    All you have to do is turn the TV on and turn to a channel that doesn't
    prompt the V-chip password (even if it's snowy) and hold down the
    volume (down -) button on the main unit while holding down the number
    "0" on the remote control. It might take a few tries, and you might
    need to change the TV channel for some reason but if done correctly,
    either the TV will turn off, or the menu screen will pop up and ask if
    you want to set the vchip password, either way you should be able to
    watch your TV now! :)

    or try this:

    Press the following
    buttons on the remote, one at a time. (Note: You must be in the
    password entry screen) Press, Mute, Display,Clear and Reset, this
    unlocks parental controls and you can now re-enter a new password.
    and hold Menu on the TV AND volume down on the remote for 3 seconds.
    Nothing will appear on the screen, and the Parental Controls will
    unlock, and you can re-enter a new password with the LOCK PARENTAL

My Sansui TV was struck by lightning and the repair company cannot get the part STRF 6686 to fix it.

That is an odd regulator chip that you seek, so odd, that there is not a listing anywhere. Even with the people that make the chips in this series. Can you please check that it is not an STRF6656 or an STRF6668. These at least have datasheets from suppliers, meaning at some point they were obtainable. It may be if the set has been hit by lightning, that the chip is actually burnt, and the numbers a little hard to see. It is possible that it is a low volume part made specially for sansui, but I doubt it.
What is the model of the TV as well. Cheers

Sansui TV, V chip accidentally set

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!

HELP ME PLEASE............


You need to be more specific with the model number. Most Sansui TVs have model numbers like "SAN2701" plus a version letter like "Version A"

Additionally, procedures for removing the Child Lock, Panel Lock and TV Lock are in the users manual.

In some models, for the V-Chip, the original code is 000000, if you want to clear the code, please press the keys VOL + and VOL - on the front panel at the same time.The password of the TV's V-Chip Set up or Movie V-Chip Set up may be changed at any time. Press UP or DOWN to input the password,then press to select OK or Cancel. Press menu to confirm your input.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as to the exact model and version of your Sansui TV, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
