From here: http://www.tvblanket.com/how-to-unlock-your-tv-parental-control-password/

RCA TV Parental Reset Code: First select parental control from the menu. You will be asked to enter your password. Press and hold the “volume +” and “channel +” buttons on your television (not the remote) for 8 seconds. You will see a message that the parental controls have been unlocked.


Like the author says. "A note to parents: If you are wondering if your kids have reset the password, it is easy to determine. Whenever a master password is used to reset a TV or DVR the old password is no longer valid. So if your old password still works, you kids have not read this page. However, if your old password does not work you may want to have a chat with your son or daughter!"

So be warned kids don't try this at home if you don't want to suffer the consequences. :)
