Can't use DVD cause of parental block

Somehow there is a parental block on my DVD player (used to be a housemate's who no longer lives here). We don't know the password! So it won't let us watch most movies. What can we do?!

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.

JVC XV-M555 DVD player has the parental control set somehow. Need to know how to disable the parental control on this DVD player


Found the manual for the player buried in a box from moving. Procedure is
1) With no DVD in player
2) Press enter while holding down shift to display parental lock menu
3) If you dont remember the password enter 8888 to access the options
4) Use cursor to move arrow to country code option
5) Use right cursor to select country code, then down cursor to move country code to US
6) Use left cursor and down cursor and right cursor to move to set level
7) Use down cursor to toggle through level options. (None removes all blocks)
8) If setting a level toggle down to password and set new 4 digit password.

Battery charging issue


you need to change the battery... because you maybe somehow overcharge the battery or something that might cause the battery to loose it's natural time in playing the DVD Player... and maybe also due to it's longer use... maybe you're using it for a long time....

Blocked error message


I would imagine it's eitehr a Region problem or a parental level problem. Ensure the region DVD matches the Region of your DVD player. Also check the parental rating level within the DVD player is not active or set to 18.
