Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
I forgot my password for dvd parental
controls how do I fix it
I had to mess with mine a little bit, but here is what I came up with.
1. Insert a DVD that you know will play without the need for parental control.
2. Play the movie like you were actually going to watch it.
3. Bring the movie to a "full stop" by either hitting O two (2) times or by bringing up the menu with SELECT and hit the stop button on the screen two (2) times. The following is an explanation: There are two versions of stop on the PS2. The first stop is more like pause only the screen will not have a picture. It will allow you to "stop" the movie and the resume when you are ready. The "full stop" that I mentioned means that you hit STOP a second time. If you hit play from here it will restart the movie entirely.
4. With the menu still up, look for the button directly above the PAUSE button that says SETUP and hit it.
5. If you go to the right two (2) times you will find the CUSTOM SETUP button. Hit it.
6. In this menu you will see the PARENTAL CONTROLS. This will light up in blue as long as the movie is in "FULL STOP." You will then move to the right and it will ask for your password.
7. Press SELECT and instead of saying enter password it will say delete password. Above this blue box will be numbers 0-9. Enter 7-4-4-4. The box should say password deleted and ask you to register a new password.
8. At this point you can enter anything you like, but I would advise using 0-0-0-0 that way if it asks again you can just press X four times and be done. However we are going to keep going and turn it off.
9. With a new password registered, move to where it says LEVEL and change this to off.
From this point forward you should be all set. For future reference, you can also go to http://www.us.playstation.com/Support/Manuals and using your SCPH number which will be found on the box or on the bottom of the Playstation itself you can find the manual to your machine and download it as a PDF for future use. I have also checked different manuals for different units for both the standard and slim versions and the code 7-4-4-4 seems to be universal. I realize that these instructions are also kind of lengthy but I wanted to make sure you had a step-by-step guide to fix your problem. I also didn't want you seem like an arrogant **** and just give you the website and tell you to check the manual. I hope this helps solve your problem.

SOURCE: dvd parental controls
With a DVD disc inserted in your PS2, press the Select button to bring up the on-screen Control Panel. Press the X button to select the Setup icon. Use the directional pad to reach the "Custom Setup" menu, and press the X button. Move to "Parental Control" and select with the X button. A window will appear asking you to enter a four-digit password. Enter your choice of password using the number buttons that appear then enter it again for confirmation. You're now able to set the Parental Control level using the "Region" and "Level" options, and change your password

In your console enter to the parental control menu and try to change it, when asking for password then:
1. Click "I forgot" twice.
2. Go to http://wii.marcansoft.com/parental.psp
3. Copy the inquiry code where it says "Confirmation Number:".
4. Select your "Current Date in your timezone:"
5. Push the "Get Reset Code" button and get your master code.
6. Try to change again the parental control and use the code provided, the code should work as I tested it many times.
NOTE1: the code generated in this page work as well for Wii and DSi consoles.
NOTE2: If it doesn't work the first time, try going to http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/ . Change the time/date on your DSI to match that of Tokyo, London, some other location etc and then try again.
