Reset child lock code on Panasonic Viera TH-42PX80U Plasma TV

After weeks of scouring the chat threads and trying to figure out the solution, I finally got a response from panasonic. I have decided to post a solution instead of a problem - as I know i can't be the only one that has had this problem.

How to Overcome / Reset the Child Lock security code if you have forgotten the number on a Panasonic Viera TH-42PX80 Plasma TV.

Thank you for your inquiry. You will need to reset the television.

To reset the television hold the volume - on the television and menu on the remote simultaneously until self check is displayed.

Unplug the unit for about 30 seconds.

Reconnect the unit and power it on and complete the first time setup.

This should resolve your issue. Please let us know if further assistance is needed. Thank you for contacting Panasonic.

SOURCE: child lock

From the main menu choose "Parental Controls;" it's option six.

  • Step 2 Choose the first option, V-Chip TV Rating Limit, and using the arrow keys and the OK button on the remote, scroll through until the TV-MA rating appears. Press the right arrow button to move the highlight over to the "Status" field and toggle to "View." Press the OK button. This will set the age-based ratings to Mature.
  • Step 3 From the Parental Controls menu, select the second option, V-Chip Movie Ratings Limit and change the rating to TV_MA and the "Status" to "View."
  • Step 4 From the Parental Controls menu select the third option, V-Chip Unrated Program Block and select item one, which will be "View."
  • Step 5 Select the fourth option, which is "Channel Block." Highlight the Channel field and using the channel up and down buttons, go through and check they are all set to 'View." Any set to "Block" will need to be toggled back to View.
  • Step 6 Lock the controls to activate the changes using item six on the "Parental Controls" menu.

    SOURCE: forgot my lock code and need to reset it.

    Did you try unplugging wait a few minutes then plug in again. This should return everything to original factory settings.

    SOURCE: my panasonic viera plasma TH-42PX80U

    Hi:
    You will need to count the number of red led blinks on the power indicator, if it is at least 10 then replace the power supply it is faulty, In my years of servicing panasonic Plasma, power supply failure is about the most common failue in this class of television from this manufacture.

    You can buy an HDMI to DVI adapter (around 20$) to connect your HDMI computer cable to your TV. You will need separates audios cables, right and left, to bring the sound to the TV.

    Panasonic viera 42 inch plasma, comcast digital cable. screen goes totally green. switch to comcast guide, green disappeared and switched channels, then back to original channel and all was normal. it...


    It sound like you are using a component video connection to the TV, which is of variable specification. Try a different type of video feed from your Comcast box

    Panasonic Viera TH-50PX60U Plasma is stuck on one channel. Only the power function works on the remote and only the On/Off function works on the TV. Any ideas??


    Forced to factory default: press and hold [VOLUME ( - )] on the TV and press [MENU] on the remote 2 seconds. Exit: Unplug Power to reset.
    If it does not help, the main board need to replace. For further questions, please add your comment.

    You won't believe this. I went over the whole copy of your TV manual. And for this problem, it says " consult your local dealer".
    Here are the toll free numbers from the manual.
