Question about Home Theater Systems

1 Answer

Wrong region Hi...I just received a dvd I had purchased from the UK, when I tried to play it, my dvd player said wrong region..The model is a Philips HTS 3544 home theatre system, I've never seen the player do this before. On the case of the DVD is a globe with the number 2 in it...Does this mean the DVD is for region 2? If someone could help me I'd really appreciate it...Thanks

Hi , The reason for the error message is because your DVD player is set to one specific zone. The below procesure will open the DVD player to play all zones.
TURN ON THE PLAYER
PRESS OPEN/CLOSE
USING REMOTE PRESS STOP-7-3-4-4-6-6
YOUR REGION AREA WILL APPEAR. PRESS "0" TO UNLOCK (OPEN the DVD player to ALL zones) ALL, THEN WAIT. INSERT YOUR DISC. Hope this helps. Let me know the status. Thanks, Mike

I have a Philips HTS 3371 DVD home theatre and can not play many DVD's as it give wrong region error. Can you please provide the unlock code and how/where to enter it to get it fixed?


Hi -

Please follow the instructions below for unlocking your Philips HTS 3371


Please note: Unlocking a DVD player may invalidate the warranty. Unlock sequences may not work with some firmware updates and some DVD players have been damaged through failed attempts to unlock them. Unlocking your DVD player is done at your own risk.


1. Switch the DVD player ON
2. OPEN the disc tray
3. Key 9 9 9 9 0 using the Philips remote control supplied with the player
4. Press PLAY. The disc tray will close.
5. Switch the player OFF then switch ON again.
6. To test, play a disc from a region which was previously locked.

If it does not work the first time, switch the player off and back on, then try again.

This is a verified unlock method, but I was unable to confirm whether it works for players sold locked to Region 1 (North America). If you have a Region 1 player and the method above does not work, you will not be able to unlock your player.

Regards,
BElectric
