Re: I can not remember the perental control code

When you reach an age where you eloquently seek a way around the moral blocks set by your parents, I say you earned your R rated content. From a similar model's Manual: If you forget your password, the password can be reset to 0000 by pressing and holding the volume down and the channel up buttons simultaneously for five seconds. Using this password, you can then access the V-Chip menus. Have a good time ;]

If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchased a suitable one.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability? Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. Check this link too. If you see these sites by "MOSAIC" or "Magazine" view will make surf easier.

If you ever forget you smartlock code, enter [ 0,7,1,1 ] code is the factory default, and can be used to enter and create a new acess code. OK.

My son some how used the universal remote to set the pass word on the V-chip controls. Now I am locked out and cant get any channels.

Most RCA and GE TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset is different depending on the model. Try each number until you find the one that works for you.
  1. Hold down the MENU button on the remote and VOLUME DOWN button on the TV it's self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  2. Hold down the 0 (zero) button on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN button on the TV itself at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  3. Hold down the MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. 4- Hold down GO BACK button on the remote and MENU button on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
  4. Hold down EJECT button on the front of the TV set and the MENU button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. Depending on the model, one of the methods should unlock the V-chip. Now, if desired, you can change the settings on the V-chip by going to the MENU and going to PARENTAL CONTROLS, or on some sets, going to MENU and then going to TV SETUP, then to V-CHIP SET.

Starting about two weeks ago, I have to scan for channels everytime I turn on the tv. Is this a memory card problem?

In order for the tv to remember the settings, it has a capacitor shaped like a large button that holds a charge and feeds the ic chip "memory" especially when the tv is turned off, or they use a battery to do the same thing, overtime they slowly degrade and reach a point where they no longer work. This will not effect the tv other than setting lost when tv is off. If you decide to have it fixed a tv tech will be needed.

Tv is lock with smartlock

The Factory code number is 0 0 0 0 If the code has been changed, You can select to reset it using the Setup Code either under the channel blocking or setup code section.
Once there, Press 0 7 1 1
You will be given a message "INCORRECT ACCESS CODE" Press 0 7 1 1 on the remote again
Next, "enter your new access code" shows on screen.
Now you can enter a new 4 digit code. (write it down somewhere)

Make sure your closed-captioning is set to "off" or to "caption 1" in the setup. You have it set to one of its "text" modes right now, and what's happening is the caption decoder is blanking the screen where the text would go if there was any. You're probably noticing this on some channels but not all - it will only show up when the channel has closed-captioning being broadcast.

The v-chip locking is a separate problem. If you can provide the make and model of TV, I'll see if I can find how to reset the lock code.
