To change this, you need to access the Digital Menu, Setup, Parental Lock and turn the lock for PG off. Or enter the 0000 code.

Hi i have a samsung tv n im with bell but i forgot my password for parental control... help??!!


The child lock on a TV can be a wonderful thing. A parent sometimes cannot be present for the duration of a kids' show, so the child lock ensures they can't watch programs that are off limits. The lock can, however, cause unwanted trouble--if it gets accidentally turned on and you don't know the code, you can find yourself unable to fully enjoy the full range of available television stations. Follow a few easy steps you'll be back to watching regular TV in no time. Instructions Locate the manual for your television. Though slightly embarrassing, accidentally turning on the child lock to a TV is a common problem. The section In the manual about how to set the child lock feature will also explain how to unlock it. Try a few "universal methods" for unlocking the child lock. Some televisions have a universal code built in for disabling the child lock --no matter what your code is. A common code is "0000." Unplug your television for a few minutes. The internal battery of the TV is what helps remember what your code. If the TV is unplugged for an extended period of time, it clears the internal memory, which in turn will reset your child lock code.

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.
