Question about Protron PDV-288 7" LCD Portable DVD Player

1 Answer

Unlocking parental code

I recently purchased this dvd player , but the parental control is on and I do not have the code to unlock it and the unit I purchased did not come with manual which I am sure would have a factory reset code in it or a customer service number at least? I would like to have either or both of these questions answered if you could thanks for your time and consideration with my problem.

MAnual/Reset Parental Control Code

According to the manual, "If you forget the password, you can erase your current password by pressing the number 8 button on the remote four times, thn press the enter button to confirm the setting. PASSWORD: 8888"

A picture of an unlocked lock indicates that Parent Lock is NOT active.

Parent Lock Levels:
1: Kid Safe 5 : PG_R
2: G 6 : R
3: PG 7 : NC _17
4: PG_13 8: Adult

It also says that it takes 3-5 seconds to reset the unit to the factory default. I hope this helps! Karen

I have the manual for the dwm-380 sanyo dvd with tvg.
Go to setup. Then Parental controls. Then scroll down to where you can enter a 4 digit code. To unlock and reset, enter 788444. I know this is 6 digits punch in all 6 then hit enter. This will unlock it. Next, you enter in your 4 digit number. This is your personal code. This may or may not work on other models. Take care.

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!
