Page 55 of the user manual shows a way you may be able to 'reset' the player back to factory defaults and/or if a parental lock has been set and the password is unknown/forgotten:

* Press the STOP button on the front of the unit while you press the STOP button on the remote control-keep pressing both buttons for approximately 3 seconds (until the 'padlock' icon disappears from the front panel display). Release both buttons (the player should be unlocked). If that doesn't work, try resetting the DVD/VCR (instructions are listed below).

* Reset the DVD/VCR: on the front of the unit, press and hold the STANDBY/ON button while you press and hold the STOP button-wait at least 3 seconds before you release both of the buttons.

You'll need to set up your menu preferences because this Reset Procedure returns the DVD/VCR's menus to the factory default settings and also erases the disc library.

You can always go to the above site and download the free pdf of the owner's manual for this model if necessary (follow the prompts).

Give the suggestions a try before considering downloading the documentation.

Need factory parental code for rca dvd player RC5215P


First of all, thank you very much for choosing FIXYA today for your online technical support needs.


See page 64 of the User's Manual for detailed instructions on how to reset the LOCK feature if you forget the password.


Basically you just press and hold the STOP button on the front of the machine as well as the STOP button on the remote control and hold them both down at the same time for about 3 seconds.


Here is a direct link to the ONLINE USER'S MANUAL for that model:


http://support.radioshack.com/support_video/doc66/66049.pdf


To view the Owner's Manual with Operating Instructions just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and blue highlighted section of text just above.


This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated and the contents of the Owner's Manual.


You may need ADOBE READER installed on your computer to read PDF documents, although many computers already have this type of utility pre-installed.


You can download this free at WWW.ADOBE.COM if necessary. Click on the DOWNLOAD ADOBE READER button on right side of the ADOBE home page when you get there, then follow the onscreen instructions to install the software on your computer.


I truly hope that was helpful to you.


Good luck and take care.


Joe.

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.

I just bought a used PS2 system and when trying to play a dvd (shrek2) it asked for a parental code. How can I reset the code?

Forgotten pass code for parental lock


Try 3308. That is what is shown in the oweners manual I received with my Qwestar 360MVP. If that doesn't work, go to DEFAULTS and select RESET. This should give you the factory initial settings then try 3308 again. Good luck!!
