I have a problem with my TV i need the default parental lock code for my TV


Hi,

The parental control menu enables you to limit access to programs that may contain objectionable material or are not suitable for viewing by children. The default access code for your TV is 0711.

Thanks and take care

We bought a magnavox tv from a hotel and some channels are blocked and we can't get all of our cable channels. Is there a way to reprogram the tv? It is a 25' and it's about 10 years old and in good shape....


the eprom that holds the stored codes needs to be wiped clean or re-set...unfortunately, unless the original remote is available to get into the menu...it will have to be done manually by a technician. the set needs to be opened, the eprom located, the proper pin-outs located and then proceed with resetting. if the eprom is an older type, then the codes were usually held there by a back up battery or super cap...in which case, you just need to remove the battery or super cap for a couple minutes.

Need Unlock channels


I called Philips Magnavox at 1 888 744 5477 and they told me the default ACCESS CODE number is 0711. It works on my TV though it didn't solve MY problem of the TV defaulting to Chanel 9 every time I turn it on. Drats. Hope this helps.

Smart lock


If that function was put in use by the previous owner, the fastest way to change the parental lock out would be to contact your friend and get the access code from them.
Since the set probably uses a bit of flash memory to store the access code and other settings, if an individual chip, that would have to be physically removed and replaced.
If you can locate service information on your set, it will likely contain a procedure to set the memory back to factory default.
