To unlock the V-chip on any tv you must contact the Manufacture of the tv by their 1800 number and if this tv has a built in Dvd player, universal remotes will not code to the tv due to it being a 2 in 1 model. Most Direct tv services also cant program their remotes to these tvs due to the same nature.

Give Akai a call on their 1800- and see if they can go over their process of how to remove the v-chip lock. And get a estimate on a replacement remote.

When i press any button on the remote, its says locked on the tv. i would like to know a code to unlock the tv remote control and put it into use. thank you its samsung bn59-01006a


It sounds like the V-chip has locked you out of all programs. Page 18 of this manual tells the unlock code for the V-chip that comes from the factory. It also tells how to clear out a code if it has been forgotten. Here is the link:

My tv has a forgotten password on it to block certain channels. How do I reset it or get it off?


I believe Protron is an RCA subsidiary, so an RCA factory reset procedure may work for you. Try the following:

RCA TV:Most RCA and GE TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset procedure is different depending on the model. Try each method until you find one that works:
  1. Hold down MENU on the remote and VOLUME DOWN on the TV it's self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  2. Hold down the 0 on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN buttons on the TV its self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  3. Hold down the MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
  4. Hold down GO BACK on the remote and MENU on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
  5. Hold down EJECT on the front of the TV and the MENU button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
Depending on the model, one of the methods should unlock the V-chip. Now, if desired, you can change the settings on the V-chip by going to the MENU and going to PARENTAL CONTROLS, or on some sets, going to MENU and then going to TV SETUP, then to V-CHIP SET.
Sinotec:
If you have the original remote (RC-A07) for Sinotec tv, then press and hold down the Music button for about 10 seconds.

Need a password for my TV.(Polaroid) I never remember putting in a password on Tv. Now I have programs lock-then it says program locked enter password. I can't rememeber a password. Can you help me?????


Polaroid sets a defualt password for the V-Chip at the factory. The default is 1111, as listed on page 21 of the manual. I would recommend you either change the password to one that you'll remember, or disable the V-Chip entirely.

Bypass V-Chip Mitsubishi TV


Bypassing the V-Chip Lock on most Mitsubishi sets:
Mitsubishi sets use a four-digit passcode that is required to view a V-Chip locked program, view the locked TV, cancel the lock, or enter the V-Chip lock menus.
If you don't have the passcode, it is easy to bypass. This is neccessary if you forgot the code, purchased the set used, or if you simply don't feel like searching through your files to find it.

To bypass the V-chip: You can view the locked shows by pressing the number 9 and QV buttons on the remote at the same time, whenever your passcode is requested. This process temporarily unlocks the TV.

To reset the code: When you use the button combination 9 and QV while entering the V-Chip Lock menu, this process deletes your old passcode and prompts you to enter a new passcode.

How to setup/turn on/off the V-Chip


SETTING V-CHIP
This TV is fitted with a V-CHIP controller which provides you with channel viewing access controls
and restrictions. This function is to prevent your children from watching violence or sexual scenes
that you may choose to exclude.
Press the MENU button and press the SET + or – button to select the V-CHIP SET option,
then press the ENTER button.
Enter your password (4 digits) using the Direct channel selection buttons (0-9).
In the event of entering incorrect password press the RESET button. Then press the
ENTER button.
Enter the same password for confirmation, then press the ENTER button.
Press the SET + or – button to select the V-CHIP option.
Press the ENTER button to select the ON.
Press the SET + or – button to select the TV RATING or MOVIE RATING option. Press
the ENTER button.
Press the SET + or – button to select the desired rating for the applicable video or TV
channel. Press the ENTER button.

And to change or put in a new password:
NOTES:
• If you want to change password, follow steps 1 and 2 and select "CHANGE PASSWORD"
option then enter your new password.
• The V-Chip function is activated only on programs and tapes that have the rating signal.
• Once you block a program using the V-Chip function, the blocked program cannot be watched
based on the content of the show. When the program starts, the "INPUT PASSWORD" will
appear on the screen. When you want to release the V-Chip temporarily, enter the password.
If you change the channel or turn off the TV while the V-Chip function was temporarily released,
the original setting will be resumed. If you return to the channel you were watching you must
re-enter your password to temporarily release your V-Chip function again.
• When you watch the TV from the cable box or the VCR with the RF Modulator, then you release
the V-Chip temporarily, the V-Chip setting will not be resumed until you turn off the TV. The
TV channel is not used in this case.
• When changing the channel with the cable box or the VCR, approximately 10 seconds will
pass until the program appears.
