GUEST,beachcomber Tech: 'Locked' Telly (4) Tech: 'Locked' Telly 15 Jun 10

I hesitated to include this post under "Tech" but the operation of anything electrical, newer than the Electric Kettle, is a horrible mystery to me.
Can anyone help? My young grandniece visited us a few days ago and "locked" our 5 yr old telly. It is a Phillips Black Line. How ? As far as I can remember she went into the "Menu" to correct the picture which had the letter "F" superimposed on the top right hand corner. She made several unsuccessful attempts to "remove" this letter "F" but while in "Child Lock" she changed that to "ON" . We have been unable to access the "Menu" ever since and all that can be seen, and that only briefly, is the message "LOCKED" ! ! The telly now will not respond to the Remote Control.
Help Please! The World Cup is on .have pity on an old "Technophobe"
