    Not sure I understand your comment - I am asking to be able to play all regions on my US DVD player.

  • njkasia Oct 16, 2008

    yes, my dvd player currently only plays US DVDs. I would like to be able to play region 2/UK DVDs (amongst others) as well as DVDs that have been burned from computer files. My family has sent me some DVD videos that I cannot play on my player.

Hello, I realize this is a bit late to get back to you on your request for help.

You may be way past the need for this. But, changing the region you live in on a DVD Player so you can play new DVDs or view a friends DVD is not a hack. The international copyright laws recognize you or your friend have already paid for the right to view these anytime, anywhere you want to do so.

The problem with a Sony DVD player in the modern era is that they will not play PAL encoded DVDs. PAL is an encoding spec. used in the EU and mostly anywhere outside the US.

You could take your DVD player to an authorized service center in the EU and tell them you want your PAL decoder enabled and Sony has to grant you this right. Its actually addressed as "Unlocking the Region Code." Sony has told all authorized repair center to comply with this request.

What it breaks down to is this in the law, International and US: When you purchase a Movie DVD yoiu have purchased the right to view the disc for as long as you want to until the DVD is no longer playable and even then you could get a replacement. No outside agency, Sony in this case, has the right to inhibit your rights.

Hope this helps empower your understanding of copyright laws.

    Hi,

    Even though you have benefited from a newer Sony with no Region Lock out, the primary problem is that these Sony DVD players sold in the US will only play US DVDs. To get it to work in an EU region requires enabling PAL playback. As I understand it, Sony makes their players with both NTSC and PAL decoders but the product destined for US sales only has NTSC activated. Those destined for sale in the EU have PAL activated.

    You should be able to take this to an authorized Sony repair center and ask them if they could enable the PAL decoder.

    Regarding your discs you burn at home, you just need to transcode the file to a PAL frame rate. A very good transcoder that I use is MediaCoder and can be found athttp://mediacoder.sourceforge.net.

    This software is Open Source and therefor is free of charge. Nero BurningROM will also transcode on the fly. When you setup to burn a disc and have brought the source title into the left window pane, instruct Nero to make the new file burned to a disc PAL encoded.

    Regards,
    Worldvet

    yes..that makes sense..you mean geographic regions?

    well..that is not surprising, with different standards and intellectual property issues. the only way to do this is to hack the system, and our TOS do not allow for that..

    thanks for using fixya

Hi, I want to unlock my DVD player!! Can you help me ?


Hello

Find the unlock code for your Sony DVD player model. The DVD Demystifiziert and Video Help websites both provide unlock codes for Sony players that can be unlocked and made region-free. To view the code for your DVD player, click on the model of your DVD player in the Sony hack list on the website.

Perform the tasks included in the unlock code. For most Sony models that can be unlocked, the unlock code is not as simple as pressing a few buttons. You may need to open the tray on the player or power the unit on and off multiple times as part of the hack.

Turn the unit off and then on again after you have entered your unlock code, even if the code doesn't include this step. Once you power the unit back on, it should be region-free and should be able to read any DVD that you insert in the tray.

NOTE: Not all Sony players can be unlocked to be region-free. According to the DVD Demystifiziert page, no unlock codes are available for Sony models DVP-NC85H, DVX-11A, SLV-D980P and SLV-D500P.

Keep in mind that unlocking a Sony DVD player almost always voids the unit's warranty.
