The 5898 and 1234 password did not work! I've contacted the service center with the hope of resolving this issue... time will tell.

Now I know your calling the service center, but this may help. Usually TV manufacturers hide the V-Chip or Partental Lock/Block code somewhere on the rear of the TV (it might be in small wirting), or in the manual (deep in the manual, or on the inner-back of it). So try one of those places, and you might just find it!

Problems with V-Chip/Parental Controls
The rating limits don’t work
• For rating limits to take effect, you must lock V-Chip settings to activate them.
I don’t remember my password and I want to unlock the TV
• If you forget your password you can reset it. Enter 5898 as the password and then change it
to a new one.
