How to Remove a V Chip Block on an Olevia HDTV

Save

The V-Chip was developed as a way to prevent children from viewing inappropriate materials on televisions without the need for direct parental supervision. But finding out that you can't watch some of your favorite shows on your Olevia HDTV because they have been blocked can be frustrating, especially when you don't know the password to change the settings. The chip can be accidentally engaged. Or if you bought a secondhand TV, the previous owner may have used it to filter programs. An easy-to-remember reset code can help quickly resolve the problem.

  • Turn on your Olevia HDTV and press the "Menu" button.

  • Use the arrow keys on your remote control to navigate to the "Parental" header, then press the "Enter" button.

  • Enter "9999" at the password prompt. That will lift the password lock. Switch "Block TV Rating" and "Block MPAA Rating" to "None." Then change "Block MPAA Unrated" and "Block TV Rating None" to "No." This will remove all V-Chip content blocking.
