Go to http://wii.marcansoft.com/parental.psp and enter your 8 digit confirmation number there. When you do so, make sure that whatever today's date is, your Wii is set to that date. (And select Today's date from one of the 3 possible choices.)

This also happened to me! Go to parental controls on the wii setting. When it asks for your pin press I forgot and then it will ask you you question also press I forgot. Then a screen will come up telling you your confirmation number. Now call Nintendo customer service and they will give you the Master key. Type the master key pin into the mast key box that will appear after the confirmation key notice will appear. Please let me know if you need any more help.

SOURCE: i cant unlock parental control we forgot 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.

SOURCE: forgot password for dvd parental

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.

I forgot my pin number and master key please help


In the System Settings Menu, go to the 3rd page, then select "PARENTAL CONTROLS."

  • Select "YES," to change the parental controls.
  • You will be prompted for your 4-digit PIN.

    If you know the PIN, select the empty text box and enter the PIN using the on-screen keyboard, then select "OK" to continue.

    If you don't know the PIN, select "I forgot," then select the empty text box for the answer to the secret question and enter it using the on-screen keyboard. Select "OK" to continue.



    If you don't know either the PIN or the secret question, the Parental Controls will need to be reset.


    An Enquiry Number will be displayed. Ring the number given in the Nintendo DSi Operations Manual and provide the Enquiry Number. You will then be issued with a Master Key. Tap "OK" and enter the Master Key. Tap "OK".

  • Select "PIN" to change the PIN or "CHANGE SETTINGS" to update the setting you wish to change. Once the changes are made, select "DONE" to confirm any changes.

If you don't know either the PIN or the secret question, the Parental Controls will need to be reset. To do that, you'll need to call Nintendo (1-800-255-3700).
Or just use this: http://wii.marcansoft.com/parental.wsgi :)

My son forgot his dsi password. What do we do next?


Hi.

Go into system settings and navigate to parental controls, tap on yes to change parental controls. Where the DSI asks for the password tap on "I forgot", it should then take you to the secret question page. Enter the secret question and you should be able to reset the password. If your son has forgotten his secret question again tap on "i forgot". It will then give you an 8 digit code. Leave it on that screen for the time being. Don't tap OK.
Post that code here and I should be able to provide you with a 5 digit code so you can reset the password and clear the parental settings.



Regards.
