I need code for smartlock


Philips sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The override code for Philip sets is 0711, although it may say "Incorrect code" the first time to trick you. If "Incorrect code" is displayed, simply enter 0711 again. To use it hit the MENU key to get to the menus. Go up or down until you reach AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK, depending on the model, and push the "right arrow" key on the remote. Enter the override code, and enter it a second time if it says it is incorrect.
Once in the AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK menu, go to BLOCK, and push the "right arrow" key. Go to BLOCKING OPTIONS and press the "right arrow" key. Go to MASTER DISABLE and press the "right arrow" key so that it says "MASTER DISABLE ON". The v-chip is now reset.

I have an old magnavox tv with a smart lock and need a default code


Press the "Menu" button on the remote to reveal the on screen menu, then press the cursor up or down until the option labeled "Features" is highlighted. Once the features menu is highlighted, press the cursor up or down buttons until the phrase ''Smartlock'' is highlighted. Next, press the cursor right button until it shows the phrase ''access code;'' on the access code screen, press 0, 7, 1 and 1 again. When the phrase ''incorrect code'' appears, enter a ''new code'' by selecting a four number code of your choice; this code will be used to control all functions related to the Smartlock code feature.

hope this helps John

Locked tv


Unplug the unit for 5 minutes... After you plug it back in try to power it up. If it won't power-up it's not the result of any lock feature you have another problem... If it powers up and Smartlock is on try this:
The entry code for AutoLock (Magnavox SmartLock) to reset the password code number is 0711 twice.
However, if 0711 is entered just once, the response to first time will be "INCORRECT". If the word INCORRECT is allowed to time out then the second entry of 0711 is not accepted.
To avoid this response when the first 0711 responds with INCORRECT, Immediately enter 0711 a second time. It will then ask for the new code.
Enter the new code and confirm it (2nd time) and proceed to set the blocking as desired.
If you want to purchase a remote for it try here: http://remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Search&o=c&uid=0&m1=27ms343s&uuid=12091926696600

Good Luck!

Smartlock code


I used the following that I found on a site that compiles v-chip reset solutions:

Philips and Magnavox:

Philips sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The override code
for Philip sets is 0711, although it may say "Incorrect code" the first time
to trick you. If "Incorrect code" is displayed, simply enter 0711 again. To
use it hit the MENU key to get to the menus. Go up or down until you reach
AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK, depending on the model, and push the "right arrow"
key on the remote. Enter the override code, and enter it a second time if it
says it is incorrect.

Once in the AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK menu, go to BLOCK, and push the "right
arrow" key. Go to BLOCKING OPTIONS and press the "right arrow" key. Go to
MASTER DISABLE and press the "right arrow" key so that it says "MASTER
DISABLE ON". The v-chip is now reset.

Press VOL+ (on the remote) and the CH+ button on the front of the TV at the same time. 6. Press the Number buttons to enter a four-digit code. The code will appear on the screen as you enter it. The code "0000" is the default of the TV. If you have not set up a code previously,then "0000" is the code.You cannot use "0000" after you set your own code (unless you reset the code to "0000"). 7. Press MENU to save the code.
