Question about Insignia IS 20" TV040919 TV
We set the parental control/V-Chip password on our Insignia tv, model IS-TVDVD20A, several years ago and have forgotten/misplaced the password. There is no info in the manual on how to cancel the password or reset the V-chip/parental control password back to the default/factory setting.
We contacted Insignia and was told that Best Buy's Customer Service now handles all of their TV service questions. Unfortunately, the Customer Service representative was unable to provide any solution on how to cancel the password we set or how to reset the V-chip/parental control password back to the defauly/factory settings. Her only solution was to take the set in for 'service' and see if the TV repair area could do anything (which would invlove a service repair charge).
Anyone have info on how to reset the parental control/V-chip on this model Insignia tv? A password it needed to access the parental control section within the OSD menu and, since we do not remember what we set that password to, we cannot get to the password reset screen of any of the parental control/V-chip settings.
I have an insignia hdtv and the manual says if you forgot the password, enter in 3448 in the password box to reset, it might be the same for yours, good luck
