A model number for your Magnavox TV would be helpful because the Parental Control Reset procedure varies. There should be a sticker on the back of the TV showing the model number. If you have a newer LCD model, the unlock code is usually 0711. Ignore any "Incorrect" warning and enter 0711 again. Then set or clear the Parental Access Code.

    You will probably have to perform all three steps below. Just follow the steps carefully and you should be up and running again. Thanks for the model number.

    1) To reset/change the SMART LOCK code, follow these steps.

    Press the MENU button on the remote to display the on-screen menu.

    Press the Cursor Up (also known as CH + button, above menu button) or Cursor Down (CH - below the menu button) to highlight SMART LOCK. Then press the Cursor Right (VOL + button to right of menu button) to display the SmartLock ACCESS CODE screen.

    Using the numbers on the remote keypad, enter 0 7 1 1. " INCORRECT CODE" will appear on the screen. Enter the code 0 7 1 1 again.

    Cursor Down to CHANGE CODE and enter 0 7 1 1 and then CONFIRM CODE and enter 0 7 1 1.

    Press the STATUS / EXIT button (left of CH +) to save the new code in memory.

    2) If the grandkids have locked out any channels, then you will have to perform the following steps:

    Press MENU, highlight SMART LOCK, right arrow, enter 0 7 1 1, confirm by entering 0 7 1 1 again.
    Cursor to BLOCKING OPTIONS, right arrow, and highlight CLEAR ALL, right arrow.

    You should then see CHANNEL....ALL, LOCK....YES, ALL UNLOCKED.

    3) To turn SMART LOCK off, follow these steps.

    Press MENU, highlight SMART LOCK, right arrow, enter 0 7 1 1, confirm by entering 0 7 1 1 again.
    Cursor to BLOCKING OPTIONS, right arrow, and highlight BLOCKING OPTIONS, right arrow,
    MASTER DISABLE. Use Cursor Right (VOL +) or Cursor Left (VOL -) to select OFF.

    You should see MASTER DISABLE....ON (which means SMART LOCK is turned off.)

  • Marc Gautreaux Sep 08, 2007

    Oops, correction to step 3)

    ....MASTER DISABLE. Use Cursor Right (VOL +) or Cursor Left (VOL -) to select ON (not the typo OFF.)

    You should see MASTER DISABLE....ON (which means SMART LOCK is turned off.)

Magnavox tv model # 13mt1532-17. Need code to disable the smart lock system. Can you help?


Hello
I assumes that you did gorget the code that you have set to Smart lock, and posts this solution.
If you ever forget you smartlock code, enter [ 0,7,1,1 ] code is the factory default, and can be used to enter and create a new acess code. OK.

My Magnovox TV has smart lock and we do not have the code please help


Hello Thomas,

The code for disabling "SmartLock" on this TV (Magnavox 20MS2331/17) is definitely 0711

However, you will need to enter this code twice.

1. When the TV asks for the Access Code, enter 0 7 1 1 using the numerical keys on the remote;
2. "INCORRECT CODE" will appear on the TV screen after entering the code.

This is just a trick - an addition part of the security system.

3. Enter 0 7 1 1 again. The TV will now unlock.

This code is the default code and also the override code should a personal code ever be set and forgotten. This code cannot be removed. It simply needs to be entered twice. If you are not getting the message "INCORRECT CODE" on the TV screen after entering the code the first time, then it would appear that your remote control is not working.

Please try again and make sure you are entering the code twice. If it still wont unlock - or you are not getting the "INCORRECT CODE" message on the TV screen, please let me know.

I may also be able to supply a new user manual for this TV if you do not have one. Please let me know if you would like one.

Regards,
BElectric

Need Unlock channels


I called Philips Magnavox at 1 888 744 5477 and they told me the default ACCESS CODE number is 0711. It works on my TV though it didn't solve MY problem of the TV defaulting to Chanel 9 every time I turn it on. Drats. Hope this helps.
