Resetting parental controls


there seems that only 4 digits are the max but I could be mistaken, as far as reseting the password there is nothing listed on the Vizio website in the manuals ect for reseting the parental controls, probably due to security for the owner.

But there is a solution
if you call 877 MY V I Z I O
with you model number of your unit and make them aware of the parental lock issue there might be a way for them to explain the resting everything back to factory settings.

Need a master key to reset parental control on dsi


Go to parental controls in system settings.
When it asks 'Change Parental Controls settings?' tap yes.
When it brings up a numeric keypad, tap the center button, "I Forgot".
Next, tap "I Forgot" again. Now you will be shown a screen with a number at the bottom (the 'inquiry number').
Go to: http://wii.marcansoft.com/parental.psp
Enter the 'inquiry number' number in the field marked confirmation number. Set the current date in your timezone and click get reset code. And Voila! Your DSi is now parental control free!

Forgot parental control pin and question


Hi littlewoman3,
If you no longer remember your PIN, nor the answer to your secret question, you will need a Master key to reset your unit.
The ideal and the recommended way is for you to call Nintendo's customer service ( 800 255 3700 ). They may ask you for your date of birth before giving you the Master key.



However, If you don't have the time to call Nintendo, you can try this:
->Go to parental controls in system settings.
-> tap "yes" when it asks "Change Parental Controls settings?"
-> tap "I Forgot" twice. You will then be given an inquiry number.
-> Using your computer, go to the attached link and enter the number in the field marked "confirmation number" ( Be sure to set the current date in your timezone)
http://wii.marcansoft.com/parental.wsgi?number=25613354&date=0811&submit=Get+Reset+Code
->click get "Reset code"
You can now try to reset your settings using this code.
I hope this solves your problem. Wishing for you to get the best results.
All the best to you !

I cant reset parental controls


Activated by a PIN number, you can set Parental Controls on your TV and/or cable set-top box to control the programs that can be viewed on your TV. There are three ways to block programs:

  • By Channel
  • By Rating
  • By Time Period (Not available in all areas.)
The V-Chip understands television program ratings and blocks programs based upon the rating level selected. All TV sets that are 13 inches or larger are required to incorporate the V-Chip technology. Parents set rating levels so that certain TV shows need a password to be viewed. For more information on the V-Chip and program ratings visit the FCC V-Chip site.
Several cable and satellite companies offer parental control options. They allow specific channels to be blocked so that they cannot be viewed.These companies also offer the ability to block shows based on language, violence, nudity, and rating levels. This offers more flexibility than the V-Chip.

Hope it helps ;-)

Forgot the parental code how to resest the wii system


Here is what nintendo says about your problem:
If you have Parental Controls turned on, but cannot remember your PIN, you will be prompted to select and answer a secret question that will allow you to change your PIN in the "Game Settings and PIN" menu. If you forget your PIN and the answer to your secret question, please call Nintendo Consumer Service at 1-800-255-3700.
Before you call!
In order to assist you, we will need your Wii Parental Controls Confirmation Number. To get this number:
  1. On the first screen of the Parental Controls where you enter your PIN, select "I forgot."
  2. When prompted to answer your secret question, select "I forgot."
  3. The following screen will appear. Please write down your Confirmation Number and have it handy when you speak to a representative.
So as you can see you don't have to reset the whole system.Anyway if you really want to reset the wii system try this out:

1.Go to system options
2.Press format wii system memory

That should reset the whole system.

I need a parental control reset code


Hi there

Click the "Wii" button located on the bottom left corner of the screen on the Wii Main menu.

Click the "Wii Settings" button on the System Settings screen. Look for the button with the wrench icon.

Move to the second page of the Wii System Settings screen by clicking the blue arrow.

Click the "Parental Controls" button on the second System Settings screen.

Click "I Forgot" when asked asked to enter your four-digit PIN.

Answer the secret question displayed on the screen. You provided the question when you set up your Wii. Note that the answer to the question is case sensitive.

If you answer correctly, you'll have access to the Parental Control Settings. Reset your PIN on this screen by entering a new PIN number and a new answer to the secret question, then clicking OK.

Click "I Forget" if you can't remember the answer to the question. Nintendo displays a message screen with text telling you to contact Nintendo customer support. At the bottom of the screen is a confirmation number.

Write down the confirmation number so you don't forget it, and leave your Wii turned on with the confirmation number screen displayed.

Call Wii customer support at 800-255-3700. Tell Nintendo customer support your confirmation number. You'll receive a master key code to reset your parental control PIN. Write down the master key code.

Return to your Wii, and click the "Enter Master Key" button. On the Master Key screen, enter the five-digit master key you received from Nintendo customer support, then click "Confirm Master Key." The Wii displays a message stating that "Parental Controls are Now Disabled." Click "OK" for the Wii to return you to page two of the Wii Systems Setting screen.


Click the "Parental Controls" button on the Wii System Settings screen. The Parental Controls screen will now show that you have no parental control settings enabled. Enter a new four-digit PIN number and secret question to reset your PIN, then click "OK."
