    Wii Parental Controls Password Reset / Wii PIN Number Reset

    Wii Parental Controls Password Reset / Wii PIN Number Reset

    There is another application that will unlock/reset parental controls of the Wii/3DS/DSi here - http://www.hacksden.com/showthread.p....2-3DS-DSi-Wii

    This guide will reset the Wii Parental Controls if you forgot the pin number or bought a used Wii and didn't receive a pin number. The old PIN will not be revealed.
    1. Access the Wii settings of the Wii console, go to page 2 and select the "Parental Controls" tab, then press "Yes".
    2. You will be prompted for a PIN number, select "I forgot".
    3. Then you will be prompted for a secret question, select "I forgot".
    4. You will then see the following screen.


    5. An 8 digit confirmation number will appear, write it down.
    6. Go to this site HERE, enter the confirmation number from your Wii, make sure the date is correct, get the master pin number.
    7. Now enter the master PIN Number, this must be entered on the same day you acquired the 8 digit confirmation number.
    8. Parental Controls should now be disabled. If you want to enable Parental Controls, a new PIN number and secret question are required.

    Or maybe his parents came to visit and they decided he couldn't be trusted with full access.

    All though both thoughts are well justified, this was a repair that I did on a Wii I bought sometime back.

    Interesting. I'll see if it works on my 3DS later.

    I tried 3DS. No luck. Although I did hear once that there is another website for the 3DS parental controls.

    Looks like the only way is the Customer Support for the 3DS...
