Original xbox parental controls

When we use the controller to access settings there is no parental control feature. We just got this xbox from a friend and there is no remote with it. Do we need the remote in order to find the parental settings?

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!

    On a side note...if the Xbox is "modded" and there is another dashboard on it besides the original Micro$oft dash, then there are really no parental settings to change, you just select "Yes" when it asks you if you want to play the dvd. Its a pain, but thats just how they are programmed.

Roku com support-how do I change the Parental Control setting for my ROKU 3050X?


Setting parental controls is simple:
  • On your computer, go to Account (it's linked from the upper right of each Redbox Instant by Verizon web page) and choose the Manage Parental Controls tab.
  • On the Roku, parental controls also are available directly under Account.
  • On the Xbox, parental controls are controlled through the console and not the Redbox Instant by Verizon app. You can, however, use our app to see what your parental controls are set to. Just go to Account and choose Preferences.
    • For more information about how to restrict movies and TV shows using your Xbox 360, see Xbox 360 console parental controls.
    • If you're using an Xbox One, more information can be found here.
  • On any other supported device, choose Account within the Redbox Instant by Verizon app, and then select Preferences.
From there, choose the option that's right for you and your family: The Young Children option, for example, will allow any content appropriate for children up to age 6 to be streamed without a password. Other settings are available, including one that will not allow streaming purchases without a password. The parental controls password is the same as your Redbox Instant by Verizon account password.

Please keep in mind that parental control settings are specific to the device on which they are set: If you enable parental controls on an iPad, for example, and want all your other devices to control access to Redbox Instant by Verizon in the same way, you'll have to enable the same settings on all of the other devices. This gives you the flexibility to control what can be watched and purchased on a device-by-device basis.

How do i turn off parental settings, or even better change my account to an adult one on xbox 360?


Hello,

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.
(Information taken from following site)

Hope it helped.

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.
