Go to the TV setup menu and look for the V-Chip settings. Turn it off altogether or if you have children you may want to just raise the block up to MA, R, or X rated programs

    If you push the settings button on your remote does it give you different menu pages? It may be labeled as V-Chip, Content Lock, Parental Controls, etc.

Dont have the remote control cant turn to channel 3 or 4 dont have a menu button


Isn't there a channel Up/Dn button at the front panel of this TV. It should be there. Only Menu button is not. There is Ch up ' Ch Dn and Vol Up ' Vol Dn buttons, beside a power button. Even pressing the channel Up ' Dn button, the channels cannot be changed, check the micro switches inside the TV. Replace them all at one time. You ave to open the TV to access these components.

Program Blocked errors


I was having the same problem with the constant blue screen appearing with different error codes. Here is how I fixed the problem on my Elements 19": I did a channel search. I found there were 68 analog channels and 274 digital channels. On a hunch, I went into Skip Channels and checked off all the digital channels since I have basic cable. Although the tv is HD and did pick up the basic HD channels, I choose to skip those two since I do not have a cable box on that tv and only the basic channels were in HD (about 8). I watched my tv for two hours and blue screen appeared once every 30 minutes, but the next day it did not appear at all.

I concluded that those error messages are because those channels are blocked and we have not checked them off to be skipped. When checking the Skip Channels, as you highlight each channel it will either come in or it will not. You will find the "Blocked Program" errors are coming from channels that do not come in and you will need to skip those channels.

I hope you can understand how I solved my blue screen problem on my Elements tv. Good luck!

HOW CAN I GET PROTECTED PROGRAM TV-PG OFF MY TV?


This problem is caused by your TV's V-chip setting.

To fix the problem:

Push the "Menu" button (on either the remote or the TV's fromt panel).
Use the "Channel Down" button to go to "V-CHIP SETUP"
Use the "Volume Up" button to select it.
In the V-chip setup screen, the rating that is selected by the user as viewable will allow that rating and only lower ratings to be viewed on that TV. (If TV-G) is selected, then any programs rated higher than TV-G will be blocked.

So, the easistway to get rid of any blocking is to set the rating to TV-MA (mature), and then any and all programs will be viewable on that set. Select "TV-MA" by hitting the "Volume Up" button after you have scrolled down to that rating with the "Channel Down" button.

Then hit "Menu" to exit out of the settings and saave your changes.
