Re: Reset V-Chip

Reset the TV by pressing "Action" and "Power" together on the TV itself (not the remote) for at least 5 seconds or until the unit turns off.

My tv volume is locked how i can release panasonic Tc 2101

Try to reset the TV to factory defaults:

1. Get the original Panasonic TV remote control.
2. Press and HOLD the volume-down button on the TV itself (not on the remote)
3. While you're holding the VOL- button on the TV, point the remote to the TV and press OK

This should do a soft-reset (most of your setting will stay).

If this doesn't work, try a full reset: Repeat the above steps; however, press the MENU button on the remote, while holding the VOL- button on the TV.

Note: When you do the full reset, the TV will lose all it's settings and customization that you did. It will go back to its out-of-the-box state.

Bypass V-Chip Mitsubishi TV

Bypassing the V-Chip Lock on most Mitsubishi sets:
Mitsubishi sets use a four-digit passcode that is required to view a V-Chip locked program, view the locked TV, cancel the lock, or enter the V-Chip lock menus.
If you don't have the passcode, it is easy to bypass. This is neccessary if you forgot the code, purchased the set used, or if you simply don't feel like searching through your files to find it.

To bypass the V-chip: You can view the locked shows by pressing the number 9 and QV buttons on the remote at the same time, whenever your passcode is requested. This process temporarily unlocks the TV.

To reset the code: When you use the button combination 9 and QV while entering the V-Chip Lock menu, this process deletes your old passcode and prompts you to enter a new passcode.

Why does my panasonic tc p50st30 tv menu not work, tv will turn on but can not shut it off unless I unplug tv.

I would believe this to be a problem with the lvds cable that goes from your logic board to the main board. If your tv does not have a logic board, then it would have to be incorporated into the main board. A lot of times the connection gets loose on the main to logic board. If you reseat it, it may fix itself. If nothing else, you can pick up a logic board on ebay for around 25 dollars with shipping. It is usually very easy to replace. Most of the time, it's hidden behind the A board known as the Main board. It would probably take less than an hour to put in for someone not familar with the internals of a tv. Just MAKE SURE the tv is NOT plugged into the AC line.

A code was entered on my panasonic tv. i want to get the channel lock off can't remember the code.

There is one way to unlock your Panasonic TV. There is a procedure. Follow it and see whether your set can be unlocked or not. In most Pansonic sets this will work.

Panasonic sets need to be reset to clear the v-chip settings. To do this, put it in standby mode, then press the POWER and ACTION buttons at the same time and then turn the power off. The set should reset to the factory defaults, and reset the v-chip.
You must have its original remote control to do this effective.

Why does your PANASONIC tv ask for a password?

The easiest way is to reset the TV. There are 3 possible resets for this TV. press and hold Action and Power on the TV until self check appears-- then unplug the TV wait for 30 sec. then plug back in. The reset should take care of any channel lock/ game guard settings

Also Volume down on unit and sleep on remote. Same process wait for self check then unplug for 30 sec. plug back in and turn on.

Last Volume down on the unit and RH-Split on the remote-- same process
