Try this Hit "Menu" and go select the "Lock" sub-menu. It should ask you for a password. Initially the password for the US sets are set to 0 - 0 - 0 - 0.
If that does not work try 7 - 7 - 7 - 7. Once it accepts your password see if you have any locks enabled and turn them off.

I forgot code for parental lock on my RCA F32668 32" tv, please help. Thanks


RCA TV Parental Reset Code: First select parental control from the menu. You will be asked to enter your password. Press and hold the "volume +" and "channel +" buttons on your television (not the remote) for 8 seconds. You will see a message that the parental controls have been unlocked.

How To Unlock Your TV Parental Control Password

My akai tv is locked,don't know the code


Most TVs have a parental control lock that can be set to prevent children from watching specific television shows. In order to activate or deactivate the controls, you need to know the four digit security code or parental lock control password. If you forget the number you chose or if the lock gets set accidentally, it is still possible to unlock the TV.
Instructions

Turn on the TV and grab the remote. In most cases, you will need the original remote to unlock the TV if you aren't sure of the unlock code. If you don't have the original remote, you will need to purchase one.

Look at the screen. If you see a blank screen with a red key on the bottom of the screen, press 'Function' and 'Mute' at the same time. This should unlock the channel. This is an option for people who want the TV to stay locked but, want to be able to bypass the lock to watch a certain show or channel. All other channels will remain locked and the TV will fully lock when it is turned off.

Unlock all of the channels on the TV by entering the factory reset code. There are three main reset codes that TV manufacturers set. These are 0711, 6688 and 3308. Try each one until you find the one that works. This will reset the TV to original factory settings. When you do this, you will loose any information that you have stored in the TV, such as favorite channels, automatic timers and the clock. You will have to go through the full initial set up.

Call the technical support service number in your owner's manual if none of those codes work. A technician can help you troubleshoot the television because the problem may not be the locking control. When you call, make sure that you have the model number and serial number of the TV.

Take your television to a TV repair shop. In some cases, a professional who access to wiring diagrams for your television set may have to rewire certain components in order for the television to unlock. This is usually the case when the TV locks by itself while it is on.

Akai tv cant turn off parental controls


Your master password is 0000000 until you can't fit anymore into the space. Then reset to whatever you want. You are then able to go into the parental control and change it. Be sure they are all U as B is unable to view.

Parental code


To reset this condition usually requires a visit to the repair shop. To clear the parental control from the AKAI brand sets, you must enter the "Service" mode of the television. WARNING: There ARE adjustments in the service menu that CAN destroy your television if improperly adjusted.

This should not matter to you as long as you are simply reseting the parental lock function.

You must have the ORIGINAL FACTORY remote. (The one that came with the television when it was new.)

With the remote press the following one at a time in order:

MUTE - 1 - 8 - 2 - POWER.

Now you should be in the service menu where you should see RESET. Select reset and enter. Turn off TV.

Your done. When you turn your set back on, the code should be cleared.

Smart lock access code on tv


A model number for your Magnavox TV would be helpful because the Parental Control Reset procedure varies. There should be a sticker on the back of the TV showing the model number. If you have a newer LCD model, the unlock code is usually 0711. Ignore any "Incorrect" warning and enter 0711 again. Then set or clear the Parental Access Code.
