-CHIP enables parents to prevent their children from watching inappropriate material on TV.V-CHIP reads the ratings for programming (except for news and sports programs, uneditedmovies on premium cable channels, and Emergency Broadcast System signals), then denies accessto programming if the program's rating meets or exceeds the limitations you select. In this case,"PROTECTED PROGRAM by ..." message appears on the TV screen.To block certain ratings, follow the steps below.lProgramming may be rated by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) or accord-ing to the Television Parental Guidelines. In order to block any inappropriate programming, setyour limits in both places (MPAA RATING and TV RATING).lYou cannot access the menu when the "PROTECTED PROGRAM by ..." message appears. Inthis case, change to an unblocked channel, then press the MENU button.

This TV is fitted with a V-CHIP controller which provides you with channel viewing access controls
and restrictions. This function is to prevent your children from watching violence or sexual scenes
that you may choose to exclude.

1. Press the MENU button and press the SET + or – button to select the V-CHIP SET option,
then press the ENTER button.

2. Enter your password (4 digits) using the Direct channel selection buttons (0-9).

In the event of entering incorrect password press the RESET button. Then press the
ENTER button.

Enter the same password for confirmation, then press the ENTER button.

Press the SET + or – button to select the V-CHIP option.

Press the ENTER button to select the ON.

Press the SET + or – button to select the TV RATING or MOVIE RATING option. Press
the ENTER button.

Press the SET + or – button to select the desired rating for the applicable video or TV
channel. Press the ENTER button.

And to change or put in a new password:
NOTES:
• If you want to change password, follow steps 1 and 2 and select "CHANGE PASSWORD"
option then enter your new password.
• The V-Chip function is activated only on programs and tapes that have the rating signal.
• Once you block a program using the V-Chip function, the blocked program cannot be watched
based on the content of the show. When the program starts, the "INPUT PASSWORD" will
appear on the screen. When you want to release the V-Chip temporarily, enter the password.
If you change the channel or turn off the TV while the V-Chip function was temporarily released,
the original setting will be resumed. If you return to the channel you were watching you must
re-enter your password to temporarily release your V-Chip function again.
• When you watch the TV from the cable box or the VCR with the RF Modulator, then you release
the V-Chip temporarily, the V-Chip setting will not be resumed until you turn off the TV. The
TV channel is not used in this case.
• When changing the channel with the cable box or the VCR, approximately 10 seconds will
pass until the program appears.
So, it looks like you can merely change the password and reset the v-chip function as desired.

Let me know if you need more. Always glad to hear from you. Let me know if you have further questions.

Thanks

1. Press the Mode button until the LOCK CODE display appears.

3. Press the CANCEL button to cancel the previously locked channel. The LOCK CODE number display flashes.
4. To exit the CHANNEL LOCK mode, press the MODE button until only the Time and Channel display appear.

1. Press the Mode button until the LOCK CODE display appears.
2. Press Channel Number "9" and "QV" simultaneously. Knowledge of this procedure defeats the channel lock system.

Default accidentally pressed and v-chip locked programming


What you want to do is contact Polaroid Customer Support and tell them the situation and they will give you a factory default code for the v-chip. The Polariod C.S. # is 1-800-605-5364. They should be able to help you without any problems. Hope this helps...

I lost my remote codes


http://www.remotecodelist.com/remotes/magnavox/Philips-Magnavox_PM525S.pdf
This is the user's manual for a Phillips remote control. There is a list of codes in it. They should be rather universal. There's also instructions as to how to program it. I believe that there is a way to program it without using the codes.

Programming with Code Search

1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.

2. Press and hold Code Search button until the red indicator stays on. Release the Code Search button.

3. Press and release the desired mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blink, then stays lit.

4. Press the Channel Up button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device could be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks, then stays lit. If you accidentally overshoot the code required, press the Channel Down button to backtrack through the library until the device changes channel. Pressing Channel Up changes direction to forward again. Press and release the Mute button to install the code.

Hope this helps :)
