If you forget your passcode, you can view the locked TV without entering your passcode. This is done by pressing the number 9 and QV buttons on the remote TV control at the same time, when your password is requested. This process temporarily unlocks the TV. When entering the V-Chip Lock menu, this process deletes your old passcode and prompts you to enter a new passcode.
When a red key appears in
the lower left corner of your Apex television screen, the set's V-chip is
engaged, preventing you from watching restricted content. You can override
parental controls and reset your television's pass code with your remote. Parental Lock
The Apex prompts you to enter a 4-digit code when you set up
parental controls. You can block programs according to their MPAA ratings
or their content designations, such as V for violence or S for ******
Disabling the Lock
You can override parental controls on most Apex models by
simultaneously pressing the F and mute buttons on the remote control. If
you own Apex models GT2011J or GT2011S, hold the remote's display button
for ten seconds. The red key will vanish and the V-chip will unblock your
Override CodesApex's default parental lock control code is 6688, so if you haven't set
a new code, entering 6688 will remove the red key and unblock your program. If
you've set a new password and forgotten it, entering 3308 will reset the code
and unblock your program.
Omni TVs have a child lock that allows parents to prevent children
from watching specific channels or television shows with certain ratings. To
activate or deactivate the controls, you need the four digit pass code. If you
forget the pass code or if the lock gets set accidentally, you can still unlock
the TV. • Use the original
Omni remote control to turn on the TV. You need the original remote to bypass
the child lock. A universal remote won't work. Check the screen. If you see a blank screen with a red key on it,
press the "Function" and "Mute" buttons at the same time.
This unlocks only the channel that is on the TV. All the other channels will
remain locked and the TV will lock again when it is turned off.
• Unlock all of the channels on the TV by
entering "6688," which is the factory reset code. This code resets
the TV to original factory settings. Once this is done, you will have to go
through the initial setup.
• Call Omni technical support at (416)
260-0047. A technician can help you troubleshoot the television as the problem
may not be the child lock. You'll need to know the model number and serial
number of the TV. •Take your television to a TV repair shop if you
are still unable to unlock the TV. The problem may be with the wiring, so the
repairman may have to rewire the TV
Panasonic sets need to be
reset to clear the v-chip settings. To do this, put it in standby mode, then
press the POWER and ACTION buttons at the same time and then turn the power
off. The set should reset to the factory defaults, and reset the v-chip.
hi, For unlocking you tv you have to reset its v-chip. Do the following for the same.
Philips sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The
override code for Philip sets is 0711, although it may say "Incorrect
code" the first time to trick you. If "Incorrect code" is displayed,
simply enter 0711 again. To use it hit the MENU key to get to the menus.
Go up or down until you reach AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK, depending on the
model, and push the "right arrow" key on the remote. Enter the override
code, and enter it a second time if it says it is incorrect. Once
in the AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK menu, go to BLOCK, and push the "right
arrow" key. Go to BLOCKING OPTIONS and press the "right arrow" key. Go
to MASTER DISABLE and press the "right arrow" key so that it says
"MASTER DISABLE ON". The v-chip is now reset. ok
Sharp has several locking and V-chip commands but one of these three possibilities should work.
Newer Combos With "Time Limiter" Feature If the "Secret Number" is forgotten, simultaneously press the STOP, RESET, and VOL up buttons on the front panel of the set. This disables both the "Channel Lock" and the "Time Limiter" features.
CTV's Lock Mode---Blue screen and display says,Parental Control Rating Unknown Try This: Hold Channel up and down on the set while pluging in AC cord. Or Try This: On the set, press volume up and channel down at the same time.
CTV's V-Chip Release When screen asks you to "input secret number" press and hold channel up and down on the TV set until message disappears. Press menu 2 times to exit.
Hope this helps!
I finally found out how to reset the V-chip password on this princess DT1350-P Tv. All you have to do is turn the TV on and turn to a channel that doesn't prompt the V-chip password (even if it's snowy) and hold down the volume (down -) button on the main unit while holding down the number "0" on the remote control. It might take a few tries, and you might need to change the TV channel for some reason but if done correctly, either the TV will turn off, or the menu screen will pop up and ask if you want to set the vchip password, either way you should be able to watch your TV now! :)
1) Hit [MENU]. Press [CH up / down] to select ?V-CHIP SET UP?, then hit [VOL up].
2) Enter 4-digit access code with the Number buttons. If you have not set up your personal access code, enter 0000 (default access code).
