Philips On Digital default parental lock code?

Hi Peeps,

At last we have had the aerial upgrded at home and our old on digital pre-paid STB has kicked into life, however, when we try to store the new channels we get prompted for a Parental Control lock code!!??!


I am 99.5% sure that we never entered out own code, but we seem to have lost the manual and cannot find one online......does anyone know if there is a default code that we can use to either unlock or reset the parental controls?

Getting there slowly I guess :D

Take the card out !!! It's tied to that and not the box. You don't need the card anymore.

Arrrgggghhh! How silly do I feel now :blush:

Cheers Flimber, I will try that when I get home....

If I remember correctly (and I probably don't), the default number is burried in your customer number (or card id number). Try the last 4 digits.

One fully working On Digital box brought back from the graveyard....well a storage cupboard in the back bedroom anyway :D
