Re: 'CANNOT PLAY' message

I was able to fix mine by opening the player with the DVD still inside and then I manually spun the DVD and the motor kicked in! After 2 days my DVD player is now working again! Thanks to everyone else that posted. It gave me the idea to try this.

For this player, the disk is prone to slide out of its place. It may have slid around as the player was reading it and gave the error.

Unplug the unit overnight or 24 hours and see if that resets the microprocessor. if it dosent work then theres a mechanical problem and your gonna need to take the unit into a repairt shop unless you can take it apart first and see if theres something blocking the disc. Good luck

SOURCE: need unlock code.

I found this region hack here Sony DVP-NS575P region code , check it out:

The following guide describes how I managed to make my Sony DVP-NS705V DVD player multi-region.

There are no guarantees that you will be able to do the same. Be aware that you will probably void any warranty you have and possibly even break the player.

Put shortly, you proceed at your own risk.

First of all, the Sony DVP-NS705V can be made multi-region simply by applying appropriate service codes, you do not need to install a so called "mod chip".

This supposedly applies to the entire NS-series of Sony DVD players. There are some encouraging reports out there supporting this, but nothing has been verified by me. Again, if you choose to apply this guide to any DVD player, you do so at your own risk.

If you do find that this procedure works on another model, please drop me a line at and let me know. Include the exact model number and original region of your player.

Update: Some users have reported success on the following players:

DVP-F21 (special thanks to Garry Self for this one)
DVP-PQ1 (thanks go to Michael Joy for this one)
RDR-GX3 (thanks to Andreas Norman)
RDR-GX7 (thanks to Daniel Tapie)

Please note that not all players behave exactly like the NS705. For example, some players do not display "success" when hacked.

Thanks to all who have contributed.

The infrared service codes required to make the update are available on the Internet. Unfortunately, not many people have an appropriate device to enter the codes into. You basically need a programmable remote (Philips Pronto, One-For-All) or a PDA (Palm, iPAQ) with suitable software.

This guide shows you how to make the update with a regular PC equipped with an IRDA port.

The procedure

1. Download the winsamp -package from Blank Frank's site.

This innovative piece of software allows you to send standard home electronics IR signals using a PC IRDA port.

2. Extract the package onto a bootable DOS floppy disk.

3. Download this IR code

file and place it in the same directory as the package above.

This file holds the five necessary IR codes converted to the format used by Blank Frank's winsamp.exe. Please do not bother Frank with questions concerning this particular procedure.

4. Boot up your PC from the floppy disk and run winsamp.exe.

If your IRDA port doesn't appear as COM2 you may override this by using an appropriate command line switch. For example, use COM1 by running 'winsamp C1'.

5. Press the 'r' key to load up the codes into winsamp.

6. Make sure your DVD player is in standby mode and your IRDA port is within range.

7. Run the IR codes from 1 to 5 by pressing Enter on each corresponding button.

8. Your DVD player should start up and display the text "SUCCESS".

9. Repeat step 7. Your player should return to standby mode.

10.Your player is now multi-region."

I am not able to play pirated dvd in my sony ns575p dvp

The reputed models will not play these being pirated versions and so it is best to choose originals to be played in your Sony player.
Unfortunately most local models will play these and so must not be taken as fault in the player.

Cd/dvd player only able to play dvd's

Get a hold of your manufacturer and verify the warranty on your cd/dvd player. I do know that if the cd's are not finalized then cd/dvd players will not be able to read them. If under warranty your manufacturer can replace it or troubleshoot the problem with you over the phone.

Can a Sony DVP NS575P play divx format? If so how does one set it up to do so?

I do not think so, it needs the divx software.  Units that can play divx have it listed on the box and in the manual.
