The parental control password is entered during the setup procedure which you should be able to access using the remote. Once the setup menu is displayed on the screen, you should be able to guess your way through it to turn off the parental control

    Yes, we've tried all easy guesses, but It's probably a birthdate or some such thing. So there's no way without spending hours guessing, to guess the password.

    Is there a way to perform a hard reset on this tv set? We've left it unplugged for hours, days, and even weeks, and it's still set...

  • Tom Chichester Jan 16, 2013

    If you go to the setup routine, you may be able to simply disable the password or override it. Give it a try

  • Tom Chichester Jan 16, 2013

    Look at the post from Jaime Hernandez below. Downloading the manual could help sove your problem

  • Jeff Williams Jan 16, 2013

    The manual says nothing about how to get into the setup routine, and even in the menu options the only setup option is to channel search.

    --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.

    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.
    OR TRY THIS..
    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

    CTC169AU
    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.

    CTC185's
    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.

    CTC203's
    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.

    With my APEX Television, this means that the parental settings have been changed so that the TV will not let me watch certain Television show or movie ratings. Just go into the Tv's menu and look for parental controls. This should require a password to change. I would either suggest passwords 0000 or 1234
    (My parental settings were my father's birthday year, so try something like that)
