And if that didn't help you can also try unplugging the tv POWER cord for 15 minutes and if lock appears again input "0000" again.
Before you go, please be sure to take a moment right now to click the positive rating so that I get credit for helping you today. Doing so does not prevent us from continuing our conversation here. My livelihood truly depends on your positive rating.
Please do not click bad-poor rating if you are unhappy with your product. Doing that blames me for your problem, destroys my standing here as a professional, and does not issue you a refund. Instead contact customer service or REPLY back here.
Thank you,
Mike
