Trouble playing DVD's

I recently purchased a set of DVD's which are region 2, I live in NZ which is region 4. When I tried playing them the screen became heavily pixelated and seemed to be trying to play two chapters at the same time. The worst of the problem is that now all other DVD's, region 4, are also doing the same even tho' they played ok before.

    Kevin, yes I did change the region with no luck. Trouble is now that some of my region 4 DVD's wont play either. Also did a backup copy using Any DVD which makes the DVD region free, and that works in my DVD player but not the laptop.

  • Vonriken Oct 07, 2008

    Yes I did change the region back. The dvd drive is a Phillips DVD-RAM SDVD8821.
    This allows only 3 changes before becoming locked in ,so I don't want to experiment too much just in case I end up wit a dedicated region 2.
    Is it possible that the drive or the software is recognizing the discs I attempted to play, and is now refusing them. I ask this as Now i have changed back to region 4 It won't play a couple of region 4 discs I tried when it had changed to region 2. I might also add that when I tried to play the region free discs
    the damned drive changed itself to region 1. Puzzling eh.


  • Vonriken Oct 07, 2008

    As previously stated none of the region free discs work in this laptop.
    Neither will the region 2 even when I changed the region to 2.
    And now some of my region 4 which I used to see if there was a problem with the drive
    will also not work. All other discs work OK.

Did you try to change the region to region 2 to play the new dvds?

    Hmmm..Just to confirm, did you change the region back? This may be focused on your dvd drive, it may not like the discs...

  • Kevin Croissant Oct 07, 2008

    will the region free discs all work? you may be best off jsut making copies off all the discs and making them region free.

How do I change the zone on my Soniq E32W13D-AU?


You should have got a red card with the AU and NZ customer support numbers on it. If you phone them, they will tell you how to unblock the player to make it region free.

On the Soniq QV191LC TV and DVD player, you follow these steps. It may work for your model but if it doesn't, try the support line.

1. Switch on
2. Switch to DVD mode (use Source button on remote)
3. Select DVD setup menu (press DVD button on remote)
4. Select Preferences page (use > key on remote)
5. Press '0' key 4 times on remote: the Region Code menu will appear
6. Use up and down on remote to select region (0 of course)
7. Press exit button.

You should now be region free.

Try these numbers:
AU 1300 765 663 / (61) 3 9543 5111
NZ (64) 9 2667512

If it's any help, you can download the manual here:

Good luck!

I am from New Zealand . I recently played a DVD disc from the U.S. which is region 1. I had to change the region setting on the bluray drive to play it. I tried to play a region 4 disc on it, and after...


Ask the people you purchased the bluray drive to give you instruction on how to reset (usually is about 5 times and then it gets stuck in the last region used, the Blu-ray region is set in the playback software, not the drive.). You may also want to try re-install the software, which resets it. Good luck.

My samsung bd-c7500 dont play other dvd region than 3..i would like to unlock the dvd region to multi-region..how can i do that?


hi,
try the following

As I live in Kazakhstan my BD-C7500 is locked to DVD region 5. Just use the codes at the end of this tutorial for your own DVD region.

1. Ensure that there is no disk in the tray.

2. Switch the player on.

3. Wait until the main menu page appears and the player stops doing anything.

4. Press the REPEAT button - just above the TV channel selector at the bottom right of the controller - and enter 5 6 7 3 2 on the number pad.


5. The region code "3" should appear at the top left corner of the screen.

6. Quickly enter a "9" to make the player region free. (Just try pressing 9 on the remote controller until you see 9 appear in the upper left corner of your TV screen.)

7. Open and close the disc tray. Power down and power up again.

13. Play a foreign DVD to verify the change.

For people from other parts of the world, all region codes are as follows

1 - 2 9 3 3 4
2 - 5 7 5 3 8
3 - 5 6 7 3 2
4 - 7 6 8 8 4
5 - 5 3 8 1 4
ok

Not reading the disc


need a bit more info - are you playing a movie or running software installation?

If you need to change the drive region then do the following


1. Power on your DVD Player without a disc in the drawer.
- Wait for the "Loading" screen to finish and then the display reads "no disc".
Check which region your reader was bought in. (Large Number label is located on the rear of the Player. Region 1 to 6)
-on the remote control
2. Press the "Repeat"button. The "no disc" label on the screen will disapear.
3. According to the region your player was bought in, choose from the following button sequences.
- region 1, press buttons 2, 9, 3, 3, 4
- region 2, press buttons 5, 7, 5, 3, 8
- region 3, press buttons 5, 6, 7, 3, 2
- region 4, press buttons 7, 6, 8, 8, 4
- region 5, press buttons 5, 3, 8, 1, 4
- region 6, press buttons 2, 4, 4, 6, 2
4. The number in the top left corner of the screen shows you the current region. EG "1" for the US/Canada, "4" for Australia/NZ.....etc.
5. Now enter the new number for the region you require (1 to 6)...or simply enter 9 for "Multi-region". The number in the left hand corner of the screen will change to the number you enetered. Wait for the number to dispear. It will take around 15 seconds.
6. Now power off the DVD player with the button on the front of the unit. Now each time the unit is turned on it will be in the new region...or muti-region if region 9 was chosen.
7. If you wish to change the region again...or back to its original, go through the exact same sequence until step 5. Then you enter the different region number.
If you are unsuccesfull with the above code then it may be worth trying one of the resources below.

Hi there, have a Samsung DVDV6800 purchased in July that wont play all region discs. Can you tell me how to put in the codes for multi zones?


1. Power on your player with no disc in the tray. Wait for message "No Disc" in the top left hand corner of your screen.
2. Press and hold the Repeat button on your remote control for approximately 5 seconds.
3. Enter the code below. (Note that you must know what Region your player is currently set to in order to know which code is appropriate.)
for Region 1 use 2, 9, 3, 3 and 4
for Region 2 use 3, 8, 7, 6 and 7
for Region 3 use 5, 6, 7, 3 and 2
for Region 4 use 7, 6, 8, 8 and 4
for Region 5 use 5, 3, 8, 1 and 4
for Region 6 use 2, 4, 4, 6 and 2
4. The message "No Disc" will now be replaced with the default region number of your player. For example, Australian and N.Z players will display a small "4".
5. Press "9" for multi-region.
6. Open tray and insert your title.
7. Close tray.

The player will continue to hold the changes you have made. If this does work for you the first time, keep repeating steps 2&3 until the players default region number appears. The amount of time holding the repeat button does seem critical.
