-Could you explain your situation a little more?

What have you tried to unlock the code?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
The smart lock child proof is enabled and all the tv ratings are locked so therefore I cannot view any channels. I don't have the code so all I have done is punch numbers in and try to guess it. It is a 4 digit code. I was trying to find out if there was a master reset so I can disable the smart lock code because I have no idea what it is. So is there any other way to get around the smart lock code.
Expert:  Edward replied 5 years ago.

Thanks for your reply. When prompted to enter the code enter 0711. This will allow the TV to be operated.

Reply to Edward's Post: I entered the code 0711 and it did not work. The TV said incorrect code and continued to be lock. It is a 20" Magnavox and the model number is XXXXX

The screen is black with channel #   blocked by smartlock channel blocking     access code
Expert:  Edward replied 5 years ago.

Page 20 of the owners manual has the needed information. The manual can be viewed or downloaded by clicking here. If entering the 0-7-1-1 did not let you have access there are likely other problems with the TV other than the access codes being blocked.
