My tv is locked and asking for a an unlock code. I have never had a lock code on the tv since i bought it several years ago. How can I reset or bypass this feature. BTW mt TV is a 48-50" projection...


Hello
I thinks that you have its original remote handset with you now, and posts this solution. If you don't have it, either buy a new original remote handset or try to get it from any of your friends and relatives, who owns the same model of Mitsubishi Tv, you have now; only to unlock it. After unlock, you can use any other remote control.
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.
OK.

Need tv code, tv is locked


Hello,

Turn on the TV and grab the remote. In most cases, you will need the original remote to unlock the TV if you aren't sure of the unlock code. If you don't have the original remote, you will need to purchase one.
2
Look at the screen. If you see a blank screen with a red key on the bottom of the screen, press 'Function' and 'Mute' at the same time. This should unlock the channel. This is an option for people who want the TV to stay locked but, want to be able to bypass the lock to watch a certain show or channel. All other channels will remain locked and the TV will fully lock when it is turned off.
3
Unlock all of the channels on the TV by entering the factory reset code. There are three main reset codes that TV manufacturers set. These are 0711, 6688 and 3308. Try each one until you find the one that works. This will reset the TV to original factory settings. When you do this, you will loose any information that you have stored in the TV, such as favorite channels, automatic timers and the clock. You will have to go through the full initial set up.
4
Call the technical support service number in your owner's manual if none of those codes work. A technician can help you troubleshoot the television because the problem may not be the locking control. When you call, make sure that you have the model number and serial number of the TV.
5
Take your television to a TV repair shop. In some cases, a professional who access to wiring diagrams for your television set may have to rewire certain components in order for the television to unlock. This is usually the case when the TV locks by itself while it is on.

Also note that forgotten the passcode of your Mitsubishi TV. You can make it alive without knowing the passcode. Please follow
V_Chip lock bypassing prodedure is as follows
You can view your locked TV, cancel the lock, or enter the V_chip lock menus.

This is done by pressing the number "9" and "QV" buttons on the remote TV 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.


I hope this will help to solve the problem...

V-chip block passcode


Hello
You must have its original remote control handset to unlock your Mitsubishi tv.

After you set the lock, you must use your pass code

to view a locked program, view the locked TV, view

a locked channel, cancel the lock, or enter the Lock

menus.

If you forget your pass code, you can view the locked

TV without entering your pass code. When you are

prompted for your pass code, press the number 9 and

QV keys on the TV remote control at the same time. This

process temporarily unlocks the TV.

When entering the Lock menu, this process deletes

your old pass code and prompts you to enter a new

pass code.

• You can either enter a new pass code to open the

Lock menu and make changes or press EXIT to close

the menu.

• If any of the locks are turned on and you exit the

menus when prompted for a new code, the old

code and all lock settings are retained.

• If all locks are turned off and you exit the menus

when prompted for a new code, then the previous
code is erased.
OK.

Hope that helps, good luck

ALSO:
I searched a Magnavox manual for the lock feature here is what I found...
The following functions are disabled during SDM (and enabled after leaving SDM):
· Parental lock
· Blue mute
· Hospitality Mode
· No-ident Timer (normally the set is automatically switched off when no video signal (IDENT) is received for
15 minutes).
All other controls operate normally.
Entering Service Default Mode
To enter the Service Default Mode, press the following key sequence on the remote control transmitter:
0-6-2-5-9-6-MENU
Do not allow the display to time out between entries while keying the sequence.
Upon entry into the Service Default Mode, the letters “SDM” will be displayed at the upper right corner of the screen.

ALSO:
- Line 7 : “CHANNEL BLOCKED”
Indicates that all channels are locked except the selected channel.
The following complaints may be generated due to locked channels:
- TV cannot be switched on from standby with the local keyboard buttons.
- “CH+” and “CH-“ buttons on local keyboard do not function.
To disable the LOCK feature:
Select ”FEATURE” menu (with the Remote Control).
Select “LOCK” (with the Remote Control).
Set to “OFF”

My Mother has the VS-5003R big screen television that she purchased back in 1990. the television portion works fine but the ext-1 and ext-2 inputs are locked from a code that probably died with my father...


I have the same tv and same issue. I found chain of notes indicating that you can clear the lock by pressing 9-QV (two buttons) on the original remote at the same time. This works... however if you change the input again the EXT1 and EXT2 inputs will be locked again. It would be really nice if you can remove the lock feature completely.

Locked ext inputs


I'll give you the master reset, with set on, and from the remote hit Menu-1-2-7-0 this will bring up the Intilize screen and the word Initlize should be highlighted, if it is hit enter on the remote, this is the factory default settings so now if the set ask for a parental code it will be 0000
