It should be in the instruction manual.if you do not have it you can look for a copy on the net
or try this when the screen asks for the password on the tv remote push (at the same time) the buttons "QV" and "9" then go into the menu and change the password or just turn it off - some models ask for the password a second time, QV & 9 again

I HAVE A MITSUBISHI (MEDALLION MODEL TV).THE V-CHIP IS ON AND I CANT RELEASE THE V-CHIP BECAUSE A CODE IS NEEDED. IS THERE AN OVERRIDE CODE THAT CAN BE USED TO CLEAR THE VCHIP?


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.

How do i get the v-chip lock code to unlock the parental lock from my Mitsubishi model code ws-55413


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. When your password is requested, press the number 9 and QV buttons on the remote TV control at the same time. 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

hope this helps

How to change the v chip code to a mitsubishi medallion projection tv 62


Bypassing the V-Chip Lock on most Mitsubishi sets:
Mitsubishi sets use a four-digit passcode that is required to view a V-Chip locked program, view the locked TV, cancel the lock, or enter the V-Chip lock menus.
If you don't have the passcode, it is easy to bypass. This is neccessary if you forgot the code, purchased the set used, or if you simply don't feel like searching through your files to find it.

To bypass the V-chip: You can view the locked shows by pressing the number 9 and QV buttons on the remote at the same time, whenever your passcode is requested. This process temporarily unlocks the TV.

To reset the code: When you use the button combination 9 and QV while entering the V-Chip Lock menu, this process deletes your old passcode and prompts you to enter a new passcode.
Good luck, and let us know how you made out with this TV set.

I have an Akai PT5492S television that I don't know the v-chip password to and need to reset the v-chip password.


SETTING V-CHIP
This TV is fitted with a V-CHIP controller which provides you with channel viewing access controls
and restrictions. This function is to prevent your children from watching violence or sexual scenes
that you may choose to exclude.
Press the MENU button and press the SET + or – button to select the V-CHIP SET option,
then press the ENTER button.
Enter your password (4 digits) using the Direct channel selection buttons (0-9).
In the event of entering incorrect password press the RESET button. Then press the
ENTER button.
Enter the same password for confirmation, then press the ENTER button.
Press the SET + or – button to select the V-CHIP option.
Press the ENTER button to select the ON.
Press the SET + or – button to select the TV RATING or MOVIE RATING option. Press
the ENTER button.
Press the SET + or – button to select the desired rating for the applicable video or TV
channel. Press the ENTER button.

And to change or put in a new password:
NOTES:
• If you want to change password, follow steps 1 and 2 and select "CHANGE PASSWORD"
option then enter your new password.
• The V-Chip function is activated only on programs and tapes that have the rating signal.
• Once you block a program using the V-Chip function, the blocked program cannot be watched
based on the content of the show. When the program starts, the "INPUT PASSWORD" will
appear on the screen. When you want to release the V-Chip temporarily, enter the password.
If you change the channel or turn off the TV while the V-Chip function was temporarily released,
the original setting will be resumed. If you return to the channel you were watching you must
re-enter your password to temporarily release your V-Chip function again.
• When you watch the TV from the cable box or the VCR with the RF Modulator, then you release
the V-Chip temporarily, the V-Chip setting will not be resumed until you turn off the TV. The
TV channel is not used in this case.
• When changing the channel with the cable box or the VCR, approximately 10 seconds will
pass until the program appears.

How to Turn off V-chip


I would suggest searching your Menus on the tv for the option to turn it off. Or search your manual.

most cases will have a parental lock on the chip which is set by the owner.

"Each television set’s V-Chip works a little differently. Once you understand the
definition of each rating and content label, programming and activating the V-Chip is
as simple as following the set-up procedure which can be found in one of two places:
1) the television on-screen menu options, or 2) the written instruction guide included in
the owner’s manual. The V-Chip will only be activated if you select the option to do so."

From the back of my Mitsubishi Owners Manual, Appendix A

"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 TV remote control at the same time when your passcode 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. Pressing HOME at this time will cancel the entire passcode."

I hope that helps you.
