Parental locks are put in place to stop minors from accessing usuitable programs. An adult usually selects the channels to lock out as well as categories of videos that can be played. Thesae are controlled by a code neterd by the Parent or Giuardian and cannot be subverted without knowing the code. I am tempted to say.... ask your parents for permission to unlock this. We cannot supply any information without proof of age here.

With this model also there are no secret codes listed to over ride an entered password as its not a regular brand of TV. maybe the people you bought it from ( Walmart?) may be able to contact the supplier who rebadged this unit, to help you overcome the problem

Sorry we cant be of more help for you. Please accept our apologies

Thank you for using FIXYA

Hi my TV says input blocked when I set my DVDs player up to it! I don't know the password can someone help plz thanks


It sounds like maybe a "parental control" issue set on the TV. Can you try playing a DVD with a "G" or "PG" rating maybe? Also, if it is a factory set password, try "0000" or something simple like that.

How to reset the parental control code - I forgot the code and want to reset with a new one


This is what I found in the instruction manual on this and I posted it here for you. Try using 3355 for the code and everything else listed here. If that doesn't work, try the very last tip which tells you how to do a factory reset and repeat the first step using the 3355 as the code.

Here's the instructions from manual:

Parental Control
Parental Control allows you to block certain channels or programs so children cannot view
programs that are not age appropriate.
To enter the Parental Control menu, you need an
access code. The first time you enter, use access
code 3355. See "Setting an Access Code" on
page 33 for information on creating a new access
code.
You can set the following options to block
content:
• Channel Lock — Blocks selected channels
• Movie Rating — Blocks movies based on their rating (G, PG, PG-13, R, NC-17, and X)
• TV Ratings — Blocks TV shows based on their rating
• Block Options — Turns on or off all your parental control settings
NOTE: You can use Clear All to unblock the channels and programs that you have set.
NOTE: If the Block Control in the Parental Control menu is enabled, all the sub screens in POP (POP1,
POP3 and POP12) mode will be blank



Setting an Access Code m
After you enter the Parental Control menu for the first time, you can set your own four-digit access
code. If for any reason you lose or forget your access code, you can use the default code.
1 In the Parental Control menu, select Change Code.
2 Using the number pad on the remote control, enter a new access code.
3 Select Exit.




Reset the original factory defaults. Press Menu on the remote
control, select Setup, and then select Factory Reset
