thank you very much for your question. My name is***** and I will try to help you as quick possible. Please sit back for a moment while I prepare your answer.
Thanks for your patience and best regards,
Thanks for your patience. Please first go to "Console Settings" -> "System Info", then try one of the following key sequences (one of the should reset your Xbox settings and hence also remove that annoying password!):
Press Left Trigger, Right Trigger, X, Y, Left Bumper, Right Bumper, XX, UP, Down
If this does not work, please try these (LT = Left Trigger, RT = Right Trigger, LB = Left Bumper, RB = Right Bumper)
LT RT X Y LB RB DOWN RIGHT Y X
LT RT X Y LB RB DOWN DOWN DOWN DOWN
LT RT X Y LB RB Y Y X X
If none of the above does work, please just reply again and I will provide more codes to try, as it depends on the console version you have. Asking me again, involves no additional costs for you, you can reply as often as you want until I was able to solve your problem to your satisfaction. If I already was able to help you, I would very happy about a positive rating (3 to 5 stars), because only then I get paid by JustAnswer with a part of your already accomplished payment, which mediated your question to me as an independent expert.
Thank you very much and best regards,
I will look up some more sequences for you, give me a few minutes please.
LT RT X Y LB RB DOWN DOWN DOWN X
If it works, it should ask you to if you want to "reset system settings". In which case you should chose "yes". But you also must make sure that you are in the "System Info" menu when entering these codes. Are you?
The menu where you enter them must look like this:
Some more codes to try:
LT RT X Y LB RB LEFT LEFT DOWN XLT RT X Y LB RB RIGHT RIGHT DOWN XLT T X Y LB RB X X DOWN ALT RT X Y LB RB X DOWN A YLT RT X Y LB RB X X X RIGHTLT RT X Y LB RB X X Y ALT RT X Y LB RB DOWN UP UP XLT RT X Y LB RB DOWN UP DOWN UPLT RT X Y LB RB DOWN DOWN UP UPLT RT X Y LB RB LEFT X Y ALT RT X Y LB RB RIGHT LEFT X XLT RT X Y LB RB RIGHT X X XLT RT X Y LB RB RIGHT X X ALT RT X Y LB RB RIGHT X Y ALT RT X Y LB RB DOWN Y Y ALT RT X Y LB RB A RIGHT X LEFTLT RT X Y LB RB DOWN DOWN X DOWNLT RT X Y LB RB DOWN DOWN X XLT RT X Y LB RB DOWN X DOWN DOWNLT RT X Y LB RB DOWN DOWN DOWN ALT RT X Y LB RB DOWN UP LEFT XLT RT X Y LB RB X X DOWN ALT RT X Y LB RB RIGHT X DOWN X
It´s annoying indeed, I had this myself on my XBOX 360. Try all codes carefully, if none of them works, let me know again, I will look for more for you.
Yup, patience is required, I know this sucks, have tried for like an hour on mine too!
In any case, you must make absolutely sure that you are in the "System Info" menu when entering these codes, otherwise it will definitely not work at all. And if the code was right, it will ask you if you want to reset system settings. If it just goes back to the menu, you have to go to "System Info" and try again.

It would also be good to know your Dashboard version (shown in the System Info Menu). Then I can look for more specific codes.
P.S.: I am out for dinner for about 25 minutes and can only reply then again. Thank you for understanding.
How does it look Darren?
Hehe yes, I know. Can you please look into what Dashboard version you have? Best take a photo of the "System Info" page and attach it here. Then we can look further into this.
OK, thanks, ***** ***** that up. Give me a few minutes please....
OK, found it, for your dashbaord version it must be:
LT, RT, X, Y, LB, RB, Left, Right, Left, A
LT, RT, X, Y, LB, RB, Left, Right, A
And some more to try for that Dashboard version:
LT, RT, X,Y,LB, RB, Up (on d-pad) , Y, Y, X
LT, RT, X, Y, LB, RB, (directional pad: left, left,down) X
LT, RT, X, Y, LB, RB, down, up, up, X
LT, RT, X, Y, LB, RB, Y, (on Pad) Down, Right, Up
Microsoft makes it difficult for it´s users as usually ! :-)
Eager to know if that worked, otherwise, you´ll have to call up Microsoft for the code (free). Just let me know. And of course, if you can leave me a positive rating (3 to 5 stars), I´d be more than happy, because only then JustAnswer pays my work at all. We can still communicate afterwards of course, I will not leave you in the dark:)
Ha! I am so happy too, so much efforts for you with all these keys, but worth it! And great to hear the son is happy again too. No problem, if anything else or he locks it up again, just message me:) I am wondering, which one worked for you, do you remember?
Oh sorry, you said it, the FIRST one. All right!
