    My DVD player has never caused a problem before now. It won't play a rated R DVD. I have never created a password and I tried all the normal numbers. 0000, 1111, 1234, 9999. Even the 5898 suggestion did not work. I can't use the best rated suggestion because I don't have all of those buttons on my remote. The menu button plus volume down didn't work either.

Parental controls

Do the following for unlock the parental control. For this you should need the remote for the DVD payer.
1. Press the set-up button on the remote (set-up display will come on the TV screen )
2. Using Right arrow button or Left arrow button select DVD Setup menu
3. Using Down arrow select Parental control and press Enter button
4. now you can change the parental rating using up down arrows
If it ask for password the read the following carefully and do the same and enjoy your videos.
The Parental Lock allows you to limit the use of your DVD Player to only those DVD discs that do not exceed the rating you specify. When the Parental Control is set, DVD discs that support this feature will play only after the password has been entered. However, typically only discs produced by major entertainment companies support Parental Control. Discs not supporting this feature will be "immune" to Lock-Out. When you attempt to change the Parental Control setting, you are prompted for a password. This of course makes sense, as this option would be useless if your kids could enter the Setup Menu and disable it! If there is no user password set, you'll be prompted to enter a new password. Choose a 4-Digit numeric password and write it down in Case you forget it. Key in the password and press ENTER. After the password is set, press ENTER on the CHILD option. You can choose from 8 levels of Parental Control, corresponding to the standard rating system in the USA. The available levels and their equivalent ratings are listed to the right.

Here is where you can set an additional password to the default factory password. The procedures to change an existing password or enter a new password are the same - you must enter the OLD PASSWORD, then key in your new password twice to confirm. If you are entering a new password, or replacing a password you have forgotten, use the factory default password of 3351 as the OLD PASSWORD. If you are changing a previously entered password, you may enter that value as the old password.

A. Remember to keep in mind that the key to the the factory default password of 3351
B. Once the factory password has been changed, you should keep the password written in a safe location as a reminder if needed

Blu-Ray doesn't play all dialogue. I have Denon receiver set for stereo, but the blu-ray is not playing all the dialogue.

It might be set on parental controls.... So it may be blocking some dialogue.... To change parental controls you just go to settings and some where in there you will find parental settings... there may be a password set to block unauthorized changes.... Ask someone who knows what the password is....

I bought a system from a co-worker who up-graded to a PS3... he had a parental block o it for his children... I wanted to watch a DVD on it and it asked for a pass-word... I called my co-worker but he...

Here it is better give me 5 stars for this one :)

Power off your PlayStation 2, and place a DVD into the disc drive. You can reset and turn off parental controls only through the DVD menu, not within the game menu.
  • Step 2 Start the DVD, and wait for the message informing you that the movie is classified as beyond the "Parental Control Level" and asking if you still want to play the movie. Select "Yes," and click "X."
  • Step 3 Click "Select" on the screen that prompts you to input your password. The screen will change to the "Delete Password" menu.
  • Step 4 Enter 7444 as your password, and then click "X." This is the override password and will result in the deletion of any previous passwords.
  • Step 5 Press "Select" to return to the password entry menu. Choose a four-digit number to enter as your new password. If you're going to disable parental controls for good, enter 0000, as this will be the easiest to remember and enter. Repeat the entry when it asks for confirmation.
  • Step 6 Click "Select" when the move begins to play. Use the directional pad to select "Setup" from the menu that appears. Next choose "Parental Controls." Change the level to "Off," and exit the menu. Your parental controls are now turned off.

    Parental lock on cannot open it

    Actually its, 'select' then '7444', and all that does is reset the password.
    Press the SELECT button and enter the 4-digit number "7444" whenever the Parental Control display asks you for your password. The old password is deleted.
    You will then be prompted to enter a new password, enter whatever number you want, something like 0000, or a number that is easy to remember. If you wish to turn it off, just set it to off and forget about passwords.
    - When you play DVDs which do not have the Parental Control function, playback cannot be limited on this player.
    - If you do not set a password, you cannot change the settings for playback limitation.
    - Depending on the DVD, you may be asked to change the parental control level while playing the disc. In this case, enter your password, the change the level. When you stop playing the DVD, the playback limitation level returns to the original setting.

    After changing DVD settings:
    To save your changes, be sure to eject the DVD before pressing the RESET button or turning off the unit with the MAIN POWER switch. Please note that changes will not be saved if you reset or turn off the console without first ejecting the DVD.

    7) registration complete, dvd will start playing.
    8) once the movie starts, press 'select'.
    9) click the 'stop' icon.
    10) click the 'stop' icon again (the icon must be gray even when you have it highlighted).
    11) navigate to 'custom setup' ('select', setup icon, custom setup icon)
    12) move to parental control option, press right directional button, enter password (0000).
    13) move down to 'level'.
    14) move up to desired level (off is at the top).

    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.
