Screen says invalid format and i cannot get the menu up to factory reset it.


Check with the manufacturer to see if there is a reset button on the set itself. Not uncommon.
Did you also try unplugging set for a while and also holding down the power button to drain as much as possible out of the circuits?

Hello
Your TV is locked I thinks. Do the following and see whether it help you.

Most RCA and GE TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset is different depending on the model. Try each number until you find the one that works for you.

  1. Hold down the MENU button on the remote and VOLUME DOWN button on the TV it's self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  2. Hold down the 0 (zero) button on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN button on the TV itself at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  3. Hold down the MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. 4- Hold down GO BACK button on the remote and MENU button on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
  4. Hold down EJECT button on the front of the TV set and the MENU button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. Depending on the model, one of the methods should unlock the V-chip. Now, if desired, you can change the settings on the V-chip by going to the MENU and going to PARENTAL CONTROLS, or on some sets, going to MENU and then going to TV SETUP, then to V-CHIP SET.
OK.

There is a lock in the corner off the screen., how can i get it away. I dont have a manuel.


Hello
I think your TV has been locked, and you have forgotten the four digit V_Chip code you have entered earlier. If so there is a method to refresh the V-Chip code. The orginal code for the V-Chip, when the TV exits the factroy is set "0000".
You can set to this code by the following method.

Press the remote control keys in the following sequence, which reset the pin to "0000".

POWER OFF==> MUTE==> 8==> 2==> 4==> POWER ON.

TV will come with a fresh V-Chip code "0000", which you have to readjust to block any channels if you wants. Ok.

Need to reset v chip on ge tv 19gt243


Reset the password to '0000' by holding the VolumeDown and ChannelUp buttons on the TV (not remote) for about 5 seconds. Do this while viewing blocked content- you'll see the screen blink when it gets reset. Then go into the menu and disable/change the v-chip settings as desired using password '0000'. Hope this helps- -sv-

Toshiba Child lock


You might want to try the same solution for the V-Chip (this might be the same thing as the child lock, it is worth a try) protection to see if this will help:

Changing V-Chip Settings for MV13L3, TV/VCR Combo 2001.

-Unplug your tv for 1 minute.
-Plug your tv in and turn it on.
-hold the volume down button on the tv at the same time you hold the "0" button down on the remote. This will bring up the "Set V-Chip" blue screen.
-Enter "0000" for the password and hit enter. Enter "0000" to confirm the password and hit enter.
-This will bring up the V-Chip set page. From this page you can: Turn Off the V-Chip, Change the Limits for viewing, etc.
-If you turn off the V-Chip setting, you will not have to deal with this problem again.

V-chip code forgotten


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.

V chip reset


I found this on the net. It worked for our television.

  • Search for a channel that the Password screen does not appear.
  • Hold the Vol. button on your TV itself until it reachs 0.
  • At the same time, while holding the Vol. (0), press the button "0" on your Remote for more than 2 second.
  • Go to menu, select V-Chip set and enter a new Password.
  • After you enter a new passport, you can enter again to V-chip and set it ON or Off.
