Question about Sanyo DWM400 DVD Player

1 Answer

I can't find the password to set up my TV guardian. When I try to turn it on, it asks me for a password and I never set one up since I bought it. Where do I find this password?

    According to the user manual, the password is set to 0000 by default (all zeroes). You may change the password under Parental settings. Here's an added note: If you forget the password... In ?NO DISC? mode, enter [+10], [+10], [+10], [+10], even if 4 digits ?XXXX? appears. It returns to ?0000? (Initial setting). See the left column to set the password and parental lock level again.

Re-posting the solution (I marked it as a clarification request-my mistake).

Hope this helps!

Dvd player will not allow dvd to play because of tv guardian. we did not put this on the player. little neice was playing with controller but player was off at the time so why does the player not play dvd?


Make sure that both the parental controls on your TV as well as your DVD are disabled if present, then try again. This time choose a password so that your niece cannot change the settings.

TV Guardian menu won't come up after hooking up DTV converter box


You may want to check the digital converter boxes and make sure they have analog pass through, it should be listed on the box or the instructions. My Magnavox and Zenith which were bought about a year ago, do not have analog pass through.

Tv guardian


I just had the same problem and stumbled across this solution:
If this is a sanyo dvd player try this:
Enter the set-up menu (there cannot be a disc in the unit to access this menu, simply eject the disc, then enter set-up)
  1. For the password enter 788444 (even if there is only room for four digits enter all six)
  2. Press enter (the lock should open)
  3. Enter a new four digit code (this will lock it again)
  4. renter the new code to edit the settings
