OT - Help with free DVD player / parental control

My brother gave me a DVD player. That's right, I'm BLASTING into the 90's!! Anyway, it seems to be an EL CHEAPO DVD player. It's a GVG brand, model DV-910. Some how the parental control has been engaged, and it is password protected. Of course, NOBODY knows what the password is, and there isn't an OBVIOUS way to turn it off.

I've done a search, and the WEB has hardly heard of GVG. I've sent them an email, but I'm not holding out much hope of it coming up with anything.

It seems to play fine, but it won't allow me to watch anything "R" rated. So unless I wanna live in a DISNEY world, I need to get this fixed. I plan on beating up my local TV repair guy, but I figured with all the "wizards" we have on here, I might stand a chance to get an answer.

.... and it doesn't cost a thing ......

Thanks in advance.

Re: OT - Help with free DVD player / parental control

I've got a cheapo DVD player too, but its a different brand. I've got the same problem but I was able to figure out the password. Usually the pre-programmed password is something pretty simple. Mine is 99999. Try something along those lines, or 12345. I think you get the point. Play around for a bit and good luck.
