XBox ''Console Controls'' not working

The first day of summer vaca we surmized our kid had swiped the password to add time to his xbox. We went to create a new password, but when we click on the ''console controls'' button nothing happens. It's like that function has been disabled entirely.

Could that be, or is it something I am doing wrong. Wondering if there is some stealthy way the kid disabled our ability to change his password now that he knows what it is.

To reset the parental controls for the original xbo Go to "Settings" and highlight the "Parental Control" option. Then, press X, Y, L, X at the passcode screen to reset the parental control setting to the default value.

My Xbox is locked can u help please?


In order to disable the parental lock on your Xbox console you need to follow the instructions on this Xbox support site.

How to reset forgotten pass code for parental controls on Xbox 360


Basically, in order to prevent smart kids from finding a default reset code and disabling the parental controls without their parent's knowing, each Xbox console has an unique reset code that is calculated from the console's serial number.
So if you are unable to remember your secret question to reset the console yourself, you will have to contact the official Xbox support here:

https://support.xbox.com/contact-us

When you are talking with a support agent, you need to confirm, that you are an adult, and then give them the console serial number.
They will then walk you through the process of unlocking your console.

How do I reset my Microsoft password


I'm not an XBox user but my sons are and I think we're helped them out with this a couple of times. If I remember correctly, we went to the XBox website (using a computer, not the XBox) and reset it there. If we did not have the password to log into the account, we clicked "Forgot Password" and a reset email was sent. We used that email to set a new password and then the boys went and used that new password on the XBox without any trouble. Again, it has been a while, so some of the details might be slightly off but the general concept - go to the website and reset there - I'm fairly sure about. I think it's also possible to do it over the phone with Microsoft support if you have time to wait on hold for a while.

My son put on a password to lock his 360 an forgot the password, how do i clear it or unlock the kids xbox, please help me!


I dont wont to say this but you might have to erase the settings on it

to erase the settings

  1. If there is a disc in the console, remove it.
  2. Turn off the console.
  3. Turn on the console by using your controller. To do this, press and hold the controller's Xbox Guide button until your console turns on.

    Note If multiple controllers are connected to your console, make sure that you use the player one controller. You can recognize the player one controller because the upper-left quadrant of the Guide button is lit up on that controller.

  4. While the console is starting, press and hold the Y button and pull the right trigger at the same time. Continue holding the buttons when you see the Xbox 360 logo.

    The console will restart and you will see the Xbox 360 logo again.

    The console's display settings are now reset to the defaults.

Password on famliy setting for xbox live preowed console


From the XBox website:


Managing Xbox LIVE Activity
Xbox LIVE Controls come into play only when you take Xbox 360 online, and they're linked to a child's profile and gamertag. When an Xbox LIVE account is created, the service asks for the member’s age to determine whether to apply Family Settings to that account.
Parents are also required to create or use an existing Windows Live ID. The Windows Live ID is associated with the child’s Xbox LIVE account and protects the settings from being changed later by the child. To change a child’s settings, first select the child’s account name and connect to Xbox LIVE. Once signed in, enter your Windows Live ID password to unlock the settings.
To see these controls, go to My Xbox, open System Settings, then selectFamily Settings, Xbox LIVE Controls.
