Try the code "5432". it worked for my friend, who hadnt set a code. if you press select, it will ask you for a code to delete the password. at that place, try "7444".

I guess we all have problems with this type of console. That's why I just content myself with popular room games on the PS2 that my family would enjoy. It's the least I could do with something that doesn't function very well.
