V-Chip enabled on an Admiral JSJ12318 TV

I have a pretty blue Admiral 12 inch TV here that a customer brought in with the V-Chip enabled. The customer states that a friend set the V-Chip code for TV-14 and set the password as a joke. They can't remember what the password is.

We've called Sharp (the manufacturer of the set even though it's branded Admiral) and their suggestion of Up Channel/Down Channel and Down Volume/ Up Channel didn't do anything.

Any suggestion on how to clear the V-Chip?

Thanks

SOURCE: Resetting V-Chip pin code

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.

I have moved to Poland from the uk and brought my bush 26 inch tv with me and now it can only catch the audio of channels and not the video. Can anyone help?


Hello, you will need to change the frequency chip which modulates the picture. Each country has its own video scan rate. Most of the countries use the same audio chip but not the picture/video scan chip. A technician should do it for you for a reasonable price. I hope I have helped.

55HT79 HITACHI BLUE POWER LIGHT BLINKS ON AND OFF.


I can't help you because after 26 months of ownership mine is doing the same thing (started on 7-12-09). Judging by the number of people with the same complaint I believe Hitachi knows that they have bad boards but refuses to replace them for customers unless they are within warranty. It also explains why the merchant that sold it to me in 2007 stopped offering Hitachi in 2008.

I'm disgusted because I'm anticipating a $300-$500 repair bill simply because Hitachi's design did not provide an external way of resetting it. Impossible to get to the menu to do a reset within 12 seconds before it starts the powering on booting cycle again.

Adding salt to the injury, mine is wall mounted and repair people will only work on it if it is readily accessilble when they walk in the door or if it is brought to the shop. Know what a 55" plasma TV weighs? Too much.

Blue shadow


No. I would suspect it being a Optical Block issue. I is not a pretty repair not to mention the cost factor. If you could get in touch with Hitachi Customer Service they could lead you to s service facility that could comfirm what I think.

Blue convergence is off right will not adjust


Hi. there is a malfunction that has occurred within the convergence chip that is located on the PC board(demod). this is a Hybrid chip that controls the calibrations of the RGB streams. If this chip becomes unstable, it will not allow proper calibrations.

Replacing this failed chip will fix this issue.

The actual sony chip is not available at this time but, there is a compatible chip that will work with your set. i will post a link to the affected part below.

Turn tv on, shuts immediately off.


Same problem with my 28 inch 16:9 CRT Sanyo. I usually fix it by cutting the power to the outlet and then it works fine. Had it into the repair shop - and of course it never acts up there...
