Lock (Parental Control) Settings
Some movies contain scenes that may not be suitable for children to view. Many of these discs contain parental control information that applies to the complete disc or to certain scenes on the disc. Movies and scenes are rated from 1 to 8, depending on the area. DVD video discs may or may not respond to the parental control setting if the Area code of the disc is set wrongly.
