Question about JVC TH-S3 System

4 Answers

JVC TH-S3 I have a JVC TH-S3 set up for UK Region 2. In order to play my large collection of Region 1 DVDs I went online and found a site offering to provide a method of making the machine Region neutral for a fee. What I got for my money was a soldered device and an incomprehensible 10th generation photocopy of some fairly generic instructions. I followed the instructions and the device did indeed allow me to play Region 1 disks. However, it also reprogrammed the player in other ways. Now it refuses all instructions from the remote except volume up and down. I e-mailed the original provider of the soldered device whose response was to become defensive and pretty unhelpful. How can I restore all the original functions of the remote and still keep the machine Region Free?

    Okay! It wasn't me. It was my son who went through this rigmarole when he gave it to me. He has no fear of such things ... sadly! Spare his further blushes and avoid him having to buy me a fresh machine. He thought he was being so smart.

    I appreciate the advice, but how do go about restoring it to its original condition? Isn't this done via the very remote which isn't working?

Have you tried removing the dice itself to see if this resolves the issue?

Those steps that your son have taken before to unlock this player altered some control of this player liek what is happening now, so in order for you to restore the control back you need to put the player back to its original condition but there's a big possibility that it will again stop playing region 1 dvd, but you can try to unlokc iot again by using some special code that wont alter the cotrols of the player....

    You will need to reverse all the changes that your son have done to restore it back to the original state when remote was working fine.....

The company service center JVC TH-S3 can help you as there are codes to make it region free.and if u have entered any wrong codes it may have locked the device.so company service center help is much required.

    as the company has all the necessary codes to make the device region free.they would also charge some negligible amount to give u that codes.
    thanks

  • mmechanics Nov 10, 2008

    service center is much advisable.as the wrong codes inserted several times makes the device corrupted.
    thanks.

I have a (jvc dvd digital cinema system th-s3). that will not play original dvds however it seems to play copies and cds just fine in fact all other functions work correctly. i have tried a lens cleaning...


I have the same system. I've had no trouble until a year ago, then the system got particular about when it wanted to play DVDs. I've also used lens cleaner to no avail. It plays some DVD's but plays all CD's and some copies. It has given me good service but cost me a lot of money. I hope there is a simple solution to this.

Panasonic SA-PT750 - changing Region restriction


The system region control is a function of the software on the DVD player. I don't believe there is a way to change the region settings on most DVD players. You can however convert your DVDs with software available online. One program is called "DVD Region & Css Free" and is available for a small price. That is perhaps one way you could approach your problem. Otherwise look for a player that will play discs from other regions.
