    I have the same problem. I had satellite installed today and the screen on my TV went to black, then "Program Protected TV-PG". The other 3 house sets were fine. I don't have the original remote so don't know what to do....

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!

To change the menu language of the TV using the remote:

Display the menu screen.
• Press [MENU].
6 menu items will be displayed. The third item will be ENG/ESP/FRA

Select "ENG/ESP/FRA".
• Using [CH up / CH down] buttons, select "[ENG]/ESP/FRA".

Every time you press [VOL up / VOL down] buttons, the language
will be advance to the next. Select the language. When ENG is selected, exit by pressing [MENU]

If you are trying to change the AUDIO of the TV, simply press the [AUDIO] button on the remote. This will advance the selection between MAIN, SAP and MONO. MAIN is the native language of the program (often in stereo), SAP is "secondary audio program" - which is usually a second language, but may be an audio source not related to the picture at all. MONO is monophonic, or a single sound source that is the result of combining the LEFT and RIGHT stereo channels to one output or speaker. This selection is often a downgraded version of the stereo output provided by the MAIN audio selection - but may be useful under certain conditions.

You can review your manual here. Pg. 31 has details for the menu display language selection and pg. 16 has details for audio language selection.

HOW CAN I GET PROTECTED PROGRAM TV-PG OFF MY TV?


This problem is caused by your TV's V-chip setting.

To fix the problem:

Push the "Menu" button (on either the remote or the TV's fromt panel).
Use the "Channel Down" button to go to "V-CHIP SETUP"
Use the "Volume Up" button to select it.
In the V-chip setup screen, the rating that is selected by the user as viewable will allow that rating and only lower ratings to be viewed on that TV. (If TV-G) is selected, then any programs rated higher than TV-G will be blocked.

So, the easistway to get rid of any blocking is to set the rating to TV-MA (mature), and then any and all programs will be viewable on that set. Select "TV-MA" by hitting the "Volume Up" button after you have scrolled down to that rating with the "Channel Down" button.

Then hit "Menu" to exit out of the settings and saave your changes.
