Re: [mike03 & Ron.M] panasonic television child lock
[In reply to]
I was told to hold the sleep and volume down and that should reset it
HOW TO RESET THE UNIT (SELF CHECK)
To reset the unit, press simultaneously “VOLUME (–)” on the front panel and “TIMER” on the remote control.
Best bet for this is ORIGINAL Remote - 2nd best try a Panasonic Universal Remote with a (dedicated) timer button. (Almost ANY Universal Remote should, once programmed with the CORRECT code, be able to (at least) turn the set ON/OFF even with the set in Child Lock or (if equipped) Front Panel Key Lock engaged.
SELF CHECK is NOT the same as Service Mode.
I don't see any list of what al SELF CHECK actually resets, but SM says:
TO EXIT SERVICE MODE AND RETURN TO NORMAL MODE
To exit SERVICE MODE, turn off or reset (SELF CHECK) the television.
As Ron.M said there may (or may not) be a reference to this (or another method) in the Operating Instructions.
