  • Power on the PS2
  • Press the Reset button
  • Inset an R-rated DVD and wait until the board comes up telling you that Parental Control is on
  • Hit the Select button
  • At the enter password prompt, hit the Select button
  • At the Delete password prompt, enter in your password
  • Hit the X button


  • You can try 1111 or 7444 those are known default codes or leave the playstation unplugged for at least 72 hours and that should clear the password.

    0000 is factory set code. Try that. Otherwise ask the person who gave it to you.
    But if you are left with no other option...

    Here is the procedure to reset the parental lock code:

    1. Bring up a screen where the unit asks you to enter in the parental code. You can either insert a restricted disc, or enter the DVD setup menu and go to "parental control" under GA_googleFillSlot("TL-IMU-Article"); custom setup.
      GA_googleCreateDomIframe('google_ads_div_TL-IMU-Article' ,'TL-IMU-Article');
    2. When the screen asks for the code, press the SELECT button, then enter in the code "7444".
    3. The level adjustment under Parental Control dictates the strictness of the player. The lower the value, the more strict it will be. Either increase the value to lower the restriction, or disable the lock entirely by setting it to "off".
    4. Once you have made your adjustments, be sure that the DVD tray is empty, and press the RESET button on the front of the Playstation 2. It is imperative the tray is clear of any DVD or game for the unit to save your settings.

    Need to reset code


    Found this on another site, from personal experience but its very well written so here you go.

    The Playstation 2 is not only a video game system, but also a DVD player as well. In many families, the Playstation 2 serves as the "kids" DVD player, which means that many parents choose to take advantage of the parental lock feature to limit what kinds of movies the Playstation 2 will play back.
    There could be instances where you entered in a parental code months ago, and now can't remember it. Or, you may have purchased a used Playstation 2, and you never knew the code to begin with. If you or the prior owner set a parental lock code, the Playstation 2 won't play back many movies without entering the code first. You could try to hunt down the original owners, or start inputting every code possible starting with 0000, but it's easier to reset the password and disable parental lock using a secret code.
    Here is the procedure to reset the parental lock code:
    1. Bring up a screen where the unit asks you to enter in the parental code. You can either insert a restricted disc, or enter the DVD setup menu and go to "parental control" under custom setup.
    2. When the screen asks for the code, press the SELECT button, then enter in the code "7444".
    3. The level adjustment under Parental Control dictates the strictness of the player. The lower the value, the more strict it will be. Either increase the value to lower the restriction, or disable the lock entirely by setting it to "off".
    4. Once you have made your adjustments, be sure that the DVD tray is empty, and press the RESET button on the front of the Playstation 2. It is imperative the tray is clear of any DVD or game for the unit to save your settings.
    A note for parents: If you're wondering what is stopping your child from using the above procedure to circumvent your rules, you can verify that they haven't reset the parental control very easily. Since the above procedure eliminates the old password entirely, all you need to do is see if your original password still works. If it does, they did not use the above procedure to break the rules. If it doesn't, they might be trying to pull the wool over your eyes.

    If this does not work, the other code is usually 0000. However if they change the default password, then it will be hard to find out.

    Getting past parental password


    I think it is 7448. If you go to www.Playstation.com and go into PS2 area and Click support, you will find a link to a Manual, which tells exactly how to get past the Parental code. I think the code is 7448 though.

    Parental codes


    Put a DVD into the PS2 and let it try to load. When the screen says chenge to level four select yes. When the entry window pops up,press the select button on the controller. It should say reset password or something like that. Put in 7444. Then when you rename the password put in 0000. You will have to do it again 0000.
    Once the movie starts, not the menu screen, but the movie actually playing, Press Select button again. The PS2 DVD menu should appear. Cursor over to the toolbox or Setup, and press X. Cursor over to the third icon, and press X. Arrow down to PArental and press X. Change the Parental lockout to OFF.

    I am not completely sure about the procedure here but the numbers are correct.
