Hi,

So the password can be reset with a button combination made on your controller, but that sequence can only be given by the people at Microsoft Technical Support. Write down the serial number of the Xbox (find that on a sticker on the back of the machine), and call 1-800-4MYXBOX.

They will likely ask you several questions about who plays it, gamertags, billing address, and so on, but they will then walk you through how to reset the password.

Good luck!

SOURCE: reset family setting password

Here's what you need to do:

Turn on your xbox, go to System Settings. From there go to Console Settings. A window should appear that asks you for your password. If you don't know your password, then make up something. It will tell you your password is incorrect, click Reset Password".

You'll need to type in: YrYa


If this fails, then you need to follow these steps to reset your factory settings.

Turn off your xbox. Take your hard drive out (the bulge on the side of your 360. It says HDD on it.) by pressing the gray button, and sliding the piece out. Turn on your xbox, go to System Settings - Console Settings - System Info.

Press these buttons IN ORDER:

LT RT X Y LB RB Y (using the left joystick) go right ONCE A

After all of this is completed, a window should appear asking you if you would like to reset your system settings, press yes!

After all of this is completed, you'll need to turn your xbox off, put the hard drive back in, and turn it back on.

I JUST had this problem, and this is what tech told me to do... and it worked.
Good luck! Down with passwords!

SOURCE: I want to Reset my family settings

From what i have gathered the only way to reset the master reset code is to contact microsoft and they can do it for you

The only codes I know are

Clear All Installed Game Updates and Console Cache
1. Go to the "system" blade
2. Select "memory"
3. Press Y on the HD symbol
4. Press X,X, Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X,X
5. A message will appear saying: "Do you want to perform maintenance on your Xbox 360 storage
devices?"
6. Select Yes
Clear Any Failed system updates that cause the console to error.
1. With the console off, press and hold the sync up button (the small white one)
2. While holding the sync button press the power button to turn on the console
3. Continue to hold the sync button until the Console has booted up completely.

If none of the above suggestions work, contact MS customer support get get a support ticket started. If your
console is still under warranty DO NOT attempt to open it and fix it yourself. MS will fix it promptly and for free
and if you open it you loose the free support.
Check the documentation that came with your Xbox 360 for contact information.
In the US Customer Support can be reached at 1-800-4-MY-XBOX (1-800-469-9269)

Some how I have set up a family network on my computers and have no idea what the password is, how do I figure this out?


Are you speaking about the password of the router or the password of the wireless network ?
If you don't know the password of the router , then you will need to reset the router and use the default password of the router.
Once you reset the router, you will need to reconfigure it.
If you are looking for the wireless password, you can find it on the set up page of the router.
You will need to open the set up page of the router.

Dont know password


if that is a password for the xbox live passcode, the passcode being asked everytime you sign in, the password is the password itself when you try to recover your gamertag

if that is a passcode for watching videos, or something.

that is a family settings passcode, the only way to override that is to call tech support, give the console serial number of your xbox of course, the serial number has a unique reset code attached to it..
tech support will give you some things to press on sytem info page of the dashboard to reset the family settings
