Panisonic TV all locked up

Our TV is completely locked up. We have not put parental locks on it or anything like that. We cannot change the TV/Video input, or anything else, either through the controler or directly on the TV. All we can do is turn the TV on and off through the remote or TV. None of the other buttons or inputs will work, either through the TV or remote. It is complete locked on one setting!

Tip

Polaroid LCD TV Parental lock/unlock


Program Lock
Input the default password of 1235, the submenu
of Parent will display if the password is correct.

(a) When changing the password, the changed
password will be updated after four digits are input.
The word "ok" appears after you input the same
number twice, if the two passwords are different the
word "Failure" will appear.

(b) When All Clear is selected, all programs are unlocked.

(c) After you exit from the Program Lock menu and switch to a locked channel, the picture and
sound will be locked unless you input the correct password. The channel will remain unlocked
until the TV is turned off. After the TV is turned on again, the password must be re-entered to
view the locked channels again.

(d) If your program is locked, input the correct password to enter the Auto Search submenu.
Operating Auto Search will cancel the locked status.

(e) The default password is always effective.

(f) Entering the default password allows you to go to the Program Lock menu, then change the
password while the default password is still effective. This branch menu cannot be entered if a
wrong password is keyed in, In this case, press MENU to return to the previous menu.

(g) There will be slight delays while using the Lock All and Clear All functions.

● Child Lock
In Child Lock On mode, the buttons on the TV do not work. A prompt "Panel buttons are being
locked" will be displayed. However, the remote control buttons will still function. When the TV is
on and the Child Lock is on, a prompt "Locked, power off after 6s" will appear. Use the remote
control to control the TV. Otherwise, the TV will automatically enter into Standby mode.

Having trouble with setting your Parental Controls (V-Chip)?
The factory preset password is 0000. This password must be used first before setting your own personal password. It is recommended that you keep your personal password in a safe place and away from children. In the event you loose your personal password the master password is 8202. The master password overrides all passwords. The master password can't be changed and should be kept in a safe place away from children.

I apparently put on a parental lock, don't know the code and want to be able to watch dvds. Is there a universal override code?


When you get to the password input screen, press the select button. The text should change from Enter Password to Delete Password. Then enter the code 7-4-4-4 . From there you can set a new level and password for yourself.

Child Lock is on and I am second owner of tv with no code


This function will block out the picture and sound of the selected channel or video input.
It can also be used to keep the TV from being viewed for a scheduled time period that you set.
The code to enter the Locks feature is a four digit secret code number. The factory preset code is 0000.
Use the number buttons to select access code.

Use CURSOR G or H to highlight function and then press the SELECT button.
To change the access code number, select Change Access Code. Enter a new four digit key number you prefer.
Select CHANGE ACCESS CODE to change factory preset code (0000) to your preference.
When ENGAGE LOCK is selected, SET CHANNEL LOCK, SET INPUT LOCK, and SET FRONT PANEL LOCK can be set individually.
When SET CHANNEL LOCK is turned on, the picture and sound for the chosen channel will be blocked out.
When SET INPUT LOCK is turned on, the picture and sound for all video inputs and the picture and sound for channels 3, 4 will be
blocked out.
When FRONT PANEL LOCK is turned on, all buttons on the Front Panel will be deactivated, except the Power button.
When TV TIME LOCK is turned on (r TIME LOCK) you can set the BEGIN and END times (CURSOR E) and the TV
cannot be viewed during that time period (Set clock first). Use CURSOR G or H to highlight ONCE (TV will time out one time
only), DAILY (TV will time out every day), WEEKLY - SUN~WEEKLY - MON (TV will time out one time a week) or OFF (to disable
this function).
When MOVIE RATINGS is selected, you can block various types of movies and video tapes based on motion picture ratings. Picturein-
Picture will also be blocked automatically (see page 45).
When TV RATINGS is selected, various types of television programming based on a parental guide ratings will be blocked.
Picture-in-Picture will also be blocked automatically
If you forget your secret code, use the factory code 7777 to erase your key number. This will reset the secret code number back to the
factory preset 0000.
Press EXIT to quit the menu.

Hacker code maybe


Hi Karyne1975,

Initially, I would venture that the Parental Lock has been engaged and was set to the lowest level meaning the TV will not allow any channel to be displayed, they are all blocked.

To remove the parental lock, proceed to the Main Menu display, press on LEFT or RIGHT arrow key till Parental Guide Setting is highlighted. Before you can access, an entry code is required. The factory default is 1225 (that is if it has not been changed). Upon gaining entry, press on UP or DOWN and/or LEFT or RIGHT arrow keys to turn any entry in the MPAA-Rating and/or the TV-Rating to show U (unblock). Additionally, it may also be necessary to turn the RATE SETTING to OFF. Exit.

To my knowledge Parental Lock is not disengaged by full hard reset or unplugging from mains.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
