There is a little insider trick to disable it:
Go to Settings, Highlight Parental Control, When the screen pops up that says Enter Pass Code press: X, Y, Left Trigger, X. You'll be taken to the parental controls screen where you can disable the passcode previously entered.

I hope this helps :)

Kind Regards,

Yes you should still be able to use them with an old Xbox 360. Not much is different other than color and shape a little bit.

Can't turn on my controller without turning on the 360.


unfortunately this wont be possible.
The thing is both your computer and the xbox360 are on the exact same frequency, meaning that if both devices are in radius they will both go on.

If the xbox360 is nearby then I would recommend to unplug the power cable while you are using the controller for the PC.

This is only a workaround but I hope it helped.

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


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 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.

Hope it helped.

you need to go to the dashboard and then move the slide all the way to the right thats the system slide when your in the system slide go to the bottom of the list and click initial setup which will make you re-do your profile. you may also notice there is a parent control slide if you know the email address and password used when you set up the console in initial setup go to that and put in the information then you can change what games he can play and all of that.
