If you forget your PIN, it's possible to reset it by following these steps:

  1. Open the System Settings software from the HOME Menu.
  2. Select Parental Controls and tap "Forgot PIN".
  3. You will be prompted to enter the answer to your secret question. Once entered, you will gain access to the Parental Controls front page. You can reset your PIN here by tapping "Change PIN" and following the on-screen instructions.
If you have also forgotten the answer to your secret question, you can have a master key sent to your registered email address by following these steps:
  1. Open the System Settings software from the HOME Menu.
  2. Select Parental Controls and tap "Forgot PIN".
  3. When prompted to enter the answer to your secret question, tap "I Forgot". If the partial email address displayed on screen is correct, tap "OK". The system will connect to the internet and display further information. Shortly an email containing a master key will be sent to your registered email address. The master key is valid for 48 hours.

I forgot my pin and i need help finding it


Go to Nintendo.com. Search through support menu and go to parental lock. There is a link to reset the pin. You would pay $0.50 and they will send a reset code via email. I have also called Nintendo help line for a reset code.

Do not have a nintendoDSI operations manual to reset parental controls


How to Remove Parental Controls:
Use the information below to remove any Parental Controls that have been put in place.
  1. On the Nintendo DSi Menu, use the stylus to select the Settings ("wrench") icon.
  2. Select the right arrow twice to reach the third page, then select "Parental Controls."
  3. Select "Yes," to change the parental controls.
  4. You will be prompted for your 4-digit PIN.
    • If you know the PIN, select the empty text box and enter the PIN using the on-screen keyboard, then select "OK" to continue.
    • If you don't know the PIN, select "I forgot," then select the empty text box for the answer to the secret question and enter it using the on-screen keyboard. Select "OK" to continue.
    • If you do not know the answer to your Secret Question, tap "I Forgot."

    • The screen below will appear. Look at the top of the upper screen to see the date your system is set to, and make sure it is today's correct date.

I have a 3ds I bought used its in spanish I speak english but it wants a pin to reset it is there something I can do to reset it


Since you won't be able to utilize the secret questions settings (I am assuming this PIN and secret questions were created by the previous owner), this is what you will need to do:
Type in any code so that it prompts you that the PIN is incorrect. Now click on the secret questions option and enter anything. Now click the "iforgot" option. You will be provided with an "Inquiry Number" that you must enter at Nintendo's Customer Service site. (http://ds.about.com/gi/o.htm?zi=1/XJ&zTi=1&sdn=ds&cdn=gadgets&tm=261&gps=438_569_1276_778&f=00&tt=12&bt=1&bts=1&zu=http%3A//www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/3ds/en_na/ts_settings.jsp%3Fmenu%3Dparental%2520controls%26submenu%3Dctr-ts-settings-parental-controls-forgot).

When your Inquiry Number is entered correctly on the website, you wil be given the option to join a live chat with Customer Service, or you can call Nintendo's Technical Support at 1-800-255-3700. You will need your Inquiry Number and the representative will give you a master code to over ride the existing PIN on your 3DS.
*****Be sure that before you retrieve your inquiry number that you ensure the date and time is correct on your DS. For some reason this can result in an issue if this precaution is not taken.
