Question I was prompted to enter a security code when trying to change the settings for Parental Control. What should I do? Answer The security code refers to the code that you set during the configuration wizard or when setting up Anti-Theft. Once a valid security code is entered, changes to the Parental Control settings are accepted.   When Parental Control is in use, you have to enter the security code always when trying to access any settings. When Parental Control is disabled, the security code will not be prompted for other settings except for Anti-Theft.
