All televisions manufactured after 2000 and 13 inches or larger are required by the Federal Communications Commission to include a V-chip. Parents set a secret code to lock certain channels or programs in an effort to control what their children see on TV. To unlock a channel or turn off the V-chip, you need to know the secret code. If you have forgotten the secret code or purchased a used Panasonic television with the code set, you need to reset your Panasonic TV back to its factory default settings.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Press and hold the "Action" and the "Power" buttons on the television at the same time.

  2. 2

    Hold both buttons until the unit turns off.

  3. 3

    Release both buttons and turn the television back on.
