Parental Control Lock

I bought a refurbished Vizio plasma TV. The problem is that the parental control was locked and I do not have the password to unlocked it. I wonder if anybody knows the procedure to reset the parental control password. Thank you in advance.

    TV froze up last night when trying to access Netflix. Had to cut power. Say a post that recommended doing a factory reset (clear memory) but I am unable to enter the parental control number.

I'm really guessing here - -but while you're in the parental controls screen I believe you can use 0-0-0-0 as a backdoor key. It's different for every manufacturer, Philips uses 0-7-1-1 example. But the users's manual for that TV says that the "default" is 0-0-0-0.. Don't really understand their use of that terminology so it's merely a guess... But here's something I am really sure of;;; The owner's manual can be downloaded for free at the Vizio web site: and their support line is: 1-888-849-4623 or you can email tech support at: [email protected] Hope this helps. Good Luck Bill

    Most of the stations are blocked!

    Welcome to the wonderful world of the vchip. Making better babysitters through tecnology. From what I understand the control if placed in a ram and cannot be reset without the password. I would call RCA and talk with a tech there might be a generic unlock code like on the old playstations. You may have to prove you are the rightful owner and over the age of 18.
