-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

What is the code to unlock my mitsubishi CS-31303 tv?


Mitsubishi sets use a four-digit code for a V-Chip locked program, view a locked TV, cancel the lock, or to enter the V-Chip lock menus. You can view the locked shows on the TV set by pressing the number 9 and QV buttons on the remote at the same time, whenever your code is requested. This process temporarily unlocks the TV and asks you to enter a new code.

I was given a mitsubishi tv but the previous owner had a password lock on it. Is there any way to access the tv by rebooting or something in order to use the tv?


1. Press the Mode button until the LOCK CODE display appears.
2. Enter the 4-digit code using the CHANNEL SELECTOR buttons.
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.

Secret text if the code is forgotten!
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.

V chip locked up and dont have the code


Bypassing the V-Chip Lock
After you set the lock, you need your passcode to view
a V-Chip locked program, view the locked TV, cancel
the lock, or enter the V-Chip Lock menus.
If you forget your passcode, you can view the locked
TV without entering your passcode. This is done by
pressing the number 9 and QV buttons on the TV
remote control at the same time, when your passcode
is requested. This process temporarily unlocks the TV.
When entering the V-Chip Lock menu, this process
deletes your old passcode and prompts you to enter a
new passcode. Press HOME to exit the menu.

If you have misplaced the remote control, you can
bypass the front button lock by pressing and holding

Resetting V-Chip pin code


I don't know the sharp(mfg) code to activate my universal remote

May 12, 2008 | Sharp 27U-S60 27" TV

1 Answer

Smartlock code


I used the following that I found on a site that compiles v-chip reset solutions:

Philips and Magnavox:

Philips sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The override code
for Philip sets is 0711, although it may say "Incorrect code" the first time
to trick you. If "Incorrect code" is displayed, simply enter 0711 again. To
use it hit the MENU key to get to the menus. Go up or down until you reach
AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK, depending on the model, and push the "right arrow"
key on the remote. Enter the override code, and enter it a second time if it
says it is incorrect.

Once in the AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK menu, go to BLOCK, and push the "right
arrow" key. Go to BLOCKING OPTIONS and press the "right arrow" key. Go to
MASTER DISABLE and press the "right arrow" key so that it says "MASTER
DISABLE ON". The v-chip is now reset.

Forgot v-chip code


Sharp has several locking and V-chip commands but one of these three possibilities should work.
Newer Combos With "Time Limiter" Feature
If the "Secret Number" is forgotten, simultaneously press the STOP, RESET, and VOL up buttons on the front panel of the set.
This disables both the "Channel Lock" and the "Time Limiter" features.

CTV's Lock Mode---Blue screen and display says,Parental Control Rating Unknown
Try This: Hold Channel up and down on the set while pluging in AC cord.
Or Try This: On the set, press volume up and channel down at the same time.

CTV's V-Chip Release
When screen asks you to "input secret number" press and hold channel up and down on the TV set until message disappears. Press menu 2 times to exit.
Hope this helps!
