How to Reset the V-Chip on an Emerson TV

According to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), all television sets larger than 13 inches must be equipped with a piece of technology called a V-Chip. This chip allows a user to block or grant access to programming based on the FCC's rating system. For example, if you have children under the age of 14, you can use the V-Chip to block all programs rated TV-14 or higher. Emerson calls this technology "Child Lock," and it can be reset as long as you know your child lock password.
