From the System area of the Xbox Dashboard, select Family Settings, Console Controls.
Enter an incorrect pass code.
You will be told that your pass code is incorrect. Select Reset pass code.
You will then be shown your pass-code question and asked to answer it.


Hope that helps, best of luck.

    Then sadly you may be out of luck. Best thing to do is to contact Xbox support and find out if they can reset it.

Forgot password to unlock family settings on xbox 360?


I've managed to come across this from someone who called microsoft with the same problem (it seems quite common)
Go into settings Console settings Then device settings (The one with the blue screen)
Then go:
left trigger, right trigger, x, y, left bumper, right bumper,
left with left stick, up with left stick, right with left stick, x

If you have trouble use the pad instead of stick, but I could only get the stick to work..

I hope that helps

Regards
Mike

Dont know password


if that is a password for the xbox live passcode, the passcode being asked everytime you sign in, the password is the password itself when you try to recover your gamertag

if that is a passcode for watching videos, or something.

that is a family settings passcode, the only way to override that is to call tech support, give the console serial number of your xbox of course, the serial number has a unique reset code attached to it..
tech support will give you some things to press on sytem info page of the dashboard to reset the family settings
