Mitsubishi lock code

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.

i have a mitsubishi WS-55315 parental lock is on.and i have no original remote is there a fix


You are going to have to have a Mitsubishi remote to do it--with that contact Mitsubishi and ask for the 4 digit code to enter to do the hard reset of the set--puts everything back to factory original when set was new.

My tv is locked and asking for a an unlock code. I have never had a lock code on the tv since i bought it several years ago. How can I reset or bypass this feature. BTW mt TV is a 48-50" projection type big screen approximatley 20 years old. Up untill now still had great picture so I have not replaced it.


Hello
I thinks that you have its original remote handset with you now, and posts this solution. If you don't have it, either buy a new original remote handset or try to get it from any of your friends and relatives, who owns the same model of Mitsubishi Tv, you have now; only to unlock it. After unlock, you can use any other remote control.
Mitsubishi sets use a four-digit code for a V-Chip locked program, view a locked TV, cancel the lock, or to enter the V-Chip lock menus. You can view the locked shows on the TV set by pressing the number 9 and QV buttons on the remote at the same time, whenever your code is requested. This process temporarily unlocks the TV and asks you to enter a new code.
OK.

I locked my tv because of kids and now i dont remember the passcode


I can only assume that you are not the kids trying to get into the set.

forgot code to unlock parental lock. Everytime I watch a p-g or r rated movie it ask for the code.


The only way I know is to reinitialize the set. You do this by pressing Menu on the remote control, the pressing the number buttons 2,2,7,0 in sequence. using the remote, press the adjust button to hi lite INITIAL, then press enter on the remote. this should put it back to out of the box settings and clearing the parental lock code.
If you have kids, I recommend they do not watch you do this.
Good Luck,
