If you're referring to the four digit lock code for restrictions? You must call directv to reset this. Only they can do it. There is no setting, reset or otherwise, that will clear this. It is only done through a directv rep by phone.

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.
OR TRY THIS..
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

CTC169AU
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.

CTC185's
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.

CTC203's
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.

I'm using a Time Warner remote as a universal for my TV but when I go to change channels, it just lights up the CBL button and doesn't change the channel. Can I program it to my TV or will it


Hi, you need to de-activate the "programming channel control lock" option. You can see instructions in the manual for the remote. They are as follows:

  1. On the remote control, press CBL once; It will blink once, Press and hold SETUP until the CBL key blinks twice.
  2. Enter 9 7 3. The CBL key will blink twice.
  3. Press CH- once. The CBL key will blink four times.
    Now the remote control will provide TV and VCR channel-control capabilities while in the TV mode.

Parental control code had been changed, don't know what it is now


Hello
Try the following to unlock your Jensen TV.

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.
5. 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.
OK.

How to clear remote so I can program it again


Link to the manual
http://audiovox2.info/docs/rca_acc/man/D770_DOC_OM.PDF

Problem: The remote is not
performing commands properly.
• You must put the remote in the
correct mode by pressing the
corresponding component key (TV,
VCR, DVD, SAT, AUX1, AUX2) so
the remote knows which component
you want to operate.
• Make sure the component is “ready”
(e.g., DVD player has disc loaded;
VCR has tape loaded, etc.).
• You may have pressed an invalid
key for the mode the remote is in
(e.g., the RECORD key only works
in VCR Mode).
• If you are trying to turn on an RCA,
GE or PROSCAN component, press
the component key (TV, VCR, DVD,
SAT, AUX1, AUX2) instead of the
ON·OFF key.
• If you’re trying to change channels,
try pressing the OK key after
entering the channel number as this
is a requirement of certain models
and brands.
*There is a possibility that a
programmed code may only be able
to control some of your component
features (e.g., only turns a
component on and off). Follow the
steps provided for programming the
remote (See Programming sections
on pages 5–7). If the component can
be turned on and off, make sure you
press the CH+/CH- key to see if the
component responds. If not, try the
next code from the list.

Good Luck :)
