No. you are a child that wants to watch bad shows huh? well you are on the internet so do it here.

by the way, the "v chip" is just a basic programming in the computer so you cant actually take a chip out.

Do i unlock the front panel lock on a RCA 27V55OT


Most RCA sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset is different depending on the model. Try each number until you find the one that works for you.

1. Hold down the MENU button on the remote and VOLUME DOWN button on the TV it's self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked

2. Hold down the 0 (zero) button on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN button on the TV itself at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked

3. Hold down the MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. 4- Hold down GO BACK button on the remote and MENU button on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
Hold down EJECT button on the front of the TV set and the MENU button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. Depending on the model, one of the methods should unlock the V-chip. Now, if desired, you can change the settings on the V-chip by going to the MENU and going to PARENTAL CONTROLS, or on some sets, going to MENU and then going to TV SETUP, then to V-CHIP SET.

TV has no picture or sound. Was working fine then suddenly went black. Slight smell or something burning and just a clicking sound inside TV now. Any thoughts?


if it is 46F500 UNPLUG SET and remove back cover--on far right side as you look from the back you should see either two smaller or one very large heat sink with fins--the set listed has either one or two STK-392-110 OR STK-392-150 CONVERGENCE CHIPS.

Near them you will see about 12 resistors--look to see if any are burnt or slightly discolored in the middle---you have to look close at them--they can all be checked like checking a fuse--no reading and one is gone----


Point here is if any are bad or smoked--one of the convergence chips got them----the only other way to prove or disprove this is to get at the chips and un-solder all 18 pins on each chip--if set turns on--one is bad and BOTH NEED to be replaced along with any bad resistors--if you smelled something--something toasted--- these resistors are FLAMEPROOF or metal oxide--they will not catch on fire, just pop and go instantly.

Let me know what you find and I will help you--I am here to help people---If this helps you rate this solution as I do this here for free.

Orion tv model 1934 only 3, 4 and aux no pic or sound!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Turn the set on, hook the cable directly to the TV, take the remote control and press 1 - 1 and if the TV tunes in channel 11 then your set is fine. If the TV was autoprogrammed when hooked to a cable box then the only channels that will be stored in memory are 3, maybe 4 and AUX. To correct this simply go back into the menu and look for the "autoprogram" option and perform the autoprogram while the cable is directly connected to the TV, without a cable box.

Parental and v-chip on and my remote is gone


Sooner or later you'll get to a point when not having a remote will get to be too annoying, so better get one now and take care of this problem. Also Emerson advice users not to use universals. Theres a way that might help you reset the system, i'm not sure it will reset the V-chip as well, but no harm trying. unplug the unit from the power line, and wait a good while before plugging it back. this resets some settings for sure, but it might be that the V-chip stores its settings differently. Then also check to see if there's any batteries supplying a small current for other settings memory, scour the face of the unit for a battery compartment and if you find one remove it for a while. Otherwise, you could try removing the V-chip. But i won't advice you to do that, opening tv's is kind of dangerous, and go find it in there... lol anyway, if you do manage to cancel it you wont be able to turn it back on, so unless you're content to keep the set in your bedroom locked, or let your kids have some fun, i suggest you go through the trouble of getting the remote. Maybe tell your kids that if they find the remote you'll go easy on them, let them watch some porn once in a while, you probably wont have to wait more then an hour before its in your hand, and find your lost golf clubs on the way... ;] good luck!
