Master key for parental control


  1. Navigate to the Wii Menu by pressing the HOME button on a Wii Remote and selecting "Wii Menu."
  2. Look at the date and time displayed on the Wii Menu and ensure they are correct. If incorrect, they will need to be changed in order for you to complete the PIN reset process. You will not be able to reset the PIN until the date is correct.
  3. Select the Wii Options icon in the lower-left corner of the Wii Channel Menu.
  4. Select "Wii Settings."
  5. Click on the blue arrow to reach the Wii System Settings 2 menu options.
  6. Select "Parental Controls," then "Yes."
  7. Enter your PIN or select "I forgot."
  8. Answer your secret question or tap "I forgot."
    • If you know the answer to your secret question, enter it to unlock parental controls. The system will go to the change parental controls screen and you will be able to change your PIN.
      • Be sure to enter the secret question exactly as you originally typed it, as the answer is case sensitive.
    • If you don't know the answer to your secret question, tap "I forgot."
  9. A screen will appear showing you a request code.
  10. With that request code, you will need to do a request that involves charging US$0.50 from a credit card, to confirm that you're an adult. Or should your kids try to circumvent your parental code, it will show up on your credit card bill.

How do i unlock parental control, if i forgot my pin


Go into the settings menu, Parental controls, reset parental controls. Click through the confirmation screens, and then it will give you a confirmation code and ask you to call Nintendo.
Instead of calling Nintendo, go to this form and enter the code. Even though it was originally written for the Wii, marcan's reset code generator will give you a valid code that you can enter into your DSi to remove the parental control.

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 on your computer and enter this 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!

Need to reset code


Found this on another site, from personal experience but its very well written so here you go.

The Playstation 2 is not only a video game system, but also a DVD player as well. In many families, the Playstation 2 serves as the "kids" DVD player, which means that many parents choose to take advantage of the parental lock feature to limit what kinds of movies the Playstation 2 will play back.
There could be instances where you entered in a parental code months ago, and now can't remember it. Or, you may have purchased a used Playstation 2, and you never knew the code to begin with. If you or the prior owner set a parental lock code, the Playstation 2 won't play back many movies without entering the code first. You could try to hunt down the original owners, or start inputting every code possible starting with 0000, but it's easier to reset the password and disable parental lock using a secret code.
Here is the procedure to reset the parental lock code:
  1. Bring up a screen where the unit asks you to enter in the parental code. You can either insert a restricted disc, or enter the DVD setup menu and go to "parental control" under custom setup.
  2. When the screen asks for the code, press the SELECT button, then enter in the code "7444".
  3. The level adjustment under Parental Control dictates the strictness of the player. The lower the value, the more strict it will be. Either increase the value to lower the restriction, or disable the lock entirely by setting it to "off".
  4. Once you have made your adjustments, be sure that the DVD tray is empty, and press the RESET button on the front of the Playstation 2. It is imperative the tray is clear of any DVD or game for the unit to save your settings.
A note for parents: If you're wondering what is stopping your child from using the above procedure to circumvent your rules, you can verify that they haven't reset the parental control very easily. Since the above procedure eliminates the old password entirely, all you need to do is see if your original password still works. If it does, they did not use the above procedure to break the rules. If it doesn't, they might be trying to pull the wool over your eyes.

Changing parental control


Start the PS2 up and load the DVD. When it shows the Parental screen select YES. When the Password box pops up. Press the Select button on the controller. Type in 7444. Then your password is reset. It will ask you to enter another password. Do that twice. Allow the movie to start. When it gets going pause the movie, Press the Select button on your controller again. The DVD menu pops up. highlight SETUP. When that setup screen appears go to the 3rd icon from the left. Press X. Then highlight Parental Code. Set the parental lockout level to OFF.
