I had played DVDs before on my PS-2 before without any issues and I just rented out a DVD and I started playing it...But it will not play because its asking for Parental Control Password....This is very strange because I had tried playing DVDs before without any issues like I said...
Its asking me for a password but I dont know it...I dont know why this particular DVD which I rented will not play unless I have the Parental control password....

Where did you rent the DVD from and is the PS2 new or did you buy it used?
If you bought the PS2 used then perhaps a rating control was put on by the last owner and you would have to contact them to get the release code. Or perhaps the DVD that you rented is a pirated copy, although I doubt that if you rented it from a reputable place.

I'm bored so I looked up how to break the Parental Lock code on the internet -
Here is how it's done.
Here is the procedure to reset the parental lock code:
1. Bring up a screen where the unit asks you to enter in the parental code. You can either insert a restricted disc, or enter the DVD setup menu and go to "parental control" under custom setup.
2. When the screen asks for the code, press the SELECT button, then enter in the code "7444".
3. The level adjustment under Parental Control dictates the strictness of the player. The lower the value, the more strict it will be. Either increase the value to lower the restriction, or disable the lock entirely by setting it to "off".
4. Once you have made your adjustments, be sure that the DVD tray is empty, and press the RESET button on the front of the Playstation 2. It is imperative the tray is clear of any DVD or game for the unit to save your settings.
