    Urgent PS3 Help !

    Messing around with the parental controls, and stupidly forgot the password when I went back to the PS3 Today ! Any chance I could get rid of them somehow ? Was thinking to restore the PS3 to factory defaults but then I could lost everything on the PS3 (Game Saves, Pics, Music). Rep is waiting !

    Cheers

    If you select (Settings) > (System Settings) > [Restore Default Settings], you can reset the password to [0000]. Note that all other settings will also be restored to their default values.

    hope that works not tried it myself, i dont think it will remove game saves but only 1 way to find out. on the psp i have restored to default and it never wiped anyting else out i saved so i bet the ps3 is the same.
