You need to do a Full Factory Reset from a computer that has Leapfrog Connect software downloaded to it. You can't do this from the device itself. It is a master reset which removes the operating system and reloads a fresh version.

    You have to have a parent code to get in to reset to factory settings that way, and I do not have the parent code it was a returned merchandise.

    There appears to be two different issues. Yes, you need the parental code to reset the parental code or turn it off. This is done from the device itself.

    The video shows how to do a full master reset and scrub the whole thing clean to an as new state. you have to use a computer to do this and you have to download Leapfrog Connect software. Set up your account and then click RESET on the connected device which scrubs EVERYTHING on the unit and reloads a clean operating system.

    I did watch the video and a code was not mentioned.

    If that really doesn't work, phone Leapfrog direct, but I am sure I am correct in my answer to you all.

SOURCE: PS2 PARENTAL CONTROL CODE

This is the only way to turn "off" parental control lock on the custom setup screen.

1) turn off ps2 with no dvd in drive.
2) turn on ps2 and insert dvd in drive.
3) when it asks about parental password, choose 'yes'.
4) when prompted for password, press 'select'.
5) the prompt will change and say 'delete password'. enter '7444'.
6) enter a new password (0000 works).
7) registration complete, dvd will start playing.
8) once the movie starts, press 'select'.
9) click the 'stop' icon.
10) click the 'stop' icon again (the icon must be gray even when you have it highlighted).
11) navigate to 'custom setup' ('select', setup icon, custom setup icon)
12) move to parental control option, press right directional button, enter password (0000).
13) move down to 'level'.
14) move up to desired level (off is at the top).
15) click 'x'.
16) go back to 'select' menu options, and press 'play'.
17) while movie is playing, eject disk and remove dvd.
18) turn ps2 off using switch on the back, keep off for five seconds.
19) turn on ps2, put dvd back in.
20) happy dance. ;)

SOURCE: bought a used playstation 2-need to get parental

Here is the procedure to reset the parental lock code:
1. Bring up a screen where the unit asks you to enter in the parental code. You can either insert a restricted disc, or enter the DVD setup menu and go to "parental control" under custom setup.
2. When the screen asks for the code, press the SELECT button, then enter in the code "7444".
3. The level adjustment under Parental Control dictates the strictness of the player. The lower the value, the more strict it will be. Either increase the value to lower the restriction, or disable the lock entirely by setting it to "off".
4. Once you have made your adjustments, be sure that the DVD tray is empty, and press the RESET button on the front of the Playstation 2. It is imperative the tray is clear of any DVD or game for the unit to save your settings.

If this does not work, the other code is usually 0000. However if they change the default password, then it will be hard to find out.
