Resetting iTunes administrator password

How do I reset the Parental Controls password on iTunes? I have a classic iPod. I set a parental controls password for iTunes downloads when I first installed the program and have forgotten it. To unlock the controls, it prompts me for an administrator username and password. It defaults to a user name that is my first name - but I'm not sure if that's what I set it up as (I assume so) and have tried every password I can think of. Thanks for your help.

    I didn't realize the iTunes admin password was the same as the OS profile password. I recommend starting the answer with the obvious - whcih is this case was what did the trick; i.e. "try your user profile password. If that doesn't work..." and list the steps you gave me.



    The above process gave me the clue to try the user profile name and password (which I hadn't forgotten but is changed frequently), and it worked like a champ. Thank you very much - great job.

Which Operating system is it ?
If you have forgotten the admin pwd then you can try the following :

You need to bootup into single user mode (command+S at startup). It will take you to a command prompt. From the prompt you can do:

passwd user

Where user is the shortname for the admin account (you can lookup the shortname from the System Preferences->Accounts pane before you boot into single user mode). You type in the new password twice .. then type:

reboot

voila.

OR you can try...

At command prompt:
1.type: mount -uw /
2. press enter
3. type: /usr/libexec/register_mach_bootstrap_servers /etc/mach_init.d
4. press enter
5. type: netinfod -s local
6. press enter
7. type: SystemStarter
8. press enter
9. type: passwd root
10. press enter
11.type: reboot
12. press enter

Dont forget to rate this!

Resetting parental controls


there seems that only 4 digits are the max but I could be mistaken, as far as reseting the password there is nothing listed on the Vizio website in the manuals ect for reseting the parental controls, probably due to security for the owner.

But there is a solution
if you call 877 MY V I Z I O
with you model number of your unit and make them aware of the parental lock issue there might be a way for them to explain the resting everything back to factory settings.
