For the RCA Television Model 27F530T, the way to reset parental control password is to do the following:

Have the TV turned off. Press and hold the Volume Down button on the TV (one of the six buttons on the tv) and the Clear button on the Remote. Keep them held down until the TV turns itself on. Then the password has been reset. You can access the menu through the remote by pressing Menu, and highlighting the Parental Controls option, then pressing OK to access it. The interface will prompt you to create a password.


This is the absolute way to do this. I am posting this because repairguy fixed my problem with this, and there are so many non-working solutions out there. This is the one that absolutely works for a RCA Television Model 27F530T.

You should be able to use the front panel controls on your set and find the locking function and un-lock it from there. Stargazer

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...

How to unlock jensen TS2750J parental control lock?


Hello
To unloxk your Jensen TV do the following.

1. Turn on the TV using the remote control. In most cases, you will need the original Jensen remote to unlock the TV if you aren't sure of the unlock code. You can purchase an original replacement online if necessary.

2. Look at the screen. If you see a red key on the bottom of the screen, press "Function" and "Mute" on the remote at the same time. This will unlock the channel. Do this if you want to bypass the lock to watch a certain show or channel while leaving the TV locked. All other channels will remain locked and the TV will lock again when it is turned off.

3. Unlock all of the channels on the TV by entering 0711 or 3308. These are the Jensen factory reset codes that will reset the TV to the original factory settings. By doing this, you will loose any information that you have stored in the TV, such as channel labels and schedules. You will have to program the TV again by going through the entire initial set up.

4. Call the technical support service number in your owner's manual if neither of those codes work. A technician can help you troubleshoot the television as the problem may not be the parental lock feature. Have the model number and serial number of the TV available when you call.
5. Take your television to a TV repair shop if neither of the codes work and the TV locked by itself while it was turned on. In this case, the TV may need to be rewired
OK.

I do auto programing some chanels get program some don't


Hello
Check first your set top box's, or TVs antenna or ariel connection is tight or not. It it is Ok, if you are receiving signals from cable, ask the cable operator to check the signal strength at the cable end of your home. It is measure with a 'db' meter. If the strength of the received signal is very weak, the same channels should not mamorized, and strong signal channels only will lock in. If you are using external antena, try to reorient its postion.
Anyway your TV doesn't get sufficient signal strength.

My brighthouse remote can turn my tv on and off but not change channels


The remotes have several device keys at the top of the remote. They have abbreviations like "VCR", "DVD", "TV", "CBL". By default some actions are locked into a specific key. By default, the volume buttons will always control the TV volume and the channel buttons will always change channels on a digital box.
If you have a digital box, and the channels wont change, the default locks might have been removed. Consult the instruction manual that came with the remote and re-lock the buttons to the correct device key. Otherwise you will need to press the "tv" button when trying to change volume and the "cbl" button when trying to change channels.
If you do NOT have a cable box and are just simply trying to use the universal remote as a primary remote, you will need to unlock the global channel lock. Consult the manual for the remote or check online for the remote guide. The Company which makes the remotes is called Universal Electronics and you can find digital copies of their manuals on the Brighthouse Websites.

CAN NOT GET CABLE CHANNELS , WITH DIRECT CABLE WITH USING THE CABLKE BOX MODEL 20DL74


Yep! I agree - your tuner on the TV is not made for Digital reception.
You will still need to use the Verison Cable box to view any channels.

The newer TV's have the digital Tuners built in. Note: Plasma's are faster locking on to channels than LCD's.
Blessings,
A/V Media Guy.

Fpa lock on how do i get this offf


hello Lock/Unlock Parental Controls
Selecting this option lets you lock and unlock parental controls settings
using a password.
If you do not lock parental controls, none of the settings for V-Chip,
Channel Block, or Front Panel Block will take effect.
If you forget your password, press the MENU button, then select Parental
Control
(the password entry screen appears). Simultaneously press and
hold CH+ and VOL+ on the front panel for 8 seconds. Parental Controls
unlock and the Parental Control menu appears. You can enter a new
password by locking the Parental Controls again.
Front Panel Block
Selecting this option lets you block (disable) or unblock (enable) the TV’s
front panel. The remote still tunes to any channel. When using this as a
Parental Control method, remove access to any remote that is capable of
operating the television while you have the front panel blocked.
Don’t forget to lock parental controls after you change the status. If you
don’t, the front panel block will not take effect .if this don't work get back to me i've got manual good luck
