Sooner or later you'll get to a point when not having a remote will get to be too annoying, so better get one now and take care of this problem. Also Emerson advice users not to use universals. Theres a way that might help you reset the system, i'm not sure it will reset the V-chip as well, but no harm trying. unplug the unit from the power line, and wait a good while before plugging it back. this resets some settings for sure, but it might be that the V-chip stores its settings differently. Then also check to see if there's any batteries supplying a small current for other settings memory, scour the face of the unit for a battery compartment and if you find one remove it for a while. Otherwise, you could try removing the V-chip. But i won't advice you to do that, opening tv's is kind of dangerous, and go find it in there... lol anyway, if you do manage to cancel it you wont be able to turn it back on, so unless you're content to keep the set in your bedroom locked, or let your kids have some fun, i suggest you go through the trouble of getting the remote. Maybe tell your kids that if they find the remote you'll go easy on them, let them watch some porn once in a while, you probably wont have to wait more then an hour before its in your hand, and find your lost golf clubs on the way... ;] good luck!

This solution is provided by one of our experts premtech


Child Lock

Combos
--Should have original remote. Press and hold the power button for 6 to 10 seconds


Combo Model T25208, V-Chip Forgotten Password
If you forget your password, simultaneously press VOLUME down on the TV/VCR front panel and the 0 number button on the remote for a few seconds. This resets the password and you can enter a new one.

Combo Model 13TVR62, V-Chip Forgotten Password
If you forget your password, press STOP/EJECT on the TV/VCR front panel and MENU on the remote simultaneously. This resets the password, but not the limits you’ve set.
Televisions with Parental Lock Feature


If you forgot your password for this feature, press the following buttons on the remote, one at a time. (Note: You must be in the password entry screen) Press, Mute, Display,Clear and Reset, this unlocks parental controls and you can now re-enter a new password.
OR TRY THIS..
Press and hold Menu on the TV AND volume down on the remote for 3 seconds. Nothing will appear on the screen, and the Parental Controls will unlock, and you can re-enter a new password with the LOCK PARENTAL CONTROLS

CTC169AU
Channels that have been locked can be viewed only when the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to OFF. This can only be done with the remote control-it can not be changed with the buttons on the front of the TV.

Therefore, after you turn on PARENTAL CTRL, you simply hide the remote control so that your children can not watch the locked channels. The locked-out channels will remain unviewable even if the TV is unplugged or the channels are autoprogrammed again. The only way to view locked channels is to use the supplied remote control to set the PARENTAL CTRL function to OFF.

The PARENTAL CTRL and the CHAN CTRL functions work hand-in-hand. The instructions below will first tell you how to turn parental control on or off with the PARENTAL CTRL function and then how to lock desired channels with the CHAN CTRL function.
1. Repeatedly press MENU to select SETUP MENU, and then press + or - to display setup functions. Repeatedly press MENU to select the PARENTAL CTRL function. . When this function is set to ON, PARENTAL CTRL is activated and any channels you locked with the CHAN CTRL function will not be viewable. . When this function is set to OFF, PARENTAL CTRL is deactivated and all channels are viewable.

2. To lock channels, press the MENU button to select the CHAN CTRL function. Select a channel you want to lock by pressing CHANNEL up or down. Then press +. The CHAN CTRL setting will change from NORMAL to LOCKED when that channel is locked. To return the channel to NORMAL, press the - button. Repeat step 2 for each channel you want to lock. If the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to ON while you are locking out channels, each channel will go blank as you lock it. When the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to ON and a channel which has been locked out is tuned, the TV will display the words PARENTAL CONTROL to let your kids know you have locked it.

CTC185's
If the front panel function buttons don't work, (menu, ch up/dn etc.) but the functions work normal with the remote, enter the "Channel" menu with the remote and turn "Parental Control" off.

CTC203's
In the event you have forgotten your password, perform the following procedure:
Press and hold for 3 seconds the TV button on the remote while pressing the menu button on the TV.
This procedure will turn off the parental lock and erase the previous password .

Another Possibility To Try For Various Models: If TV's in the Parental mode and askes for a password that's forgotten, Press menu on the TV, select Parental Lock #4 on menu, then with the remote press Mute, Display, Clear, and Reset buttons in sequence.

TX808 Chassis
If Parental Controls have been set and you don't know the password, do this:
Press and hold the volume down and the channel up buttons at the same time for 5 seconds.
Now you can reset the password to 0000, and using that password you can now access the V-Chip menus.

TV's (Made by Daewoo or possibly Apex, ie. GE model 24GP653)
The factory default pass code of 6688 is also the override code, in case the owner forgets their pass code. If that doesn't work, another place in the owners manual says to push Function and Mute on the remote at the same time. Function is the top right button.

I have a philips flat tv Model # 42pf9630a/37, lost the remote and I can't program a remote to access the menu. The Closed caption is on and the screen format is not right.


I just checked and your specific remote is available on eBay for between $15 and $35. Just search the model number.

If you don't like eBay then consider a Logitech Harmony remote. They are easy to program and they will have all the functionality of your original remote including menu functions. I have two Logitech Harmony One remotes and there isn't a single thing I can't do that the stock remotes can do better. They are sold at Amazon, Tigerdirect, Walmart, Bestbuy, and just about any other electronics store.

How to get unit to play without remote


You can probably use the front panel buttons (STOP PLAY OPEN/CLOSE etc) manually, the only thing you cannot do without the remote is access certain DVD menus, including subtitles/language/special features etc. You can always obtain and use a universal remote for basic menu functions later on if necessary.

To play a DVD movie without the remote, simply load your preferred disc, wait for the player to finish reading its contents, then to skip copyright warnings and/or the 'play movie' menu screen, press STOP, then PLAY, or simply press PLAY button where 'play movie' (or whatever function) is highlighted in the menu. These buttons should be on the front of the main unit. Doing this should encourage the player to detect the appropriate title (the movie) and play it (basic playback operation may not be possible with some DVD releases due to the numerous interactive menus and title pages, such as film trailers).

If basic manual operation is not completely possible with some DVD titles, consider a universal remote for your player if you have either lost your original, or the player was purchased/received without one. Such remotes are relatively inexpensive to purchase, and are available just about everywhere.

Parental lock code has been lost how can i unlock and reset code


Without a model number I'll have to list several solutions.

Push Vol Down and Chan Up on the set at the same time, Then go to password screen and enter 0000.

Reduce Vol to minimum and hold Vol Down on set and Vol Down on remote.

Hold Vol Down on TV while pushing "TV" button on remote for 3 seconds.

With TV OFF, press and hold Vol Down on TV and "Clear" on remote for five (5) seconds.

Press "Menu" button on TV and "TV" button on remote for 3 seconds.
Some models use the Vol Down button on remote instead of "TV" button on remote.

Go to parental Menu and press Mute, Display, Clear, Reset in sequence on the Remote.

Press "Menu" button on the set and Vol Down on Remote for 3 to 5 seconds.

With remote go to parental screen and press Chan Up and Vol Up on the front of set for 3 to 5 seconds.

Fpa lock on how do i get this offf


hello Lock/Unlock Parental Controls
Selecting this option lets you lock and unlock parental controls settings
using a password.
If you do not lock parental controls, none of the settings for V-Chip,
Channel Block, or Front Panel Block will take effect.
If you forget your password, press the MENU button, then select Parental
Control
(the password entry screen appears). Simultaneously press and
hold CH+ and VOL+ on the front panel for 8 seconds. Parental Controls
unlock and the Parental Control menu appears. You can enter a new
password by locking the Parental Controls again.
Front Panel Block
Selecting this option lets you block (disable) or unblock (enable) the TV’s
front panel. The remote still tunes to any channel. When using this as a
Parental Control method, remove access to any remote that is capable of
operating the television while you have the front panel blocked.
Don’t forget to lock parental controls after you change the status. If you
don’t, the front panel block will not take effect .if this don't work get back to me i've got manual good luck
