    So i'm looking at the replacement remote now. It isn't a universal remote, but it also dosen't say "Mitsubishi" on in. I guess the brand is "Anderic". I bought it from a website and it said that it was a replacement for the specefic brand and model number of my TV. But it is kinda cheap looking and i know it isn't as heavy as the original one. Do you know where i can get a true "Mitsubishi" brand replacement remote for my tv? The tv is 14 years old and it still works fine expept for it's locked, and i can't get it unlocked. And the store i bought the remote from isn't even in business anymore. Any advice??
    Thanks

Hi,

If you forget the code, you can view the locked TV without entering the code.
To do this, simply press the buttons on your remote labeled "QV"
and "9"
at the same time whenever your secret code is requested.

NOTE: These button should be pressed exactly at the same time whenever your secret code is requested.

IMPORTANT:

Unlocking with this procedure is only temporary. To cancel the lock
completely, follow the procedure below

1) Turn on your TV. If the TV requests your secret code, press the "QV" button and the "9" button on the remote control at the same time.

2)Press the MENU button to view the main menu. Use the ADJUST button to select "Advanced" Features". Press ENTER/EXCH.

3) Use the ADJUST button to select "Use Parental Lock". Press
ENTER/EXCH.

4) Press press the "QV" button and the "9" button on the remote control at the same time, instead of entering the code.

5) If you were using "Lock the TV", the lock must be turned off. Using
the ADJUST up/down buttons, select the "Off" setting.
6) If you were using the "Lock the Channel", use the ADJUST up/down buttons to place the cursor next to the channel whose lock you want to turn off. Press ENTER/EXCH.

7) Press the CANCEL button to unlock that channel or use the ADJUST up/down buttons to change the channel to a new one.

8) Press the MENU button to return to the "Advanced Features".

IMPORTANT

YOU MUST USE THE REMOTE CONTROL INCLUDED WITH THIS TV. YOU CANNOT US A REMOTE CONTROL FROM ANOTHER MITSUBISHI COMPONENT AND YOU CANNOT USE "UNIVERSAL" REMOTES FROM OTHER MANUFACTURERS.

IF YOU LOST YOUR REMOTE. PLEASE PURCHASE THE SAME MODEL AND NOT EQUIVALENT MODEL.

please leave me comment, if you need further assistance

Hello
I thinks that you have its original remote handset with you now, and posts this solution. If you don't have it, either buy a new original remote handset or try to get it from any of your friends and relatives, who owns the same model of Mitsubishi Tv, you have now; only to unlock it. After unlock, you can use any other remote control.
Mitsubishi sets use a four-digit code for a V-Chip locked program, view a locked TV, cancel the lock, or to enter the V-Chip lock menus. You can view the locked shows on the TV set by pressing the number 9 and QV buttons on the remote at the same time, whenever your code is requested. This process temporarily unlocks the TV and asks you to enter a new code.
OK.

I locked my tv because of kids and now i dont remember the passcode


I can only assume that you are not the kids trying to get into the set.
You must have the original Mitsubishi remote control to perform this operation on the set. Look on the remote for a button that is labeled QV (Quick View), if you have this button on the remote then we can press on. Go to the selected channel or input that is asking for the unlock code. When it asks for the code, press the QV button: Holding it down press the number 9 and release. This will unlock the set for this instance. To remove the code I suggest that you go through the setup menu and find the code lock and when it asks for the code use the QV+9 trick again to turn it off from the main menu.

If you do not have the original Mitsubishi remote you will not be able to try this trick. You will have to order a replacement remote from 1-800-REMOTES or www.remotes.com.
Once you have the replacement remote you can unlock the television and be back on your way.
If you have any more quesitons please feel free to reply to this post.
I hope that this helps you with your television lock issues and as always, Thank you for using FixYa.
