    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

I have a Grundig XENTIA 82 FLAT MFW 82-430/8 TV, everytime i turn it on i get a blue screen & the child lock nb to fill in, so i have to type the nb 7038580 to watch tv... how can i cancel this koz...


If this is happening on all the channels I think you will need a total reset. If so open menu and check the settings for child lock when you manually tune. An option is to reset the channels once again after the lock is opened. Choose a new channel scan to reset the memory. However if the lock seems to be only on specified channels you can open the settings of the channel and unlock on the menu.

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.

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,
