    Hi guys,

    As always when I am really stuck and cannot find the answer I go to the one source that never fails me, the HTF!

    I've had my Malata N996 for a couple of years now and have never used the parental lock. Never thought I would but now married and sharing DVDs with my little 6 year old I realise I might want to try it this feature on the player.

    It asks for a 4 digit code and I am pretty sure I never chose one. Figure default would be none or something simple but alas I cannot figure it out. I tried no code, 0000, 1111, 9999, 1234 and many others like it but to no avail.

    searched the Malata site, nothing. Checked online and found something on a forum about the Malata N960 default parental lock code being 3308 and tried that. nope.

    So here I am. Any idea what the default code is or how to reset the parental lock code?

    I'm pretty sure the default is/was 3308. Try 2580, but I really just pulled that one out of thin air.

    Short of that, a full reset is likely in order. I think the sequence is:

    SETUP
    Down key 5 times
    OK
    Down key 6 times
    Right key once
    OK
    SETUP

    Thanks for the reply John. Tried 3308 again AND tried 2580 but no go. Figured what the heck try full reset. Followed your instructions and that did not work either. It did not reset.

    At this point I will settle for either one. the lock code or how to reset the whole thing.

    Thanks

    Sorry, thought I would bump this in the hopes someone might see it and help... still can't access parent lock.
