I cant watch any dvds on my dvd player as their is a parental lock on there, i have tried unlocking it but i need a code which i dont have, the model is a sony RMT-D175P

OK - to switch off the parental control on the Sony DVP-NS15 and reset the password, please do the following:

1. Switch on the TV and the DVD player
2. Set the TV to the correct input for the DVD player so you can see the on-screen menu
3. Remove any disc from the player and close the disc drawer
4. Press the DISPLAY key on the Sony remote control to open the on-screen menu
5. Use the DOWN arrow to highlight the disc and padlock (parental control) then press ENTER
6. Use the DOWN arrow to highlight ON> then press ENTER

You will be asked to enter a password. Press 1 9 9 7 0 3 then press ENTER. Don't worry that it's only asking for four numbers, you need to enter all six. After you enter the master password, you will be asked to set a new password. Set this to something easy to remember, e.g. 0000 then press ENTER and confirm the password.

Finally, if you don't want to use the parental control feature you need to switch it off. If asked for the password again, enter the new password you set.

7. Use the arrow keys to highlight OFF> and press ENTER
8. Press the UP arrow to highlight PLAYER> and press ENTER
9. Highlight LEVEL and use the arrow keys to set this to OFF
10. Press the DISPLAY key again to close the menu

If you have any difficulty unlocking the player, please let me know.

When i turn on the tv its just a blue screen

turn it to channel 3 then flip through the stations. if you dont have your cable hooked up to the tv hook it up and it should work fine.

Child lock
- Parental control
- V-Chip

Often those lock require a password that is by default "0000"

From a research i did, it seem it might be cleared by holding the diplay button on the remote for 10-15 seconds.
please specify your tv model number and are you getting a red lock symbol for further queries

Akai color tv was working fine but when cable went digital the (v-chip 4 code blocker) kicked on blocking with a black box covering 3/4 of the blue screen.It is scanning for a four digit code.*We can not...

It sounds more like you have the closed caption selected in the customer menu - you might check that first.. If not you can easily contact Akai customer service at for any issue including a replacement owner's manual...
Hope this helps!

Tv got a mind of it own

To unlock the V-chip on any tv you must contact the Manufacture of the tv by their 1800 number and if this tv has a built in Dvd player, universal remotes will not code to the tv due to it being a 2 in 1 model. Most Direct tv services also cant program their remotes to these tvs due to the same nature.

Give Akai a call on their 1800- and see if they can go over their process of how to remove the v-chip lock. And get a estimate on a replacement remote.
