How to Lock or password your Television


Want to lock/password your TV? Below is how to do it.

Passwording your TV could help solve many problems in the home ranging from theft and misuse and most importantly, parental control (owing to the rapid growth of immoral/adult programs on most channels). You can do this Based on the content rating of a television show, (TV-G or TV-MA as explained in the later part of this article). Locking your television set can be done in just a few seconds following the steps outlined below:
  • Press the "Menu" button on your television's remote control to enter the "Settings" menu.
  • Use the arrow buttons on the remote control to navigate to the option that reads "Parental Controls." Note that this may have its own category on certain models of television sets, or it may be found under the "Settings" menu. Also, it may be referred to by your menu as "V-Chip" if your TV has an officially licensed V-Chip inside of it.
  • Enter a multi-digit pass code. This is designed to prevent just anyone from being able to alter or turn off parental controls. The default pass code on most television sets is "0000" without quotation marks. Write down your pass code so you don't forget it.
  • Specify which programming you'd like to "Lock Out" off your television based on its TV rating. The TV rating describes exactly what type of content is being displayed. For example, "TV-G" is similar to a G-rated movie in that it has been deemed appropriate for all ages. "TV-MA," on the other hand, often features adult content and is not suitable for younger viewers.You can also specify entire channels to be "locked out" of your television. These channels will simply be skipped over when flipping through the stations.
  • Press the "Menu" button on your remote control to save your changes and that's it, you have successfully locked your television.
