I'm enquiring about the story aired on the evening news last night concerning children scaling a swimming pool gate.

the story is true-- and children have been climbing the pool fences since they came into vogue
In fact a fence to a child is a challenge to be climbed and conquered
They were a total waste of money from the start and it only relieved the parents of the responsibility of constantly watching their children and teaching them swimming lessons

Sansui TV/VCR/DVD combo

This solution is provided by one of our experts premtech

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.

How do I change Parental Control on ROKU?

Parental control is one of the features available on roku. This feature restricts the children to access the movies and TV shows based on the rating of the movies and TV shows.
Roku doesn't provide any true parent controls. But the parental control workaround is simpler one. Only a few channels on roku have the parent control. Such channels are Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, and Redbox.
Initially, you have setup your roku account and add the channels from the channel store by using the PIN.
    1.Sign in to your account.
    2.Click the update button which is next to the PIN reference.
    3.Then choose the choice "A PIN is required when using your Roku account to make the purchase or add any item from the Channel Store."
    4.Put the 4-digit PIN and save the changes. After that, you can watch the channel by installing them from the roku channel store.
    After finishing the watching the channels delete it.
    If you deleting the paid channels means there are no issues because you need not pay again for reinstall. For re-install it you have to sign in again.
    For some channels which have parental control, that doesn't require to delete the channel after watching.
    If you want more information about the roku call 1-844-965-4357 to get instant help.

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

How to set parental block on tv so it cant even be turned on Tv is a proscan 47lb45h

DTV parental controls include blocking of unrated programming, channel-by-channel blocking and blocking by content rating levels. You have control over what information gets displayed on the Electronic Program Guide, and can unlock controls for a particular time frame.

Initially your service uses default settings, which allow access to all programs. Ratings are set from the Main Account. Subaccounts (individual user accounts) can be set up for household members (toddlers, tweens and teens), based on their viewing needs. Once Parental Controls are activated, an icon will appear in the navigation menu.

Parental Control Settings from the Main Account

Press the Menu key on your remote control and arrow to the Settings tab. Press OK on your remote. Enter your Password, arrow to OK and press OK. Arrow to the Parental Control section and highlight Change, press OK. This takes you to the Users tab. Here ratings for Movies, TV and Content are set up along with Unlock Timeout. Each rating has a drop-down menu for age appropriate programming. The Content ratings work in addition to the Movie and TV ratings and let you block unwanted content such as *** or violence.

Tip: The Unlock Timeout lets you deactivate the Parental Controls for 30 minutes to 3 hours and after that time will automatically reactivate parental controls.

To choose your Movie settings, press OK and a drop-down menu will appear. Select the desired rating and press OK. Next you can do the same for TV Ratings, and Unlock Timeout. Arrow to Content Rating. Select the ratings you want to block, press OK and a checkmark will appear. To remove the content rating press OK again. Ensure that the Enable Parental Control box is checked. If it is not checked, Parental Control is not enabled. Arrow to Done and press OK, which takes you back to the Preferences tab. Arrow down to OK and press OK. You will be returned to your program.

NOTE: Any Parental Controls set will only take effect if you check the Enable Parental Controls option on the Main Account and exit the Preferences tab via the OK button. Otherwise, the default setting is in effect, allowing the viewing of all programs regardless of settings for individual user accounts.
How to set up Subaccounts (Individual User Accounts)

Press the Menu key on your remote control and arrow to the Settings tab. Press the Select key on your remote. Input your Password, arrow to OK and press the Select key on your remote. If the electronic keyboard appears, just press the Select key on your remote again. Arrow to the Users tab and press Select. Arrow to Add, press Select. Arrow to New Login and press Select to display a digital keyboard. Use your remote's Arrow keys and the Select key to enter a Login Name. When done, arrow to Enter on the digital keyboard and press Select. The new Login Name will appear in the box.

Arrow to and choose the desired Movie Rating for this User and press Select. Now, arrow to and choose the desired TV Rating and press Select. Arrow to and enter New Password, Select. Arrow to Confirm Password and reenter what you typed in the New Password field, Select. Arrow to Allowance. If you would like to set a spending limit for Pay Per View events and movies, enter the amount and press Select. Arrow down to Submit and press Select. To restore TV viewing, press the Menu button on the remote twice.

I bought a system from a co-worker who up-graded to a PS3... he had a parental block o it for his children... I wanted to watch a DVD on it and it asked for a pass-word... I called my co-worker but he...

Here it is better give me 5 stars for this one :)

Power off your PlayStation 2, and place a DVD into the disc drive. You can reset and turn off parental controls only through the DVD menu, not within the game menu.
  • Step 2 Start the DVD, and wait for the message informing you that the movie is classified as beyond the "Parental Control Level" and asking if you still want to play the movie. Select "Yes," and click "X."
  • Step 3 Click "Select" on the screen that prompts you to input your password. The screen will change to the "Delete Password" menu.
  • Step 4 Enter 7444 as your password, and then click "X." This is the override password and will result in the deletion of any previous passwords.
  • Step 5 Press "Select" to return to the password entry menu. Choose a four-digit number to enter as your new password. If you're going to disable parental controls for good, enter 0000, as this will be the easiest to remember and enter. Repeat the entry when it asks for confirmation.
  • Step 6 Click "Select" when the move begins to play. Use the directional pad to select "Setup" from the menu that appears. Next choose "Parental Controls." Change the level to "Off," and exit the menu. Your parental controls are now turned off.
