Requires password when changing channels


Perhaps somebody set parental control on all of the channels. Many TVs and DVRs have a parental control feature that lets parents put a password lock on channels they consider unfit for their children.

I forgot my hopper password


Are you referring to the password for the parental controls on the receiver? If so, I can definitely look into getting this taken care of.
Can you email me directly at thomas.faust@dish.com so I can assist you with this? We will need to verify account sensitive information.

Parental lock code has been lost how can i unlock and reset code


Without a model number I'll have to list several solutions.

Push Vol Down and Chan Up on the set at the same time, Then go to password screen and enter 0000.

Reduce Vol to minimum and hold Vol Down on set and Vol Down on remote.

Hold Vol Down on TV while pushing "TV" button on remote for 3 seconds.

With TV OFF, press and hold Vol Down on TV and "Clear" on remote for five (5) seconds.

Press "Menu" button on TV and "TV" button on remote for 3 seconds.
Some models use the Vol Down button on remote instead of "TV" button on remote.

With Remote go to Parental Menu and enter 2211 for code.

Go to parental Menu and press Mute, Display, Clear, Reset in sequence on the Remote.

Press "Menu" button on the set and Vol Down on Remote for 3 to 5 seconds.

With remote go to parental screen and press Chan Up and Vol Up on the front of set for 3 to 5 seconds.

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. As per the issue you described, I think you are not able to switch to Channel 21. It means that it has either been deleted from the projection TV or you have set the parental control guides. To correct the former, access the Channel controls by pushing the "Menu" button and maneuver the channel icon, then press "+". Select "Favorite Channels," and then the "+" button again. Then type the number of the channel (21) you are not able to watch and press the "+" button one last time. To access the parental control channels, press "Menu" and maneuver the Parent icon, and press "+." Enter your four-digit password and use the arrows on the remote to change the overall settings. After performing this procedure hit the "+" key one more time. Now you will be able to watch channel 21 as before.

Please tell me the model number of your Unit so that I can provide you with model specific information.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
