How to Reset the Password on an LG TV

An LG television set that comes with a “password lock” option allows you to block certain programs based upon the ratings of shows and movies. Such an option is convenient if younger children often use the TV. Resetting the password from time to time ensures that the children or other individuals do not learn the password and change the settings on the TV. You can reset the password on the TV even if you have forgotten the current password.

Step

Turn the LG TV on.

Step

Press “Menu” on the LG TV remote. A window appears on the TV screen. Use the arrows on the remote to highlight the “Lock” option, then press the right arrow button on the remote.

Step

Enter the current password or the code “7777” if you don't know the current password.

Step

Highlight the “Set Password” option in the window on the TV screen and press the right arrow key.

Step

Type in a new four-digit password and repeat it in the “Confirm” window. The password is reset.
