Re: lock preventing me from setup menu
Do a hard reset and if it is just a software corruption this will cure
it. Unplug the power cord for 4 hours, then power up again. The reason
for the long DISCONNECT time is to allow internal voltages to discharge
down to absolute zero. Then when the power comes back up it
automatically pulls of the eprom files and loads in the factory preset

Mitsubishi Television asking for an unlock code. Well you locked the set and forgot the code, or someone has locked the code before you got the set. One other scenario is that the code was entered by someone accidentally. Please note: If your parents have locked the television you should not be unlocking something that your parents have blocked. So don’t use these instructions to unlock a television that your parents have locked. 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. I hope that this helps you with your television lock issues and as always, Thank you for using FixYa. asnowman
Hello If you have its original remote control, you can unlock it by one amoung the following methods. If you don't have its original remote control, try to gather it from any of your friends or relatives to get the lock out. Then you can use any other remote controls. Most RCA TV 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.
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
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
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.
4. 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. OK.
As long as you remember the "CODE" The child lock on a TV is a wonderful thing.
The lock sometimes causes unwanted
trouble--if it gets accidentally turned on and you don't know the code,
you can find yourself unable to fully enjoy the full range of available
television stations. Please apply the following possible 5 different solutions taht verified by different users and than hopefully you'll be back to watching
regular TV ....
Bring Up TV Menu ; Power on the television with the activated child lock on. Push
the "Menu" button on the remote control. A series of features appears on
the screen, ranging from the overall TV functions to the video display
and the audio setup features ,Choose "Options" and a new menu
appears on the screen. From the new menu select "Child Lock." The exact
setup selection is going to vary slightly, although the child protection
is always referred to as either "Child Lock" or "V-Chip." The V-chip is the actual chip built into the television that blocks out certain television programming.
a "factory reset" action... This should be somewhere in the TV
menu system. However Please note that will clear everything, so you may need to
re-program every things..the channels etc.
Hold the lock key in the remote for few seconds . you will get the lock tool bar . you can unlock it there
Hold the display button on the remote for 10 seconds.
As a The last solution which is common for all TV sets..
Try to find the User manual for your
television. The section In the manual about
how to set the child lock feature will also explain how to unlock it.
Try a few "universal methods"
for unlocking the child lock. Some televisions have a universal code
built in for disabling the child lock --no matter what your code is. A
commonly used code is "0000."
Unplug your television for at least 1 hour . The internal memory battery of the TV is what helps remember what
your code. When TV is unplugged for an extended period of time, it
clears the internal memory, which in turn will reset your child lock
code back to "0000 " again...
If you are locked out of the inputs, you need a original Mits remote. Push QV and the 9 button simultaneously to unlock temporarily. Some models its the SQV button and 9. This will let you get in to change the code. You can also get a simmilar issues with the active AV network turned on, it will lock it to a set input (ie input 1). Try going into the menu and turning the av network off.
This should resolve your propblem... taken from the Denon USA FAQ...
You’ll rarely need to "initialize the microprocessor" under normal operating conditions. In a few cases, the microprocessor will temporarily freeze or "lock up" just as your home computer does. When this happens, just follow the guidelines in the back of your owner’s manual to "unlock" the microprocessor and restore normal operation. (This is directly comparable to rebooting your computer. It’s an electronic wake up call to your unit’s temporarily paralyzed microprocessor "brain.")
If you experience some unusual behavior -- a channel that’s suddenly silent, "forgotten" level adjustments, some eccentricities in your unit etc. -- you may need to reset the microprocessor. Of course, you should check all connections carefully first. But if you’ve eliminated these items as a source of potential problems, you may need to go through the initialization process.)
Initialization is easy. Please refer to your owners manual for instruction on reseting the microprocessor as each unit may have its own individual protocal for reset.
What causes these problems? Several things can -- a jolt of static electricity, a current surge through an antenna input, etc. But don’t worry, the microprocessor is well shielded from any permanent effects.
When you do initialize the microprocessor, remember that this erases any setup instructions you may have previously programmed into the unit. However, the on-screen menu will quickly get you through a new setup. And, if you write down your preferred settings BEFORE you reset your unit’s microprocessor, you’ll have an even easier job!
If in the event you do intialize microprocessor reset please refer to your owners manual for instructions on setup..
