How to activate and deactivate child lock on THOMSON 55UE6400
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 THOMSON 55UE6400.
However, it may be difficult to activate or deactivate this mode on your THOMSON 55UE6400. 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 THOMSON 55UE6400 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 THOMSON 55UE6400.

Once there, go to the sub-menu “Broadcast” or “Configuration” of your THOMSON 55UE6400, by pressing the Plus and minus keys of your remote control or of your THOMSON 55UE6400.
<The child lock sub-menu will be available.
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 THOMSON 55UE6400
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.
