If that function was put in use by the previous owner, the fastest way to change the parental lock out would be to contact your friend and get the access code from them.
Since the set probably uses a bit of flash memory to store the access code and other settings, if an individual chip, that would have to be physically removed and replaced.
If you can locate service information on your set, it will likely contain a procedure to set the memory back to factory default.

How to disable TV-G


Press the Menu button on your remote.Scroll through the menu to the smart lock feature. The access code will be 0711 unless it has been changed. If this is not the correct code or you lost the code just unplug the unit for about 30 seconds. The 0711 code will then work. You can then chose to turn the Master Block off or change your blocked rating settings.

How to reset the parental control code - I forgot the code and want to reset with a new one


This is what I found in the instruction manual on this and I posted it here for you. Try using 3355 for the code and everything else listed here. If that doesn't work, try the very last tip which tells you how to do a factory reset and repeat the first step using the 3355 as the code.

Here's the instructions from manual:

Parental Control
Parental Control allows you to block certain channels or programs so children cannot view
programs that are not age appropriate.
To enter the Parental Control menu, you need an
access code. The first time you enter, use access
code 3355. See "Setting an Access Code" on
page 33 for information on creating a new access
code.
You can set the following options to block
content:
• Channel Lock — Blocks selected channels
• Movie Rating — Blocks movies based on their rating (G, PG, PG-13, R, NC-17, and X)
• TV Ratings — Blocks TV shows based on their rating
• Block Options — Turns on or off all your parental control settings
NOTE: You can use Clear All to unblock the channels and programs that you have set.
NOTE: If the Block Control in the Parental Control menu is enabled, all the sub screens in POP (POP1,
POP3 and POP12) mode will be blank



Setting an Access Code m
After you enter the Parental Control menu for the first time, you can set your own four-digit access
code. If for any reason you lose or forget your access code, you can use the default code.
1 In the Parental Control menu, select Change Code.
2 Using the number pad on the remote control, enter a new access code.
3 Select Exit.




Reset the original factory defaults. Press Menu on the remote
control, select Setup, and then select Factory Reset

HOW CAN I GET PROTECTED PROGRAM TV-PG OFF MY TV?


This problem is caused by your TV's V-chip setting.

To fix the problem:

Push the "Menu" button (on either the remote or the TV's fromt panel).
Use the "Channel Down" button to go to "V-CHIP SETUP"
Use the "Volume Up" button to select it.
In the V-chip setup screen, the rating that is selected by the user as viewable will allow that rating and only lower ratings to be viewed on that TV. (If TV-G) is selected, then any programs rated higher than TV-G will be blocked.

So, the easistway to get rid of any blocking is to set the rating to TV-MA (mature), and then any and all programs will be viewable on that set. Select "TV-MA" by hitting the "Volume Up" button after you have scrolled down to that rating with the "Channel Down" button.

Then hit "Menu" to exit out of the settings and saave your changes.
