DURABRAND CG5660-M is asking for a Lock Key Code. Help!?

I have a DURABRAND CG5660-M Digital Set Top Box. When all the connections are in place and I switch it on the red power light comes on at the front of the box then after a few seconds it goes out and a green light appears under the Lock heading. This then prompts me with a message saying, "Enter Lock Key". I have tried entering different combinations of digits but to no success. I do know that it is a four digit code using the numbers 0-9 but have no idea what combination may be or how to find out as I have lost the manual. I have been searching the internet all night and still haven't been able to find any codes.
Your help would be appreciated!!

worked for me after 8 -10 times, press standby then turn off at plug and back on again after 3 seconds.
did not know why the 'lock key' came up but could be in -built to shut off after reprogramming the box a few times

fabulous advice! I pressed the standyby button, then pulled out the power wire, then plugged it straight back in, and yipee! It worked. fab. (don't give up, try it a few times).

previously without TV but now it works!

without a remote control, can you find a way of getting the first time installation sorted?

perfect....(a) press "Standby" button on the remote contorl, then unplug the power cord (within 2 sec.) of the set top box IMMEDIATELY;
(b) After 3 sec. plug in the power cord to the STB again;
(c) Repeat step (a) & (b) until the STB enter the "First Time Installation" screen. Then the box will proceed channel search again. thank you!!!

make sure you always turn the freeview box off b4 unplugging the electric supply. as this can cause it to ask for unlock code also. but follow this god of cg5660 advice,i did and it worked. amazing.

November 2009
i cant even turn off the box i have to pull the plug out, what is the code

September 2009
THANK YOU 'God of CG5660-M!'

Was a bit sceptical having read your advice but tried it nevertheless. I tried the '1998' code - it didn't work, so I pressed standby on the remote, pulled out the plug at the back and put it back on again all within 5 seconds. At approximately the 10th time of asking it worked!

Thanks again! ***** - 5 stars!!

Mine has the same problem as well. i was wondering if i could use a universal remote to work mine because my remote broke.


August 2009
Thanks alott - God of CG5660-M
Tried the 0000 code all afternoon then read your advice and it did the trick!!.. ive got tv again...

August 2009
I have tried to re-set my box as godof cg5660-m as suggested, unplugging and I still cant get it to work. Question 1 do you hold the stand-by button when re-connecting ??.
Question 2 does anybody else have any other suggestions please all I get is a blue screen showing DVB-t Digital terrestrial receiver. Thanks in advance

Hey Buddy!!

Enter the Supper password "1998" when the screen appear "Enter unlock Code"

If super password failed to work pls do as follows:-
(a) press "Standby" button on the remote contorl, then unplug the power cord (within 2 sec.) of the set top box IMMEDIATELY;
(b) After 3 sec. plug in the power cord to the STB again;
(c) Repeat step (a) & (b) until the STB enter the "First Time Installation" screen. Then the box will proceed channel search again.

Try Asda/WallMart (depending on where you are.) Durabrand is one of their own brands.
