    I just bought a wii u from my friend, the serial on the console and in the system environment match, but on the parental pin reset page, the code does not work. Any ideas as to why? Thanks!

    Oh, I should also note that he hasn't used this thing in over a year, and doesn't know what the PIN is.

    Well, the thing is that they're closed for now, and I was just trying to use the site, which sees it as invalid. Will calling Nintendo tomorrow morning somehow make the code valid?

    Yeah I have, and he's told me a few that he might have set, also, the code starts with GW for a Basic NA WiiU, correct? Everything past that are numbers as well?
