Question about Sharp 27C-240 27" TV
How do I reset the Parental Control. I cannot remember the password originally used in setting the VCHIP.
trying to change parental controls
Try to press power up button, channel up and volume minus at the same time. This should resolve your problem.

I just bought a used Sharp 27F630 tv and the V-Chip lock is set. Any generic code I try doesn't work and I have attempted to reset it but nothing seems to work. Any help would be appreciated.

SOURCE: Reset Parental Control
There you go:
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).

When the message "INPUT SECRET NO." appears, press the Ch UP and Ch DOWN keys ON THE TV SET (Not the remote) until the message disappears. Then press "MENU" two times on the remote to exit. I have a soft copy PDF file for 13L-M100B set. Send me your email to me at email@example.com and I can send it to you.

on my Sharp 36R-s400. Go to menu , then parental control. When dispaly asks for secret number,
press and hold volume up and channel down simultaneously until message is cleared.
This turns off parental control and clears the password.

Tips for a great answer:
Selecting this option lets you lock (disable) or unlock (enable) the TV's front
panel buttons. The remote still tunes to any channel so remember to remove
access to any remote that can operate the television.
1. Choose Parental Control from the Main Menue and press the OK button.
2. Enter your passworcd.
3. Press the down arrow to highlight Front Panel.
4. Press the right or left arrow button to choose unlock (_) or lock (_).
I don't remember my password and I want to unlock the TV
If you forget your password, you must reset it. Make sure the TV is of. Press VOL- (down) on the TV's front panel and then
CLEAR on the remote for approxhnately 5 seconds. The TV turns on. Enter a new password next time you access
the PARENATAL CONTROL menu or the TIME_menu.
