This use to work back in the day. I'm not sure if it does anymore
Hard Reset: Press "Menu", "6", "3", then quickly, "Info", Right Arrow, Left Arrow (this should bring you to Memory Dump screen), "TV/Video". You will get a message saying "Non volatile memory is corrupted..." From there unplug for 10 seconds and plug back

Just call Bell and ask them to reset it. They'll send a hit that will reset the lock for you.

It would take him a few minutes to actually lock out all the channels. It's not a one-and-done thing. Sounds odd.

I agree, it takes a long time to lock out all Channels.

You might need your PIN # when you call Bell.
