My Samsung smart tv & my dvd/bluray player recorder I bought at same time. Haven't had blurays til now & wont play at all. Rental ones did now I've bought my own & they don't play!Not tech minded.HELP


Each DVD player is assigned a code for the region in which it's sold. For example USA/Canada are Region 1 players. DVD players will refuse to play discs not coded for its specific region. In effect, this means that a DVD purchased in one country is normally unreadable on a DVD player bought in another region.

If your rental DVDs work in the player then there is nothing wrong with your DVD player. If you have purchased DVDs that do not work the problem is with the DVDs you have, not with the DVD player.

REGION 1,DVD


Region 1 dvds are usually USA/Canada dvds and will play on any dvd purchased in those countries. You didn't state your location so I don't know where you are. Google your location for dvd region to make sure.

Bought a dvd from England.JVC dvd player will not play dvd.it is on stop and will not play.


American DVD players will not play European DVDs because they use different region codes, you can normally play them on computers, but DVD players are normally coded for only one region.

Cannot find an unlocking code for my new dvd player: Toshiba XDE600KB. 40% of my dvd collection is from region 1, when my husband was in Canada. We are in England (region 2) & none of them will play.


Kelly - If you have the EU version the following will work if they haven't upgraded the firmware so it won't work. worth a try. I couldn't tell for sure from your post exactly which wouldn't play, the region 1s or 2s.
  • turn on dvd player
  • open tray
  • press "35147199" on remote
  • turn off dvd player
  • turn dvd player back on & you should have an open region player

If it's the US version there is no known Region Hack (At least that I could find).


Good Luck and Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Unable to play region 2 DVDs


There are sites with firmware that you burn to a disc to unlock the DVD player. Do a google search to find one.
