If you forget your password, simultaneously press and hold the MENU/
OK button on the front panel and VOLUME down button on the
remote for three seconds. This resets the password only and unlocks the
TV; all other settings in Parental Controls are not changed.

The S-video cable doesn't have hookups for audio, only video. It's better than the video coaxial cable. But, you still need to hook up the right and left audio coaxial cables.

Sorry to say, when the display is broken you're best off looking for a replacement TV.
There isn't any way to repair a cracked display except to replace it. You can try a Google search or check websites like shopjimmy.com that sell parts removed from junked sets. It's almost impossible to find replacement displays (unless you are a warranty servicer and get them right from the manufacturer) since most TV's are junked because of broken displays. And if you do find a display, there are still potential problems. Besides the cost (the display is the most expensive part, most of the set's cost), you need to be sure the display is exactly the same part as the one you're replacing. The same model of TV can use different displays depending on when and where it was made, and there may be differences in other parts in the set as well.

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 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
You can set the following options to block
• 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
