This what worked on my 27 inch model.. 1. Hit the Menu button on the TV. 2. 'INPUT SECRET No.' should appear. 3. Press and hold both VOL (+) and CH DOWN (9) on the TV set simultaneously until the message 'INPUT SECRET No.' disappears. 4. The vchip settings should be disabled now and the Parental controls menu should be presented, 'disable' Status if need be.

Hello I am seeing a blue screen and a lock on the bottom left corner. I am unable to change channels or input. Please advise.


Your Apex Tv is locked. You must unlock it and reset all the V-chip settings once more. To unlock it do the following.

Apex TVs use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The override code for many models is 6688. Other sets may not have one, or may have a default code of 1225 instead of an override code.

1. To use the override code:

2. Hit the MENU key to get to the menus.

3. Go down to the SYSTEM menu and hit the right arrow on the remote control.

4. Once in the SYSTEM menu, go to PARENTAL GUIDE. It will ask for your code.

5. Enter the override code listed above. From here, you can turn on and off different rating restrictions, as well as set a new code.
No matter what the V-chip code is set to, the override code will still work. If you have a blank screen with a red key on the bottom left, simply press the (function or F) button and the mute button at the same time. This will unlock the screen and allow you to view the channel as desired

Some of the channels are blocked, don't know password

If you set password, out of luck. If no password was ever set then try either all zero's or 1234

It wont play discs or displays"no Disc". the sreen has distortion and the vertical display is "wavy". My 4 yr old grandson may have moved the laser mechanism in some way. Please advise as to what can be...

Hmmm, if it is unable to play any DVD/CD then the laser machenism is disturbed, the one and only solution is to contact the vendor for a check. :-(

And keep such things away from children, as they may be dangerous for them.

Lost Codes -Need Remedy

I scoured the internet on how to reset the V-CHIP on my Toshiba TV/VHS combo MV19M4 and could not find the solution. I tried others suggestions that had worked on similar models but nothing worked so I started experimenting and I figured it out! Follow these steps:

1: Unplug the TV for 1 minute then plug it back in.
2: In the menu select "TV Set Up".
3: Move the blinking block to beside "V-CHIP Set" BUT DO NOT SELECT IT.
4: Hold in the number 1 button on the remote.
5: Hold in the volume down button on the TV.

Your TV will turn off. Give it a few seconds to reset itself and then turn it back on and you will have to completely reprogram your settings. When you go to the V-CHIP settings it will ask for your new code.

Please try and explain more what you wish to do, and what the problem is with your set. The "Censor" or v-chip is a device designed to allow parental control over what type of programs children can watch. If you meant "sensor" then i assume you mean the reciever for the signal from the remote control - these rarely stop working if the front of the sensor is clean - the problem is almost certainly in the remote. Some(but very few)televisions allow you to switch off the video signal so you can just hear audio, but this will not help you to watch dvds or play video games in any way. Please clarify what help you need, as to be honest your question makes no sense - if you are unsure of the names of things then please try to describe them and i can hopefully help you out :)
