Our kitchen tv is lock on Child, we didn't knowingly do this our children are over 35, it wants a password which we also have never given our tv's a password. How can I get this undone. Judy

Hello there,

If you didn't set any password, the default password for most Insignia TVs is 0000. If this doesn't work, you should be able to use 9999 to override or reset the password. After unlocking the TV you may also need to switch off the parental control (V-Chip) feature from withing the on-screen menus

If these numbers don't work or you need assistance with switching off the parental control feature, please reply to me with the model number of the TV.

All my chanels are blocked every time i change the chanel ive got to press the 1111 key every time to get the station


You've probably activated the parental control / child lock. This can be done accidentally by pressing a certain combination of buttons on the remote. To turn this off:

1. Press the "MENU" button on the remote control
2. Select the "LOCK" option (the padlock icon) with the left and right arrow buttons "" ">" on the remote
3. Enter the password. The default is 0000 but yours appears to be set to 1111. Try either or both.
4. On the next screem make sure "SYSTEM LOCK" and "UNRATED LOCK" are set to "OFF". Highlight each option with the up and down arrows on the remote and change the setting using "" or ">"
5. When they are both set to "OFF", press "MENU" again to return to watching TV.

All your channels should now be unblocked.

Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please post back.

What is the v-chip code for polaroid tv

DVD discs equipped with the child lock function are rated according to their contents and settings vary from disc to disc. Depending on the disc, you can lock out selected scenes or playback of the disc altogether. Access parental control by pressing the left/right (direction buttons together) on the remote control and then press the OK button.
System Setup/Password
Parental control features are password protected. The original setting is unlocked. This setting allows you to use number buttons to input any password. Note: The Default Password is 1369. This password is always effective even after you
have selected your own password and changed it. To avoid the possibility of others using the default password to set the parental level and change the password, you can record this default password in another area and delete it from this manual. Some discs can be limited depending on the age of users while some discs cannot.

Manual is here
(you need Adobe Reader) and their phone # is
at the end!

Parental lock

Child Lock

--Should have original remote. Press and hold the power button for 6 to 10 seconds

Combo Model T25208, V-Chip Forgotten Password
If you forget your password, simultaneously press VOLUME down on the TV/VCR front panel and the 0 number button on the remote for a few seconds. This resets the password and you can enter a new one.

Combo Model 13TVR62, V-Chip Forgotten Password
If you forget your password, press STOP/EJECT on the TV/VCR front panel and MENU on the remote simultaneously. This resets the password, but not the limits you’ve set.
Televisions with Parental Lock Feature

If you forgot your password for this feature, press the following buttons on the remote, one at a time. (Note: You must be in the password entry screen) Press, Mute, Display,Clear and Reset, this unlocks parental controls and you can now re-enter a new password.
Press and hold Menu on the TV AND volume down on the remote for 3 seconds. Nothing will appear on the screen, and the Parental Controls will unlock, and you can re-enter a new password with the LOCK PARENTAL CONTROLS

Channels that have been locked can be viewed only when the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to OFF. This can only be done with the remote control-it can not be changed with the buttons on the front of the TV.

Therefore, after you turn on PARENTAL CTRL, you simply hide the remote control so that your children can not watch the locked channels. The locked-out channels will remain unviewable even if the TV is unplugged or the channels are autoprogrammed again. The only way to view locked channels is to use the supplied remote control to set the PARENTAL CTRL function to OFF.

The PARENTAL CTRL and the CHAN CTRL functions work hand-in-hand. The instructions below will first tell you how to turn parental control on or off with the PARENTAL CTRL function and then how to lock desired channels with the CHAN CTRL function.
1. Repeatedly press MENU to select SETUP MENU, and then press + or - to display setup functions. Repeatedly press MENU to select the PARENTAL CTRL function. . When this function is set to ON, PARENTAL CTRL is activated and any channels you locked with the CHAN CTRL function will not be viewable. . When this function is set to OFF, PARENTAL CTRL is deactivated and all channels are viewable.

2. To lock channels, press the MENU button to select the CHAN CTRL function. Select a channel you want to lock by pressing CHANNEL up or down. Then press +. The CHAN CTRL setting will change from NORMAL to LOCKED when that channel is locked. To return the channel to NORMAL, press the - button. Repeat step 2 for each channel you want to lock. If the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to ON while you are locking out channels, each channel will go blank as you lock it. When the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to ON and a channel which has been locked out is tuned, the TV will display the words PARENTAL CONTROL to let your kids know you have locked it.

If the front panel function buttons don't work, (menu, ch up/dn etc.) but the functions work normal with the remote, enter the "Channel" menu with the remote and turn "Parental Control" off.

In the event you have forgotten your password, perform the following procedure:
Press and hold for 3 seconds the TV button on the remote while pressing the menu button on the TV.
This procedure will turn off the parental lock and erase the previous password .

Another Possibility To Try For Various Models: If TV's in the Parental mode and askes for a password that's forgotten, Press menu on the TV, select Parental Lock #4 on menu, then with the remote press Mute, Display, Clear, and Reset buttons in sequence.

TX808 Chassis
If Parental Controls have been set and you don't know the password, do this:
Press and hold the volume down and the channel up buttons at the same time for 5 seconds.
Now you can reset the password to 0000, and using that password you can now access the V-Chip menus.

TV's (Made by Daewoo or possibly Apex, ie. GE model 24GP653)
The factory default pass code of 6688 is also the override code, in case the owner forgets their pass code. If that doesn't work, another place in the owners manual says to push Function and Mute on the remote at the same time. Function is the top right button.

Parental code

although my situation was a bit different, part of msimeomix's solution still worked. after entering the password "3308," the screen went blank. i knew this parental code had worked but it would still not allow me to access the "setup" or "menu" options. i pressed "STOP" and then ejected the disc/turned the DVD player off. upon turning it back on and entering the password "3308" i was able to immediately press "PLAY" and it worked. enjoy the movie :]

No picture but have sound

RDD6 - I had the same problem with my AVT-1498. Took it to the repair shop who told me it would cost hundreds to repair. I figured I could find a replacement crt for less but was wrong - they don't make these tv's anymore, and really don't make any 12v crt's anymore period. So I decided on a 15" 12v ready LCD model which fit the hole where the old crt TV use to be. I needed to rig it to hold the LCD bracket but that wasn't too difficult. Then just hooked the wires back up. Good luck with your situation.
