Tips for a great answer:
Selecting this option lets you lock (disable) or unlock (enable) the TV's front
panel buttons. The remote still tunes to any channel so remember to remove
access to any remote that can operate the television.
1. Choose Parental Control from the Main Menue and press the OK button.
2. Enter your passworcd.
3. Press the down arrow to highlight Front Panel.
4. Press the right or left arrow button to choose unlock (_) or lock (_).
I don't remember my password and I want to unlock the TV
If you forget your password, you must reset it. Make sure the TV is of. Press VOL- (down) on the TV's front panel and then
CLEAR on the remote for approxhnately 5 seconds. The TV turns on. Enter a new password next time you access
the PARENATAL CONTROL menu or the TIME_menu.
