When i turn to the cartoon channels for my kids the screen blacks out and says TV-Y7 [ ] this rating is blocked i tried putting the code 9999 as the parental code to see if that would work but it did not
Since you haven't gotten a response shown here, I have comcast cable and a Daewoo. I am having the same issue and confirmed that all locks are turned off through the digital cable. If you didn't set the parental code, try defaults such as 2211 (which worked on my tv to turn off the parental control) and 3308.

SETTING V-CHIP This TV is fitted with a V-CHIP controller which provides you with channel viewing access controls and restrictions. This function is to prevent your children from watching violence or sexual scenes that you may choose to exclude. Press the MENU button and press the SET + or – button to select the V-CHIP SET option, then press the ENTER button. Enter your password (4 digits) using the Direct channel selection buttons (0-9). In the event of entering incorrect password press the RESET button. Then press the ENTER button. Enter the same password for confirmation, then press the ENTER button. Press the SET + or – button to select the V-CHIP option. Press the ENTER button to select the ON. Press the SET + or – button to select the TV RATING or MOVIE RATING option. Press the ENTER button. Press the SET + or – button to select the desired rating for the applicable video or TV channel. Press the ENTER button.
And to change or put in a new password: NOTES: • If you want to change password, follow steps 1 and 2 and select "CHANGE PASSWORD" option then enter your new password. • The V-Chip function is activated only on programs and tapes that have the rating signal. • Once you block a program using the V-Chip function, the blocked program cannot be watched based on the content of the show. When the program starts, the "INPUT PASSWORD" will appear on the screen. When you want to release the V-Chip temporarily, enter the password. If you change the channel or turn off the TV while the V-Chip function was temporarily released, the original setting will be resumed. If you return to the channel you were watching you must re-enter your password to temporarily release your V-Chip function again. • When you watch the TV from the cable box or the VCR with the RF Modulator, then you release the V-Chip temporarily, the V-Chip setting will not be resumed until you turn off the TV. The TV channel is not used in this case. • When changing the channel with the cable box or the VCR, approximately 10 seconds will pass until the program appears.
Press the (function or F) button and the mute button at the same time. This will unlock the screen and allow you to view the channel as desired. • If your TV asks for a 4-digit code or password please enter 3308 or 6688 to unlock the screen or reset any preset rating levels

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).
