Many have a default code like all 9's but you may have to call the maker if not in the owner manual.

I have the same problem. While I don't have the permanent solution, I can tell you a few things. 1) You don't need to unplug, simply hold the power button down on the unit until it does a full reset (it normally just goes into standby mode when you tap the power off button). 2) I've noticed the locking only happens if I try to watch a netflix after I've used an optical disc between resets. IMO, I believe it's a problem with the system memory not updating and won't be solved unless they put out a specific firmware upgrade for it (unlikely on such a cheap player).

The default IP mode is set to Dynamic, which means your player will automatically detect and use
your network settings after you connect your Ethernet cable, but you can manually change these
settings if you are an advanced user and are comfortable with networks.
1. Turn on your player and your TV. If a DVD is not in the disc tray, the Home menu will be
displayed. If a DVD is in the disc tray, press SETUP to display the Home menu.
2. Connect one end of an Ethernet cable (not included) to the Ethernet port on your player
3. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to your home network (usually your router
home network must have broadband Internet access such as cable or DSL.
4. Press to select Settings, and then press SELECT.
5. Press to select Network, and then press SELECT.
6. Press ^ or down to select Wired and then press SELECT.
7. Press to change IP Mode to Manual and then press SELECT.
8. Manually change your network settings such as IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default
Gateway, the Primary DNS, and Secondary DNS.
9. Press ^ or down to select Apply and then press SELECT.
Note: If you need additional help setting up your network, please refer to the user manual for your
router or contact the manufacturer of either your router or your Internet service provider if they
provided the router for you.

Your ip settings will look something like this 192.168.2.1

You might be able to find you setting by going to Network Connections -> 2x click on Local Area Connection -> then click on the support tab.

Resetting parental controls


there seems that only 4 digits are the max but I could be mistaken, as far as reseting the password there is nothing listed on the Vizio website in the manuals ect for reseting the parental controls, probably due to security for the owner.

But there is a solution
if you call 877 MY V I Z I O
with you model number of your unit and make them aware of the parental lock issue there might be a way for them to explain the resting everything back to factory settings.

My son forgot his dsi password. What do we do next?


Hi.

Go into system settings and navigate to parental controls, tap on yes to change parental controls. Where the DSI asks for the password tap on "I forgot", it should then take you to the secret question page. Enter the secret question and you should be able to reset the password. If your son has forgotten his secret question again tap on "i forgot". It will then give you an 8 digit code. Leave it on that screen for the time being. Don't tap OK.
Post that code here and I should be able to provide you with a 5 digit code so you can reset the password and clear the parental settings.

MAnual/Reset Parental Control Code


According to the manual, "If you forget the password, you can erase your current password by pressing the number 8 button on the remote four times, thn press the enter button to confirm the setting. PASSWORD: 8888"

A picture of an unlocked lock indicates that Parent Lock is NOT active.

Parent Lock Levels:
1: Kid Safe 5 : PG_R
2: G 6 : R
3: PG 7 : NC _17
4: PG_13 8: Adult

It also says that it takes 3-5 seconds to reset the unit to the factory default. I hope this helps! Karen
