Look at the screen. If you see a red key on the bottom of the screen,
press "Function" and "Mute" on the remote at the same time.
This will unlock the channel. Do this if you want to bypass the lock to watch a
certain show or channel while leaving the TV locked. All other channels will
remain locked and the TV will lock again when it is turned off.
• Unlock all of the channels on the TV by
entering 0711 or 3308. These are the Jensen factory reset codes that will reset
the TV to the original factory settings. By doing this, you will loose any
information that you have stored in the TV, such as channel labels and
schedules. You will have to program the TV again by going through the entire
initial set up.
•Call the technical support service number
in your owner's manual if neither of those codes work. A technician can help
you troubleshoot the television as the problem may not be the parental lock
feature. Have the model number and serial number of the TV available when you
• Take your television to a TV repair shop if neither of the codes work and the TV locked by itself while it was turned on. In this case, the TV may need to be rewired

RCA TVs come with a
child lock capability called V-Chip. It's a parental control system which
allows you to block programs and films by content, age-based ratings and the
ratings which come with the movies. The parental control is a code, sent by the
broadcaster to your television. The V-Chip will not work if the broadcaster doesn't
send the control, or if the parental controls are switched off or unlocked. The
controls are set up in the TV's main menu. The default is off.
the main menu choose "Parental Controls;" it's option six.
the first option, V-Chip TV Rating Limit, and using the arrow keys and the OK
button on the remote, scroll through until the TV-MA rating appears. Press the
right arrow button to move the highlight over to the "Status" field
and toggle to "View." Press the OK button. This will set the
age-based ratings to Mature.
the Parental Controls menu, select the second option, V-Chip Movie Ratings
Limit and change the rating to TV_MA and the "Status" to
the Parental Controls menu select the third option, V-Chip Unrated Program
Block and select item one, which will be "View."
the fourth option, which is "Channel Block." Highlight the Channel
field and using the channel up and down buttons, go through and check they are
all set to 'View." Any set to "Block" will need to be toggled
back to View.
Lock the controls to activate the changes using item six on the "Parental Controls" menu

1. To use the override code:
2. Hit the MENU key to get to the menus.
3. Go down to the SYSTEM menu and hit the right arrow on the remote control.
4. Once in the SYSTEM menu, go to PARENTAL GUIDE. It will ask for your code.
5. Enter the override code listed above. From here, you can turn on and off different rating restrictions, as well as set a new code.
No matter what the V-chip code is set to, the override code will still work. If you have a blank screen with a red key on the bottom left, simply press the (function or F) button and the mute button at the same time. This will unlock the screen and allow you to view the channel as desired
