Question about Philips Magnavox 27MS343S 27" TV
Put on child lock by mistake and i think the sencor on the tv doesn't work or maybe it the remote control. How can i put it on if the sencor doesn't work and the remote controle as i said maybe gone. Is there anyway way to rest the tv? thanks dldkdillslsk
You will for sure need to borrow a remote from someone to do this. But I will give you the way to unlockit just in case you can get one. Philips sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The override code for Philip sets is 0711, although it may say "Incorrect code" the first time to trick you. If "Incorrect code" is displayed, simply enter 0711 again. To use it hit the MENU key to get to the menus. Go up or down until you reach AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK, depending on the model, and push the "right arrow" key on the remote. Enter the override code, and enter it a second time if it says it is incorrect. Once in the AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK menu, go to BLOCK, and push the "right arrow" key. Go to BLOCKING OPTIONS and press the "right arrow" key. Go to MASTER DISABLE and press the "right arrow" key so that it says "MASTER DISABLE ON". The v-chip is now reset. Good Luck

I have the same problem. It isn't the v-chip lock; its the lock that stops the buttons from the front of the tv from working. I, too, have lost the original remote, and we have ironically re-set/lost the code for the universal remote. Magnavox help has said "sorry, if you can't turn your tv on, we can't help" Is there a way to override the child lock with out using the remote? Or a way to turn the tv on with out the remote or the front button? Once my tv is on, then we are golden.
