When all else fails try this.
With the tv on, with your remote punch in this series of commands--menu , 2, 4, 7, 0 the tv will show the option menu.
Make sure "initialize" is highlighted. if it is press "enter" on the remote. Wait a few seconds. The tv will default to customer factory settings, in other words the way the tv was when it came out of the box. DO NOT HIGHLIGHT ANYTHING ELSE IN THE OPTION MENU !!!!!!!!!

Good luck

My tv is locked and asking for a an unlock code. I have never had a lock code on the tv since i bought it several years ago. How can I reset or bypass this feature. BTW mt TV is a 48-50" projection...


Hello
I thinks that you have its original remote handset with you now, and posts this solution. If you don't have it, either buy a new original remote handset or try to get it from any of your friends and relatives, who owns the same model of Mitsubishi Tv, you have now; only to unlock it. After unlock, you can use any other remote control.
Mitsubishi sets use a four-digit code for a V-Chip locked program, view a locked TV, cancel the lock, or to enter the V-Chip lock menus. You can view the locked shows on the TV set by pressing the number 9 and QV buttons on the remote at the same time, whenever your code is requested. This process temporarily unlocks the TV and asks you to enter a new code.
OK.

Need tv code, tv is locked


Hello,

Turn on the TV and grab the remote. In most cases, you will need the original remote to unlock the TV if you aren't sure of the unlock code. If you don't have the original remote, you will need to purchase one.
2
Look at the screen. If you see a blank screen with a red key on the bottom of the screen, press 'Function' and 'Mute' at the same time. This should unlock the channel. This is an option for people who want the TV to stay locked but, want to be able to bypass the lock to watch a certain show or channel. All other channels will remain locked and the TV will fully lock when it is turned off.
3
Unlock all of the channels on the TV by entering the factory reset code. There are three main reset codes that TV manufacturers set. These are 0711, 6688 and 3308. Try each one until you find the one that works. This will reset the TV to original factory settings. When you do this, you will loose any information that you have stored in the TV, such as favorite channels, automatic timers and the clock. You will have to go through the full initial set up.
4
Call the technical support service number in your owner's manual if none of those codes work. A technician can help you troubleshoot the television because the problem may not be the locking control. When you call, make sure that you have the model number and serial number of the TV.
5
Take your television to a TV repair shop. In some cases, a professional who access to wiring diagrams for your television set may have to rewire certain components in order for the television to unlock. This is usually the case when the TV locks by itself while it is on.

Also note that forgotten the passcode of your Mitsubishi TV. You can make it alive without knowing the passcode. Please follow
V_Chip lock bypassing prodedure is as follows
You can view your locked TV, cancel the lock, or enter the V_chip lock menus.

This is done by pressing the number "9" and "QV" buttons on the remote TV control at the same time, when your passcode is requested. This process temporarily unlocks the TV.
When entering the V_Chip lock menu, this process deletes your old passcode and prompts you to enter a new passcode.


I hope this will help to solve the problem...

V-chip block passcode


Hello
You must have its original remote control handset to unlock your Mitsubishi tv.

After you set the lock, you must use your pass code

to view a locked program, view the locked TV, view

a locked channel, cancel the lock, or enter the Lock

menus.

If you forget your pass code, you can view the locked

TV without entering your pass code. When you are

prompted for your pass code, press the number 9 and

QV keys on the TV remote control at the same time. This

process temporarily unlocks the TV.

When entering the Lock menu, this process deletes

your old pass code and prompts you to enter a new

pass code.

• You can either enter a new pass code to open the

Lock menu and make changes or press EXIT to close

the menu.

• If any of the locks are turned on and you exit the

menus when prompted for a new code, the old

code and all lock settings are retained.

• If all locks are turned off and you exit the menus

when prompted for a new code, then the previous
code is erased.
OK.

How to change the v chip code to a mitsubishi medallion projection tv 62


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.
Good luck, and let us know how you made out with this TV set.

Input is locked - code needed to unlock


If you have a Mitsubishi remote or the one that came with the TV, you can try the following.

Select the input.
When it asks for the code press and hold the QV button on the remote, then press the number 9.
That should unlock the input.
Then navigate through the menu and turn off the input lock, or any other locks that may have been set with the same key combo listed above.

I hope that this helps you with this issue.
Thanks for usning Fixya.
