Hi,

Here are the steps in unlocking the regions for your DVD :

1. Switch on the player
2; Pop open the CD compartment
3. Enter the following code (using the remote): 2812
4. Highlight the region
5. Change to 9 (for Multi-region) using the 'Enter' button
6. Hit 'Clear' to exit
7. Pop in a DVD and enjoy!

Best Regards,

Cant play a region 1 dvd


The DVD and *and* the DVD player both have a region code embedded in each. A map of the regions used appears below:

steve_con_2.gif

Regions 0, 7, 8 & 9 do not appear as they represent "No Region Coding" "Unused" "Cruise Lines" and "Region Free" respectively.

A DVD player will only play a matching region code DVD, or the player OR DVD have one (or more) 0, 7, 8, or 9 region codes imbedded. You'll not be able to change the DVD code, but you *might* be able to change the region code of your player. Computer DVD players can sometimes be flashed to a new region more readily than the entertainment system DVD players, but it relies solely on the manufacturer and model of the player. Some require file be downloaded and run, while others require a DVD or CD be created and played with a specific file saved on it. Here's a link to results that discuss how to change the region code for DVD players. You'll need to know at the very least the manufacturer and model number of you player to begin.

I hope this helps and good luck! If you found this helpful, please rate my reply 4 "thumbs up". Thanks!

The DVD player will not play anything. It says invalid region.


Then you have a DVD player that is either not designed to be sold in your region or DVD's that are for a specific region and not for the country you reside in. If you want to be able to play any video buy a multi region DVD player, not a locked to a region one! You may be able to find an unlock code, but oif its an unknown brand you're stuck!

DVD's are made in different region codes as they are intended to be played on specific types of DVD players. As far as I am aware there is no way to change the region code of a DVD.

However, your DVD player maybe able to bypass the region code through a type of "hack"; you might search online for your specific DVD player.

A DVD drive on your computer may also be able to play the DVD although you may need to further research specific software players. You should be able to find some freeware that would enable you to play your DVD on your computer assuming your drive can read DVD's.

Another option is to buy a region-free (also known as an all-region) DVD player. Although they are a bit more expensive than a regular DVD player, region-free means you never have to worry about software fixes or trying to reconfigure your current DVD player. Online sellers abound the most well known probably including Amazon and YesAsia (a site that specializes to selling Asian merchandise overseas).

Hope this helps, I was a little vague in places.
Basically you can't change the DVD so much as the DVD player.

I have brought some DVDs and my TV DVD player will not play them


You won't be able to do this unless your DVD player specifically says it is a multi-region player. DvVD movies that are encoded in a different region use different encoding methods like PAL instead of NTSC.

Unable to play a DVD movie


Most probably the TV system is not compatible.
This VCR/DVD uses NTSC formate. Is the DVD in PAL formate. Also the Region code can be different. This DVD palys DVD-Disks with regional code 1 or All.
