How do I remove a Vchip from a Sharp TV no code?

Default code is "0000" on most sharps to enter the V-chip settings. If not you will have to reset the password which is listed in the manual if you have it.
Clearing the password or secert number on newer sharps are as follows.
1. Press MENU to display the MENU screen, and then arrow to "SETUP"
2 . Then select on of the options until the password or secert number input screen dislpays.
3. Press and hold both the "Channel Up" and the "Volume Up" buttons simultaneously until message apperas on the screen. Then you can enter new or leave blank number.

If this doesn't work goto sharps web site and download the manual if available.

Resetting my parental passcode

Hi haventaclue

I searched for your manual but came up empty handed(for free at least). There are places you can pay to download it, but I did find this one, and similar vintage to yours, that has instructions on the parental control. Not sure how to reset the code. I did find this on page 18, it regards setting up a secondary set of blocks. Perhaps you could try that.
• If you intend to change or forget your Secret No., clear the original Secret No. and set
up a new one.
1 Repeat steps 1 to 3 of [1] MPAA RATING, or 1 to 2 of [To cancel
the V-CHIP BLOCK screen while V-CHIP BLOCK has been
activated], then “INPUT SECRET No.” will be displayed.
2 Press and hold both VOL (+) and CH DOWN (9) on the TV set
simultaneously until the message “INPUT SECRET No.”
3 Press MENU two times to exit.

Forgot v-chip code

Sharp has several locking and V-chip commands but one of these three possibilities should work.
Newer Combos With "Time Limiter" Feature
If the "Secret Number" is forgotten, simultaneously press the STOP, RESET, and VOL up buttons on the front panel of the set.
This disables both the "Channel Lock" and the "Time Limiter" features.

CTV's Lock Mode---Blue screen and display says,Parental Control Rating Unknown
Try This: Hold Channel up and down on the set while pluging in AC cord.
Or Try This: On the set, press volume up and channel down at the same time.

CTV's V-Chip Release
When screen asks you to "input secret number" press and hold channel up and down on the TV set until message disappears. Press menu 2 times to exit.
Hope this helps!
