    Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately our TV is so old (at least 10 years), we have no idea where the manual is.

    Your comment helped tremendously. I was able to figure it out. Thanks so much.

Somehow your parental lock got turned on. You will have to see if you can find it in the menu and turn it off. You should be able to find the instructions in the owner's manual as to how to do this if you can't figure it out. It will probably ask you for your password. If you do not know your password, the owner's manual will tell you how to reset it. What is the model number of the tv?

Is the sunvic sp2 a 2channel timer please


Yes. It appears the Sunvix SP2 is 2-channel timer.
http://www.sunvic.co.uk/documentation/Programmer_Select_207.pdf

Two-channel means CH central heat and WH water heater can be programmed separately, and each can have its own timing program.
pg 3

The timer offers pre-programmed options for both CH and WH, which can be used, or program your own schedule. chart pg 5 and steps pg 3

Limitations: both channels operate on same clock time, and dip switch setting. pg 6. So the WH cannot be programmed for 5-2 weekdays-weekends and CH programmed for 24 hour.
As a convenience for varied work schedules, Sometimes people use the 5-2 weekday-weekend option so 2 days of week can have different programming, and then fudge current day setting during the set-current-time step pg2 so the 'weekend days' are actually moved to wedsday-thursday instead of sat-sun.

Option: both CH and WH timer programs can be linked and follow same programming by using copy button. pg 5

Using advance button on either side of timer, pg 3-4, WH and CH timing schedules can be overridden temporarily until next set point is reached. Then regular programming automatically resumes.
If override or Advance button is pushed for either CH or WH, it reverses whatever programming is in effect. On becomes off, or off becomes on. However if CH thermostat is satisfied and room temperature has not fallen below thermostat set point, then override will not turn CH on, but override will turn CH off. Same for WH override: If cylinder thermostat is satisfied with internal water temperature, the water heater will not turn on and heat more water, but the override can turn water cylinder off.

Unit requires Cr2033 lithium button battery. Pg 6. Probably lasts 3-5 years. Programming is protected for 30 days from power outage.
If programming is lost, change battery, the reset timer and reprogram to restore functionality.

Maybe Try Unplugging It? Some T.v's Also Have A Reset On Them. If That Doesn't Help Please List The Specific Make And Model.

WILL NOT ALLOW ME TO WATCH ANY CHANNELS


If you are on a protected channel where you are getting the "Protected Program by TV-etc" you have to get out of that channel and go to a channel that is not protected. That will allow you to hit your "Menu" button and access the V-Chip settings on your TV. Depending on the type of TV you have, you may end up using your Vol Up button as a sort of "Enter" button. Hope that helps!

Channels blocked


Hello to all, go to your TV menu and go to V-chip set up, then go thru and see that you don't have any channels blocked. If you do and you are watching a show with that rating, you will receive the "protected program message".

Have a great day!
