Question about StarTech.com StarView SV211K 2-port KVM Switch

1 Answer

My Menu is locked and asks for a password which I've forgot?

When I press the Menu button on my remote, it asks me for a password. Now, I have tried 0000 and various other pin numbers that I can think of ie date of birth etc but to no avail. I cant actually remember setting another pin/password.

Is there a way of unlocking this or not as I cant re-scan my box or edit channels, favourites etc or change the time settings?

Cheers

Danny

Is that even possible to sett a password on a swich?
I couldent find anything about that.
Is there a "reset" button back on the swich? if there is push it and hold it for at least 5 seconds, that will remove all possible passwords.
I found the manual for it though,

Good luck!

Zenith Z42PT320. I set parental lock code for my son and forgot password. How do I reset or retrieve?


Zenith TV unlock [Child lock]
Tune the television to a channel blocked by a child lock. The words "Enter Lock Code" will appear on the screen with four dashes underneath
Press the numbers on the remote control to enter the child lock pass code to unlock your Zenith television. When the code is entered correctly, the blocked channel becomes visible. The words "Enter Lock Code" remain on the screen if the password is not correct

Enter "0000" if you did not change the password on the television prior to enabling the child lock feature. This number is the default pass code for the child lock.
Push "7777" if you changed the pass code for the television but no longer remember the code. This number allows you to bypass the child lock and watch the programming.
Key lock
Press the "Menu" button on the remote control to access the "Main Menu" screen on the television.
Scroll to "Special" using the up or down arrow buttons and press the right arrow button to access the "Special" sub-menu.
Push the up or down arrow button to highlight "Key Lock" and then press the right arrow button.
Press the up or down arrow button to change "Key Lock" to "No" and then press the "Menu" button to save the setting.

Combo Model T25208, V-Chip Forgotten Password
If you forget your password, simultaneously press VOLUME down on the TV/VCR front panel and the 0 number button on the remote for a few seconds. This resets the password and you can enter a new one.

Combo Model 13TVR62, V-Chip Forgotten Password

Televisions with Parental Lock Feature


If you forgot your password for this feature, press the following buttons on the remote, one at a time. (Note: You must be in the password entry screen) Press, Mute, Display,Clear and Reset, this unlocks parental controls and you can now re-enter a new password.
OR TRY THIS..
Press and hold Menu on the TV AND volume down on the remote for 3 seconds. Nothing will appear on the screen, and the Parental Controls will unlock, and you can re-enter a new password with the LOCK PARENTAL CONTROLS

CTC169AU
Channels that have been locked can be viewed only when the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to OFF. This can only be done with the remote control-it can not be changed with the buttons on the front of the TV.

Therefore, after you turn on PARENTAL CTRL, you simply hide the remote control so that your children can not watch the locked channels. The locked-out channels will remain unviewable even if the TV is unplugged or the channels are autoprogrammed again. The only way to view locked channels is to use the supplied remote control to set the PARENTAL CTRL function to OFF.

The PARENTAL CTRL and the CHAN CTRL functions work hand-in-hand. The instructions below will first tell you how to turn parental control on or off with the PARENTAL CTRL function and then how to lock desired channels with the CHAN CTRL function.
1. Repeatedly press MENU to select SETUP MENU, and then press + or - to display setup functions. Repeatedly press MENU to select the PARENTAL CTRL function. . When this function is set to ON, PARENTAL CTRL is activated and any channels you locked with the CHAN CTRL function will not be viewable. . When this function is set to OFF, PARENTAL CTRL is deactivated and all channels are viewable.

2. To lock channels, press the MENU button to select the CHAN CTRL function. Select a channel you want to lock by pressing CHANNEL up or down. Then press +. The CHAN CTRL setting will change from NORMAL to LOCKED when that channel is locked. To return the channel to NORMAL, press the - button. Repeat step 2 for each channel you want to lock. If the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to ON while you are locking out channels, each channel will go blank as you lock it. When the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to ON and a channel which has been locked out is tuned, the TV will display the words PARENTAL CONTROL to let your kids know you have locked it.

CTC185's
If the front panel function buttons don't work, (menu, ch up/dn etc.) but the functions work normal with the remote, enter the "Channel" menu with the remote and turn "Parental Control" off.

CTC203's
In the event you have forgotten your password, perform the following procedure:
Press and hold for 3 seconds the TV button on the remote while pressing the menu button on the TV.
This procedure will turn off the parental lock and erase the previous password .

Another Possibility To Try For Various Models: If TV's in the Parental mode and askes for a password that's forgotten, Press menu on the TV, select Parental Lock #4 on menu, then with the remote press Mute, Display, Clear, and Reset buttons in sequence.

TX808 Chassis
If Parental Controls have been set and you don't know the password, do this:
Press and hold the volume down and the channel up buttons at the same time for 5 seconds.
Now you can reset the password to 0000, and using that password you can now access the V-Chip menus.

TV's (Made by Daewoo or possibly Apex, ie. GE model 24GP653)
The factory default pass code of 6688 is also the override code, in case the owner forgets their pass code. If that doesn't work, another place in the owners manual says to push Function and Mute on the remote at the same time. Function is the top right button.

How do i turn the safety lock feature OFF that my son somehow managed to turn on?


Thanks for the information.

If there is a key symbol illuminated on the display, press and hold the "LOCK" button on the Zenith remote. This is located near the bottom of the remote, near the REC/ITR button.

For the parental lock feature, press the SETUP button on the remote then use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to highlight RATING and press the RIGHT arrow once. This will open the rating menu. Press the DOWN arrow repeatedly until UNLOCK is highlighted then press ENTER. Finally, press SETUP again to close the menu.

You may be asked to enter a password to change the rating setting. If you know the password (4 numbers), enter it when prompted. If you don't know or you've forgotten the password, close the menu using the SETUP key, then press SETUP again to re-open the menu.

Dont select anything here, simply press 2 1 0 4 9 9 using the number keys on the remote and then press ENTER. This will clear any password that has been set. You will then be asked to set a new password the next time you try to access the RATING section of the menu.

Please try the above. If you get stuck at any point, post another message here and I'll get back to you immediately.

Regards,
BElectric

Do not have the password to unlock the TV. Whenever, I turn it on it's asking for the input password and the default is no longer 0000.


I'm not sure what TV you have but many times you can enter 5898 as the password and then it will allow you to select a new one. I hope it works on yours.
