Master key for parental control


  1. Navigate to the Wii Menu by pressing the HOME button on a Wii Remote and selecting "Wii Menu."
  2. Look at the date and time displayed on the Wii Menu and ensure they are correct. If incorrect, they will need to be changed in order for you to complete the PIN reset process. You will not be able to reset the PIN until the date is correct.
  3. Select the Wii Options icon in the lower-left corner of the Wii Channel Menu.
  4. Select "Wii Settings."
  5. Click on the blue arrow to reach the Wii System Settings 2 menu options.
  6. Select "Parental Controls," then "Yes."
  7. Enter your PIN or select "I forgot."
  8. Answer your secret question or tap "I forgot."
    • If you know the answer to your secret question, enter it to unlock parental controls. The system will go to the change parental controls screen and you will be able to change your PIN.
      • Be sure to enter the secret question exactly as you originally typed it, as the answer is case sensitive.
    • If you don't know the answer to your secret question, tap "I forgot."
  9. A screen will appear showing you a request code.
  10. With that request code, you will need to do a request that involves charging US$0.50 from a credit card, to confirm that you're an adult. Or should your kids try to circumvent your parental code, it will show up on your credit card bill.
You can request the reset here:

Parental controls are lock


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 no longer remember your PIN, nor the answer to your secret question, then you will need to contact Nintendo Consumer Service for assistance.  To acces and change the parental control settings you SHOULD:
  1. Access the Wii System Settings
  2. Click on the blue arrow to reach the Wii System Settings 2 menu options.
  3. Choose "Parental Controls" and select "Yes."
  4. Enter the 4-digit PIN and select OK. If you have forgotten the PIN, select " I forgot" to answer the secret question. (Answers to the secret question are case sensitive.) You will now be in the Parental Controls menu, and can change the following items:

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.

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.)
