lock code is stuck on av 1
Expert:  Martin replied 6 years ago.
I don't see any way to lock on AV1 from the parental control. If you can't get it out of AV1 i would suspect a problem with the remote (the AV/input button).

Usually those system are by default on the Tuner setting, if you remove power long enough it "should" default back to tuner.
