Got new cable service and now tv is saying channels are blocked due to parental controls which we did not set. we have not set up a password so we need to know how to unlock without one.


The simplest thing to do is contact your cable service. This mishap can be reset by them if you give them the information that they ask, they should be able to remove the block or even give you the password. All and all...call them!
Hope this helps ^_^

My son blocked everyone out of the tv with parental control. He can't remember the password he used and I can't get the reset to do anything. How can I fix this?


If you have reset the TV back to factory settings, you can use the factory unlock code, which is 0000.

To Reset the TV:
  1. Press the MENU button on the remote control to display the Main menu, and select SETUP.
  2. Highlight Reset Default, and press the OK button.
To Remove the Parental Control Block:
  1. Press the MENU button on the remote control to display the Main menu, and select SETUP.
  2. Highlight Parental, and press the OK button.
  3. To use the Parental function, must enter a four-digit password. The factory password is 0000.
  4. Select Program Block, and press OK to display the Program Block menu.
  5. You can remove the parental control in this section.

Fpa lock on how do i get this offf


hello Lock/Unlock Parental Controls
Selecting this option lets you lock and unlock parental controls settings
using a password.
If you do not lock parental controls, none of the settings for V-Chip,
Channel Block, or Front Panel Block will take effect.
If you forget your password, press the MENU button, then select Parental
Control
(the password entry screen appears). Simultaneously press and
hold CH+ and VOL+ on the front panel for 8 seconds. Parental Controls
unlock and the Parental Control menu appears. You can enter a new
password by locking the Parental Controls again.
Front Panel Block
Selecting this option lets you block (disable) or unblock (enable) the TV’s
front panel. The remote still tunes to any channel. When using this as a
Parental Control method, remove access to any remote that is capable of
operating the television while you have the front panel blocked.
Don’t forget to lock parental controls after you change the status. If you
don’t, the front panel block will not take effect .if this don't work get back to me i've got manual good luck

Need to reset v chip on ge tv 19gt243


Reset the password to '0000' by holding the VolumeDown and ChannelUp buttons on the TV (not remote) for about 5 seconds. Do this while viewing blocked content- you'll see the screen blink when it gets reset. Then go into the menu and disable/change the v-chip settings as desired using password '0000'. Hope this helps- -sv-
