Tip & How-To about Televison & Video
Mitsubishi Television asking for an unlock code.
Well you locked the set and forgot the code, or someone has locked the code before you got the set. One other scenario is that the code was entered by someone accidentally. Please note: If your parents have locked the television you should not be unlocking something that your parents have blocked. So don’t use these instructions to unlock a television that your parents have locked.
You must have the original Mitsubishi remote control to perform this operation on the set. Look on the remote for a button that is labeled QV (Quick View), if you have this button on the remote then we can press on. Go to the selected channel or input that is asking for the unlock code. When it asks for the code, press the QV button: Holding it down press the number 9 and release. This will unlock the set for this instance. To remove the code I suggest that you go through the setup menu and find the code lock and when it asks for the code use the QV+9 trick again to turn it off from the main menu.
If you do not have the original Mitsubishi remote you will not be able to try this trick. You will have to order a replacement remote from 1-800-REMOTES or www.remotes.com.
Once you have the replacement remote you can unlock the television and be back on your way.
I hope that this helps you with your television lock issues and as always, Thank you for using FixYa.
