V chip password reset

I recently purchased a t.v. and it was an off the shelf item and someone had set the v chip password. I've tried several passwords starting with the obvious and just making things up. The store I bought it from can't help me and the manufacturer will not help me because it was an open box item. Does anyone know a universal reset code that I can use to fix this problem? I would greatly appreciate anyone's advice on this issue. Thanks, Michelle

The default password for this model is 1234. If you have never changed the password, it should still be the same. I hope this was helpful, best wishes.

Reset Video Output

If you are changing cables or cannot see an image on the screen, you may need to reset the video output to default settings. To reset the video output:
  1. While the PS3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the PS3 beeps a second time (approximately 5 seconds), then release it.
  2. The PS3 will power up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).

I cant reset parental controls

Activated by a PIN number, you can set Parental Controls on your TV and/or cable set-top box to control the programs that can be viewed on your TV. There are three ways to block programs:

  • By Channel
  • By Rating
  • By Time Period (Not available in all areas.)
The V-Chip understands television program ratings and blocks programs based upon the rating level selected. All TV sets that are 13 inches or larger are required to incorporate the V-Chip technology. Parents set rating levels so that certain TV shows need a password to be viewed. For more information on the V-Chip and program ratings visit the FCC V-Chip site.
Several cable and satellite companies offer parental control options. They allow specific channels to be blocked so that they cannot be viewed.These companies also offer the ability to block shows based on language, violence, nudity, and rating levels. This offers more flexibility than the V-Chip.

Hope it helps ;-)

How can I get my Olevia tv back to the factory settings?

It's at the bottom of the Miscelaneous Menu (Book & wrench icon):
"Reset Factory Settings:
Initiating Factory Default will reset all OSD settings to original
manufacture settings. The only items, which will remain unaffected are:

Auto Scan Channels
Edited Channels
Parental Control Password "
If you are trying to take off the parental password:
"Note: If you forget the password, press "9999" to lift the Password lock
and change to a new preferred password. "
"" = Quotes straight out of the manual.

Locked Channels and V Chip password

Contact any TV repair service , they should be able to tell you the default password over the phone, if that does not work then the Television has been damaged in the main board, and most likely a replacement will be needed.
This is the best I can do for you I do not have access to this models password default setting.
let me know how it works out please.
