I opened the TV, but no "switch" on the PCB to do a "reset to factory". ... You almost certainly need the remote, and also the service manual that .... and I was able to get into the menu by remote and to disable the Child lock.
THE SOLUTION FOR THIS FIX, AS IT WORKED FOR ME....I WAS LOCKED OUT BBY THE DUMB CHILD LOCK FOR TWO MONTHS, BOOUGHT A NEW REMOTE THAT DIDNT WORK....GET A 10$ REMOTE FROM THE STORE, AND ENTER CODE 0224 IT KILLS THE CHILD LOCK FEATURE..THEN YOU CAN POWER ON THE TV..GO TO MENU AND SELECT CHILD LOCK AND DEACTIVATE IT! THANKS ALOT MAGNAVOX..IT WAS NOT IN THE MANUAL FOR THE TV OR THE REMOTE FOR THE TV EITHER......CAPERS~
I have a magnavox 27MS343S and it is child locked, tv is off and do not have the original remote and it wont turn on although the powered up red lighht is on. Tv has been reset to sleep mode by universal remote. What can be done?
You need to buy a remote for that TV. They're available online for around $39. This site has them in stock, but you can shop around to be sure its a good price. When you receive it, turn on your TV and press menu on the remote and turn off child lock. Click the Remote here:
when you turn on child lock in magnavox models you deactivate keyboard on tv requiring original remote control to turn back on. remote control part number 996500015582 available through andrews electronics
Unfortunately the Child Lock facility disables the buttons on the TV.
You should be able to get a replacement remote control from an authorised Philips dealer, or you could try a universal remote control form most electrical retailers. Philips make a range of universal remote controls.
Instructions for activating and de-activating the child lock are in the manual. If you don't have the manual, download it here:
