Wii - How to reset the Parental Control password?



Issue


I recently bought a Wii console. I tried to connect the Wii to the internet, but when I wanted to return the connection parameters, it asked me for a secret code. I can't find it anywhere, and I've never come up with this code myself. What can I do?

Solution


It's very simple. If you forgot your password and no longer know the secret answer, Wii gives you a number which you will have to enter on the release site in Forget Password.
You will then get the general code of deactivation which it is likely will vary depending on the number.
