Question about Sanyo DWM-390 DVD Player

Can't Reprogram the TV Guardian code

I purchased a new Sanyo DWM-390 with TV Guardian. While at a friends house, he programmed the code for the guardian, and now can't remember the code. It was programmed back in 2003, so it's understandable that he might forget. Is there a special code to get into it to reprogram the code. I woiuld like to watch DVD's that have religious content on them, and it still bleeps out part of the movie. PLEASE HELP ME, OF YOU CAN.!!! Thank you for your time. Susan

Forgotten Parental Control password can be bypassed/cleared by entering "788444" even if 4 digits "----" appears, then press ENT to clear the current password. You can then enter a new parental control password.

My grandfather cant remember the code for parental controls. it is stuck on pg. can it be reset with out the code


Forgotten the parental control password? there is a way around this. According to the user manual (page 34) for this particular model:

Enter "788444" even if 4 digits "----" appears, then press [ENT]
to clear the current password.
Enter a new password and set the parental lock level again if required.

Note: DVD video discs may or may not respond to the parental lock
settings. Make sure this function works with your DVD video
discs.

You need the original unit's remote to do this. It cannot be done without it.

There is a .pdf of the user manual online.

I hope this helps a tad.

Need remote


The best bet is to contact Sanyo and to obtain a replacement remote, you can do that either by contacting Sanyo direct or finding their closest authorised repair agent. I don't reccomend getting a universal one as the majority of the time, they do not work. Be prepared to find the remote may be very expensive in some cases. I hope this helps.

I need the 3 digit setup code for a DWM-380 Sanyo DVD player to work with my universal remote. I tried 649 and 654 to no avail. Please Help!!!! John Baker


Hi,

Try 147 - that is one for Sanyo DVD players.

Also try 003, 007, 010, 020, 053, 057, 082, 102, 187, 166, 187, 214, 266, 511.

Hope one of those works for you. Be aware though that depending on the remote you are using, it may or may not be programmed with the right code for this Sanyo DVD player.

Anyway I hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a sanyo dvd player dwm-395. how do i unlock it w/o remot


For the DVM-390 model, I believe this solution should work on the DVM-395 model - Push and hold down the Open/Close button until "UN-LOC" appears on the FL display (or "Disc Tray Unlocked" appears on the TV screen).

Subtitles on Sanyo DVD Player Model DMW-380


For the DVM-390 model, the above problem can be due to the TV Guardian (TVG) mode. I would go to the intial setting options and under Language turn the TVG mode to "Off" and see if that allows the subtitle languages to appear on screen.

I have the manual for the dwm-380 sanyo dvd with tvg.
Go to setup. Then Parental controls. Then scroll down to where you can enter a 4 digit code. To unlock and reset, enter 788444. I know this is 6 digits punch in all 6 then hit enter. This will unlock it. Next, you enter in your 4 digit number. This is your personal code. This may or may not work on other models. Take care.
