Hi. I can't seem to find the manual for the player and on some of my DVD's, I get the message about a Parental Lock was set on the player and to please eject the DVD, so it won't play at all. How can I fix this problem or turn off this lock?

When I put a dvd in the sony playstion 2 slim it says (This movie will not play due to the parental setting of the player) how do I remove parental restrictions for dvd's & cd's Thanks

In settings there is the parental lock code. If Bought Brand new, then the defaut password is usually 1234, so give that a try. After which you can set it to the most allowing setting, which i believe is 8 and then any movie shoud play. However if you have set a password then you either need to reset it with a PS2 format disc.

Purchased the pink Disney Princess DVD player from KMart. When you turn it on and insert a DVD to play, screen comes up saying the Parental Controls have been set (Universal Studios picture in upper left...

lots of electrical items will use a default security code of 0000 or 1234.
if there is nothing in the manual and these codes do not work, then your best option would be to return it to the store for them to find the codes or refund/refpace the item

How do you reset the parental control code?

Called Zenith.  They said: turn on the DVD player.  Hit "set-up". Scroll down to the "lock" icon.  Scroll over to "Rating". Scroll over to unlock.  Enter 0000.  Click on Ok.  Enter 0000 again, click Ok again.  Menu should read unlock.  Voila!
