    My girlfriends parents bought this TV and it has a parental lock and will only play certain DVDs.  They never set one either.  Is there some kind of over ride that would disable the code?

Does anyone know the password to unlock parental lock on a Copy DVD R1300? Tia!


The parental lock is not on the DVD, it is on the player itself. Only mummy and daddy can turn it off. The player reads the parental code on the DVD and the DVD Player locks access.

Zenith XBR716 DVD Recorder / VCR Combo parental bypass


I don't know if this will work but try entering four 0 (zeros) first. If it doesn't work enter as many 0 (zeros) that you can and see if that works. Hope this helps :)

Rca drc8295n reset parental codes I bought this unit at a yard sale for five bucks... It plays cd, vhs tapes, but when I put a dvd in it wont play and I see a pad lock on the little display. I am assuming...


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.

( sourced from: http://www.retrevo.com/support/RCA-DRC8295N-DVD-Players-manual/id/402bh648/t/2/ )

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.

The parental lock is on and I can't get rid of it. When you turn the unit on, it goes to 'lock' and won't let you go any farther.


Try taking any dvd or tape out of the unit, then using the remote, hit the menu button on the remote. From there, go to the set up or preferences menu. (If you havent set a parental lock code, you may need to do that first.) You can set your preference for what rating and how often the parental lock is in effect.

I hope this helps!

MY CHILD OF 3 YRS OLD ACCIDENTALLY PUT PARENTAL CONTROL ON MY DVD/VHS COMBO IS THERE ANY WAY TO UNLOCK IT


By parental control I don't know if you mean child lock. If that's the case you should be able to turn it off by pressing child lock on the remote control until off shows in the display window.

My DVD player is locked, the display shows a red key.


Hi, This sounds like a parental lock issue. Try going into the set up menu and press the down key choosing custom by pressing enter (this is in the user manual page 20 - 22) then go down and select parental. If you know your parental control password code then enter it, if not the reset code is 4737 you will then need to create a new 4 digit code,There are 9 levels to choose from 1 - 8 and all, all being the selection that removes the parental lock. Hope this helps. James

MAnual/Reset Parental Control 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
