gets a little confusing. If that is the model number of the remote control then you should be able to disable the childlock by pressing the lock/unlock button on the remote . . .
Please can you reply to me with the following information:
1. The model number of the TV;
2. Do you have the original Hisense remote and is it working?
3. The approximate age of the TV (to assist with identification in the absence of a model number);
4. The brand and model number of any remote you are using with this TV;
5. Is there a MENU button on the front or side of the TV and does it open the on-screen menu?
6. Is there a MENU button on any remote you are using and does it open the on-screen menu?
7. How did you engage the childlock? (if known)
If you can let me know these details, hopefully I will be able to solve your problem. You should note that some Hisense TVs can only be unlocked with the original Hisense remote. It is possible to lock and unlock them from a universal remote, but unlocking them this way is dependent on remembering which buttons were pressed to lock it. Obviously this isn't possible if it was done accidentally/unknowingly!

You must ahve its original remote control to ulock your Hisense TV. If you haven't one, try to gather it from any of your friends or relatives who owns the same model TV; just to unlock it. After unlock, you can use universal remote control to operate it.
To unlock do the following.
 Press the "Menu" button on the remote control. The TV menu will appear.
 Tap "Channel ^" or "Channel v" to scroll the cursor between the menu options. Select "Function" and press "OK."
 Select "Parental Control" and press "OK." Enter the TV's password when prompted.
 Choose "Off." The parental controls will switch off and the TV will unlock.
