If it's the remote control that's locked, you can remove the batteries for about 30min. This should erase whatever lock has been put in place. If the lock is on the cable box, then you can contact the cable provider, explain your situation and ask for the lock to be removed. Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

Child Lock

Combos
--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.
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 am trying to play a dvd and it is asking me for a code or password, I never set one I have played the dvd player before, so this is a puzzle.


There are a few different "default" codes that you can try.

0000 or 1111 or 1234 or 9876 etc.

Here is something that i just came across, I do not know if it will work but it maybe worth a try:

1. Turn the DVD player on with No Disc in.
2. Press MENU on the remote (Ignore the 'NO' symbol that appears)
3. With the remote, press 1, then press 9 (Ignore the 'NO' symbol that appears)
4. A menu should appear.
5. Use the Down Arrow to highlight the PARENTAL CC then press ENTER. Now type the Parental Control setting you want with the remote (8 is the highest setting, press 8 on the remote for a fully unlocked player). Then press ENTER on the remote after entering your new setting.
6. Use the Down Arrow to highlight the PARENTAL PW. If you wnat to change this, press ENTER. You can enter any 4-digit code here. Press ENTER on the remote after you enter the 4-digit code.
7. To exit the menu and save your settings and push OPEN/CLOSE with the remote.

Original xbox parental controls


You need to have the DVD dongle that plugs into the front of the Xbox in order to play DVD's. If you do have that, any universal remote should work on it, I use a GE AllinOne universal with mine, I think the program code is 000 or 0000.

Or, if its the lock thats getting you down...

Here is the procedure to reset the parental lock code:

  1. From the XBOX dashboard screen, go to settings and then parental control.
  2. When prompted for the password, perform the following sequence using the XBOX controller: X, Y, Left Trigger, X.
  3. Enter in a new password, or disable parental control entirely.
Hope this helps!

Parental control code


ok first go to the DVD setup which should be located near the bottom of the remote is says SETUP. Then it will give you a list of options go to the one with the parental code one. Then you should try and change the password. My tvs old password was 8888 but I am not sure if it is the same on all tv's. If it is right then you should be able to change the password to whatever you want! I hope this helps anyone who sees this response!

How do you reset the parental control code?


Called Zenith.  They said: turn on the DVD player.  Hit "set-up". Scroll down to the "lock" icon.  Scroll over to "Rating". Scroll over to unlock.  Enter 0000.  Click on Ok.  Enter 0000 again, click Ok again.  Menu should read unlock.  Voila!
