Bypassing the V-Chip Lock After you set the lock, you need your passcode to view

Hi i have a samsung tv n im with bell but i forgot my password for parental control... help??!!


The child lock on a TV can be a wonderful thing. A parent sometimes cannot be present for the duration of a kids' show, so the child lock ensures they can't watch programs that are off limits. The lock can, however, cause unwanted trouble--if it gets accidentally turned on and you don't know the code, you can find yourself unable to fully enjoy the full range of available television stations. Follow a few easy steps you'll be back to watching regular TV in no time. Instructions Locate the manual for your television. Though slightly embarrassing, accidentally turning on the child lock to a TV is a common problem. The section In the manual about how to set the child lock feature will also explain how to unlock it. Try a few "universal methods" for unlocking the child lock. Some televisions have a universal code built in for disabling the child lock --no matter what your code is. A common code is "0000." Unplug your television for a few minutes. The internal battery of the TV is what helps remember what your code. If the TV is unplugged for an extended period of time, it clears the internal memory, which in turn will reset your child lock code.

I cant remember the password i set for the parental control. how do i change it?


Call Sharp because from the description it is not clear that you are having trouble with the parental control. If you have a big black box on your screen that is the closed captioning and you press the cc button repeatedly to turn it off.

If this is really parental control then you can press and hold down the volume + and channel ^ buttons together on the side panel of the television when the tv requests you to enter the password. Hold the buttons down and it will tell you when the password has been cleared on your screen.
