This is the only way to turn "off" parental control lock on the custom setup screen.

1) turn off ps2 with no dvd in drive.
2) turn on ps2 and insert dvd in drive.
3) when it asks about parental password, choose 'yes'.
4) when prompted for password, press 'select'.
5) the prompt will change and say 'delete password'. enter '7444'.
6) enter a new password (0000 works).
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).
15) click 'x'.
16) go back to 'select' menu options, and press 'play'.
17) while movie is playing, eject disk and remove dvd.
18) turn ps2 off using switch on the back, keep off for five seconds.
19) turn on ps2, put dvd back in.
20) happy dance. ;)

A universal reset password, 7444, can be entered via the DVD on-screen menu, under SETUP and then under CUSTOM SETUP (an icon shaped like a keyhole/padlock.
You can choose an option to delete and reset the existing password, but remember to use the SELECT button, not the X button.
To delete the current Parental Control Password and enter a new code use the following:
1) Turn on / restart the PlayStation and run a DVD.
2) You may now be asked if you want to temporarily change the parental lock to level 7. Keep selecting yes until it asks you to enter the parental password.
3) When asked for the parental lock password, push the SELECT button on your controller.
4) At this point it you will be asked if you wish to delete the password. Select Yes
5) You will now be asked to enter a 4-digit code. Enter 7444.
6) Now change your password e.g.1111
7) Please confirm your password by typing it again.
8) Within custom set up, select parental lock.
9) You will be asked to enter your new Password.
10) Select Parental Lock Level
11) Change the lock level to "off"
12) Open the disk tray and re-set the console to change the settings.
13) Run DVD.

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.

There was a parental lock code on our ps2 when we got it, is there a override code I can use to unlock it? I bought it at a yard sale last summer and they never mentioned that they put a lock on the DVD......


Try these directions, they *should* work.

1. Insert a DVD Movie into the PlayStation®2.
2. You should receive a message informing you that the Parental Level has been set, and asking if you?"d like to allow the disc to play. Highlight "Yes" and then press the X button.
3. A new window will appear asking you to temporarily change the Parental Control to a different level. Again, highlight "Yes", and then press the X button.
4. Another window will appear asking you to enter your Password. Above that window are numbers (0-9).
5. Do not enter your password, but instead, press the select button on your Controller. This will change the text in the window from "Enter Password" to "Delete Password".
6. Using the numbers above the window, input 7444. If successful, you will receive a message stating "Deletion Complete".
7. Press Select. You will now be asked to register a new password. Please select a four-digit code of your choosing.
8. You will be asked to confirm your password selection by inputting the same code once again. If successful, you will receive a message stating "Registration Confirmed".
9. Now you need to turn off the password altogether. The movie should of started playing by now. Press select and chose Setup. Go to the parental control "tab" and set the level to "off".
10. Now you should be able to watch any movie

Cant figure out the code to watch movies can you help?


Greetings,

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.

If I helped, please give me a rating. Thanks for using FixYa! =)

Can not unlock console to watch movies on it


Haha no, you don't need parental controls! It's been a while since I got into my playstation 2 but as I recall there is an area when you turn it on where you can access set ups. I think if there is a parental control code on the machine, you may have to call sony to find out what to do as that info was with the parents who set it up. I'm not sure off hand if there is a universal reset code; try the website as well and forums there for the info. I think that's the best advice I can give.

Oh, did you contact the people you bought it from? Perhaps they can find out for you and save you some time?
