Parental Control Problem

My dvd player works fine, but for some reason every time I try to play Across the Universe, the parental control blocker comes up.  I type in my password, and it says play on the machine, but the screensaver stays up.  No other buttons work during when it supposedly playing.  The parental control button keeps popping up.  Anyone else ever have this problem?  I tried to call and/or go to the website, but neither are operational.  Sucks!    Thanks.... Lola

    I have the exact same problem. I got "Across the Universe" from Netflix and it won't play. It asks me to put in a parental block code after it loads. I thought the dvd was messed up so I got another one from Netflix and had the same problem. The dvd player won't let me set a new password and I have never set up any kind of parental blocking or password.

    Exact same problem with Across the Universe, Zenith DVD player DVB412, only disc that this happens on, never set up a parental control block. Love to know if there's a solution.

    We have rented from NetFlix and Blockbuster and have borrowed the film ACROSS THE UNIVERSE, and still it will not play on our Samsung DVD player. No message comes up after PLAY; it just goes into a waiting blue screen with the Samsung logo floating around, as if there is no DVD in the machine.
    We have loaded the Special Features disc, and it plays fine. We have tried the remote, we have tried the manual buttons, but nothing has worked so far.
    Are there any other suggestions?

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 :)

Zenith DVD player DVB412 is requiring an entry for a Parental Control Limit on a brand new Across the Universe DVD. I've tried 0000, 3308 to reset the code, the reset button. It looks like others had...


Hello Hummer,

Please follow the instuctions below to reset the password and switch off the parental control on the Zenith DBV412.

1. Switch on the TV and DVD player
2. Switch the TV to the input for the DVD player
3. Remove any disc from the player
4. Press the SETUP key on the Zenith remote to open the on-screen menu
5. Press 2 1 0 4 9 9 using the numerical keys on the Zenith remote.
6. Press SETUP again to close the menu

This will clear any password that has been set. Now you need to switch off the parental control:

8. Press the SETUP key to open the on-screen menu again
9. Use the down arrow to highlight the PADLOCK for the parental control settings
10. Press the RIGHT arrow once to enter the parental control menu
11. Highlight RATING and press the RIGHT arrow once.

You will be asked to set a password. Enter something simple and easy to remember, e.g. 0000 then press ENTER. You will need to confirm the password by entering the same number again, then press enter again.

12. Use the UP/DOWN arrows to highlight UNLOCK then press ENTER
13. Press SETUP again to close the menu

You should now be able to insert your Across the Universe disc and play it. If you are still unable to watch the disc or you are unable to switch off the parental control feature, please let me know.

Regards,
BElectric

I tried putting a new DVD into my player ( Kenwood DVF-3080) It's asking me for Parental Control Limit code. I've never set parental controls due to the fact that I have no children. Other DVD's play...


If all the other DVD s you have work fine it could be misreading the DVD try fully RESETTING the power to the DVD Player by removing the power plug from the Wall, if the problem is still there and all the other DVD s you have work just fine then the problem is with that one DVD you have let me know if you need any more help.

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.

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.

Dvd troubles


Same problems with my unit.  But, try this... I think it worked.  First, you can not get to the setup screen for the unit with a DVD in the player.  So, remove the DVD first:  Unplug the unit, wait a few seconds, plug it back in.  Then hit the DVD open button and remove DVD in player. 

 

I think the issue with not reading certain DVDs is a problem with the "parental control" on the unit. Without setting parental control there were a few DVDs I could not play and sometimes (not always) I was asked about parental control before a movie would play.  At the Sony Blue DVD screen, select Setup on the remote control.  Select DVD setup and get to Parental control.  Set a password.  This will then take you to a "rating" screen.  By setting the rating very high (I set mine for #8) any movie should play without needing the password.  With no password set, you can not change the "rating" and hence mine was set at #1 (kids).  It seems to have worked for now anyway.  Good luck.

How do you reset the parental control code?


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!
