Does anyone know the password to unlock parental lock on a Copy DVD R1300? Tia!


The parental lock is not on the DVD, it is on the player itself. Only mummy and daddy can turn it off. The player reads the parental code on the DVD and the DVD Player locks access.

DVD players requires a password to operate. Don't know it. How do you reset it


I am not sure of your model, but if it is a Philips DVD player, the manual for a DVP3982 (Philips) shows information about disc lock/parental control setup (page 44).

The default password is '136900'.

To change the password:
1) Press OK to access the change password menu.

2) Use the numeric keypad 0-9 on the remote control to enter your existing six-digit password at { Old Password }.

Note: When doing this for the first time or if you forget your existing password, enter '136900'.

3) Enter the new six-digit password at { New Password }.

4) Enter the new six-digit password again at { Confirm PWD }.

5) Press OK to confirm and exit.

You can but try it. It may or may not work. As I said, I am not sure of your model number (you didn't provide it).

My DVP 3962/37 is asking for a password and I have no idea what to do! It is a Phillips DVD player.


Hi there,

This sounds like the child access control lock or the disc lock to me. One feature of Philips machine's is a child access lock which you can set to a level of your choice. When the machine prompts you for the password try entering the following code 136900 then press enter this is the default password code for this particular model (see your user manual page 44, the manual can be downloaded from the Philips website) you can change this password if you wish after this. To deactivate the child lock select Setup menu then pressing up or down select Parental. the the protection level is rated from 1 to 8 select the level you wish by using the up or down buttons and then press enter it will then ask for the password (default 136900) level 8 will deactivate the parental control.

Hope this helps,
James

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 :]

I cant get the parental lock off of my dvd and it wont play any movies at all


Try this. The mintek dvd 2580 password " screen " looks like it wants four numbers, it actually wants five numbers. And they are 88888 as set by the manufacturer. Unless someone has changed it from its original password. If you ever need the code for the remote it should be 0717 . I hope this helps.

"disk locked"


Some DVD(like freebie from newspaper) needs password to see all the contents on it. If this is not the case, you might have parental control set in DVD system. Look for it in system control panel. boofoowoo
