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

    Does anyone know how to set a password, I have selected "Kid Safe" and hit enter but it doesn't save and still plays 18 rated films without asking for a password. Any suggestions please?

Hello Hummer,

Please follow the instuctions below to reset the password and switch off the parental control on the Zenith DBV412.

1. Switch on the TV and DVD player
2. Switch the TV to the input for the DVD player
3. Remove any disc from the player
4. Press the SETUP key on the Zenith remote to open the on-screen menu
5. Press 2 1 0 4 9 9 using the numerical keys on the Zenith remote.
6. Press SETUP again to close the menu

This will clear any password that has been set. Now you need to switch off the parental control:

8. Press the SETUP key to open the on-screen menu again
9. Use the down arrow to highlight the PADLOCK for the parental control settings
10. Press the RIGHT arrow once to enter the parental control menu
11. Highlight RATING and press the RIGHT arrow once.

You will be asked to set a password. Enter something simple and easy to remember, e.g. 0000 then press ENTER. You will need to confirm the password by entering the same number again, then press enter again.

12. Use the UP/DOWN arrows to highlight UNLOCK then press ENTER
13. Press SETUP again to close the menu

You should now be able to insert your Across the Universe disc and play it. If you are still unable to watch the disc or you are unable to switch off the parental control feature, please let me know.

Regards,
BElectric

How can I change the parental control? Somehow the parental controls are set on the DVD player and it will not allow me to play certain dvds without a password


Unfortunately there are no known ways to change the user code. The parental controls are set because it's a DVD player for kids - and you must input the password every time you want to play a DVD.

1369 is the code to allow you to play blocked movies. I still haven't found a way to change the level. Again, you have to input the code each time. I know it stinks, but I guess they didn't think of the parental feature in its entirety.

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!
