Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

1 Answer

DVD will not let me select language

I just bought a new DVD. I have been watching my dvds on my sons playstation 2 for the last 5 years. But this dvd has a parental control, which let me set a password. But then the film starts right away without a chance to set the language. It will only play in Italian. The Playstation system configuration is set to English.

Thanks for your help.

the code is usually a parental code to stop kids viewing potentially adult content. Could you not contact the person the unit was purchased from and ask them for the code?

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. ;)

I can't watch dvds

Put in the DVD, allow it to load up. Press the Select button on the controller. This will pop up a small menu. Highlight "Setup" and press the X button. This will take you to the area for parental lockout. When you get the Enter passowrd scren going, Enter '7444', it will then prompt you to enter another password. normally people use '0000' Now you can scroll down the movie rating list and select "OFF" so you dont have this problem anymore.
