SOURCE: overriding parental block code

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

Welcome to the TechLore Community. Don't you hate it when people don't disable passwords before they sell their used equipment. It's like selling your old car without giving the new owners the ignition key. Thankfully, TechLore's got the answer.

First, let's get that parental lock disabled. In the password screen, type in the code 4357, which is the master code to the Sony KV-27FS13. After you use the master password, you will need to enter a new password. Pick one you can remember. After that is done, enter the TV's setup menu and adjust the parental controls using your new password, or disable it entirely.

Second, you do not need to buy a replacement manual from Sony. A .pdf version of the manual for your TV can be downloaded from Sony's e-support site. Click here to download your manual.

Please don't forget to tell 10 of your dearest friends about TechLore. You wouldn't want to keep this site a secret... would you???

SOURCE: parental control

Try this Hit "Menu" and go select the "Lock" sub-menu. It should ask you for a password. Initially the password for the US sets are set to 0 - 0 - 0 - 0.
If that does not work try 7 - 7 - 7 - 7. Once it accepts your password see if you have any locks enabled and turn them off.

SOURCE: I need to know what channel to switch to in order

It is a general question just try my idea to connect to the DVD player channel.
In the remote you may find any of the below button, press it.
1. DTH 2. DVD 3. VIDEO
If not just call the customer care help line to assist through online..
(Before that remember one thing you have to connect the dvd player wire in the TV to activate the DVD channel)
Thank you.

Resetting v chip


I heard that if you hold the channel button on either the Remote or TV up and hold the volume button on either the Remote of TV down at the same time then it resets the password to 0000. Then type in that code. I'm not sure if this is going to work, though.

Bypass V-Chip Mitsubishi TV


Bypassing the V-Chip Lock on most Mitsubishi sets:
Mitsubishi sets use a four-digit passcode that is required to view a V-Chip locked program, view the locked TV, cancel the lock, or enter the V-Chip lock menus.
If you don't have the passcode, it is easy to bypass. This is neccessary if you forgot the code, purchased the set used, or if you simply don't feel like searching through your files to find it.

To bypass the V-chip: You can view the locked shows by pressing the number 9 and QV buttons on the remote at the same time, whenever your passcode is requested. This process temporarily unlocks the TV.

To reset the code: When you use the button combination 9 and QV while entering the V-Chip Lock menu, this process deletes your old passcode and prompts you to enter a new passcode.
