Parental Controls and V-Chip
The choices in the US V-Chip and Canada V-Chip menus involve software inside your
TV/DVD referred to as V-Chip, which allows you to block TV programs and movies. TV
programs can be blocked by age-based ratings, such as TV-MA, which is explained on page
34. If available, TV programs can also be blocked by content, such as adult language (L). This
is explained on page 35. Movies can only be blocked by age-based ratings. This is explained
on page 35. Once you block programs, you can unblock programs by entering a password.
By default, the software inside your TV/DVD is turned off or unlocked. For instructions to lock
V-Chip, see page 34.
How V-Chip Works for USA and Canada
V-Chip reads the program’s age-based rating (TV-MA, TV-14, etc.) and content themes [(Violence
(V), Adult Language (L), etc.)]. If you have blocked the rating and/or content themes that the
program contains, you will receive the message This channel is blocked. Change channel or
press OK to enter your password and temporarily deactivate the parental controls.
Broadcasters are not required to provide content themes, so programs received with no con-
tent themes will only be blocked if you block their age-based rating. You can also block out
programs that have been given an Exempt rating, and programs that are considered unrated.
