How do i reset my son forgot his pattern and i can not open


You need to do a factory reset, follow these instructions:

Step 1. With your tablet turned off, press and hold the volume up (+) button. While holding the volume up (+) button, press the tablet's power button until you see the RCA logo with Nipper and Chipper on the screen. After a few seconds, the screen will change and you will see the Android bot on his back with a caution symbol above him.

Step 2. Now you are going to press and hold the tablet's power button, and without releasing the power button press down on the volume up (+) button. You should then see the screen below.

Step 3. Use the tablet's volume up (+) and down (+) keys to navigate to and select the "wipe data/factory reset" option. To select this option, press the power button.

Step 4. The tablet is going to ask you to confirm your selection. Use the tablet's volume up (+) and down (-) keys to navigate to and select "Yes - delete all user data." Once again, use the power button to select this option.

Step 5. At the bottom of the next screen, you will see "Data wipe complete." Press the power button to restart the system.

Can a magnavox smart Tv surf the web?


Philips Magnavox has designed televisions offering a number of different features and options that provide users optimal viewing experience and facilitate ease of use.
One such feature found in certain models is known as Smart Surf.
Smart Surf

The Smart Surf feature allows the user to store previously viewed channels as a series of select favorites, and to surf between those channels by repeatedly pressing the "Surf" button on the television's remote control.
The user can also delete the channels stored in this group and add different ones at a later time.
Stored Channels, TVs
The maximum number of channels that can be saved in the Smart Surf feature varies by model. Some (including the 13MT143S and 20MS233S) allow five, some (TS2554C) allow eight, and some (MX2797B) up to 10.
This feature is found mainly on older CRT TVs, as the the channel search and selection options in LCD TVs and/or their connected digital cable/satellite set-top receiver boxes have made it unnecessary.
Usage
Select a channel, either by using the "CH+" or "CH-" buttons or entering the channel's number. Press "Surf" while the channel number is displayed and press the right arrow button to add that channel. Press "Surf" repeatedly to scan through the saved channels.
To remove a channel, press "Surf" and the right arrow key again while the channel number is displayed.

Surf the Web on Your TV
As the technology that brings us the Internet merges more and more with the technology that brings us traditional television content, we will find ourselves watching TV shows on the computer and watching Internet content on our TV sets.
There are several ways to get Internet on your TV, though most may not be as satisfying as actually using your computer to surf the Web.
Connect TV to Laptop as Second Monitor
Connect your TV and your laptop computer using an S-video cable.
Connect the audio using a component audio cable with red and white connectors.
If your laptop doesn't have component audio, use an adapter that transfers the signal from both cables into one connector, which will plug into the headphone jack on your laptop.


Choose the input mode on the TV that corresponds to the type of connection you are using. Press the monitor button on your laptop.
This is probably a combination of the shift key and one of the function keys.


Tweak the monitor connections under "Display Settings" if necessary.
Choose a low resolution for the TV, which should show up as a second monitor. Select "Advanced Options" in the Display Settings box and choose "generic TV" as the monitor type.


You should now have the option to see items on your TV.
The TV will either have the same icons on both the laptop screen and the TV, or you can choose "extend the desktop onto this monitor" in Display Settings, and then drag items to the TV from the laptop screen.
You will be able to see the Internet and control things using the controls on the laptop.

TV with Internet Capability

Connect your TV to the Internet according to the TV manufacturer's instructions.
TVs with this type of port include Panasonic VIERA, Sharp LC series and Panasonic TC-PS1 series.


Navigate the menu using the TV remote and following any instructions in the TV manual relating to using the Internet.
Select the desired content and watch it.


Be aware that this type of TV may only show Internet content provided by websites and companies that have partnered with the TV manufacturer for inclusion.

Internet-enabled Game Console

Connect the game console to the TV and ensure there is a wireless Internet connection available. Alternatively, connect an Ethernet cable directly to the game console.


Using the game controller, choose the Internet channel. You can surf using a menu or enter a website URL with a virtual keyboard, or you can attach a USB keyboard to the game console.


Results may vary and this will not be as satisfying as surfing the Internet using a computer, but some websites will work well and all should be accessible.

Set-top Box

Connect a set-top box, such as a Roku, Sony Bravia, or NetGear ITV2000 to your TV.


Make sure a high-speed Internet connection is available.
This may be accessed wirelessly or through an Ethernet cable connected to the set-top box.


Select from the menu to choose content. Be aware that this option, like the Internet TV option, may limit you to content from providers that partner with the box manufacturers, and that you may not be able to use the entire Internet.

Parental controls


HI,
Do the following for unlock the parental control. For this you should need the remote for the DVD payer.
1. Press the set-up button on the remote (set-up display will come on the TV screen )
2. Using Right arrow button or Left arrow button select DVD Setup menu
3. Using Down arrow select Parental control and press Enter button
4. now you can change the parental rating using up down arrows
If it ask for password the read the following carefully and do the same and enjoy your videos.
PARENTAL CONTROL LEVELS 1-8
The Parental Lock allows you to limit the use of your DVD Player to only those DVD discs that do not exceed the rating you specify. When the Parental Control is set, DVD discs that support this feature will play only after the password has been entered. However, typically only discs produced by major entertainment companies support Parental Control. Discs not supporting this feature will be "immune" to Lock-Out. When you attempt to change the Parental Control setting, you are prompted for a password. This of course makes sense, as this option would be useless if your kids could enter the Setup Menu and disable it! If there is no user password set, you'll be prompted to enter a new password. Choose a 4-Digit numeric password and write it down in Case you forget it. Key in the password and press ENTER. After the password is set, press ENTER on the CHILD option. You can choose from 8 levels of Parental Control, corresponding to the standard rating system in the USA. The available levels and their equivalent ratings are listed to the right.



PASSWORD - CHANGE
Here is where you can set an additional password to the default factory password. The procedures to change an existing password or enter a new password are the same - you must enter the OLD PASSWORD, then key in your new password twice to confirm. If you are entering a new password, or replacing a password you have forgotten, use the factory default password of 3351 as the OLD PASSWORD. If you are changing a previously entered password, you may enter that value as the old password.

A. Remember to keep in mind that the key to the the factory default password of 3351
B. Once the factory password has been changed, you should keep the password written in a safe location as a reminder if needed

The remote just says set 2 and does nothing


Does the TV screen say Set 2 or the display area on the DVD recorder? The original remote for the DMR-ES35VS doesn't have a screen. (If you are using a universal remote, I'm not sure how to reset the unit.)

The Set 2 indicates that the unit was set to listen to a remote on the second wavelength available on these remotes. Your remote needs to be set to the same wavelength. Press and hold Enter and then press and hold 2 (for about 2 seconds) on the remote to set it to this option. Press Return to move back through the menu or exit the screen. (Panasonic provided this feature for those with several devices so that each remote wouldn't control a nearby device at that frequency.) To get the recorder to respond to the remote, they must be set to the same range. To check, press the Functions button. Under Other Functions > Setup > Remote Control Code, you can adjust the wavelength that the receiver is looking for. (Use the up/down arrows to select a sub-menu and the Enter key to enter the sub-menu. Use the left/right arrows to select options in the secondary menu.) If the unit doesn't respond, try a different wavelength. (Press and hold Enter and then press 1 or 3. There are only three possible options for the remote/receiver.)

For a screen capture of this, see page 19 of the manual; it is available from Panasonic here: http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/DMRES35V.pdf . An original remote is available from Remotes.com: http://remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Search&o=c&uid=0&m=DMR-ES35VS&uuid=13262363222670 . It probably comes pre-programmed for Remote Code 1.

I hope this helps.

Setup menu


Ok I've just found out how to get the interlaced/progressive problem sorted out. It is as follows and PLEASE REMEMBER you will be doing this "Blind" sice the screen is black:

1. Power on the DVD unit.
2..Press the "SET UP" button on the remote, ONCE (DVD Display should show "Setup" )
3. Using the arrow buttons on the remote, push the RIGHT arrow ">" ONCE
4..Press the "DOWN" Arrow on the remote ONCE
5. Press the "ENTER" button on the remote ONCE
6. Press the "DOWN" Arrow on the remote ONCE
7. Press the "ENTER" Button on the remote ONCE
At this point you should have your picture and menu displayed on the screen, simply hit setup again to exit, and get the hell out of there!

If you want a copy of what you should be looking for, e mailed, I can do that.
Finally, to do a system restore, which will achive the same results (but you'll have to reset date, time etc.), follow steps 1 & 2 Then instead of hitting the DOWN arrow once, press it THREE times and hit "ENTER" this will restore the unit to factory settings. I have never done this so I am only guesing what other settings you will have to adjust, as well as time and date.

I also have the details on how to make the unit region free, email me and I'll send them to you.
Good Luck!
