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.)

My akai tv is locked,don't know the code


Most TVs have a parental control lock that can be set to prevent children from watching specific television shows. In order to activate or deactivate the controls, you need to know the four digit security code or parental lock control password. If you forget the number you chose or if the lock gets set accidentally, it is still possible to unlock the TV.
Instructions

Turn on the TV and grab the remote. In most cases, you will need the original remote to unlock the TV if you aren't sure of the unlock code. If you don't have the original remote, you will need to purchase one.

Look at the screen. If you see a blank screen with a red key on the bottom of the screen, press 'Function' and 'Mute' at the same time. This should unlock the channel. This is an option for people who want the TV to stay locked but, want to be able to bypass the lock to watch a certain show or channel. All other channels will remain locked and the TV will fully lock when it is turned off.

Unlock all of the channels on the TV by entering the factory reset code. There are three main reset codes that TV manufacturers set. These are 0711, 6688 and 3308. Try each one until you find the one that works. This will reset the TV to original factory settings. When you do this, you will loose any information that you have stored in the TV, such as favorite channels, automatic timers and the clock. You will have to go through the full initial set up.

Call the technical support service number in your owner's manual if none of those codes work. A technician can help you troubleshoot the television because the problem may not be the locking control. When you call, make sure that you have the model number and serial number of the TV.

Take your television to a TV repair shop. In some cases, a professional who access to wiring diagrams for your television set may have to rewire certain components in order for the television to unlock. This is usually the case when the TV locks by itself while it is on.

Smart Lock Magnavox TV


Magnavox 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.
