Question about Akai CFTD2083 20 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo
Ok ok .... I set the parental code on this tv and used it for several years. The tv was put away and now I want to use it. BUT, Ihave forgotten the code. I've done everything - how do I reset it so that i can watch TV!!
Tips for a great answer:
RCA TVs come with a
child lock capability called V-Chip. It's a parental control system which
allows you to block programs and films by content, age-based ratings and the
ratings which come with the movies. The parental control is a code, sent by the
broadcaster to your television. The V-Chip will not work if the broadcaster doesn't
send the control, or if the parental controls are switched off or unlocked. The
controls are set up in the TV's main menu. The default is off.
the main menu choose "Parental Controls;" it's option six.
the first option, V-Chip TV Rating Limit, and using the arrow keys and the OK
button on the remote, scroll through until the TV-MA rating appears. Press the
right arrow button to move the highlight over to the "Status" field
and toggle to "View." Press the OK button. This will set the
age-based ratings to Mature.
the Parental Controls menu, select the second option, V-Chip Movie Ratings
Limit and change the rating to TV_MA and the "Status" to
the Parental Controls menu select the third option, V-Chip Unrated Program
Block and select item one, which will be "View."
the fourth option, which is "Channel Block." Highlight the Channel
field and using the channel up and down buttons, go through and check they are
all set to 'View." Any set to "Block" will need to be toggled
back to View.
Lock the controls to activate the changes using item six on the "Parental Controls" menu
