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.

Hello
As we don't know the sequence of presses that the child has done with remote buttons, just make an unlock function to its V-Chip first. You have to give an other code after unlock, and must remember that four digit code. So write it back on a piece of paper the four digit code you are going to give to the TV, so that you may not miss it later. To unlock Apex TVs do the following.
Apex TVs have parental locks that allow you to block certain programs based on
their rating. When this feature is no longer needed and you want your TV to display all programming no matter its rating, you must unlock your TV. Unlocking your Apex TV is done completely from your remote control and does not require any tools. The process takes less than 5 minutes.
· Press the "Menu" button on the remote control and use the arrow buttons to scroll down to the "Parental Guide" option, then press the "Enter" button.
Type in the default parental code "6688" if you have not set your own code. If you have set your own code, type it in. If you set your own code and forgot it, override it by using "6688."
Use the arrow keys to switch the parental lock to "OFF." This allows all programs to be viewed no matter the rating. Press the "Exit" button on the remote and start watching all your channels.
After this process and set with an other code lock, just autotune the TV.
OK.

My son played around with the menu button and now we have a big black rectangle in the middle and don't know how to get rid of it.


Simple solution that black box is the closed caption, you can find in menu, or on remote. Switch closed caption off.

Black spot on screen


Your son turned on the closed captioning text mode. The black box is where it would appear if there were any text. Go into your setup menu and turn off the captioning, or restore the factory presets.

JVC TV has a black box on TV after watching a DVD. Tv picture is available around black box and have sound. But I can't see the TV shows with this giant black box in the middle. It happened after viewing a...


That black box is the closed caption display. There is a button on your TV remote marked cc, ccd, or closed caption display. When you press this button, you should see something pop-up on the TV screen. With most TVs every time you press the button the TV will cycle to the next cc option. There are several cc options available. One of the options should be "Off". Keep pressing the button until you see off and then stop. This should correct your problem.

Don't know code


Press the (function or F) button and the mute button at the same time. This will unlock the screen and allow you to view the channel as desired. • If your TV asks for a 4-digit code or password please enter 3308 or 6688 to unlock the screen or reset any preset rating levels

Tv/dvd combo only plays dvd's in black and white


Finally figured this out. On your remote push tv menu until you get to function. You should automatically be under col.sys. change this to NTSC. Took me awhile to get remote to work here, ended up pushing in the middle of the red vol +,- bar on the right of the remote. Couldn't find the right button according to the directions on the screen. DVD is now in color!! If you are not already on the option to change col.sys, use the red channel up down bar on the left of the remote.
