The parental code is on, but I didn't set it and I have no idea of what the code is to turn it off, so we can't use our DVD player.

Is the display showing 'LOCK'? If yes you have to press 'STOP' for about 3 seconds to UNLOCK it.

This will make the player region free which may also reveal a menue that either gives you the oppertunity to clear the password or clears it automatically...

1. Turn on the Player (with no discs in)
2. Press the Open/Close button (leave it open, like if you were yet to insert a
DVD)
3. Press the Display button (on the bottom of your remote control, close to the
numbers 0-9)
4. Press the following sequence: 1,3,6,9.
5. Press the number of the Region you want (0 for Region free)
6. Turn off and on your player.

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!

My Memorex 2040 dvd player gives "error parental" when I try to play a dvd. Any idea what this is or how to fix?


The Parental controls for your DVD player has been turned on. The default setting for most Parental Control setup is G rating meaning that anything above a G rating will not play unless the override code is entered. I was unable to locate a copy of your manual, but if you look in your copy for a heading called Parental Controls, it should explain to you what has to be done to either change the rating or remove the control altogether. Unless you have small children that may use your player you can probably remove the controls altogether. Normally you would have to go into your Setup menu, and then look for Parental Controls in that menu. Unless someone setup a code, you should be able to go in and just turn it off. If there has been a code applied and you are unable to find out what it is you will have to contact Memorex support to find out how to remove it. To ensure that it doesn't get turned back on you might want to hide your remote, as you need to use it to turn the feature on and off.

Thank you for the opportunity to assist you in resolving your issue. Should you need further information or assistance please do not hesitate to let us know.

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.

Parental code


although my situation was a bit different, part of msimeomix's solution still worked. after entering the password "3308," the screen went blank. i knew this parental code had worked but it would still not allow me to access the "setup" or "menu" options. i pressed "STOP" and then ejected the disc/turned the DVD player off. upon turning it back on and entering the password "3308" i was able to immediately press "PLAY" and it worked. enjoy the movie :]

Zenith dvb410 parental control


Without the DVD in the player go into your setup menu. Arrow down to the icon that is a lock press enter. arrow down to password and if it says new or change select it. you need to enter a pass code so that when the prompt comes up you can override the parental limits.
if you need to clear your old security code because you have forgotten it the manual says to input the 6 digit number from teh setup menu "210499" I did not do this as I had never set up a security code but the Across the universe DVD will play as long as enter the security code.
