Question about RCA 20F510TD 20 in. TV/DVD Combo
Have talked several times to support and was told some TVs came from the factory with the buttons locked and where you are unable to access the parental control menu to unlock. I don't want to send this in as I jjsut got (less than a week) and it seems to be to be some sort of glitch that maybe someone else has been through this and can helk me!
Problems with V-Chip/Parental Controls
The rating limits don’t work
• For rating limits to take effect, you must lock V-Chip settings to activate them.
I don’t remember my password and I want to unlock the TV
• If you forget your password you can reset it. Enter 5898 as the password and then change it
to a new one.

None of the solutions posted work :(
I tried 1234, I tried pressing the TV Menu button simultaneously with the Remote's TV button, and I tried 5898. All let me turn off Child Control, but later when I insert a DVD, it asks for a password.
At this point I have tried 1234 or 5898, but NONE WORK!
Can someone help???

They gave that code as well - the problem is the remote will only accept 3 digits not 4. Thanks for the response though!

I had to unlock my daughters controls. The manual gave the code of 1234 to unlock. It worked fine.
