Re: I forgot the password to unblock channels. what do i...

If My memory serves me correctly LOL just kidding!! On Most every RCA there was no magic reset or button . The eeprom IC had to be changed! This little 8 pin package IC is solderd into place and its not a job or the experimenter or handi man. Get a pro to replace the IC and have him(the tech) install a socket on the iC just in case you forget again.. Good Luck

The TV is blocking certain channels and I don't know the code to unblock it.

If you forget your password, press and hold TV on the remote and the
MENU button on the television

simultaneously for 3 seconds. Parental
controls will then unlock and you can re-enter a password via Lock
Parental Controls.

Make sure you aim the remote at the TVs sensor while you press the TV button, and hold the menu button in on the front of the television.

I just bought a used tv from a garage sale and when I got home and turned it on most of the channels were blocked and I can't guess the code. Is there a master code I could use or something

According to the manual, the master password is 4357. Then, You must create a new password. You cannot use the master password to unblock channels.

How to unlock parental control ? I dont have the original remote and I dont know the password also. Only few channels are locked.

From the user manual p65.
Lost password ? In the password screen (see page 54), enter the following master password: 4357. The master password clears your previous password; it cannot be used to temporarily unblock channels.

Blocked Channels

Look for a reset to default feature in the settings of the TV. That should release the unblock feature and should pick up all channels during the scan.
