    Sorry, I tried several times and in different ways, but it still did not work.

    I tried it first with no image in the screen, then after it requested me the V-chip code.



    Any other recommendation ? Please, please !

The password can be reset to 0000 by holding
the volume down and channel up buttons for 5 seconds.Then the 0000 password
can be used to access the menu and make changes.

Your RCAs should go from the audio out on the TV to the Aux input on the receiver. put the source selector on the Receiver on aux. that should give you sound. Go to the TV menu and verify that it is set to variable output in the audio settings.
Good Luck!

Zenith PV4663RK Rear Projection TV - Manufactured - Mar. 1995


Hi,

Are you connected to cable TV using a digital receiver? If so, your TV can only get the signal for one channel - the one you're tuned into on your receiver. A workaround is to connect the coax cable TV cable directly to your TV, as well as connecting your receiver to your TV. This will allow you to be able to change the channel on your receiver and be able to change the channel on your TV to one of the analog channels you can tune into by connecting the coax cable directly to the TV.

I cant reset parental controls


Activated by a PIN number, you can set Parental Controls on your TV and/or cable set-top box to control the programs that can be viewed on your TV. There are three ways to block programs:

  • By Channel
  • By Rating
  • By Time Period (Not available in all areas.)
The V-Chip understands television program ratings and blocks programs based upon the rating level selected. All TV sets that are 13 inches or larger are required to incorporate the V-Chip technology. Parents set rating levels so that certain TV shows need a password to be viewed. For more information on the V-Chip and program ratings visit the FCC V-Chip site.
Several cable and satellite companies offer parental control options. They allow specific channels to be blocked so that they cannot be viewed.These companies also offer the ability to block shows based on language, violence, nudity, and rating levels. This offers more flexibility than the V-Chip.

Hope it helps ;-)

Cannot get channels programmed for RCA F27615


The chassis used in this set is one of several that are known for problems caused by bad solder connections. RCA used the metal shield around the tuner section to provide ground connections for several circuits. Cracks develop and all sorts of funny problems start to pop up. Tuning problems such as you describe are one of them. Often the troubles can be fixed by resoldering the required areas. Sometimes the bad connections can lead to failure of the memory chip that stores TV settings and data for the computer, but replacements are easy to find. A TV shop should be able to do the repair for you. RCA had several technical bulletins about this, although they never really admitted it was a design flaw, and there was a class-action lawsuit that resulted in a lot of repairs under an extended warranty.

Connecting Hitachi VCR to my Direct TV.


Connect your Direct TV to the Ant. In connection on your VCR. When you want to watch TV, just tune the TV to channel 3 (or whatever channel the Receiver is set for). When you wish to record, set your VCR to that same channel and set your TV to the channel that your VCR outputs to. For simplicity sake, I would suggest setting both systems to channel 3 and just watching your program through the VCR. If you are still using an "off air" antenna, then connect that antenna to the ANT. IN connection on your Direct TV receiver and when you turn off the dish, it will pass the signal through just like the VCR would.

No picture, blue screen


Use the TV input selector to select the right channel, that should fix it.

Power went out while tv & Direct TV was on


The garbage on your unused channels are not important, just artifacts from signals not strong enough to produce a picture.
The 'blue screen' on #3 is what many sets use when they sense they are connected (terminated) to 'something' but not receiving any signal.

If sounds a lot like DTV's receiver took a hit.

If you have a second set you can borrow or drag to the receiver, try it first but I don't think it is your problem unless the cable input on it was zapped.

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!

I have problem with tv that v-ship and i for got to ask for the pass word got this tv from yard sale please tell me what to do


The V-chip has a 4 digit numerical password in order to keep older children from changing its settings. However, it can be overridden by savvier youth who read the television's manual to find out how to reset the password to 0000 (built into the V-chip in case the parents themselves forget the password that they set). hope this will help.
