    Model AV-27230

    Stuck on channel 2, lock icon displays. How are the channels unlocked ?

    (not my set, owner messing around with universal remote control and
    inadvertantly locked the channel selection feature).

  2. Not sure if it applies to this set, but look in the Channel Summary
    menu. The default password is '0000' (set in the V-Chip menu).

    : Not sure if it applies to this set, but look in the Channel Summary

    Another caveat: The owner of the set has lost the remote control.
    I tried using a Radio Shack universal remote but can't get it to work
    even though it mentions JVC's code. Only input device is now the front
    panel of the TV. Is there any "master reset" that is accessible
    either via buttons on front or something inside? I need to disable the V-Chip
    function and put it back to its default state.

    thanks,

  4. No idea. I just own a similar set (based on model number) and looked in
    the manual. Is there no menu button on the front of the set?

    There is a menu button on the front of the set but one cannot select
    a "sideways" menu selection (as far as I can tell" from the buttons on
    the front of the set.

  6. Did you try all the buttons on the front.
    kip
     
  7. Try using Menu as down and the channel button as left and right.

    It is much easier with the remote.
