How do I unlock the TV? I just hooked up cable and can't access

Customer Question

How do I unlock the TV? I just hooked up cable and can't access anything because the source keeps going back to AV which is locked with a 4 digit code. I never entered a code. I just moved and maybe something shifted during the move? Help, please.

I turn tv on.it says no signal. I go to source. I click on tv. It gives me the screen for Picture, contrast.etc then kicks me back to AV. Can't get to any other source.
