How to activate and deactivate child lock on LG 43UM7100PLB

Child blocking and protection, or parental control, is very useful to prevent your children from watching certain programs or accessing certain applications.

Parental control is an optional feature that is often available on high-end devices such as your LG 43UM7100PLB.

However, it may be difficult to activate or deactivate this mode on your LG 43UM7100PLB. We will see here some methods that allow to set these parameters in less than 10 seconds.

If you know the lock code

If you have never set the child lock on your LG 43UM7100PLB before, the lock code is probably the factory default.

It’s likely to be “0000” or “9443”.

If you have already set the child lock, then you will have to enter the code set before.

To lock and unlock the child mode, go to the “Menu” of your LG 43UM7100PLB.

You can access this through the same button on the remote control, or by pressing the Menu button once, located on the bottom or side of your TV.

Once there, go to the sub-menu “Broadcast” or “Configuration” of your LG 43UM7100PLB, by pressing the Plus and minus keys of your remote control or of your LG 43UM7100PLB.
