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.

How do I change Parental Control on ROKU?


Parental control is one of the features available on roku. This feature restricts the children to access the movies and TV shows based on the rating of the movies and TV shows.
Roku doesn't provide any true parent controls. But the parental control workaround is simpler one. Only a few channels on roku have the parent control. Such channels are Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, and Redbox.
Initially, you have setup your roku account and add the channels from the channel store by using the PIN.
    1.Sign in to your roku.com/link account.
    2.Click the update button which is next to the PIN reference.
    3.Then choose the choice "A PIN is required when using your Roku account to make the purchase or add any item from the Channel Store."
    4.Put the 4-digit PIN and save the changes. After that, you can watch the channel by installing them from the roku channel store.
    After finishing the watching the channels delete it.
    If you deleting the paid channels means there are no issues because you need not pay again for reinstall. For re-install it you have to sign in again.
    For some channels which have parental control, that doesn't require to delete the channel after watching.
    If you want more information about the roku call 1-844-965-4357 to get instant help.

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.

Parental Control Feature on the PS2


3 answers for the price of one. Start a DVD, bring up the menu with select, and then go to Setup. It's in there. To get it to actually save, eject and take out the DVD (kicking it back to the setup screen) before you turn the power off when you are watching any dvd, hit select on the controller to bring up the onscreen menu. on the menu, under the number 7, there is a icon called setup. click it. hit right on the digital pad (on the controller) two times and you will be at custom setup. now, go down to the parental controll part and set it up to your liking. While in the "custom settings/parental control" options press SELECT and enter the 4-digit number "7444" whenever the parental control display asks you for your password. the old password will then be deleted.
