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.)

You should be able to go into the Wii settings menu and clear all the settings. That should restore the Wii to its factory settings.

Hi, If you are in the Uk all you need to do is phone up Nintendo customer support and say you require a master key. they will ask you for a few details and then will generate one for you.
The number you need to call is 0870 6060247

Depends if its pre owned or not...if it is then phone 0870 6060247 and follow the options. they won't give you a master key pin over the phone but they should offer to format your console for you. obviously this means being without your console for a while but its something to do with data protection and previous owners details being stored on the hard drive.

I am trying to input the password or key to connect a wireless router. I put in the password but it says incorrect. Where is the key? For wireless, do I need a LAN adapter? Error code 51331 Thank you


You don't need a lan adapter for the Wii, in order to find your network key you will have to log onto the wireless router and retrieve it from the wireless setting.

Hi i have just sold my wii and the person cant get onto it cause it has our passwords in it and our little wii people how does she reset it.


She will have to call 1-800-255-3700 (i think that's the right number) and tell them she needs a master code to the console. She will need to explain your, uh, situation, and they will give her the code within roughly 15 minutes.

What is the master key of parental controls in Nintendo wii its a five digits master key please reply..


The master key is whatever the owner of the console set it as. In order to reset the master key, you need to contact nintendo.
http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/settingsParentalControls_reset.jsp

Alternatively, if you click forgot password twice it will give you a confirmation #. The website below is rumored to be able to take your confirmation # and give you the reset code.

I haven't tested the second method myself personally, but I do know calling nintendo WILL work.

Master key for parental control in the nintendo wii this is my confirmation number 57495392


Go to http://wii.marcansoft.com/parental.psp and enter your confirmation number there, and select the Date that your Wii is showing.

(Note, this 5 digit Master key changes every day, and is also tied to the specific console, but if you go to the site I mentioned above, you can get the correct Master Key for your console, for whatever Today's date is. (Make sure your Wii is set to Today's date.))

(BTW, the number to ring up Nintendo, if you wish to go that route instead, is 1-800-255-3700, however, the website route posted, will get you your unlock code much faster.)
