V chip is a generic word for the chip in your tv that controls what you can watch by the ratings. This is used by parents to restrict what programs thier children can watch. You can access this settings in the menu of your tv.

My television shows a small line not a full screen


If its a horizontal line in the middle of the screen do not switch on the TV till you fix it. It means you have lost the vertical amplifier IC ( chip ). If you continue to turn on the TV the phosphor in area where the line is coming will get permanently burnt and do not look at the screen it can cause retina ( eye ) damage.
Take professional help to replace the chip.

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.

Hit the Menu button on the TV. 2. 'INPUT SECRET No.' should appear. 3. Press and hold both VOL (+) and CH DOWN (9) on the TV set simultaneously until the message 'INPUT SECRET No.' disappears. 4.

How to Turn off V-chip


I would suggest searching your Menus on the tv for the option to turn it off. Or search your manual.

most cases will have a parental lock on the chip which is set by the owner.

"Each television set’s V-Chip works a little differently. Once you understand the
definition of each rating and content label, programming and activating the V-Chip is
as simple as following the set-up procedure which can be found in one of two places:
1) the television on-screen menu options, or 2) the written instruction guide included in
the owner’s manual. The V-Chip will only be activated if you select the option to do so."

I hope this helps

I need to remove the v chip from my TV, how do I do that?


V-chip is a set of features not a physical chip that can be removed. It is activated by firmware and shows up as menus in the receiver's setup screens.
Dont set it, and it will not activate... or see your manufacturers user manual on steps to re-set.

This happens when the tv cpu detects an internal problem, for example an overvoltage, a short, or a faulty component.
The tv goes in protected mode, and activates a safety switch that turn immediately the tv off, that is what is happening to your tv.

Try unplugging the tv for one hour or so, this will drain power from the unit, and reset the TV chips, in case the TV is "wrong" about the problem.

If it does not works it means that the tv has an internal fault, in this case you may need to call a technician if you want to fix it.

If you need to call a repairman you can use the phone number listed on the owner manual.

Input password


Problems with V-Chip/Parental Controls
The rating limits don’t work
• For rating limits to take effect, you must lock V-Chip settings to activate them.
I don’t remember my password and I want to unlock the TV
• If you forget your password you can reset it. Enter 5898 as the password and then change it
to a new one.
