Resetting parental controls

Hi!
We purchased a Visio 26" LCD HDTV recently. Model number: Visio VW26L HDTV20F Serial number: LFABBBH5204156
One of the kids figured out (or found?) the password we had set on the parental controls to block out several objectionable channels and changed it to something he cannot remember.
Is there a way to reset this at all? and if so, is it possible to increase the number of digits?
Much thanks in advance!

    Thanks!
    I sent an email to vizio.com before trying fixya.com.
    this is their reply:
    I have reviewed email regards to your VIZIO TV.

    1.There are 5 different codes that you can try in addition to the 0000 you can try 5280, 2580, 8202, 8205 and 5351, one of those should unlock the television.

    2. Or if the codes don?t work, you should go to the local VIZIO repair center and ask them to unlock the TV for you.

    Unfortunately, none of them worked. I'll call the Vizio folks to actually speak with someone. And if all else fails, I may pop the back off to look for the battery that keeps the memory intact, like on motherboards.

    I will make a point of posting the results however it ends up.

    Thanks for your answer--and especially for such a quick response!

    Ooops!
    I missed the last code in the line there. It worked!

There seems that only 4 digits are the max but I could be mistaken, as far as reseting the password there is nothing listed on the Vizio website in the manuals ect for reseting the parental controls, probably due to security for the owner.

But there is a solution
if you call 877 MY V I Z I O
with you model number of your unit and make them aware of the parental lock issue there might be a way for them to explain the resting everything back to factory settings.
