1.Press MENU to show the on-screen menu. 2. Press VOL+ or VOL- to highlight SET. 3. Press CH+ or CH- to highlight PARENTAL CONTROL. 4. Press VOL+ or VOL- to display the SECRET CODE screen. 5. Press VOL+ (on the remote) and the CH+ button on the front of the TV at the same time. 6. Press the Number buttons to enter a four-digit code. The code will appear on the screen as you enter it. The code "0000" is the default of the TV. If you have not set up a code previously,then "0000" is the code.You cannot use "0000" after you set your own code (unless you reset the code to "0000"). 7.

SOURCE: smartlock code

I used the following that I found on a site that compiles v-chip reset solutions:

Philips and Magnavox:

Philips sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The override code
for Philip sets is 0711, although it may say "Incorrect code" the first time
to trick you. If "Incorrect code" is displayed, simply enter 0711 again. To
use it hit the MENU key to get to the menus. Go up or down until you reach
AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK, depending on the model, and push the "right arrow"
key on the remote. Enter the override code, and enter it a second time if it
says it is incorrect.

Once in the AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK menu, go to BLOCK, and push the "right
arrow" key. Go to BLOCKING OPTIONS and press the "right arrow" key. Go to
MASTER DISABLE and press the "right arrow" key so that it says "MASTER
DISABLE ON". The v-chip is now reset.

Need code for tv remote to operate tv by the remote


Hello

You cannot change Parental

Control settings without

knowing the secret code. If

your code changes, someone

else has altered it and possibly
viewed blocked channels. Yet try the following procedure:-

Philips sets uses a four digit code to contro the V-Chip. The override code for Philips set is " 0711 "
although it may say "Incorrect code" the first time to trick you. If "Incorrect code" is displayed, simply enter 0711 again. To use it hit the MENU key to get to the menus. Go up or down until you reach AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK, depending on the model, and push the "right arrow" key on the remote. Enter the override code, and enter it a second time if it says it is incorrect.

Once in the AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK menu, go to BLOCK, and push the "right arrow" key. Go to BLOCKING OPTIONS and press the "right arrow" key. Go to MASTER DISABLE and press the "right arrow" key so that it says "MASTER DISABLE ON". The v-chip is now reset.
OK.
