How do i disable the child lock

Many Jensen TVs have a parental lock that can be set to stop children from watching certain television shows or channels. In order to activate or deactivate the controls, you have to know the four-digit code or parental lock passcode. If you forget the passcode or if the lock gets set accidentally, you can still unlock the TV.

Turn on the TV using the remote control. In most cases, you will need the original Jensen remote to unlock the TV if you aren't sure of the unlock code. You can purchase an original replacement online if necessary.

• Look at the screen. If you see a red key on the bottom of the screen, press "Function" and "Mute" on the remote at the same time. This will unlock the channel. Do this if you want to bypass the lock to watch a certain show or channel while leaving the TV locked. All other channels will remain locked and the TV will lock again when it is turned off.

• Unlock all of the channels on the TV by entering 0711 or 3308. These are the Jensen factory reset codes that will reset the TV to the original factory settings. By doing this, you will loose any information that you have stored in the TV, such as channel labels and schedules. You will have to program the TV again by going through the entire initial set up.

•Call the technical support service number in your owner's manual if neither of those codes work. A technician can help you troubleshoot the television as the problem may not be the parental lock feature. Have the model number and serial number of the TV available when you call.
• Take your television to a TV repair shop if neither of the codes work and the TV locked by itself while it was turned on. In this case, the TV may need to be rewired

Want to reset the v-chip on my 2001orion tv model # 1933

Omni TVs have a child lock that allows parents to prevent children from watching specific channels or television shows with certain ratings. To activate or deactivate the controls, you need the four digit pass code. If you forget the pass code or if the lock gets set accidentally, you can still unlock the TV.
• Use the original Omni remote control to turn on the TV. You need the original remote to bypass the child lock. A universal remote won't work.
Check the screen. If you see a blank screen with a red key on it, press the "Function" and "Mute" buttons at the same time. This unlocks only the channel that is on the TV. All the other channels will remain locked and the TV will lock again when it is turned off.

• Unlock all of the channels on the TV by entering "6688," which is the factory reset code. This code resets the TV to original factory settings. Once this is done, you will have to go through the initial setup.

• Call Omni technical support at (416) 260-0047. A technician can help you troubleshoot the television as the problem may not be the child lock. You'll need to know the model number and serial number of the TV.
•Take your television to a TV repair shop if you are still unable to unlock the TV. The problem may be with the wiring, so the repairman may have to rewire the TV

I have an LG tv..which is child locked..

You cannot unlock the TV without the remote. It will require a numeric password that you gave it and that can be only done with the remote. You can get a universal remote to do this without waiting for a replacement from LG/ZENITH

Parental lock

Child Lock

--Should have original remote. Press and hold the power button for 6 to 10 seconds

Combo Model T25208, V-Chip Forgotten Password
If you forget your password, simultaneously press VOLUME down on the TV/VCR front panel and the 0 number button on the remote for a few seconds. This resets the password and you can enter a new one.

Combo Model 13TVR62, V-Chip Forgotten Password
If you forget your password, press STOP/EJECT on the TV/VCR front panel and MENU on the remote simultaneously. This resets the password, but not the limits you’ve set.
Televisions with Parental Lock Feature

If you forgot your password for this feature, press the following buttons on the remote, one at a time. (Note: You must be in the password entry screen) Press, Mute, Display,Clear and Reset, this unlocks parental controls and you can now re-enter a new password.
Press and hold Menu on the TV AND volume down on the remote for 3 seconds. Nothing will appear on the screen, and the Parental Controls will unlock, and you can re-enter a new password with the LOCK PARENTAL CONTROLS

Channels that have been locked can be viewed only when the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to OFF. This can only be done with the remote control-it can not be changed with the buttons on the front of the TV.

Therefore, after you turn on PARENTAL CTRL, you simply hide the remote control so that your children can not watch the locked channels. The locked-out channels will remain unviewable even if the TV is unplugged or the channels are autoprogrammed again. The only way to view locked channels is to use the supplied remote control to set the PARENTAL CTRL function to OFF.

The PARENTAL CTRL and the CHAN CTRL functions work hand-in-hand. The instructions below will first tell you how to turn parental control on or off with the PARENTAL CTRL function and then how to lock desired channels with the CHAN CTRL function.
1. Repeatedly press MENU to select SETUP MENU, and then press + or - to display setup functions. Repeatedly press MENU to select the PARENTAL CTRL function. . When this function is set to ON, PARENTAL CTRL is activated and any channels you locked with the CHAN CTRL function will not be viewable. . When this function is set to OFF, PARENTAL CTRL is deactivated and all channels are viewable.

2. To lock channels, press the MENU button to select the CHAN CTRL function. Select a channel you want to lock by pressing CHANNEL up or down. Then press +. The CHAN CTRL setting will change from NORMAL to LOCKED when that channel is locked. To return the channel to NORMAL, press the - button. Repeat step 2 for each channel you want to lock. If the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to ON while you are locking out channels, each channel will go blank as you lock it. When the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to ON and a channel which has been locked out is tuned, the TV will display the words PARENTAL CONTROL to let your kids know you have locked it.

If the front panel function buttons don't work, (menu, ch up/dn etc.) but the functions work normal with the remote, enter the "Channel" menu with the remote and turn "Parental Control" off.

In the event you have forgotten your password, perform the following procedure:
Press and hold for 3 seconds the TV button on the remote while pressing the menu button on the TV.
This procedure will turn off the parental lock and erase the previous password .

Another Possibility To Try For Various Models: If TV's in the Parental mode and askes for a password that's forgotten, Press menu on the TV, select Parental Lock #4 on menu, then with the remote press Mute, Display, Clear, and Reset buttons in sequence.

TX808 Chassis
If Parental Controls have been set and you don't know the password, do this:
Press and hold the volume down and the channel up buttons at the same time for 5 seconds.
Now you can reset the password to 0000, and using that password you can now access the V-Chip menus.

TV's (Made by Daewoo or possibly Apex, ie. GE model 24GP653)
The factory default pass code of 6688 is also the override code, in case the owner forgets their pass code. If that doesn't work, another place in the owners manual says to push Function and Mute on the remote at the same time. Function is the top right button.
