Tip

Mitsubishi lock code


Mitsubishi Television asking for an unlock code.
Well you locked the set and forgot the code, or someone has locked the code before you got the set. One other scenario is that the code was entered by someone accidentally. Please note: If your parents have locked the television you should not be unlocking something that your parents have blocked. So don’t use these instructions to unlock a television that your parents have locked.
You must have the original Mitsubishi remote control to perform this operation on the set. Look on the remote for a button that is labeled QV (Quick View), if you have this button on the remote then we can press on. Go to the selected channel or input that is asking for the unlock code. When it asks for the code, press the QV button: Holding it down press the number 9 and release. This will unlock the set for this instance. To remove the code I suggest that you go through the setup menu and find the code lock and when it asks for the code use the QV+9 trick again to turn it off from the main menu.

If you do not have the original Mitsubishi remote you will not be able to try this trick. You will have to order a replacement remote from 1-800-REMOTES or www.remotes.com.
Once you have the replacement remote you can unlock the television and be back on your way.
I hope that this helps you with your television lock issues and as always, Thank you for using FixYa.

Osd is saying the main menu is locked how do i unlock


Win Tyler,
Information on resolving your locked screen on your LCD is listed below.
In the TV Menu Settings menu you can
select TV Button lock to lock the TV
Menu and the side panel buttons. When

1. Press the Menu button on the TV. A message appears stating that the TV is locked
2. While the message is on the TV, press the channel up and volume increase button
simultaneously.
If you are using the DVI connector, you may need to verify the following settings:

Video, depending on the device you are using.
Color - The default color space is RGB. If the colors are not displaying correctly, you can change
the setting to YUV.
You can download and view the online users manual from the link below.

My Hisense lcd is lock.


This is how I got mine to work after weeks of struggling just trying to find a new remote (hisense is really hard to contact....).
1) Turn the TV ON. unplug the tv while still ON 2) hold down the "menu" button on the side of the TV and plug it back in. keep holding it down. the TV should turn on with the menu popping up. use the Vol <> keys and Channel <> keys to navigate the menu. go to the Vchip menu, and play around. I'm not sure what ultimately worked, but i changed the Vchip password to 1111, turned the reset menu to "on" and played around with the ratings settings (turning most of them to "u"s etc).
I went through this process several times and finally, the black background behind the menu turned to static. I played around with the channels, and the TV was unlocked. I turned the TV off, and then on again, and the channels showed up normally (no static). and it was no longer locked. I had to do the unplug thing several times, and was getting really frustrated looking for an "unlock code" in the manual (it just says press the button on the remote. so it was not really helpful).
But really, once you can just get to that menu you've made some progress, and just keep playing around with it until something works.
Best of luck!!
