I found this to work on my Toshiba TV/VHS combo MV19M4 after trying others suggestions that had worked on similar models but nothing worked on mine. Maybe it will work for yours. Follow these steps:

1: Unplug the TV for 1 minute then plug it back in.
2: In the menu select "TV Set Up".
3: Move the blinking block to beside "V-CHIP Set" BUT DO NOT SELECT IT.
4: Hold in the number 1 button on the remote.
5: Hold in the volume down button on the TV.

Your TV will turn off. Give it a few seconds to reset itself and then turn it back on and you will have to completely reprogram your settings. When you go to the V-CHIP settings it will ask for your new code.

Bios password

Removing the cmos and replacing will not work, Toshiba uses an 8 pin surface mount epprom chip where the imformation is stored, removing power will not work. If you are the original owner of the laptop, Toshiba will reset the bios password for a fee " $100.00 " the only other option is to replace the epprom chip "available on ebay" but it is so small you will need somebody who is familiar with this type of work. The third option is sellers on ebay claim they can address this, be very carefull, not all can deliver.

Would you like to bypass, defeat or reset your Toshiba 42HP95 Plasma TV Parental V-Chip parental lock?

Have you forgotten your VChip PIN, passcode or password?

If you forget your V-Chip passcode, you can view the locked TV without entering your password:

  • When your PIN is requested, simply press RECALL four times withing five seconds.
  • The VChip passcode will be reset and you can enter a new passcode if desired.

I hope that helps.

Need to remove a bios password on a toshiba satellite L675

basically your only option is to take it to a Toshiba dealer or repair depot with proof f ownership. Then they can reset things for you. Some charge for this, some don't but most shops want to make sure you own it which is why you need the bill of sale. It only takes a minutes and uses a master password (you won't find that out on the net anywhere )so unless they are certified by Toshiba a shop won;t have this.
It is a pain to have to do to reset it but the password is stored on a chip on the motherboard and other than replacing ihe chip this is the only way around it.

Resetting the v-chip password so i can remove it and watch all that i want

I had the same problem. Here's what Toshiba emailed to me:

  1. Disconnect the AC power for at least one minute to reset the clock.
  2. Adjust the volume to the minimum using the Volume down button on the front of the unit.
  3. Press and hold the Volume down button on the front of the unit and the 0 button on the remote control at the same time, holding them down for at least 10 seconds.
  4. The user menu will appear with the V-Chip cursor blinking.
  5. Press the ENTER key on the remote control and the NEW PASSWORD menu will appear.
  6. Enter your new password.
Hope that helps!!

V chip

The V-chip has a 4 digit numerical password in order to keep older children from changing its settings. However, it can be overridden by savvier youth who read the television's manual to find out how to reset the password to 0000 (built into the V-chip in case the parents themselves forget the password that they set).
