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.

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.

I LIVE IN ENGLAND CAN I play a dvd region 1 in my dvd player?


I don't think it would play on your DVD Player unless you DVD Player is "region-free" or "multi-region". Region 1 discs are intended for use with standard DVD players in North America (Canada and the USA). In most instances they can also be played on compatible "multi-region" DVD players (also known as "chipped" or "region-free" players).

Hope this helps.

Good luck.

Region codes required for DVD's from England.


Hi its better to make your DVD region free,please follow these steps:The internet has made it easier to purchase obscure foreign movies on DVD that aren't sold in this country. DVD's have region codes so they will only play on certain DVD players. For instance, US DVD's are region 1 while Europe and Japan are region 2. The only way you can play a foreign DVD then is to purchase a region free DVD player or make your DVD player region free.

  • Get a DVD player. If you purchases a DVD player, make sure you purchase a DVD player that people have had success in converting to region free. If you already own a player, you will need to note down the make and model of your player.Step 2
  • Look up the DVD hack for your player. There are several sites that feature DVD hacks. Two popular sites are DVD Exploder and Video Help. Simply look up the make and model of your DVD player and check to see if there is a hack.
