Found the manual for the player buried in a box from moving. Procedure is
1) With no DVD in player
2) Press enter while holding down shift to display parental lock menu
3) If you dont remember the password enter 8888 to access the options
4) Use cursor to move arrow to country code option
5) Use right cursor to select country code, then down cursor to move country code to US
6) Use left cursor and down cursor and right cursor to move to set level
7) Use down cursor to toggle through level options. (None removes all blocks)
8) If setting a level toggle down to password and set new 4 digit password.

How can I change the parental control? Somehow the parental controls are set on the DVD player and it will not allow me to play certain dvds without a password

Unfortunately there are no known ways to change the user code. The parental controls are set because it's a DVD player for kids - and you must input the password every time you want to play a DVD.

1369 is the code to allow you to play blocked movies. I still haven't found a way to change the level. Again, you have to input the code each time. I know it stinks, but I guess they didn't think of the parental feature in its entirety.

The parental lock comes on on certain dvd movies.(JVC xv-n322s)

Well Girls and Boys that is to stop naughty people accessing media your parents prefer you not to see. Discuss the matter with them and don't try to subvert your parents concern for your mental healt by involving us in your naughtiness. These DVD's have codes applied and parents who paid for them know what sequence to enter on the remote to unlock them, so try asking them if its suitable for you and have THEM do it

Parental password actual dvd player is a jvc xv-m555

Here's a link to your specific manual. A quick help would be to choose no when it asks to temporarily allow playback. Then press shift and enter. Enter the password. Set the country code and playback level you want. You may have to play a different disc before you can play the original one you wanted to see. (the m555 has this glitch)
If you don't know or can't easily guess the password, check in the manual.

Automatically lock???

ATTENTION Opening your player will void the warranty! Modification are at your own risk! No guarantee for function!

selfmade hack

1. Remove the top cover. 2. Locate wire jumper B532 o the printed circuit board nearby the front panel, it can be found just underneath the connector linking this board with the one above. 3. Cut bridge B532. 4. Apply power, PW (Password) appears on the display. 5. Enter the code 5963 with the remote controller, PW OK will be displayed. 6. Switch the set off and on ... and it will be zonefree !!!

Important information It seems that JVC received some complaints from the software industry that these players were much too easy to modify and they had to change the design to prevent further 'multi-zoning'! All sets with a serial number starting with 134xxxxx or 144xxxxx will normally need a new PROM to make them a real multizone machine! Don't despair if you have one of the newer types because there's a hidden multizone 'backdoor' ! Yes, the above mentioned modification will still work after you plug in the power cord, at this moment the set will play all zones as long as you don't switch it off with the standby button, once this happens it will be back to zone 2 and you'll need to unplug/plug in the power cord again to get it back to multizone. ATTENTION Opening your player will void the warranty! Modification are at your own risk! No guarantee for function!
