Help me with my Spongebob Square Pants TV/DVD combo
My daughter put a parental control on the TV so she gave me the password. I went in to delete the control because we were having problems playing certain movies. Now we can not play any movies. I have tried and tried my password over and over again. It asks for four numbers and only lets me type in three numbers. I was told to go into the TV and take out the battery the problem there is where in the world is the battery? I have the TV apart and I dont know what I am doing? Help me please!

ok first go to the DVD setup which should be located near the bottom of the remote is says SETUP. Then it will give you a list of options go to the one with the parental code one. Then you should try and change the password. My tvs old password was 8888 but I am not sure if it is the same on all tv's. If it is right then you should be able to change the password to whatever you want! I hope this helps anyone who sees this response!
I had the same problem.I fixed it by unpluging the tv.Then while holding in the power button I plugged it back in,still holding in the power button for twenty seconds.That fixed it.I read somewhere you could reset a Sony that way so I gave it a try and it worked.I also put a cd cleaning disk in it because it was saying "wrong disk" and that fixed that problem.Good Luck
Problems with V-Chip/Parental Controls
The rating limits don’t work
• For rating limits to take effect, you must lock V-Chip settings to activate them.
I don’t remember my password and I want to unlock the TV
• If you forget your password you can reset it. Enter 5898 as the password and then change it
to a new one.
