Smartlock code i have a phillip/magnavox tv and some channels are coming up blocked. i have turned off all of the "smartlock" settings and i have no channels blocked. how would i reset the tv for a code? it says please enter code. i never had this problem before and i had this tv for about 7 years. i dont think i still have the book. please help even my soaps get blocked sometimes!!!! Got a used TV from a friend and there are a number of channels that are blocked. The original owner does not remember the access code. Is there a method to master reset this SmartLock thing or is the TV a throwaway just because of this channel lock? What a waste!

I used the following that I found on a site that compiles v-chip reset solutions:

Philips and Magnavox:

Philips sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The override code
for Philip sets is 0711, although it may say "Incorrect code" the first time
to trick you. If "Incorrect code" is displayed, simply enter 0711 again. To
use it hit the MENU key to get to the menus. Go up or down until you reach
AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK, depending on the model, and push the "right arrow"
key on the remote. Enter the override code, and enter it a second time if it
says it is incorrect.

Once in the AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK menu, go to BLOCK, and push the "right
arrow" key. Go to BLOCKING OPTIONS and press the "right arrow" key. Go to
MASTER DISABLE and press the "right arrow" key so that it says "MASTER
DISABLE ON". The v-chip is now reset.

Need code for tv remote to operate tv by the remote


Hello

You cannot change Parental

Control settings without

knowing the secret code. If

your code changes, someone

else has altered it and possibly
viewed blocked channels. Yet try the following procedure:-

Philips sets uses a four digit code to contro the V-Chip. The override code for Philips set is " 0711 "
although it may say "Incorrect code" the first time to trick you. If "Incorrect code" is displayed, simply enter 0711 again. To use it hit the MENU key to get to the menus. Go up or down until you reach AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK, depending on the model, and push the "right arrow" key on the remote. Enter the override code, and enter it a second time if it says it is incorrect.

Once in the AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK menu, go to BLOCK, and push the "right arrow" key. Go to BLOCKING OPTIONS and press the "right arrow" key. Go to MASTER DISABLE and press the "right arrow" key so that it says "MASTER DISABLE ON". The v-chip is now reset.
OK.
