Question about Akai PT5492S 54" Rear Projection Television
To reset this condition usually requires a visit to the repair shop. To clear the parental control from the AKAI brand sets, you must enter the "Service" mode of the television. WARNING: There ARE adjustments in the service menu that CAN destroy your television if improperly adjusted.
This should not matter to you as long as you are simply reseting the parental lock function.
You must have the ORIGINAL FACTORY remote. (The one that came with the television when it was new.)
With the remote press the following one at a time in order:
MUTE - 1 - 8 - 2 - POWER.
Now you should be in the service menu where you should see RESET. Select reset and enter. Turn off TV.
Your done. When you turn your set back on, the code should be cleared.

If you forget your password, press and hold TV on the remote and the MENU button on the television simultaneously for 3 seconds. Parental controls will then unlock and you can re-enter a password.
