Parental Control Lock

I bought a refurbished Vizio plasma TV. The problem is that the parental control was locked and I do not have the password to unlocked it. I wonder if anybody knows the procedure to reset the parental control password. Thank you in advance.

    TV froze up last night when trying to access Netflix. Had to cut power. Say a post that recommended doing a factory reset (clear memory) but I am unable to enter the parental control number.

I'm really guessing here - -but while you're in the parental controls screen I believe you can use 0-0-0-0 as a backdoor key. It's different for every manufacturer, Philips uses 0-7-1-1 example. But the users's manual for that TV says that the "default" is 0-0-0-0.. Don't really understand their use of that terminology so it's merely a guess... But here's something I am really sure of;;; The owner's manual can be downloaded for free at the Vizio web site: http://www.vizio.com/support/downloads/ and their support line is: 1-888-849-4623 or you can email tech support at: techsupport@vizio.com Hope this helps. Good Luck Bill

    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:

    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
