We bought a 20 inch 2006 tv second hand. There is a password on it that we have no way of knowing. How do we over-ride this? TV won't allow us to scroll to change pasword option It is password for P-LOCK--please someone help!

    I called insignia co. They wouldn't give me a solution. They told me it was against their co. policy to over-ride the password. I went onto insignia web site and downloaded the owners manual for my model number, and guess what? The code to over-ride it was there. Problem solved!! Thank you Scotty for getting the ball rollin' and problem was fixed!!!

Call the company, they usually have a back door route. We had a nice Viewsonic 42" LCD TV at work and they had us push something like vol + power to remove password, then we could put in a new password.

Vizio LCD 37 Inch Turns Off Randomly

I had a similar problem with my 32 inch plasma tv. I called vizio's
1 800 number and the guy said to unplug the tv from the wall and hold down the power button for a minute and then plug the tv back in outlet and turn on. And it works I guess from what I understood from his heavy accent was that the tv retains power and this resets it somehow. hope that was helpfull!!

If you forget your password, simultaneously press and hold the MENU/ OK button on the front panel and VOL- button on the remote for three seconds. This resets the password and unlocks the TV.
