Question about Vizio VW32L 32 in. LCD HDTV

Open Question

After I got a new cable box today, the tv screen is now stuck with "set parental control pin; enter a 4 digit numeric pin and press select" I can't do anything with this screen. Do you have any ideas on how to get out of this? (I have a 32" Vizio)

SOURCE: Parental Control Lock

I'm really guessing here - -but while you're in the parental controls screen I believe you can use 0-0-0-0 as a backdoor key. It's different for every manufacturer, Philips uses 0-7-1-1 example. But the users's manual for that TV says that the "default" is 0-0-0-0.. Don't really understand their use of that terminology so it's merely a guess... But here's something I am really sure of;;; The owner's manual can be downloaded for free at the Vizio web site: http://www.vizio.com/support/downloads/ and their support line is: 1-888-849-4623 or you can email tech support at: techsupport@vizio.com Hope this helps. Good Luck Bill
