Bought the system used, its asking for some sort of pin to access the net ( which i don't have nor can i ever have access to) .

How can i reset it back to factory settings?

I think you need to call Nintendo customer service for a master key. Or bring it back to where you bought it and tell them there are parental controls on it and you need a new one.

Yeah just call Nintendo, they'll tell you how to disable Parentel Controls.

I didn't buy it from a business or store, i bought it off some young kid who i saw was selling it for really cheap at some store, he left the store and i saw him in the parking lot with his mother and offered him $25 more.

Checked out the system and made sure everything worked fine, but since i am not really familiar with 3ds systems i didn't know anything about the pin key issue. I don't know the kid nor do i have contact information so there really isn't a way to get the pin.
