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.

It says your gamer profile does not have the correct permissions to acces xbox live functionaly


Parental controls might have been switched on. You should try going to system then family settings then console control then access to xbox live. You'll probably see from there if any parental controls or passwords have been set up. If it isn't that it could be your membership expired and you need to pay for a new one.
Hope it Helps, -Joe

Parental control is blocking me from downloading content.


HI,

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.
Thanks.

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.
