How do I set a PIN code for my TV or cancel a PIN code that I forgot?

    You can use these instructions to set a PIN code to use for parental lock settings or a restricted profile for broadcast (cable/antenna) signals and streaming channels. The instructions to cancel or reset a PIN code are different with each feature and depend on the model you have. Check your TV manuals if you need model-specific instructions.

    Note: To check the type of your TV, refer to the article How to check if your BRAVIA TV is a Google TV™, Android TV™, or other TV.

    See the section for your TV model, then check How to set or cancel a PIN code.

    Before you start

    • Make sure your TV has the latest software installed. Downloads are posted on your model support page.
    • If you forgot your Parental lock PIN code, enter the master PIN code for your TV.
    • You can only change your PIN code from your profile if you're not in the Restricted profile mode.
