Zenith DVD player DVB412 is requiring an entry for a Parental Control Limit on a brand new Across the Universe DVD. I've tried 0000, 3308 to reset the code, the reset button. It looks like others had...

Hello Hummer,

5. Press 2 1 0 4 9 9 using the numerical keys on the Zenith remote.
6. Press SETUP again to close the menu

This will clear any password that has been set. Now you need to switch off the parental control:

9. Use the down arrow to highlight the PADLOCK for the parental control settings
10. Press the RIGHT arrow once to enter the parental control menu
11. Highlight RATING and press the RIGHT arrow once.

I have a Toshiba SD-K730 DVD Player I am trying to set the Parental Lock limit what type of movies are viewed. Can you help?

Parental control setting

Some discs are specified not suitable for children. Such

discs can be limited not to play back with the unit.

1) Press C or D to select "Parental", then press B

or A until the level you require appears.

Level Off: The parental control setting does not


Level 8: All DVD software can be played back.

Level 1: DVD software for adults cannot be

played back.

Select from the level 1 to level 8. The limitation will

be more severe as the level number is lower.

2) Press C or D to select "Password".

Press Number buttons (0-9) to input a 4-digit

password. Be sure to remember this number!

• If you input a wrong number, press CLEAR.

3) Press ENTER to store the password.

Note: Now the rating is locked and the setting cannot

be changed unless you enter the correct pass


4) Press OPEN/CLOSE to activate Parental control

setting. (See "Temporary disabling of rating level by

DVD disc" on page 36.)


• Depending on the discs, the unit cannot limit playback.

• Some discs may not be encoded with specific rating

level information though its disc jacket says "adult." For
those discs, the age restriction will not work.

To change the parental level

1) Press C or D to select "Password".

2) Press Number buttons (0-9) to enter the password

you have stored.

3) Press ENTER.

• The rating is now unlocked.

4) Press C or D to select "Parental", then press B

or A to change the parental level.

5) Press C or D to select "Password", then press

Number buttons (0-9) to enter the password.

Note: You can change the password if you want.

6) Press ENTER.
Now the parental level is changed and locked.

If you forget the password...

1. Press OPEN/CLOSE to open the disc tray.

2. Remove the disc.

3. Press OPEN/CLOSE again to close the disc tray.
"No Disc" appears on the screen.

4. While holding STOP down on the front panel,

press 7 on the remote control. "PASSWORD

CLEAR" appears on the screen.
5. Enter a new password again.

hope this helps

My DVD player is locked, the display shows a red key.

Hi, This sounds like a parental lock issue. Try going into the set up menu and press the down key choosing custom by pressing enter (this is in the user manual page 20 - 22) then go down and select parental. If you know your parental control password code then enter it, if not the reset code is 4737 you will then need to create a new 4 digit code,There are 9 levels to choose from 1 - 8 and all, all being the selection that removes the parental lock. Hope this helps. James

I am trying to play a dvd and it is asking me for a code or password, I never set one I have played the dvd player before, so this is a puzzle.

There are a few different "default" codes that you can try.

0000 or 1111 or 1234 or 9876 etc.

Here is something that i just came across, I do not know if it will work but it maybe worth a try:

1. Turn the DVD player on with No Disc in.
2. Press MENU on the remote (Ignore the 'NO' symbol that appears)
3. With the remote, press 1, then press 9 (Ignore the 'NO' symbol that appears)
4. A menu should appear.
5. Use the Down Arrow to highlight the PARENTAL CC then press ENTER. Now type the Parental Control setting you want with the remote (8 is the highest setting, press 8 on the remote for a fully unlocked player). Then press ENTER on the remote after entering your new setting.
6. Use the Down Arrow to highlight the PARENTAL PW. If you wnat to change this, press ENTER. You can enter any 4-digit code here. Press ENTER on the remote after you enter the 4-digit code.
7. To exit the menu and save your settings and push OPEN/CLOSE with the remote.

The parental lock comes on on certain dvd movies.(JVC xv-n322s)

Well Girls and Boys that is to stop naughty people accessing media your parents prefer you not to see. Discuss the matter with them and don't try to subvert your parents concern for your mental healt by involving us in your naughtiness. These DVD's have codes applied and parents who paid for them know what sequence to enter on the remote to unlock them, so try asking them if its suitable for you and have THEM do it

Parental control code that i didnt set

The factory preset override code for the parental lock is 3308. This code, however, will NOT remove the parental lock code in place. This is just a code to get around the lock. I'm not sure how to dissable to code someone else entered...still trying to figure that out!
