ps2 question, need help quick!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So i made my admin password to watch DVDs about 2 years ago, which is when I received my PS2 Slim Edition. I rarely ended up playing games and watching movies, and eventually stopped using the console all together. Here I am now, about to sell my PS2 on eBay in 2 hours and 13 minutes. I plug it all in, to make sure everything is working, again, and when i pop in a DVD I completely forget my password I set so long ago.

Now for my question:

Is there absolutely any way to go about fixing/resetting my admin password?

rep+ for very quick responses.

But if you preform a Hard or factory reset, which is done by either a paperclip hole or by the Admin page, that will definiately reset your settings. (But is useful if you forget your Admin password, or made one too many changes in the router to make it unstable.)

I don't know where or how the "paperclip" reset works, but it is at least a start. Sorry I don't know/can't find more.

The Quick Method to Reset Parental Control

If you do not know the Parental Control password on your PS2, try the known defaults of 1111 and 7444.
More on the link below to reset it.

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.
