    I have the same problem, what adds to my problem is that the TV is branded "Universal" which creates a problem when I do a search for Universal TV on the internet. I will look more closely at mine over the weekend to see if there is a product code on the back. Thanks Paul

Want to reset the v-chip on my 2001orion tv model # 1933


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

Hello pea16 serrure enfants means lock infants or as we say child lock.

Hold the display button down for 10 seconds, which removes the lock.
If that does not work try: unplugging the TV for about five minutes and see if that clears it, If you need the owner's manual you can goto: http://www.magnavox.com/ then click on support center and enter your model number.

Then go to the language section and select english.

I hope this helps,
Thank you,
