Question about Insignia I-LC23Q1 23 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
I recently purchased a t.v. and it was an off the shelf item and someone had set the v chip password. I've tried several passwords starting with the obvious and just making things up. The store I bought it from can't help me and the manufacturer will not help me because it was an open box item. Does anyone know a universal reset code that I can use to fix this problem? I would greatly appreciate anyone's advice on this issue. Thanks, Michelle
The default password for this model is 1234. If you have never changed the password, it should still be the same. I hope this was helpful, best wishes.

Tips for a great answer:
Open up your computer case. You need physical access to the motherboard to complete this procedure
Find a circular, (mostly) silver metallic object on the motherboard. This is the CMOS battery
CAREFULLY remove the CMOS battery, avoid touching it with your fingers, and leave it out for about 120 seconds. This will flush the CMOS memory which stores the BIOS password and all other configuration. (See Warnings)
Set the battery back into place and power on the computer
The computer should then warn you that the CMOS configuration could not be found. You can either reconfigure it yourself or restore defaults. Restoring the default configuration should be fine.
You will notice that the BIOS password has been cleared and you can boot without it. You may reset the BIOS password to something else by going into the BIOS configuration and setting a new User Password (The Supervisor Password controls access to the BIOS, NOT the computer!)
Hope this helps
