Played French movie on region-free player and American movies won't work

Ever since I played a French, region 2, movie on my DVD player all my American movies won't play and I get a 'no signal' message. I'm still able to play the French movie and the DVD player setup says it is region-free (region 0).

I played some bootleg movies. And now my Sony DVD player (model DVPSR500H). Will not play Retail DVD's. What can I do? I tryed unpluging it. And that did re-set it.


Your DVD player is now locked to the region of your bootleg movies! Sony only allows a certain number of changes before it becomes locked to the 'chosen' most played regio.

You need to make your Sony DVP SR500H 'Region Free'. Try the following:

1) Switch on player
2) Open DVD/CD tray compartment
3) Using the remote controller, enter 2812
4) Press 9 on key pad (to make it multi region) and then enter or Nav Ctr button
5) Press CLEAR to exit

Good luck.

Some american dvds don't work on our dvd player.


DVD players have a region code in them, and each dvd is encoded with a regon code. This is a copyright protection from the movie industry. Dvd's can be made without a region code, if so they will play on all machines. Some dvd players let you change the region code only a few times before you are locked out. Some dvd players will not allow you to change the region code at all.

New DVD won't play.


Check the region code on the DVD player. Your other DVD player may not be sensitive to region codes (i.e. plays all regions).

Unlock Code for DVD - DMR-EX75


Sometimes, hitting "1" on your remote when it's loading bypasses the region sector and allows the movie to be played without functionality of menus. If that doesn't work you can either play it on your computer or search for software that'll put the movie onto your harddrive taking region block off and with the right knowhow back it up onto a dvd blank that'll work. Though if you aren't good with computers, the best way is to buy a cheap $20-$50 dvd player that can be remote programmed to be region free or buy your machine from any Chinatown store.

DVD movies have region codes, and they typically only play on a player or DVD-ROM drive sold in the country where the DVD movie was sold.

The actual region code is in one byte on the DVD (digital versatile disc). The DVD player or drive has a region code in its firmware. Personal computer DVD-ROM players often have the code in the software or MPEG-2 decoder. The two codes must match for the player or drive to play the movie. The code is also printed on the back of a DVD package, superimposed on a small image of the globe.

DVD regional locking is used to control which DVD movies play in which countries or groups of countries. Movies are often released on different dates around the world. Region 1 has its own player that will only play Region 1 discs. Likewise, Region 2 players can only play Region 2 discs and not play any of Region 1's discs. The six codes are:
  1. United States and Canada
  2. Europe and Japan
  3. Southeast Asia
  4. Latin America and Australia
  5. Russia, rest of Asia and Africa
  6. China
please check the DVD region code again and what PLAYER u are using to play on PC / LAPTOP??

where did you buy the DVD player??

1. Make sure there is no disc in the player.
2. Turn power off and on again.
3. Open the tray.
4. On the remote, hit 9879 and then 0. This changes unit to Region 0, meaning it'll play all regions.
5. Hit OK on the remote.

Good Luck Guys!
