"to reset a v-chip for a DU 1901 press and hold the volume down(-) key on the television and press 1 on the remote at the same time until the tv turns off once the television turns off the v-chip is reset"

or another person says the 0 button does it too.

Thank You Jayson

    I called Wal-Mart and told them about the V-Chip problem....They replied
    to me and said that the model was pulled from the shelves because the
    V-chip did not have a factory default reset.. I had the link and I went there to
    see the TV and it is no longer on the site... It was there yesterday...
    I am going to try and find the link again but Has far as I was told by Wal-mart there
    is really nothing to do at this point.

    Give me a little more time unless some of our other Experts can help you .
    Thank you

Can you please provide the model number of your TV?

  • Jaime Hernandez Sep 14, 2008

    In order to reset the v-chip password on your 13" durabrand television, try the following:
    press the volume down button on the front of the tv, continue holding the button down after the volume is down all the way, while pressing the "0" on the remote control, this will bring up a menu, with v-chip flashing, release the buttons on the tv and the remote when the menu appears. then press enter, and follow the prompts to set a new passcode.

    Good Luck.

sometimes they do work.

Can not turn off the vchip channel lock on hd 1080


hello try this Bypassing the V-Chip Lock
After you set the lock, you need your
passcode to view a V-Chip locked program,
view the locked TV, cancel the lock, or enter
the V-Chip lock menus.
If you forget your passcode, you can
view the locked TV without entering your
passcode. This is done by pressing the
number 9 and QV buttons on the remote
TV control at the same time, when your
password is requested. This process
temporarily unlocks the TV.
When entering the V-Chip Lock menu, this
process deletes your old passcode and
prompts you to enter a new passcode. good luck

regards

TV wont turn on, makes buzzing noise and shuts off


I have two RCA HD52W59 TV's. I have had one for 3 years and one 4 years. The one I have had for 4 years is giving me the problem. Last week the tv turned off while watching it. It wouldnt come right back on. 10 minutes later we tried and it worked fine. the other night the kids were watching and it turned off and smelled like something burning. I tried turning it right back on and got no power at all. I tried to turn it on two days later and it made a buzzing noise and the green light went out. Never did get a picture, no powering up on the screen. Any ideas? Don't want to spend alot of money. Really loved the TV hope it isnt junk now. Better yet I hope the same thing doesnt happen to the other one I have.

I got a durabrand DBTVI024 and each time i try to watch a channel which is rated tv-14 or above a blue screen appears and says Blocked due to V-guide


I solved the problem by holding the v-chip button on the remote controller for like 30 seconds and then a menu appeared and let me choose to stop the v-guide fonction.

Samsung 65 in Mod HCN653w Picture Distortion


Do you have this problem on all inputs to the TV (Tuner,Video, Component, S-Video, etc...)? or just one? And does it affect the TV menu when it's brought up on the screen or no?

V-chip problems


9 times out of ten, this question will be asked by a kid trying to get around the v-chip his parents set. So forgive me if i'm not making this 100% easy for you. You're going to have to earn it. I'll tell you where to look, you handle the rest. It's in the manual. Now, if no one is watching over it, then I guess it serves them right. Open the manual to the contents page, and one of the references to the V chip there I promise will show you exactly how to override it. You can also find the manual on the internet. If you are a kid disobeying your parents, then I can only ask you to respect their wishes, or at least confront them and stand for what you believe is right. It's not dignified to go sneaking around, and then to go watch TV when no one is looking. Face your parents and tell them you think you are old enough, and ask to be explained why they think you can't make your own choices yet. Show them that you are resourcefull enough to learn how to unlock it on your own, and that you only ask them out of respect. Better do it now, and not when you're 30. ;] Good luck
