1) Turn the DVDR3590H on, with no DVD in the drive
2) press HOME, so the browser appears
3) press PLAY/PAUSE. The display on the machine should say "BROWSER"
4) Slowly enter the following code: 159121212005255 (the numbers should appear on the display)
5) press PLAY/PAUSE.
6) Turn the player off

You might have to try it several times before the numbers will appear in the display panel. Don't enter the numbers too slowly either.

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.

Unlock sony DVP-FX720


The problem may be you are trying to play DVDs from a specific region (Europe) and the player is set for another region. Region code errors will show up as "no Play" or 'region" Check the manual to see how to set the player to Region 0. A region machine will play any DVD. Sometimes the setting is on the menu - usually in the set-up screen under "region." I have re-set all my Phillips players to become Region Free through the menu.

DVDs are region coded. This means that they will only play on a DVD player from the region the DVD was produced to be watched in. For example, an Australian DVD is Region 4. It will only play on a Region 4 player. If you try to play it on a player that is set for a different region, it will probably not play. One way around this is to get hold of a multi region player. These are widely available. Alternatively, you should be able to watch the DVD on your computer, although you may need some region free software if your computer's dvd player has been locked. Usually computer DVD players will allow you to play DVDs from any region a few times and then they will lock to a particular Region Code. If you are in North America, you will need a PAL player. The only other thing you may be able to do is to unlock your existing player to convert it to region free. Many DVD players can be unlocked but you would need to find the unlock information for your paticular player. Hope this helps....

check the menu settings or (setup) on the dvr 4000 to see if it has options to enable or disable parental lock or to change region settings to region 1.

also the dvds you made are they +r or -r on what brand dvd record disc on dvd-r this may solve the problem but use a quality brand disc like memorex dvd-r it is compatible with many players and recorders also make sure the disc you made on the recorder were finalized.

SAMSUNG HR733 DVD RECORDER WILL NOT PLAY ANY REGION DISCS AT ALL


On page 45 of the user manual it says this:

Both the HDD & DVD RECORDER and the discs are coded
by region. These regional codes must match in order for the
disc to play. If the codes do not match, the disc will not play.
The Region Number for this HDD & DVD RECORDER is
described on the rear panel of the HDD & DVD RECORDER

If you changed the region codes on your player it will not work. They should be set back to 1 or whatever your model says on the back of the unit.

If this unit was purchased outside the United States, it may not work in the United States.

Here is a copy of the manual if you need it:
