I have a Toshiba SD-K730 DVD Player I am trying to set the Parental Lock limit what type of movies are viewed. Can you help?


Parental control setting

Some discs are specified not suitable for children. Such

discs can be limited not to play back with the unit.

1) Press C or D to select "Parental", then press B

or A until the level you require appears.

Level Off: The parental control setting does not

function.

Level 8: All DVD software can be played back.

Level 1: DVD software for adults cannot be

played back.

Select from the level 1 to level 8. The limitation will

be more severe as the level number is lower.

2) Press C or D to select "Password".

Press Number buttons (0-9) to input a 4-digit

password. Be sure to remember this number!

• If you input a wrong number, press CLEAR.

3) Press ENTER to store the password.

Note: Now the rating is locked and the setting cannot

be changed unless you enter the correct pass

word.

4) Press OPEN/CLOSE to activate Parental control

setting. (See "Temporary disabling of rating level by

DVD disc" on page 36.)

Notes:

• Depending on the discs, the unit cannot limit playback.

• Some discs may not be encoded with specific rating

level information though its disc jacket says "adult." For
those discs, the age restriction will not work.

To change the parental level

1) Press C or D to select "Password".

2) Press Number buttons (0-9) to enter the password

you have stored.

3) Press ENTER.

• The rating is now unlocked.

4) Press C or D to select "Parental", then press B

or A to change the parental level.

5) Press C or D to select "Password", then press

Number buttons (0-9) to enter the password.

Note: You can change the password if you want.

6) Press ENTER.
Now the parental level is changed and locked.

If you forget the password...

1. Press OPEN/CLOSE to open the disc tray.

2. Remove the disc.

3. Press OPEN/CLOSE again to close the disc tray.
"No Disc" appears on the screen.

4. While holding STOP down on the front panel,

press 7 on the remote control. "PASSWORD

CLEAR" appears on the screen.
5. Enter a new password again.

hope this helps

My grandfather cant remember the code for parental controls. it is stuck on pg. can it be reset with out the code


Forgotten the parental control password? there is a way around this. According to the user manual (page 34) for this particular model:

Enter "788444" even if 4 digits "----" appears, then press [ENT]
to clear the current password.
Enter a new password and set the parental lock level again if required.

Note: DVD video discs may or may not respond to the parental lock
settings. Make sure this function works with your DVD video
discs.

You need the original unit's remote to do this. It cannot be done without it.

There is a .pdf of the user manual online.

(It is free to download for personal reference in case you have lost your original copy.)

I hope this helps a tad.

Hi i have forgot my parent password on my home access toshiba laptop so now i cant do anything how do i recover this or put my laptop restore please help


A Windows password reset bootable disk could do all the job for you, it can reset your forgotten or unknown Windows password safely and quickly without login, you can create one with the tool Windows Password Breaker, then use it to reset your password.

Hi -- my toshiba SD3990 model DVD player won't


Your DVD player is fu.k.d up.  These things are made so cheap now a days that it is more trouble to try to fix the thing, than going out and buying a new one.  You can try running a disc head cleaning kit through it first to see if that helps.

Dvd troubles


Same problems with my unit.  But, try this... I think it worked.  First, you can not get to the setup screen for the unit with a DVD in the player.  So, remove the DVD first:  Unplug the unit, wait a few seconds, plug it back in.  Then hit the DVD open button and remove DVD in player. 

 

I think the issue with not reading certain DVDs is a problem with the "parental control" on the unit. Without setting parental control there were a few DVDs I could not play and sometimes (not always) I was asked about parental control before a movie would play.  At the Sony Blue DVD screen, select Setup on the remote control.  Select DVD setup and get to Parental control.  Set a password.  This will then take you to a "rating" screen.  By setting the rating very high (I set mine for #8) any movie should play without needing the password.  With no password set, you can not change the "rating" and hence mine was set at #1 (kids).  It seems to have worked for now anyway.  Good luck.
