SETTING V-CHIP This TV is fitted with a V-CHIP controller which provides you with channel viewing access controls and restrictions. This function is to prevent your children from watching violence or sexual scenes that you may choose to exclude. Press the MENU button and press the SET + or – button to select the V-CHIP SET option, then press the ENTER button. Enter your password (4 digits) using the Direct channel selection buttons (0-9). In the event of entering incorrect password press the RESET button. Then press the ENTER button. Enter the same password for confirmation, then press the ENTER button. Press the SET + or – button to select the V-CHIP option. Press the ENTER button to select the ON. Press the SET + or – button to select the TV RATING or MOVIE RATING option. Press the ENTER button. Press the SET + or – button to select the desired rating for the applicable video or TV channel. Press the ENTER button.
And to change or put in a new password: NOTES: • If you want to change password, follow steps 1 and 2 and select "CHANGE PASSWORD" option then enter your new password. • The V-Chip function is activated only on programs and tapes that have the rating signal. • Once you block a program using the V-Chip function, the blocked program cannot be watched based on the content of the show. When the program starts, the "INPUT PASSWORD" will appear on the screen. When you want to release the V-Chip temporarily, enter the password. If you change the channel or turn off the TV while the V-Chip function was temporarily released, the original setting will be resumed. If you return to the channel you were watching you must re-enter your password to temporarily release your V-Chip function again. • When you watch the TV from the cable box or the VCR with the RF Modulator, then you release the V-Chip temporarily, the V-Chip setting will not be resumed until you turn off the TV. The TV channel is not used in this case. • When changing the channel with the cable box or the VCR, approximately 10 seconds will pass until the program appears.
When the message "INPUT SECRET NO." appears, press the Ch UP and Ch DOWN keys ON THE TV SET (Not the remote) until the message disappears. Then press "MENU" two times on the remote to exit.
