Used Nintendo Switch locked parental controls are always on



Well, I learned a lesson about video game consoles yesterday, and it’s definitely worth sharing with my fellow parents. My son Chase asked for a SWITCH for a while now, and I’ve cracked and bought him one at Evansville Toys & Games.

I researched Nintendo consoles and tried to find where I could get the best price. I was heading to a big box store until I checked out Evansville Toys and Games Facebook Page. Our friend Daniel Barritt had one in stock at a great price, so I’m really glad I thought about buying local!

Just like any Liberty story, this one doesn’t end in drama. I was delighted to set up the SWITCH before Chase came home, and it would have happened IF I could have guessed the previous owner’s 4-digit code, or just called the customer service line before going over an hour of trying to figure it out. In fact, the parental controls had locked the SWITCH, preventing me from doing a full reset. I filled out the form online, but their site thought my zip code was wrong … OK. So I asked my husband if he could call and get it fixed because it was good after my nap. In 3 minutes, it was like new – Lesson learned!

What have we learned here? If you are planning to sell a digital device, you really need to reset it completely. Usually there is an option to revert to factory settings. If you don’t know how, look for tutorials on Youtube. This is literally how I understood it!
