Re: Movies

I\ve had many questions about this, If you just bought this console, try some obvious passwords, try 0000, 1234, 4321, etc.

I need to cde to unlock my playstation 2 t watch r rated movies.

To reset the parental lock password or disable the parental lock, follow these easy steps

Step 1

Turn on your PS2 and choose the menu screen where you would normally enter the password. Instead of entering a password, go to the DVD setup menu. Go to "custom setup" and choose "parental controls".

Step 2

When you are asked for the code or password, press the select button on your controller and enter the number "7444". Now set the parental lock to "off".

Step 3

Press "reset" on the front of the game console to save your settings. When the system reboots, you should be able to view your previously censored games or DVDs. You will also have the opportunity to choose your own password, allowing you to turn the parental lock on and off, either manually or automatically by game or movie ratings.

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?

My PS3 wont play any movies but still plays video games???

Ok so its 60GB its definatly alright to play movies and all sorts, but if you are that desperate to watch movies then you may want to reset to factory settings just access settings and look for reset console, then it would start from square 1 you have to make your accounts and earn your trophies again but if you want to watch movies desperatly then recommed you do that or go to game settings in the game column and have a poke in the folders because there might be a few things in there or go to the film column and check for setting sin there or go to the settings column and check for film settings in there its nothing to do with the updates thats for sure because ive done the same as you but havent played the game in a while but im still able to watch films

Ok first try 0 1 2 3 because that is the preset code for the ps2 or if that dont work insert any dvd movie, go to setup and access the parental control settings(press select) When asked for your code enter "7444"; It will prompt you again to type in your password. Type "0000" and then scroll down to the movie rating options and choose "off". Hope it helps you out!

Parental control password

i don't know if you changed the parental control code or not but when it comes to put the code press select and then insert 7444 and it will delete the password and will ask you to put the new one then add any three digit number and then when the movie starts press select and go to setup and then parental control tab and turn it off now there will be no passwords..........

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. ;)

Start a DVD, then stop playback. Clear "resume play" (press stop twice), goto the Control Panel, the select SETUP, then ADVANCED SETUP. Select PARENTAL CONTROL, then press Select. Enter the number 7444.the old password is clear, now you can set a new one and change the rating.

Code deleting

mine used to do that as well. But I think code is set as default to 000 so just enter that when it asks.

Parental Control Feature on the PS2

3 answers for the price of one. Start a DVD, bring up the menu with select, and then go to Setup. It's in there. To get it to actually save, eject and take out the DVD (kicking it back to the setup screen) before you turn the power off when you are watching any dvd, hit select on the controller to bring up the onscreen menu. on the menu, under the number 7, there is a icon called setup. click it. hit right on the digital pad (on the controller) two times and you will be at custom setup. now, go down to the parental controll part and set it up to your liking. While in the "custom settings/parental control" options press SELECT and enter the 4-digit number "7444" whenever the parental control display asks you for your password. the old password will then be deleted.
