Question about Apex Digital AT2702 27" TV

1 Answer

I've lost the remote to the Apex TV that I own, and unfortunately the TV has a picture of a key in the bottom left which I assume is some sort of lock, but none of the buttons work? Do I need to order this specific remote that may have the button on it to unlock the TV?

Any chance there's a manual override using just the set?

    Found this on the net:

    According to Apex, you can disable the parental lock using the following information.



        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.

    I imagine a universal remote would probably allow you to unlock the set as well. Hope this helps.

Need to know how to remove the red key on tv and code

When a red key appears in the lower left corner of your Apex television screen, the set's V-chip is engaged, preventing you from watching restricted content. You can override parental controls and reset your television's pass code with your remote.
Parental Lock
  1. The Apex prompts you to enter a 4-digit code when you set up parental controls. You can block programs according to their MPAA ratings or their content designations, such as V for violence or S for ****** situations.
Disabling the Lock
  1. You can override parental controls on most Apex models by simultaneously pressing the F and mute buttons on the remote control. If you own Apex models GT2011J or GT2011S, hold the remote's display button for ten seconds. The red key will vanish and the V-chip will unblock your program.
Override Codes Apex's default parental lock control code is 6688, so if you haven't set a new code, entering 6688 will remove the red key and unblock your program. If you've set a new password and forgotten it, entering 3308 will reset the code and unblock your program.

My four year old was messing witht he bottons on the front of my Apex AT2702 television set, and not all it shows is a blue screen with a key symbol in the bottom left hand corner.

Hi
There are 7 buttons with its front panel including power ON/OFF switch button.They are; From left to right:- Video, Menu, Volume(-ve), Volume(+ve), Channel(-ve) and Channel(+ve). If these buttons are not there, it will be difficult to operate this set without a remote control. If you haven't the remote contro with you now, buy one universal remote control. The universal remote control suited for this set is COMCAST ON DEMAND CUSTOM-3 UNIVERSAL REMOTE control. The setup codes are:-
0748, 0765, 0767
OK.
