First of all, read the manual that came with it, and if you don't have the original, look online for it, and search for the default PIN number(usually 0000, or 1234). If it has been manually changed by a previous owner, try asking them. If that doesn't get results, see if there is a Master pin # for the TV, and enter that through your ORIGINAL TV remote. Sometimes Universal ones work, but I wouldn't hold your breath. I have an ex-hotel flatscreen Philips, and it took me ages to find out that it had a Master Remote, and a secondary one for guests, and the Master one could alter the functions, like lock out the HDMI plug(to discourage plugging in your laptop, and force you to watch PPV TV, oh, yay), and I finally tracked down the master unlock for it.
Another option is, if it's a digital TV box, contact the manufacturer, and see if they can help, in regards to resetting the unit to factory settings. It will mean you will need to retune your TV to get the channels, but at least you can then chose your own passcode.
Hope that helps, and cheers from New Zealand! ;)

How to Unlock Your Apex TV When Screen is Locked


If you find that your Apex TV is showing a blank screen with a red key on the bottom left then the Screen Lock otherwise known as Child Lock or Parental Control has been accidentally activated and your TV will not respond to commands from the remote control.

To resolve this and reactivate the TV simply press the (function or F) button and hold down the mute button on the remote at the same time for around 10 seconds. 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 to reset any preset rating levels.

This extract is taken from an Apex Manual specific to the child lock function;

The Childlock function is designed to prevent chiIdren from watching TV. To activate: HoId down the F button and then press the MUTE button until the symboI “ ” appears on the screen. The TV will enter the Childlock mode.
Except for the “ ” symbol the screen becomes blue or black . To unlock the TV hoId down the F button and then press the MUTE button again.

Please Note:
The Childlock can be set or cancelIed only by the remote controI. After setting Childlock, secure the remote control in a safe place.

My akai tv is locked,don't know the code


Most TVs have a parental control lock that can be set to prevent children from watching specific television shows. In order to activate or deactivate the controls, you need to know the four digit security code or parental lock control password. If you forget the number you chose or if the lock gets set accidentally, it is still possible to unlock the TV.
Instructions

Turn on the TV and grab the remote. In most cases, you will need the original remote to unlock the TV if you aren't sure of the unlock code. If you don't have the original remote, you will need to purchase one.

Look at the screen. If you see a blank screen with a red key on the bottom of the screen, press 'Function' and 'Mute' at the same time. This should unlock the channel. This is an option for people who want the TV to stay locked but, want to be able to bypass the lock to watch a certain show or channel. All other channels will remain locked and the TV will fully lock when it is turned off.

Unlock all of the channels on the TV by entering the factory reset code. There are three main reset codes that TV manufacturers set. These are 0711, 6688 and 3308. Try each one until you find the one that works. This will reset the TV to original factory settings. When you do this, you will loose any information that you have stored in the TV, such as favorite channels, automatic timers and the clock. You will have to go through the full initial set up.

Call the technical support service number in your owner's manual if none of those codes work. A technician can help you troubleshoot the television because the problem may not be the locking control. When you call, make sure that you have the model number and serial number of the TV.

Take your television to a TV repair shop. In some cases, a professional who access to wiring diagrams for your television set may have to rewire certain components in order for the television to unlock. This is usually the case when the TV locks by itself while it is on.

Answer: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.
