Question about Durabrand Portable DVD
I Recently wen to watch a movie. it was blocked by the parental control feature.
this feature hasnt been used in a while. and i am wondering if anyone knows how to reset the 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
