Changing Playstation 2 DVD Password

Apparently my instructions were vague and thanks to reader Hans, he gave me a better set of instructions.

  1. Insert a DVD Movie into the PlayStation®2.
  2. You should receive a message informing you that the Parental Level has been set, and asking if youâ??d like to allow the disc to play. Highlight “Yes” and then press the X button.
  3. A new window will appear asking you to temporarily change the Parental Control to a different level. Again, highlight “Yes”, and then press the X button.
  4. Another window will appear asking you to enter your Password. Above that window are numbers (0-9).
  5. Do not enter your password, but instead, press the select button on your Controller. This will change the text in the window from “Enter Password” to “Delete Password”.
  6. Using the numbers above the window, input 7444. If successful, you will receive a message stating “Deletion Complete”.
  7. Press Select. You will now be asked to register a new password. Please select a four-digit code of your choosing.
  8. You will be asked to confirm your password selection by inputting the same code once again. If successful, you will receive a message stating “Registration Confirmed”.
  9. Now you need to turn off the password altogether. The movie should have started playing by now. Press select and chose Setup. Go to the parental control “tab” and set the level to “off”.
  10. Now you should be able to watch any movie.

Old Instructions
I was trying to find out how to change my Playstation 2 DVD Parental Control Password since I am the only one who uses it. I found a resource that explained how to accomplish this.

  1. Insert DVD into Playstation 2
  2. When the “Enter Password” screen appears, press the select button
  3. Enter 7444 as the password to reset (7444 is the default by Sony)
  4. Next, enter a new password
  5. Confirm new password

That is all….So easy

parental control, password reset, playstation 2, ps2, sony

    Sorry, can’t get the ps2 to operate with the 7444 or 9999.

    i tried 7444 and it didnt work but i have the first model and 4777 is the universal code for it so if 7444 dosnt work try 4777

    I’m having the same problem as Frances above:

    I followed steps 1 thru 8 just fine. I have gone to the Setup icon and scrolled to the Custom Setup tab. In that tab is lists Pause Mode and Parental Control. I scroll down to Parental Control, but the text is grayed out, and I canâ??t select it in order to turn it off.

    Okay, a missing component I only figured out after a lot of searching and fiddling around–

    At Step 9, you have to STOP the movie, then press STOP one more time (to totally stop the movie and prevent Resume function) before the Parental Control setting will highlight and let you change anything.

    Excellent! Just what I needed to know. Make sure you stop the movie after entering the new code. Then you can hit select and turn the Parental Control OFF totally. Thanks Xaos Bob!

    I am not very handy with any game system, since I don’t play. My husband and kids play, but somehow I’m the one everyone turns to when there is a problem with anything electronic. So, I attempted to use the “7444” delete code today. It kept saying I had an incorrect code. Later, I realized I had pressed the ” X” button not “SELECT”. I put a DVD in to begin the process and it played!
