  1. Open Device Manager.
  2. Double-click DVD/CD-ROM drives, right-click the DVD drive for which you want to change region settings, and then click Properties.
  3. On the DVD Region tab, make the appropriate changes

cheers

Where can i buy charger and ac adapter or battery charger for Spectroniq PDV-70x


Power adapters for most electronic devices can usually be readily found on EBay for a reasonable price.

Here is a direct link to an AC power adapter for that model currently available for around $16 US:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/12V-AC-power-adapter-Spectroniq-PDV-70X-DVD-player-/250823360167?pt=Laptop_Batteries&hash=item3a663cbea7



And here is a link to a 12V Car power adapter for that model as well currently available for around $13 US:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Car-Adapter-Power-Cord-4-Spectroniq-PDV-70X-DVD-Player-/110734902621?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item19c850855d


Just use your mouse to click on the links, which are the underlined and blue highlighted text just above.

This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information and items at the website indicated.


Just search for the term: PDV-70x in the EBay search box and you will see many items available for various prices. Just find the one you want at the best price, order it online, and have it delivered right to you. Just be sure to consider and include the different shipping charges to your location which are listed just below the asking price of the items.


I hope this was helpful.


Good luck and take care.


Joe.

Hi, my DVD player was bought in Hong Kong, brought it back to England to use. recently, it is not reading discs properly, always say"no disc", no problem to read card though. I am wonder how and...


DVDs are encoded with a "Region Code" to allow studios to control release dates around the world. Hong Kong Region Code is 3, UK is 2. Your player will not play back Region 2 DVDs that you are purchasing or renting in UK. It will work fine with Region Code 3 DVDs I would bet.

Sorry to deliver the bad news.

You need to unlock the player before it will play discs from other regions. UK has region 2 discs while the US has region 1.

Search on Google for your DVD model and unlock code.
Dial in the code using your remote and you should then be able to play any region discs from around the world.

The 4:3 is an aspect ratio the ratio of horizontal to vertical size and the non-HDTV standard; the latter is 16:9.
The PAL and NTSC abbreviations refer to the picture and synchronization standards whereby NTSC is the American standard and the PALs are European. The setting "sp-raw" refers to an unprocessed video format that requires further processing before it can be viewed.
If the disk you have was made for the American market, you should be set to NTSC and the aspect ratio to whatever the disk is specified, most recent disks will be made to conform to HD specifications, but may also  be viewed in "letterbox" form which is a shrunken 16:9 box with pronounced edges around it.

Got dvd from New Zealand and it is a pal programme and I cannot get it to play in UK.


Hello,
The reason your dvd player may not be working is that each dvd player has a region code that is designed to only work with dvds in that specific region to prevent pirated movies from being played. Here are the region codes:
  1. United States and Canada
  2. Europe and Japan
  3. Southeast Asia
  4. Latin America and Australia
  5. Russia, rest of Asia and Africa
  6. China
The code should be displayed with a sticker some where on the back of you dvd player that looks like a "globe with a number in it". You will have to visit the the manufacturers website of the dvd player to find out how to change or update the region code because the information is stored on a ROM chip inside the dvd player and is referred to as firmware, this same code is also imprinted on the dvds sold in your country and the code must match that of your dvds in order for it to play. So what you need to do is go to what company manufactured the dvd player example:Toshiba, Panasonic, etc and check the site to see if they allow you to be able to reset the region code to your countries setting. Hope this helps

The PET702 will be a region 5 machine, whereas the UK DVDs are region 2.

DVD players from a particular region are designed to play only DVDs from the same region, due to copyright and distribution rights in each country or region.

However the PET702 can have the region protection removed by making it multi-region:

Switch on the PET702 and Open the tray.

Press SETUP button on the remote control, which will bring up the menu.

Highlight "PREFERENCES" and press OK.

Press [2], [5], [2], [3], [1], [5], [LEFT], [DOWN]

The screen will show: "Region Code: 2"
Press [1-6] to manually set the region OR [0] for multi-region.
coolsmiley.gif
Press [SETUP] to exit winksmiley.gif

You will now be able to play DVDs from anywhere in the world.

This is particularly useful, because region 1 DVDs from the US often come out when the movies are still in the cinemas over here. Region 1 DVDs can be bought perfectly legally by mail order or from the internet.
