Question about GoVideo VR4940 DVD Player/VCR

DVD/VCR combo says every dvd is unreadable

I had my brother-in-law burn a dvd that was labeled Region 2 because it would not play on my dvd player. I put in the burned dvd and it said something about "initializing" that took 3 minutes. The dvd didn't play. I then tried to put in normal dvds that have played before and every dvd gets spit out with a message about it being "unreadable." What is going on?

Try unplugging the unit for a few minutes..region 2 doesn't work on older dvd players/recorders..the newer ones may handle it...try the computer...and see if that can play it...

The music association does not want users to play DVDs from other countries. Your DVD player will switch countries about three times then lock up. Contact the OEM, they have to do that by law in the US.

Here are some hacks to resolve the problem.

I was just wondering if Magnavox Dvd/VCr combo MWR20V6 is a multi-region dvd player?


all dvd players are region free when you first buy them, they set the region themselves, after 5 dvd's have been played on them. So if you had a european dvd player and played 5 USA dvd's on it , it would lock to the USA region and you would be unable to play european dvd's on it. Exactly what a friend did many years ago when he bought a load of american dvd films from someone and played them on his brand spanking new dvd player :)

Trying to play dvd but says wrong region soneynhv-dx350ab?


Hi, if its saying wrong region. then either your player or disk is incompatable. region 1 ntsc ( USA ) Region 2 ( UK ) et,c. check your players region coding is compatable for your country, and that you are also playing a dvd with the same region coding as the player. alternatively is to try and find a region free or multi-region solution.
