    Heya,
    Have you tried going back into the settings and turning family off? I have had it happen to me before, do you need to know how to do it? If worse comes to worse you can do a hard restart but you will loose alot of info

Erase/set new pass:
With a new pass you can edit settings i'm pretty sure, stopping the locks on your games?

  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.
Please check google!

It is MUCH easier to find an answer.
Maybe your parents DIDNT put in your age, but above will erase your password.

Playstation froze; will not play PS3 games or PS1 games


Hi this is a huge problem with ps3 it can be one of two problems the first is the expensive one this is over heating if the ps3 has been used on carpet or placed on top of something like dvd player or video or cable or sky box this causes the ps3 to overheat and the damage is usually to expensive to repiar the other problem alot of people are having is with the fan blowing dust onto the laser lense and this causes the ps3 two stop laying certain games if your warrant has run out you could remove the case and clean the lense but dont use any kind of liquid only use dry cloth but a soft one do it gently.
I dont avise doing this if your ps2 still has warranty left as this fault is covered by warranty and they will replace your ps3.
Im going out for couple of hours now so if you need further assistance let me know ok

The family settings for my XBox turned on on their own. i do not know the password because I've never used the family settings.I can't play Halo or watch the majority of movies available on...


First I would try a few simple passwords such as 1234, 1111, 0123, things like that. If you are unable to figure out the password then you should be able to return the system back to its default settings.

To do this just go to your dashboard, then go to the system tab. There should be an option to restore all settings, this should remove the family settings.

Also you can try to log into the account that has power over the family settings and change them that way.

hopefully this helped

Forgot password to unlock family settings on xbox 360?


I've managed to come across this from someone who called microsoft with the same problem (it seems quite common)
Go into settings Console settings Then device settings (The one with the blue screen)
Then go:
left trigger, right trigger, x, y, left bumper, right bumper,
left with left stick, up with left stick, right with left stick, x

If you have trouble use the pad instead of stick, but I could only get the stick to work..

I hope that helps

Mike

I would like to limit what my son can play on using his Xbox 360. I have a lot of 15 and 18 games, as I am a real 40 year old gamer, and he plays on them (so I think) when he shouldn't! I kept them hidden,...


Hello! Good to see the old generation of gamers, breeding a young :)

The 360 has some rather neat parental controls. It's called family settings. Here is the details of it, how to set it, etc.

Good luck!

And remember, you were a kid too once.

I have just returned from holiday and my xbox has gone onto family settings and it is saying i am too young to play Fifa


This fifa problem has come up alot......

  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.
Do that to make a new password or unlock family settings and change them.

If you cannot edit your settings with that new password, ask your parents for their email/password for the XBOX LIVE PARENTAL account.

From there you should allow all types of games, (no age blocks)

Good luck!
