hello I will try to help you
let me first ask a few questions
I take it that this is for a wii console
is it an american wii?
actually...how can I tell. I bought it in the U.S. and it was in English as the default
also are you in america?
if you can find the serial number I can let you know if it is a US NTSC (american) console
also is it connected to the internet?
does it need to be?
ok lets try to reset the console
first I need you to set the time and date on the console
if you need assistance I can tell you where to find it
i did it
ok what is the current date right now in your time zone?
since it is after midnight where I am it could be different
June 26th 2012
Arizona US Time Zone
ok enter 26290 as your reset code and let me know if it works
it says parental controls have been disabled
does that mean it worked?
yes it means that it worked
where did you get the code?
now you can go into parental controls and enter a new code
the codes are randomly generated by your wii console confirmation code and the current date your system is set to
or is that why I paid $30? Because it's a simple thing that tech savvy peeps know and I don't?
Either way...you kick ass. Thanks.
not a problem
