Child protective lockout can't be turned off

We don't know how the lockout got turned on, but now I can't watch "R" rated movies. It is asking me for a code (which I don't know) and to make matters worse, I can't find the remote. Is there any way to disable this function without the remote?

I found the remote, then tried 0000 to unlock, which didn't work. Luckily 1111 did. I figure if I hadn't found the remote, I could have bought a cheap universal one. But all is well now. I still have no idea how the parental control was implemented.

How do you unlock child lock on a LG BH100 Blu-Ray Disc Player?


Sorry, to say that the user manual states that the only way to turn on/off the child lock is to use the remote control.

The manual can be accessed using this link and following the on-screen instructions:

http://www.retrevo.com/support/LG-BH100-DVD-Players-manual/id/1074bh627/t/2/

Time to check under the cushions for the remote controller!

Lost my manual. Displays Error Parental and will not play movie. I have watched previous movies but don't know their rating. This movie was PG-13. I don't think I ever set any parental controls...


hi, I tried to find you a user manual for you to solve the problem but I failed... sorry but without user manual it is hard to propose a solution for your problem since it is spesific issue on that model.. I only recommend to you to go to "MENU" and scrool down on the sub menus to find out a control for this issue that you can alter..... Additionally ,Here is some information I found out about Protron company:

Protron and Spectroniq are the same company. I just visited the Protron web site "www.protronusa.com" it is dead and it has not been updated since 2007. I believe the company is no longer in business and will doubt if you will find a Protron Service Center. If and when needed,You are very lucky to find a repair shop that will attempt to work on the DVD , most will not. The internet is plagued with issues with protron products .

by the way based on google search ;" PROTRON " is being sued by " PROTON " for name brand name -copy right infringement.

Hope this helps! Take care and please Remember to rate/vote for me to continue for Helping out the Community :)

It is asking me for a password to watch a movie, and it is a second hand dvd player and i don't know the code.


Default passwords on these are 0000 so try that, If not then you will not be able to get past it unfortunately unless you get in contact with the person who sold it to you.

I want to record Turner Classic Movies from my cable to a dvd. I then want to edit out parts I don't want. Some movies are good but have just a few scenes that are not appropriate for family viewing....


The dvd recorder will not automatically edit out parts you don't want to see....the easiest way is to watch the movie live and if you know the part you don't want to record, press pause during the part and resume when it's done. Otherwise you will have to load the whole movie from dvd to your computer, get an editing software and cut out the scenes you don't want. There are lots of these simple programs on the market and some are even free.
Quickest way is to watch it real time and push pause on the objectionable parts.
Hope this helps.

It goes back to the DVD menu. Some DVD menus have little animations of characters from the movie talking to you telling you to start the movie or something. You could definitely go somewhere with that. Also, some DVD players have a sleep timer on them so they turn off automatically or just show the start up screen which usually says the brand name of the device.

Parental control


NICE, and this is the reason why they sold it at the yard sale.

What you going to need is a firmware package I do nto have a link but google is your best friend what it does is basically hack the password (witch is kinda borderline TOS violation to even tell you how to do it)

I would say you got shafted because you going to spend time and possiable money for the solution. And APEX to boot is not even worth $10 bucks at a yard sale. I am not trying to hate here but tell you facts. Your solution is google sorry I cannot direct link that as its a exploit. try 4 zeros, or 4 9999 to try and defualt erase it Good luck.

please do be considerate and leave postive feedback or ratings as this is the best i can do for you.

My DVP 3962/37 is asking for a password and I have no idea what to do! It is a Phillips DVD player.


Hi there,

This sounds like the child access control lock or the disc lock to me. One feature of Philips machine's is a child access lock which you can set to a level of your choice. When the machine prompts you for the password try entering the following code 136900 then press enter this is the default password code for this particular model (see your user manual page 44, the manual can be downloaded from the Philips website) you can change this password if you wish after this. To deactivate the child lock select Setup menu then pressing up or down select Parental. the the protection level is rated from 1 to 8 select the level you wish by using the up or down buttons and then press enter it will then ask for the password (default 136900) level 8 will deactivate the parental control.

Hope this helps,
James

Password request


Something must be set to restrict certain movies and it is protected by a password. Did you do this to protect your kids? I would dig out the manual and see if this is the case.

You have the rating set on your DVD player to lower than the rating of the movie you are trying to watch.

Somewhere in your setup menu of your DVD player (press the "setup" button on the remote with disc stopped or no disc) you will find a place to set the parental lock. Either turn it off, if that is an option, or set it to the rating of the movie (or higher) to enable viewing.
