I Am Seeing The Words Excessive Rating On My Screen.

Last Update Date : Jun 22. 2018

If you see the words "Excessive Rating" on your screen, it means that the program currently being broadcast on the channel you are tuned to is blocked by the V-Chip settings of your TV. If your want to watch the program, you must either reset the V-Chip settings through the TV's on screen menu or temporarily disable the V-Chip.

To temporarily disable the V-Chip on many Samsung TVs, follow these steps:

  1. Press the V.chip button on your remote control.
  2. Enter your V-Chip PIN number.
  3. Press the VOL+ button on your remote.

For instructions on resetting the V-Chip on your TV through the on-screen menu, see your user's manual. Look for a section titled Using the V-Chip.

  2. Press the Power button on your remote control. This turns the TV off.
  3. Press the Mute button on your remote control.
  4. Press the numbers 8 - 2 - 4 on your remote in succession.
