Need a master key to reset parental control on dsi


Go to parental controls in system settings.
When it asks 'Change Parental Controls settings?' tap yes.
When it brings up a numeric keypad, tap the center button, "I Forgot".
Next, tap "I Forgot" again. Now you will be shown a screen with a number at the bottom (the 'inquiry number').
Go to: http://wii.marcansoft.com/parental.psp
Enter the 'inquiry number' number in the field marked confirmation number. Set the current date in your timezone and click get reset code. And Voila! Your DSi is now parental control free!

I forgot my pin number and master key please help


In the System Settings Menu, go to the 3rd page, then select "PARENTAL CONTROLS."

  • Select "YES," to change the parental controls.
  • You will be prompted for your 4-digit PIN.

    If you know the PIN, select the empty text box and enter the PIN using the on-screen keyboard, then select "OK" to continue.

    If you don't know the PIN, select "I forgot," then select the empty text box for the answer to the secret question and enter it using the on-screen keyboard. Select "OK" to continue.



    If you don't know either the PIN or the secret question, the Parental Controls will need to be reset.


    An Enquiry Number will be displayed. Ring the number given in the Nintendo DSi Operations Manual and provide the Enquiry Number. You will then be issued with a Master Key. Tap "OK" and enter the Master Key. Tap "OK".

  • Select "PIN" to change the PIN or "CHANGE SETTINGS" to update the setting you wish to change. Once the changes are made, select "DONE" to confirm any changes.
"If you don't know either the PIN or the secret question, the Parental Controls will need to be reset. Please call 1-800-255-3700 for assistance."

Parental controls are lock


If you have Parental Controls turned on, but cannot remember your PIN, you will be prompted to select and answer a secret question that will allow you to change your PIN in the "Game Settings and PIN" menu

If you no longer remember your PIN, nor the answer to your secret question, then you will need to contact Nintendo Consumer Service for assistance.  To acces and change the parental control settings you SHOULD:
  1. Access the Wii System Settings
  2. Click on the blue arrow to reach the Wii System Settings 2 menu options.
  3. Choose "Parental Controls" and select "Yes."
  4. Enter the 4-digit PIN and select OK. If you have forgotten the PIN, select " I forgot" to answer the secret question. (Answers to the secret question are case sensitive.) You will now be in the Parental Controls menu, and can change the following items:

I dont know my dsi parent control


If you don't know your parental control code, then you need a little work around to disable it. Go to the system settings and find the parental controls option. Try to change the settings, and when it asks you for the PIN, hit the "I Forgot" button. On the next screen, say "I Forgot" again.

There will be a number at the bottom of the next screen. This is a confirmation number. Take that number, and enter it into this website: http://wii.marcansoft.com/parental.wsgi . It's a handy utility will take your confirmation number and the day's date and give you back the reset code. You should be able to change or disable the controls after entering the code. Good luck!

Forgot the parental code how to resest the wii system


Here is what nintendo says about your problem:
If you have Parental Controls turned on, but cannot remember your PIN, you will be prompted to select and answer a secret question that will allow you to change your PIN in the "Game Settings and PIN" menu. If you forget your PIN and the answer to your secret question, please call Nintendo Consumer Service at 1-800-255-3700.
Before you call!
In order to assist you, we will need your Wii Parental Controls Confirmation Number. To get this number:
  1. On the first screen of the Parental Controls where you enter your PIN, select "I forgot."
  2. When prompted to answer your secret question, select "I forgot."
  3. The following screen will appear. Please write down your Confirmation Number and have it handy when you speak to a representative.
So as you can see you don't have to reset the whole system.Anyway if you really want to reset the wii system try this out:

1.Go to system options
2.Press format wii system memory

That should reset the whole system.

Master key code


Go to http://wii.marcansoft.com/parental.psp and enter your 8 digit confirmation number there. When you do so, make sure that whatever today's date is, your Wii is set to that date. (And select Today's date from one of the 3 possible choices.)

(To get the confirmation number, go into Parental control settings, click I forgot on enter pin screen, and Click I forgot on answer secret question screen. This is where you come to where you enter the master password, and the confirmation number you need, to get this master password.)
