Parental Lock Menu

The Parental Lock menu gives you control over three different types of parental controls. You must use a pass code to open this menu to enable/disable the lock options. The three parental controls available are:

• Ratings (U.S. Ratings/Other Ratings)

V-Chip technology lets you restrict access to programming based on program-rating signals sent by the broadcaster. For U.S. ratings, you can also set the time of day for these restrictions to be in effect.

• Lock by Time

Lets you restrict TV use by time of day.

• Front Panel Lock

Lets you disable the controls on the front of the TV.

Use this option if there are small children near the TV who may be tempted to press the buttons.

Rating Menus

The rating menus allow you to:

• Turn rating restrictions on or off

• Change the permitted rating level

• Set the time of day to enforce rating restrictions (U.S. ratings only)

The TV comes from the factory with pre-set U.S. V-Chip ratings and with the rating locks turned off. The pre-set ratings are TV rating TV-PG and movie rating PG. If you turn on V-Chip blocking, these presets allow only programs rated TV-PG/PG or lower until you change the rating level.

After changing the channel or device, there may be a delay of up to five seconds before the rating restrictions take effect.

Other Ratings Menu

This TV can recognize new rating systems that may come into effect in the future. The Other Ratings menu allows you to block digital programming based on such alternate rating systems. The alternate rating systems will apply to digital programming only.

Note: The Other Ratings button remains inaccessible until the TV receives signals for an alternate rating system.

The first time you tune to a channel broadcasting an alternate rating system, the TV defaults to the most restrictive setting. Use this menu to change the allowed rating if you are unable to watch a program broadcast with an alternate system.

Lock menu (figure 10) and press ENTER to open the U.S.

Ratings menu (figure 11).

4. Press to select the TV rating level you want to allow.

5. Press to move to the TV content categories. This section allows you to specify content blocking in addition to that blocked by the TV rating. See the section on V-Chip ratings for an explanation of TV content categories.

• Press to move the highlight among the categories.

• Press ENTER to add a check mark to each TV content category you want to block.

6. Press to move to the Programs Not Rated box.

Press ENTER to add or remove a check mark to allow or block programs that are not rated.

Note: Use care when choosing to block unrated programming. News programs and emergency bulletins carry the “None” or “NR” (Not Rated) V-Chip signal, and they are blocked with this option active.

7. Press to move to the Movie Rating box. Press

to select the movie rating level you want to allow.

Detailed information on rating guidelines follows this discussion of the Parental Lock menu.

Figure 12. The Other Ratings menu is available only if the

TV receives broadcast signals carrying an alternate rating system.

IMPORTANT

New rating systems recognizable by the TV may be new U.S.-based systems not included in the original V-Chip rating system. The use of “Canadian” in the sample screen is just one possibility.
