Re: unknown pin number

To do this, you can either install a custom firmware or try to upgrade it with a higher version original firmware. I think after the installation the parental control pass word will be reset.

Hello, i know nothing about this system, however about three months ago my daughter had the system in some kind of menu, i pressed some buttons and the screen turned black, well she has had numbers p

Try doing a hard reset. A lot of electrical devices have a small reset button you will need to press this button using a toothpick or pin, and hold it in for 10-30 seconds. If you do not have this option, try removing the battery for 10 seconds and then putting them back in. If this does not help you will either have to contact Sony support to see if it is under warranty for repairs, or contact someone local to you that can fix gaming systems. Just do a Google search to find local gaming repairmen. Let me know if you have any questions.

PSP won't turn on

You can try a hard reset. Do this hold the power switch in the upward position for over 10 seconds. This will cause the machine to reboot. Leave it alone for a few minutes then try switching it back on. You may have to flick the switch on twice to start her up again. If it still has a hard time try changing the battery for the one in your sons machine. MAKE SURE that all apps etc are closed on the PSP first and do the hard reset BEFORE you remove the battery on BOTH machines. Ensure PSP is OFF before removing battery. It is possible the battery has been overcharged or just given up. If the console operates with the other battery you know you need get a fresh one. Consider getting a high power one for extended life. Let us know how you get on. May have more info for you.

Forgotten pin number and question need to get new parental control number.

Ok, when you go to enter the pin number, click "I Forgot" twice. After that, you'll see some random numbers. Write it down or something. Remember that number. Then, go to this website: Enter the number in the Confirmation Number box. Then, enter the date in the second box. Click Get Reset Code. Remember that number. Then, when you go to enter the pin number, enter the number the website gave you. The rest is self-explanatory.

Cant remember pin number and am locked out

Turn on you PSP and go to the System Settings menu then scroll down to "Restore Default Settings". Press the X button (other PSP are O button) to restore the default setting. The password should then be 0000 or 9999.

Bought a black DSI at a yard sale and how can you change pin #!!

The other solution is to go over to and from here, you can provide the confirmation number on your DSi, and get your reset code. Unlike the 1-800-255-3700 solution, this one is available 24/7.

Despite it saying Wii Parental control reset tool, it also applies to DSi as well.

Cant get games to play on my sons psp

This may be a number of problems. The disc might be scratched or damaged. Or there could be dust on the leans.

You say it's a second hand PSP? In that case, you may need to repare it. I'm not quite sure where to go to get repares. Sorry.

Sony psp

The first check the version you are running on psp, >> Go to the PSP Menu and move across to the "Settings Menu". Scroll down, select to "System Settings" >> "System Information" and you should see version of your PSP. If the UMD has a high version than ur console, u need to update ur psp.

see at my blog for psp update guides.
