How to reset password on playstation 2

Hi Jessica

There are two methods to reset the Parental Control on a PlayStation 2, the Quick Method and the Easy Method.
The Quick Method to Reset Parental Control

  • Power on the PS2
  • Press the Reset button
  • Inset an R-rated and wait until the board comes up telling you that Parental Control is on
  • Hit the Select button
  • At the enter password prompt, hit the Select button
  • At the Delete password prompt, enter in your password
  • Hit the X button

If you do not know the Parental Control password on your Ps2, try the known defaults of 1111 and 7444.
The Easy Method to Reset Parental Control

  • Unplug the PS2
  • Wait approximately 72 hours
Hope this helps :)

I bought a used ps2 and it had a parental control code so i can;t watch movies at all

7444 is the password reset for PS2 parental control. Enter that and you should be prompted for a new password.

Parental lock on cannot open it

Actually its, 'select' then '7444', and all that does is reset the password.
Press the SELECT button and enter the 4-digit number "7444" whenever the Parental Control display asks you for your password. The old password is deleted.
You will then be prompted to enter a new password, enter whatever number you want, something like 0000, or a number that is easy to remember. If you wish to turn it off, just set it to off and forget about passwords.
- When you play DVDs which do not have the Parental Control function, playback cannot be limited on this player.
- If you do not set a password, you cannot change the settings for playback limitation.
- Depending on the DVD, you may be asked to change the parental control level while playing the disc. In this case, enter your password, the change the level. When you stop playing the DVD, the playback limitation level returns to the original setting.

After changing DVD settings:
To save your changes, be sure to eject the DVD before pressing the RESET button or turning off the unit with the MAIN POWER switch. Please note that changes will not be saved if you reset or turn off the console without first ejecting the DVD.

Forgot passcode for parental settings.

Put the DVD in the PS2 and when the prompt for the password appears, press SELECT to bring up the delete password screen and enter the code 7444. Then register a new password.

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. ;)

Parental levels

Put in a DVD, and press select button to go to PS2 DVD menu.  highlight setup menu. Press X.  go to settings I think, and paretal control is there.  Use password 7444.   Usually everyone sets the password to 0000.  Then when you go into the parental settings, turn the level value to OFF
