According to the Samsung website, this is the method to reset the Vchip PIN.

1. Turn TV on.
2. Press power button on the remote, TV will turn off.
3. Press Mute on the remote.
4. Using the remote, press the buttons 8, then 2, then 4
5. Press the power button, TV should turn on.

At this point the PIN should be reset to four zeros.

If that doesn't work, you could have someone mess with the internal circuits as someone else posted, but I wouldn't recommend trying it yourself.

Or you could call the Samsung tech support hotline at 1-800-726-7864. Never tried it so I don't know how good their customer support is.

TV power button on my RCA True Flat 27" screen TV


RCA TVs come with a child lock capability called V-Chip. It's a parental control system which allows you to block programs and films by content, age-based ratings and the ratings which come with the movies. The parental control is a code, sent by the broadcaster to your television. The V-Chip will not work if the broadcaster doesn't send the control, or if the parental controls are switched off or unlocked. The controls are set up in the TV's main menu. The default is off.
From the main menu choose "Parental Controls;" it's option six.
Choose the first option, V-Chip TV Rating Limit, and using the arrow keys and the OK button on the remote, scroll through until the TV-MA rating appears. Press the right arrow button to move the highlight over to the "Status" field and toggle to "View." Press the OK button. This will set the age-based ratings to Mature.
From the Parental Controls menu, select the second option, V-Chip Movie Ratings Limit and change the rating to TV_MA and the "Status" to "View."
From the Parental Controls menu select the third option, V-Chip Unrated Program Block and select item one, which will be "View."
Select the fourth option, which is "Channel Block." Highlight the Channel field and using the channel up and down buttons, go through and check they are all set to 'View." Any set to "Block" will need to be toggled back to View.
Lock the controls to activate the changes using item six on the "Parental Controls" menu.

Somehow the parental lock was put on so I can only watch pg rated movies. How do I unlock it???


Hello

Most RCA TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset is different depending on the model. Try each number until you find the one that works for you.

1. Hold down the MENU button on the remote and VOLUME DOWN button on the TV it's self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked

2. Hold down the 0 (zero) button on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN button on the TV itself at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked

3. Hold down the MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. 4- Hold down GO BACK button on the remote and MENU button on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.

4. Hold down EJECT button on the front of the TV set and the MENU button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. Depending on the model, one of the methods should unlock the V-chip. Now, if desired, you can change the settings on the V-chip by going to the MENU and going to PARENTAL CONTROLS, or on some sets, going to MENU and then going to TV SETUP, then to V-CHIP SET.

Any one amoung the above process will unlock your GE TV. After unlock, you have to do the Vchip-Set.
OK

V-chip activated


Hit the Menu button on the TV. 2. 'INPUT SECRET No.' should appear. 3. Press and hold both VOL (+) and CH DOWN (9) on the TV set simultaneously until the message 'INPUT SECRET No.' disappears. 4. The vchip settings should be disabled now and the Parental controls menu should be presented, 'disable' Status if need be.

    V-chip or parental control


    SETTING V-CHIP
    This TV is fitted with a V-CHIP controller which provides you with channel viewing access controls
    and restrictions. This function is to prevent your children from watching violence or sexual scenes
    that you may choose to exclude.
    Press the MENU button and press the SET + or – button to select the V-CHIP SET option,
    then press the ENTER button.
    Enter your password (4 digits) using the Direct channel selection buttons (0-9).
    In the event of entering incorrect password press the RESET button. Then press the
    ENTER button.
    Enter the same password for confirmation, then press the ENTER button.
    Press the SET + or – button to select the V-CHIP option.
    Press the ENTER button to select the ON.
    Press the SET + or – button to select the TV RATING or MOVIE RATING option. Press
    the ENTER button.
    Press the SET + or – button to select the desired rating for the applicable video or TV
    channel. Press the ENTER button.

    And to change or put in a new password:
    NOTES:
    • If you want to change password, follow steps 1 and 2 and select "CHANGE PASSWORD"
    option then enter your new password.
    • The V-Chip function is activated only on programs and tapes that have the rating signal.
    • Once you block a program using the V-Chip function, the blocked program cannot be watched
    based on the content of the show. When the program starts, the "INPUT PASSWORD" will
    appear on the screen. When you want to release the V-Chip temporarily, enter the password.
    If you change the channel or turn off the TV while the V-Chip function was temporarily released,
    the original setting will be resumed. If you return to the channel you were watching you must
    re-enter your password to temporarily release your V-Chip function again.
    • When you watch the TV from the cable box or the VCR with the RF Modulator, then you release
    the V-Chip temporarily, the V-Chip setting will not be resumed until you turn off the TV. The
    TV channel is not used in this case.
    • When changing the channel with the cable box or the VCR, approximately 10 seconds will
    pass until the program appears.
