This is called a Vchip and the only way unlocking those is with repair. $75 bucks respectivly to reset a vchip. This is not something you can but a defualt code into so do not be fooled by anyone that tells you otherwise. I seen allot of people on fixya that had this same issue and resulted in using the RCA inouts so the vchip does not block you. /So the fix here is two fold.
2. use the inputs with a cable box and you will be fine.
Most Tube tv's like this do not have a digital tuner anyhow so there is really no need all you need to do is by a OTA over the air digital tuner about $60 bucks or subsicribe to cable and hook this up to its inputs.
Thanks please do consider that you got this solution for free when you a rating me today. Please also leave feedback if you will, Thanks
Symptom: TV shuts off unless all the input (phono and HDMI) cables are disconnected. The symptom may be intermittent. Cause: There is an abnormal AC voltage entering the TV from one of the input cables or AC outlet. Remedy: Follow the Testing procedure to determine if there is a problem external to the product.
Concept Constant symptom If the TV no longer shuts off when all input cables are disconnected, then one of the input cables is introducing abnormal voltages into the TV. Panasonic Plasma TV sets have 3 wire AC plugs. As a result, abnormal voltages introduced into this TV will cause the TV to shut off for protection. Intermittent symptom If the abnormal input voltage is borderline (marginal), the TV shut off symptom may be intermittent. However the cause may still be detectable with a voltmeter. Protection Proof: Release the protect mode - the TV has to be unplugged to reset this protection circuit.
Threats from the HDMI input: Excessive voltage from an HDMI cable connected product will activate the Plasma TV’s protection circuitry. Placing an isolating / buffering connector (sometimes called a voltage conditioner) between the TV and the HDMI input cable often solves the problem. Testing - Unplug all the HDMI inputs from the TV. Turn on the TV. Plug in the HDMI inputs one at a time. The cable that causes the TV to enter the protection state is connected to the product that has the excessive voltage (and signal). Avoid connecting this product until an isolating connector is found.
I own a One-for-All universal remote, and my booklet says the setup code for a Durabrand TV (without a built-in DVD or VCR) is one of the following numbers: 0171, 0178, 0180, 0463, 1034. I can not guarantee that these numbers will work with your remote, but it is worth a try.
I seem to be the only person on the net with the 3 digit Durabrand universal remote code which works for 13' and up Durabrand TV's and TV/DVD TV/VCR combos. The culprit is 3 digit code 189 for a Funai and Emerson. I only know this because I have like 4 of these TV's haha.
Turn the set on, hook the cable directly to the TV, take the remote control and press 1 - 1 and if the TV tunes in channel 11 then your set is fine. If the TV was autoprogrammed when hooked to a cable box then the only channels that will be stored in memory are 3, maybe 4 and AUX. To correct this simply go back into the menu and look for the "autoprogram" option and perform the autoprogram while the cable is directly connected to the TV, without a cable box.
