How to activate and deactivate child lock on PANASONIC TX-55GX555

Child blocking and protection, or parental control, is very useful to prevent your children from watching certain programs or accessing certain applications.

Parental control is an optional feature that is often available on high-end devices such as your PANASONIC TX-55GX555.

However, it may be difficult to activate or deactivate this mode on your PANASONIC TX-55GX555. We will see here some methods that allow to set these parameters in less than 10 seconds.

If you know the lock code

If you have never set the child lock on your PANASONIC TX-55GX555 before, the lock code is probably the factory default.

It’s likely to be “0000” or “9443”.

If you have already set the child lock, then you will have to enter the code set before.

To lock and unlock the child mode, go to the “Menu” of your PANASONIC TX-55GX555.

You can access this through the same button on the remote control, or by pressing the Menu button once, located on the bottom or side of your TV.

Once there, go to the sub-menu “Broadcast” or “Configuration” of your PANASONIC TX-55GX555, by pressing the Plus and minus keys of your remote control or of your PANASONIC TX-55GX555.

You will be able to set various parameters such as:

  • The viewing time per session
  • The maximum viewing time per day
  • Unauthorized viewing hours
  • The type of programs allowed, such as cartoons: content filtering
  • Allowed applications
  • Monitoring children’s activity on your PANASONIC TX-55GX555

Choose questions instead of a PIN number

To change the child mode later, you can choose to use questions instead of a PIN code.

However, be careful not to ask too difficult questions, as you will have to remember them.
