I have a sony playstation 2 i do not know the parental password and i cannot watch movies my daughter bought becuz it will ask for parental control to be set to level 8 and u can only say yes or it will...

try passwords 1111 and 7444. these are known sony default passwords. if that doesn't help, unplug it and leave it like that for 72 hours. that should drain the charge enough so it "forgets" the password.

How to reset the parental control code - I forgot the code and want to reset with a new one

This is what I found in the instruction manual on this and I posted it here for you. Try using 3355 for the code and everything else listed here. If that doesn't work, try the very last tip which tells you how to do a factory reset and repeat the first step using the 3355 as the code.

Here's the instructions from manual:

Parental Control
Parental Control allows you to block certain channels or programs so children cannot view
programs that are not age appropriate.
To enter the Parental Control menu, you need an
access code. The first time you enter, use access
code 3355. See "Setting an Access Code" on
page 33 for information on creating a new access
You can set the following options to block
• Channel Lock — Blocks selected channels
• Movie Rating — Blocks movies based on their rating (G, PG, PG-13, R, NC-17, and X)
• TV Ratings — Blocks TV shows based on their rating
• Block Options — Turns on or off all your parental control settings
NOTE: You can use Clear All to unblock the channels and programs that you have set.
NOTE: If the Block Control in the Parental Control menu is enabled, all the sub screens in POP (POP1,
POP3 and POP12) mode will be blank

Setting an Access Code m
After you enter the Parental Control menu for the first time, you can set your own four-digit access
code. If for any reason you lose or forget your access code, you can use the default code.
1 In the Parental Control menu, select Change Code.
2 Using the number pad on the remote control, enter a new access code.
3 Select Exit.

Reset the original factory defaults. Press Menu on the remote
control, select Setup, and then select Factory Reset

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.

    Trutech TV parental control

    naughty naughty, we have been caught before!

    Ask your parents to give you the password. Passwords are there to stop inquisitive kids from watching unsavoury things.

    If you are an adult then use the Payable request to prove you are of age and not a child trying to subvert Mum and Dads password.

    now go to your room and think about your punishment when your parents find out about this
