no original remote, child locked on, and no manual?

How do you reset a pin code for a phillips tv

If you have not set your PIN-code when you first turned on the TV set, you need to do this before you can use the Child lock feature.
If you forget the PIN Code, unplug the AC power cord for 10 seconds to restore the PIN Code to 0000.
If you need to set your PIN Code for the first time, proceed as follows:
  1. Press the ' MENU ' button on the remote control to access the main menu.
  2. Press the cursor up/down to select FEATURES and press OK.
  3. Press the cursor up/down to select Child Lock and press OK.
  4. When the Enter PIN appears on the screen, enter '0000'.

Locking Controls of Insignia 40'' LCD TV

Alas, I have been through this with my children and unfortunately outside of a Parental Channel lock, I have not heard of a vendor who has created the capability of locking the set controls. It's just the unfortunate case that the controls are accessible to the child (I have another TV where they are on top and even my 9 yr old can't reach them - ha ha).Sorry my friend.

The battries in remote are new. the remote wont change channels or turn power on and off.The buttons on the tv set wont work either.It keeps saying child lock is on.

Hi,

As the remote is not working please

1.check the batteries are properly installed with correct polarity.(+ and -)

2.Check weather correct remote operating is set.(TV,VCR etc)

If both are OK then please programm your remote again with the TV.As you removed your battries it might reset the code



When using buttons on TV it says CHILD LOCK is ON.

Child lock fuction is to prevent children operating buttons in TV console. This can be set only by remote. Cannot set by TV console Buttons.If this fuction is activated you cannot use the TV console buttons.

Thanx

Child lock

From the main menu choose "Parental Controls;" it's option six.
  • Step 2 Choose the first option, V-Chip TV Rating Limit, and using the arrow keys and the OK button on the remote, scroll through until the TV-MA rating appears. Press the right arrow button to move the highlight over to the "Status" field and toggle to "View." Press the OK button. This will set the age-based ratings to Mature.
  • Step 3 From the Parental Controls menu, select the second option, V-Chip Movie Ratings Limit and change the rating to TV_MA and the "Status" to "View."
  • Step 4 From the Parental Controls menu select the third option, V-Chip Unrated Program Block and select item one, which will be "View."
  • Step 5 Select the fourth option, which is "Channel Block." Highlight the Channel field and using the channel up and down buttons, go through and check they are all set to 'View." Any set to "Block" will need to be toggled back to View.
  • Step 6 Lock the controls to activate the changes using item six on the "Parental Controls" menu.

    password for a particular channel, that channel will be blocked.
