Child Lock

Combos
--Should have original remote. Press and hold the power button for 6 to 10 seconds


Combo Model T25208, V-Chip Forgotten Password
If you forget your password, simultaneously press VOLUME down on the TV/VCR front panel and the 0 number button on the remote for a few seconds. This resets the password and you can enter a new one.

Combo Model 13TVR62, V-Chip Forgotten Password
If you forget your password, press STOP/EJECT on the TV/VCR front panel and MENU on the remote simultaneously. This resets the password, but not the limits you’ve set.
Televisions with Parental Lock Feature


If you forgot your password for this feature, press the following buttons on the remote, one at a time. (Note: You must be in the password entry screen) Press, Mute, Display,Clear and Reset, this unlocks parental controls and you can now re-enter a new password.
OR TRY THIS..
Press and hold Menu on the TV AND volume down on the remote for 3 seconds. Nothing will appear on the screen, and the Parental Controls will unlock, and you can re-enter a new password with the LOCK PARENTAL CONTROLS

CTC169AU
Channels that have been locked can be viewed only when the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to OFF. This can only be done with the remote control-it can not be changed with the buttons on the front of the TV.

Therefore, after you turn on PARENTAL CTRL, you simply hide the remote control so that your children can not watch the locked channels. The locked-out channels will remain unviewable even if the TV is unplugged or the channels are autoprogrammed again. The only way to view locked channels is to use the supplied remote control to set the PARENTAL CTRL function to OFF.

The PARENTAL CTRL and the CHAN CTRL functions work hand-in-hand. The instructions below will first tell you how to turn parental control on or off with the PARENTAL CTRL function and then how to lock desired channels with the CHAN CTRL function.
1. Repeatedly press MENU to select SETUP MENU, and then press + or - to display setup functions. Repeatedly press MENU to select the PARENTAL CTRL function. . When this function is set to ON, PARENTAL CTRL is activated and any channels you locked with the CHAN CTRL function will not be viewable. . When this function is set to OFF, PARENTAL CTRL is deactivated and all channels are viewable.

2. To lock channels, press the MENU button to select the CHAN CTRL function. Select a channel you want to lock by pressing CHANNEL up or down. Then press +. The CHAN CTRL setting will change from NORMAL to LOCKED when that channel is locked. To return the channel to NORMAL, press the - button. Repeat step 2 for each channel you want to lock. If the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to ON while you are locking out channels, each channel will go blank as you lock it. When the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to ON and a channel which has been locked out is tuned, the TV will display the words PARENTAL CONTROL to let your kids know you have locked it.

CTC185's
If the front panel function buttons don't work, (menu, ch up/dn etc.) but the functions work normal with the remote, enter the "Channel" menu with the remote and turn "Parental Control" off.

CTC203's
In the event you have forgotten your password, perform the following procedure:
Press and hold for 3 seconds the TV button on the remote while pressing the menu button on the TV.
This procedure will turn off the parental lock and erase the previous password .

Another Possibility To Try For Various Models: If TV's in the Parental mode and askes for a password that's forgotten, Press menu on the TV, select Parental Lock #4 on menu, then with the remote press Mute, Display, Clear, and Reset buttons in sequence.

TX808 Chassis
If Parental Controls have been set and you don't know the password, do this:
Press and hold the volume down and the channel up buttons at the same time for 5 seconds.
Now you can reset the password to 0000, and using that password you can now access the V-Chip menus.

TV's (Made by Daewoo or possibly Apex, ie. GE model 24GP653)
The factory default pass code of 6688 is also the override code, in case the owner forgets their pass code. If that doesn't work, another place in the owners manual says to push Function and Mute on the remote at the same time. Function is the top right button.

I am sooo happy this worked for me.... Came back to see if it will help someone else. I was given a RCA TV and the parental control locked my tv. Could not turn it on at all. Brought a universal remote control and it didnot work I went to radio shack and brought a RCA universal remote control $7.00 and it turned on the tv. All I had to do was hit the power button. Hope this works for others.

I need to know how to unlock the parental lock on my daughter's Spongebob television model number sb305


Either in the owner manual (if lost Google the model number with "manual" to try to locate one) are the instructions for this.

A harder way is call Emerson and have them step you thru the process.

Turning parental control blocks off


Parental locks are put in place to stop minors from accessing usuitable programs. An adult usually selects the channels to lock out as well as categories of videos that can be played. Thesae are controlled by a code neterd by the Parent or Giuardian and cannot be subverted without knowing the code. I am tempted to say.... ask your parents for permission to unlock this. We cannot supply any information without proof of age here.

With this model also there are no secret codes listed to over ride an entered password as its not a regular brand of TV. maybe the people you bought it from ( Walmart?) may be able to contact the supplier who rebadged this unit, to help you overcome the problem

Sorry we cant be of more help for you. Please accept our apologies

Got to get back to factory settings. parental control is on (somehow) and not allowing some programming. 19'' RCA 2003 but don't have exact model #


You can find the model number on the back of the TV. Going back to factory settings won't solve the problem you're having. The only thing that can overcome parental control is either a repair shop, or a special code that you would have to get from the manufacture. Its called an omniscient code meaning it will always work. Some TVs have them, but some do not. Only the manufacture or a service center that has the service manual for your model can tell you the right answer. Don't waste your time trying to fix the problem yourself. Parental locks are designed to stand up to the prying minds of kids and teenagers. Call RCA customer service for the information I spoke of above.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.

Parental controle


I have three users on my computer, and somehow I don't have an administrative user so I can change my parental controls or accept updates. How do I re-establish an administrator so I can accept program updates. I get a window telling me I need a password approval but there is no where to input the password. I have an HP and Windows Vista.
