What you want to do is contact Polaroid Customer Support and tell them the situation and they will give you a factory default code for the v-chip. The Polariod C.S. # is 1-800-605-5364. They should be able to help you without any problems. Hope this helps...

TV power button on my RCA True Flat 27" screen TV


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.
From the main menu choose "Parental Controls;" it's option six.
Choose 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.
From the Parental Controls menu, select the second option, V-Chip Movie Ratings Limit and change the rating to TV_MA and the "Status" to "View."
From the Parental Controls menu select the third option, V-Chip Unrated Program Block and select item one, which will be "View."
Select 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.

A code was entered on my panasonic tv. i want to get the channel lock off can't remember the code.


Hello
There is one way to unlock your Panasonic TV. There is a procedure. Follow it and see whether your set can be unlocked or not. In most Pansonic sets this will work.

Panasonic sets need to be reset to clear the v-chip settings. To do this, put it in standby mode, then press the POWER and ACTION buttons at the same time and then turn the power off. The set should reset to the factory defaults, and reset the v-chip.
You must have its original remote control to do this effective.
