I just bought a used PS2 and went to go watch a family guy dvd and i get a message saying that my parental settings wont allow me to watch this dvd please enter a password to change the parental settings. This sucks, is there anyway around this? Or do i need to take it back? Please hellp.

~note: I know this isnt mac related but, ive never had a problem posted here that someone couldnt solve. Thanx a bunch.

A quick search on Google turns up a possible master password of 7-4-4-4. When asked for the password, I think you are supposed to press the "select" button on your controller before entering the password. If this works, it should ask you to create a new password.

Try that, and let me know if it works.

I've always used 1-2-3-4

I believe that is the default password for a new PS2. I was assuming that the used PS2 purchased by markjones05 had a different password set by the original owner, and that mark didn't have that password.

7-4-4-4 works on mine. That's the default listed in the manual too. They may have changed it in later models, mine's an early one. Do you have the manual? It'll tell you there.

Well 7-4-4-4 never worked and i have no manual, so while i was booting up a dvd one day i was just tapping x to get things moving and i happened to keep tapping x-x-x-x during the password screen by mistake and apparantly the password is 0-0-0-0. So i got it thanx everyone for your help.

Unless you really want to have parental controls on, I suggest you just go ahead and turn it off completely. After loading a DVD in your PS2 access the parental control menu. After entering your password, you can set parental control to "off." In order to save the change, you MUST eject the DVD BEFORE turning off your PS2. This is the only way your PS2 will save your settings.

Now you will never be nagged about changing the parental control level again.

The PS2 has the most botched parental control system I have ever seen.

The master parental code for the PS2 is 7-4-4-4

While entering the last 4 you must hold down the select button

It works on my one.

Heh, you know parental controls are annoying when even the "parent" can't by-pass it...

Ok this is how you fix that-the directions are long and detailed, but just think of the fact that you wont have to enter a password for every dvd. Here we go: Turn off your ps2. then turn it on and insert the dvd. when it asks you to temporarily change parental controls to whatever level say yes. It then asks you for your password-hit select, it should now say delete password. enter the password 7444. it'll ask you to create a new password-make it 0000. itll ask you to confirm-enter 0000. it then should say registration complete and will continue to dvd menu. start playing the movie. once the movie begins playing press select. you should have a bunch of icons-click on the stop icon-the movie should stop playing, bring up the icons again by pressing select and the stop button should be grey even though you r highlighting it. if it is still blue press it again. once the stop button is grey, even though you r highlighting it, click on the icon underneath the 7-looks like a briefcase and is called setup. hit the right directional button until you r at the custom setup screen. hit the down directional button until you are on the parental control setting. hit the right directional button. it should ask for your password-enter 0000. press the down directional button until you are at level. press the right directional button. press up on the directional button until you reach the desired level (off is at the very top). click x. go back to the original icon list and press play. play the movie to make sure it plays. DO NOT TURN OFF PS2. once the movie is playing, press the eject button and remove the dvd. close the tray. once the tray is closed turn off the ps2 by using the switch on the back of the ps2. Wait at least 5 seconds. turn your ps2 back on and insert the dvd. the settings should be saved and you should be able to play dvds without the annoying parental controls. I know these instructions are long, but i needed to make them as detailed as possible inorder to make sure everyone can do this correctly. I received these instructions straight from the tech support people at sony and it worked-good luck.
