Locked out of TV

My toddler pressed something on the remote and the TV has locked us out. All that displays is a blue screen with a red padlock image in the top left hand corner. No buttons on the remote control or television set will work now except the on/off switch. We tried pressing every button on the remote and tried turning the power off at the main for a couple of hours to reset the TV but it still will only show the lock.

I have a Harmony (now logitech) 688 and 550 remotes and I successfully unlocked my friends Hisense TV when I added the Hisense TV to the remote's device list. Either buy a better remote or find a friend or local TV shop that has one so they can unloack it for you. Beats having to buy a remote from China and waiting 3-4+ weeks.

Padlock, blue screen


Somehow in handling the remote control I pushed a button or combination of buttons and now have a blue screen with a lock symbol in red in the top left hand corner. I've tried turning the tv off, and unplugging it, as well as a combination of buttons on the remote, but it still is there.
What do I need to do to remove the lock?

Blue screen and red padlock


It sounds to me like a child lock function, which is usually what the screen + padlock is on TVs. Usually your original remote would have a button / sequence to unlock the mode. If you still have your original remote, look for a child lock button or refer to your remote manual (and/or TV manual for the child lock feature) to unlock the mode.
