Resetting the v-chip password so i can remove it and watch all that i want

I got my tv from my parents and they set the v-chip but forgot the password. now i can't watch a lot of nice programs, so i wonder if there is a way to reset it. i read the manual and it says, and i quote: " If you forget the password you cannot set the v-chip. to avoid forgetting the password, write it down and keep it in a safe place". they didn't write it down, so i've tried every combination of numbers that comes to mind, with no luck. can you help me, please? thanks!

I had the same problem. Here's what Toshiba emailed to me:

  1. Disconnect the AC power for at least one minute to reset the clock.
  2. Adjust the volume to the minimum using the Volume down button on the front of the unit.
  3. Press and hold the Volume down button on the front of the unit and the 0 button on the remote control at the same time, holding them down for at least 10 seconds.
  4. The user menu will appear with the V-Chip cursor blinking.
  5. Press the ENTER key on the remote control and the NEW PASSWORD menu will appear.
  6. Enter your new password.
Hope that helps!!

What is the v-chip code for polaroid tv


Parental
DVD discs equipped with the child lock function are rated according to their contents and settings vary from disc to disc. Depending on the disc, you can lock out selected scenes or playback of the disc altogether. Access parental control by pressing the left/right (direction buttons together) on the remote control and then press the OK button.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
System Setup/Password
Parental control features are password protected. The original setting is unlocked. This setting allows you to use number buttons to input any password. Note: The Default Password is 1369. This password is always effective even after you
have selected your own password and changed it. To avoid the possibility of others using the default password to set the parental level and change the password, you can record this default password in another area and delete it from this manual. Some discs can be limited depending on the age of users while some discs cannot.

Manual is here

(you need Adobe Reader) and their phone # is
at the end!
