Go into the Parental controls itself, then Click “I forgot on the Pin”entry page, and “I forgot on the Secret Answer” entry page. Your 8digit confirmation code will be on the next page. Enter that code intothe box here http://wii.marcansoft.com/parental.psp and it will spit back the code to unlock it.

Forgotten pin number and question need to get new parental control number.


Ok, when you go to enter the pin number, click "I Forgot" twice. After that, you'll see some random numbers. Write it down or something. Remember that number. Then, go to this website: http://wii.marcansoft.com/parental.psp Enter the number in the Confirmation Number box. Then, enter the date in the second box. Click Get Reset Code. Remember that number. Then, when you go to enter the pin number, enter the number the website gave you. The rest is self-explanatory.

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."

Forgot password for parental control for my wii


Hello paul_hawkesw

If you can´t remember your PIN, you will be prompted to select and answer a secret question that will allow you to retrieve a forgotten Parental Controls PIN. If you are unable to retrieve your PIN by answering your secret question, you´ll have to call Nintendo Consumer Service. You can get this number by going to the Nintendo website, selecting your country, then click on the "contact" link at the bottom of the web page.

Hope this helps. If you require any further assistance, please feel free to contact me.

Hi currently living back at folks and have an annoying brother who keeps using my computers and game consoles he just broke 1tb harddrive and lost all data so i need to password protect everything is there...


Advice pinched from:
http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080119210336AAlIA7q

To put a password on your Wii,
Go to wii Options>Wii Settings
push the + button, and click parental Controls
Click yes and make a 4 digit pin number that's easy for you to remember, but nothing that someone could easily guess. (like the year you 1st joined a team or something) push OK, enter it again and push ok.
Choose a secret question, like what they ask you to choose when you start a new account somewhere (mother's maiden name, your place of birth, etc.) push ok and type in the answer to that question and push ok.
click "game settings and PIN" and (finally) to block one from playing games, change the "highest game rating allowed" option to something low (preferably early childhood so one wont be able to play ANY games without your permission) by pushing the down icon. hit ok, confirm, and "settings complete".

when you go to play a game, it will ask for the PIN everytime, which will eventually be a pain in the neck, but at least you'll know your games are safe

Master key code


Go to http://wii.marcansoft.com/parental.psp and enter your 8 digit confirmation number there. When you do so, make sure that whatever today's date is, your Wii is set to that date. (And select Today's date from one of the 3 possible choices.)

(To get the confirmation number, go into Parental control settings, click I forgot on enter pin screen, and Click I forgot on answer secret question screen. This is where you come to where you enter the master password, and the confirmation number you need, to get this master password.)
