Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

Parental password? I bought a used PS2 slim and the parental password is set and I obviously don't know what it is to watch DVD's. Does anyone know if there is a system reset I can do. Let me know, thanks.

    What if you are using the game controller and not the remote control? What if you do not have a " restriction disk"? Console was bought from first owner.

Heres the same solution, in a little more depth.
1. Find a movie that needs a password
2. Start it up,
3. When prompted for code, press select. Insert 7444.
4. Hit select again
5. Type new password.
6. Confirm Password
7. Hit select again.

Should work! Happy movie watching.

Here is the procedure to reset the parental lock code:

1. Bring up a screen where the unit asks you to enter in the parental code. You can either insert a restricted disc, or enter the DVD setup menu and go to "parental control" under custom setup.

2. When the screen asks for the code, press the SELECT button, then enter in the code "7444".

3. The level adjustment under Parental Control dictates the strictness of the player. The lower the value, the more strict it will be. Either increase the value to lower the restriction, or disable the lock entirely by setting it to "off".

4. Once you have made your adjustments, be sure that the DVD tray is empty, and press the RESET button on the front of the Playstation 2. It is imperative the tray is clear of any DVD or game for the unit to save your settings.

When I put a dvd in the sony playstion 2 slim it says (This movie will not play due to the parental setting of the player) how do I remove parental restrictions for dvd's & cd's Thanks


In settings there is the parental lock code. If Bought Brand new, then the defaut password is usually 1234, so give that a try. After which you can set it to the most allowing setting, which i believe is 8 and then any movie shoud play. However if you have set a password then you either need to reset it with a PS2 format disc.

I have a sony playstation 2 i do not know the parental password and i cannot watch movies my daughter bought becuz it will ask for parental control to be set to level 8 and u can only say yes or it will...


try passwords 1111 and 7444. these are known sony default passwords. if that doesn't help, unplug it and leave it like that for 72 hours. that should drain the charge enough so it "forgets" the password.

PS2 PARENTAL CONTROL CODE


This is the only way to turn "off" parental control lock on the custom setup screen.

1) turn off ps2 with no dvd in drive.
2) turn on ps2 and insert dvd in drive.
3) when it asks about parental password, choose 'yes'.
4) when prompted for password, press 'select'.
5) the prompt will change and say 'delete password'. enter '7444'.
6) enter a new password (0000 works).
7) registration complete, dvd will start playing.
8) once the movie starts, press 'select'.
9) click the 'stop' icon.
10) click the 'stop' icon again (the icon must be gray even when you have it highlighted).
11) navigate to 'custom setup' ('select', setup icon, custom setup icon)
12) move to parental control option, press right directional button, enter password (0000).
13) move down to 'level'.
14) move up to desired level (off is at the top).
15) click 'x'.
16) go back to 'select' menu options, and press 'play'.
17) while movie is playing, eject disk and remove dvd.
18) turn ps2 off using switch on the back, keep off for five seconds.
19) turn on ps2, put dvd back in.
20) happy dance. ;)

Parental Control Feature on the PS2


3 answers for the price of one. Start a DVD, bring up the menu with select, and then go to Setup. It's in there. To get it to actually save, eject and take out the DVD (kicking it back to the setup screen) before you turn the power off when you are watching any dvd, hit select on the controller to bring up the onscreen menu. on the menu, under the number 7, there is a icon called setup. click it. hit right on the digital pad (on the controller) two times and you will be at custom setup. now, go down to the parental controll part and set it up to your liking. While in the "custom settings/parental control" options press SELECT and enter the 4-digit number "7444" whenever the parental control display asks you for your password. the old password will then be deleted.
