Hi Maureen,

I'm sorry about the issue. In front of the device, can you press & keep holding the Channel Up button, then press & hold the QTR (record) button for 5 seconds, then it should unlock it.

Please let me know. Thank you.

Thank you. The machine wouldn't respond to the remote double-button, but I tried the procedure on the actual machine buttons and - bingo!
