Removing parental control code

We just purchased this DVD player used and it has a parental control code. How do we remove it? We did not get an owner's manual. Also, do you have owner's manuals to download?

Zenith DVD player DVB412 is requiring an entry for a Parental Control Limit on a brand new Across the Universe DVD. I've tried 0000, 3308 to reset the code, the reset button. It looks like others had...

Hello Hummer,

Please follow the instuctions below to reset the password and switch off the parental control on the Zenith DBV412.

1. Switch on the TV and DVD player
2. Switch the TV to the input for the DVD player
3. Remove any disc from the player
4. Press the SETUP key on the Zenith remote to open the on-screen menu
5. Press 2 1 0 4 9 9 using the numerical keys on the Zenith remote.
6. Press SETUP again to close the menu

This will clear any password that has been set. Now you need to switch off the parental control:

8. Press the SETUP key to open the on-screen menu again
9. Use the down arrow to highlight the PADLOCK for the parental control settings
10. Press the RIGHT arrow once to enter the parental control menu
11. Highlight RATING and press the RIGHT arrow once.

You will be asked to set a password. Enter something simple and easy to remember, e.g. 0000 then press ENTER. You will need to confirm the password by entering the same number again, then press enter again.

12. Use the UP/DOWN arrows to highlight UNLOCK then press ENTER
13. Press SETUP again to close the menu

You should now be able to insert your Across the Universe disc and play it. If you are still unable to watch the disc or you are unable to switch off the parental control feature, please let me know.

lots of electrical items will use a default security code of 0000 or 1234.
if there is nothing in the manual and these codes do not work, then your best option would be to return it to the store for them to find the codes or refund/refpace the item

My Memorex 2040 dvd player gives "error parental" when I try to play a dvd. Any idea what this is or how to fix?

The Parental controls for your DVD player has been turned on. The default setting for most Parental Control setup is G rating meaning that anything above a G rating will not play unless the override code is entered. I was unable to locate a copy of your manual, but if you look in your copy for a heading called Parental Controls, it should explain to you what has to be done to either change the rating or remove the control altogether. Unless you have small children that may use your player you can probably remove the controls altogether. Normally you would have to go into your Setup menu, and then look for Parental Controls in that menu. Unless someone setup a code, you should be able to go in and just turn it off. If there has been a code applied and you are unable to find out what it is you will have to contact Memorex support to find out how to remove it. To ensure that it doesn't get turned back on you might want to hide your remote, as you need to use it to turn the feature on and off.

Thank you for the opportunity to assist you in resolving your issue. Should you need further information or assistance please do not hesitate to let us know.

I tried putting a new DVD into my player ( Kenwood DVF-3080) It's asking me for Parental Control Limit code. I've never set parental controls due to the fact that I have no children. Other DVD's play...

If all the other DVD s you have work fine it could be misreading the DVD try fully RESETTING the power to the DVD Player by removing the power plug from the Wall, if the problem is still there and all the other DVD s you have work just fine then the problem is with that one DVD you have let me know if you need any more help.

My DVD player is locked, the display shows a red key.

Hi, This sounds like a parental lock issue. Try going into the set up menu and press the down key choosing custom by pressing enter (this is in the user manual page 20 - 22) then go down and select parental. If you know your parental control password code then enter it, if not the reset code is 4737 you will then need to create a new 4 digit code,There are 9 levels to choose from 1 - 8 and all, all being the selection that removes the parental lock. Hope this helps. James

Parental control code that i didnt set

The factory preset override code for the parental lock is 3308. This code, however, will NOT remove the parental lock code in place. This is just a code to get around the lock. I'm not sure how to dissable to code someone else entered...still trying to figure that out!
