Just leave it blank to not have a password setup.

Merry Christmas!

I bought a system from a co-worker who up-graded to a PS3... he had a parental block o it for his children... I wanted to watch a DVD on it and it asked for a pass-word... I called my co-worker but he...

Here it is better give me 5 stars for this one :)

Power off your PlayStation 2, and place a DVD into the disc drive. You can reset and turn off parental controls only through the DVD menu, not within the game menu.
  • Step 2 Start the DVD, and wait for the message informing you that the movie is classified as beyond the "Parental Control Level" and asking if you still want to play the movie. Select "Yes," and click "X."
  • Step 3 Click "Select" on the screen that prompts you to input your password. The screen will change to the "Delete Password" menu.
  • Step 4 Enter 7444 as your password, and then click "X." This is the override password and will result in the deletion of any previous passwords.
  • Step 5 Press "Select" to return to the password entry menu. Choose a four-digit number to enter as your new password. If you're going to disable parental controls for good, enter 0000, as this will be the easiest to remember and enter. Repeat the entry when it asks for confirmation.
  • Step 6 Click "Select" when the move begins to play. Use the directional pad to select "Setup" from the menu that appears. Next choose "Parental Controls." Change the level to "Off," and exit the menu. Your parental controls are now turned off.

    I apparently put on a parental lock, don't know the code and want to be able to watch dvds. Is there a universal override code?

    When you get to the password input screen, press the select button. The text should change from Enter Password to Delete Password. Then enter the code 7-4-4-4 . From there you can set a new level and password for yourself.

    My nephew put a code for movies, he forgot the code

    Here is the procedure to reset the parental lock code:
    1. Bring up a screen where the unit asks you to enter in the parental code. You can either insert a restricted disc, or enter the DVD setup menu and go to "parental control" under GA_googleFillSlot("TL-IMU-Article"); custom setup.
    2. When the screen asks for the code, press the SELECT button, then enter in the code "7444".
    3. The level adjustment under Parental Control dictates the strictness of the player. The lower the value, the more strict it will be. Either increase the value to lower the restriction, or disable the lock entirely by setting it to "off".
    4. Once you have made your adjustments, be sure that the DVD tray is empty, and press the RESET button on the front of the Playstation 2. It is imperative the tray is clear of any DVD or game for the unit to save your settings.
    A note for parents: If you're wondering what is stopping your child from using the above procedure to circumvent your rules, you can verify that they haven't reset the parental control very easily. Since the above procedure eliminates the old password entirely, all you need to do is see if your original password still works. If it does, they did not use the above procedure to break the rules. If it doesn't, they might be trying to pull the wool over your eyes.

    This is the only way to turn "off" parental control lock on the custom setup screen.

    1) turn off ps2 with no dvd in drive.
    2) turn on ps2 and insert dvd in drive.
    3) when it asks about parental password, choose 'yes'.
    4) when prompted for password, press 'select'.
    5) the prompt will change and say 'delete password'. enter '7444'.
    6) enter a new password (0000 works).
    7) registration complete, dvd will start playing.
    8) once the movie starts, press 'select'.
    9) click the 'stop' icon.
    10) click the 'stop' icon again (the icon must be gray even when you have it highlighted).
    11) navigate to 'custom setup' ('select', setup icon, custom setup icon)
    12) move to parental control option, press right directional button, enter password (0000).
    13) move down to 'level'.
    14) move up to desired level (off is at the top).
    15) click 'x'.
    16) go back to 'select' menu options, and press 'play'.
    17) while movie is playing, eject disk and remove dvd.
    18) turn ps2 off using switch on the back, keep off for five seconds.
    19) turn on ps2, put dvd back in.
    20) happy dance. ;)

    Try using the code 7-4-4-4. It should clear whatever they put in and then you can put your own in.

    Parental codes

    Put a DVD into the PS2 and let it try to load. When the screen says chenge to level four select yes. When the entry window pops up,press the select button on the controller. It should say reset password or something like that. Put in 7444. Then when you rename the password put in 0000. You will have to do it again 0000.
    Once the movie starts, not the menu screen, but the movie actually playing, Press Select button again. The PS2 DVD menu should appear. Cursor over to the toolbox or Setup, and press X. Cursor over to the third icon, and press X. Arrow down to PArental and press X. Change the Parental lockout to OFF.

    I am not completely sure about the procedure here but the numbers are correct.
