Parental Guide On (Activate V-Chip)
Selecting this option lets you activate and deactivate parental control settings.
1. Press MENU on the remote control (the Main menu appears).
2. Press the button until the Parental Control icon is highlighted.
3. Press the button until the bottom PASSWORD is highlighted.
4. Enter your password using the numbers buttons on the remote (the PARENTAL GUIDE menu appears).
5. Press the button to highlight PARENTAL GUIDE OFF, then press the button to turn it on. It must be
on for rating limits to take effect.
If you do not activate V-Chip, none of the settings for V-Chip will take effect.
If you forget your password, you can reset it. Enter 5898 as the password and then change it to a new one.
Child Lock
Selecting this option lets you lock (disable) or unlock (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.
1. Press MENU on the remote control (the Main menu appears).
2. Press the button until the Parental Control icon is highlighted.
3. Press the button until the bottom PASSWORD is highlighted.
4. Enter your password using the numbers buttons on the remote (the PARENTAL GUIDE menu appears).
5. Press the button to highlight CHILD LOCK, then press the button to turn it on.
Change Password
Selecting this option lets you simply create a new password at any time. Once you enter a new password
from CHANGE PASSWORD in the PARENTAL CONTROL menu, it is the password you use until you change it
again.

2. Press the button until the Parental Control icon is highlighted.
3. Press the button until the bottom PASSWORD is highlighted.
4. Enter your password using the numbers buttons on the remote (the PARENTAL GUIDE menu appears).

I GOT AN AKAI TV MODELL #CFTD2083 AT GARRAGE SALE. THIS PAST WEEKEND AND WHEN I TURN IT ON IT SAYS SOMETHING ABOUT MY V CHIP BEING ON LOCKED SOMETHING LIKE THAT . WHAT I NEED TO KNOW IS HOW DO I FIX IT?...


The V chip is a parental locking device to keep the children off of the naughty chanels(lets you lock the chanels out you want too!)
You need the password to unlock the chip feature!
The people who sold you the TV are the ones who must have put in that password! if you can somhow get ahold of them they can give you the password and you can turn off the V chip!
I hope I was of help!

Resetting the v-chip password so i can remove it and watch all that i want


I had the same problem. Here's what Toshiba emailed to me:

  1. Disconnect the AC power for at least one minute to reset the clock.
  2. Adjust the volume to the minimum using the Volume down button on the front of the unit.
  3. Press and hold the Volume down button on the front of the unit and the 0 button on the remote control at the same time, holding them down for at least 10 seconds.
  4. The user menu will appear with the V-Chip cursor blinking.
  5. Press the ENTER key on the remote control and the NEW PASSWORD menu will appear.
  6. Enter your new password.
Hope that helps!!

TV channels locked. 7 year old 27 in TV. GE


I have the same model with the same problem. I used a Radio Shack 4 in One remote that I had laying around to access the TV and used the code 1234 for the V-chip passcode. I would just keep trying 4 digit codes if this one does not work.

Problems with V-Chip/Parental Controls
The rating limits don’t work
• For rating limits to take effect, you must lock V-Chip settings to activate them.
I don’t remember my password and I want to unlock the TV
• If you forget your password you can reset it. Enter 5898 as the password and then change it
to a new one.

V-chip code forgotten


I found this to work on my Toshiba TV/VHS combo MV19M4 after trying others suggestions that had worked on similar models but nothing worked on mine. Maybe it will work for yours. Follow these steps:

1: Unplug the TV for 1 minute then plug it back in.
2: In the menu select "TV Set Up".
3: Move the blinking block to beside "V-CHIP Set" BUT DO NOT SELECT IT.
4: Hold in the number 1 button on the remote.
5: Hold in the volume down button on the TV.

Your TV will turn off. Give it a few seconds to reset itself and then turn it back on and you will have to completely reprogram your settings. When you go to the V-CHIP settings it will ask for your new code.

When there is a parental code, you have to ring up your tv service provider for the code.
