3DS 3DS XL Parental Control PIN Removal
Resetting a parental control lock on a 3DS or 3DS XL console is a fairly easy task, but there a few things that you have to know first.
The first thing you need to do is go to the "System Settings" on your console and go to "Other Settings" then tap on "Date and Time".
Make sure that the date matches today's date exactly. If it does not then resetting the Parental Control password will not work.
After you are sure that the time and date are correct you need to go back to the "System Settings" main screen. Once there tap on "Parental Controls".
After you get to the "Parental Controls" screen tap on the bottom button that says "Forgot PIN".
You will see a screen asking you for the answer to your secret question. I'm assuming you don't know it since you are reading this so next you will want to tap on "I Forgot". If you are asked to send and email click "Cancel"
You will next see a screen that says "Obtaining Master Key". The bottom screen will show the inquiry number. You need to either keep this screen open or write the number down. You will need to enter it in the next few steps.
Go to Nintendo's Parental Controls reset webpage
Enter your information, including the inquiry number that you wrote down a minute ago. You will need to pay .50 cents to get the master key to imput on the next screen.
You will get an email from Nintendo containing the master key for your console. You will input this on the next screen.
Press OK and put in the number that was emailed to you by Nintendo.
