Re: parental controls

Violence, sexuality, and all-around bad behavior abound in many Xbox games. That can be fun for adults but scary for children. Here's how to activate built-in parental control features. Turn on the Xbox console without a disc in the disc tray. From the dashboard display, choose Settings > Parental Controls. Select Pass Code and press buttons on the controller in any sequence. Remember what buttons you pressed and the order in which you pressed them. Select Games and choose the maximum rating level you want to allow. Xbox will also allow you to set maximum rating levels for DVD movies.

Parental control is blocking me from downloading content.


HI,

If you did not create a Live account that is not over 18 years old, it is unfortunately impossible to COMPLETELY remove the parental controls on the Xbox, however, it is possible to almost completely turn them off. If you have access to the 'parent' account of the child's account on the Xbox 360 and you have your own Xbox Live Gamertag, you can login using your Windows Live account on Xbox.com and change parental control settings.

If the "Child" account has reached the age of 18, then you need to sign into the "Parent" account and follow these steps to convert the account to an "Adult" account:


  • Go to My Xbox, and open your profile.
  • Select Manage Account.
  • Select Promote Child Account.
  • Follow the required steps.

If the "Child" account is NOT atleast 18 years old then this is how to modify the Parental Control settings (Note: You can NOT completely disable Parental Controls, games that have ratings above the neccesary age can NOT be downloaded on the "Child"account):



  • Sign in using the "Child" account's Live email address and password.
  • Click on the gamertag in the upper right hand corner of the site.
  • Click the Manage Profile button.
  • Under the Gamer Profile heading, choose "Family Settings".
  • It will now ask to sign in as the "Parent" account.
  • After signing in, you can change the Parental Control limitations.
  • When done, click the save button at the bottom of the page.
Thanks.

Original xbox parental controls


You need to have the DVD dongle that plugs into the front of the Xbox in order to play DVD's. If you do have that, any universal remote should work on it, I use a GE AllinOne universal with mine, I think the program code is 000 or 0000.

Or, if its the lock thats getting you down...

Here is the procedure to reset the parental lock code:

  1. From the XBOX dashboard screen, go to settings and then parental control.
  2. When prompted for the password, perform the following sequence using the XBOX controller: X, Y, Left Trigger, X.
  3. Enter in a new password, or disable parental control entirely.
Hope this helps!
