It's the TV-from-a-yard-sale story. There's no remote or instruction manual. Channels are blocked. How can I remove parental controls to unblock channels? I don't know the 4-digit code. Do I have to buy the manual from Sony? Argh. Thank you.

SisteRita,

Welcome to the TechLore Community. Don't you hate it when people don't disable passwords before they sell their used equipment. It's like selling your old car without giving the new owners the ignition key. Thankfully, TechLore's got the answer.

First, let's get that parental lock disabled. In the password screen, type in the code 4357, which is the master code to the Sony KV-27FS13. After you use the master password, you will need to enter a new password. Pick one you can remember. After that is done, enter the TV's setup menu and adjust the parental controls using your new password, or disable it entirely.

Second, you do not need to buy a replacement manual from Sony. A .pdf version of the manual for your TV can be downloaded from Sony's e-support site. Click here to download your manual.

Please don't forget to tell 10 of your dearest friends about TechLore. You wouldn't want to keep this site a secret... would you???

SisteRita, just out of curiosity, how much did you pay for it?

Tie Guy -- $50, with a load of furniture for considerably more. Previous owner moving overseas.
