I need code(s) for my DVD Video, Model #: NB093 remote control to program my Philips DVD Player/VCR, Model #: DVP3345V/17. Can you please help me? I would greatly appreciate it. Here is a picture of it. lists the code for your device as possibly being 1000, 1001, 1002, 1003, 1004, or 1005. Of course, you also have the option of using the remote controller's "Code Search" button. 25300580-iv4burzhkawezvl2jbah1xae-2-0.jpg With Codes:
Turn on the DVD/VCR unit directly. Continue to depress the remote controller's "Code Search" button for about ten seconds, release, & the light on the remote controller should stay on. Enter the four-digit code (1000, 1001, 1002, 1003, 1004, or 1005) for the DVD/VCR unit. The remote controller's light should go off. Press the remote controller's power button, & when the DVD/VCR unit turns off, then you will know that the remote controller has been correctly programmed.

Without Codes:

With the DVD/VCR unit on, continue to depress the remote controller's "Code Search" button for about ten seconds, release, & the light on the remote controller should stay on. Continue to tap the remote controller's UP or DOWN channel button ONLY UNTIL the DVD/VCR unit responds. Then, press the power button on the remote controller once the channel has changed. If the DVD/VCR unit shuts off, then press the power button again to turn it back on. If the DVD/VCR unit turns on, then the remote controller has been correctly programmed. Otherwise, repeat this whole process until the remote controller is correctly programmed.

Unit model D-C350/XSA only opens region 4 need to also to open region 2 DVD's

Hi there,

When I was with Samsung NZ, the following was how we multizoned our DVD (Region 4) players:
1. Turn on your player, but ensure no disc in machine - screen should show "No Disc"
2. Turn on your TV and select your DVD input (as if you were to watch your DVD).

Using your factory supplied remote, press the following buttons:

3. Press the Repeat (or Repeat A-B) button
4. Press the following button sequence: 7, 6, 8, 8, 4, 9 (you should see the number '9' appear on screen - this means 'Region Free').
5. Press the Open/Close button (to open the tray)
6. Press the Open/Close button again (to close the tray)
7. Press Power OFF (to shut down your DVD player)
8. Press Power ON (to turn on your DVD player)
9. Insert Region 2 disc and wait (up to 1min) for firmware to respond and read your disc

If this fails, try procedure again, except for Step 4: change the last number (instead of 9) to '2'.

Let me know how you get on.

4.Enter the first possible four-digit code on the universal remote, and then press another button on the remote to see if the device is now programmed, such as the volume control or power button.
5.If the device responds, you have successfully programmed your Philips universal remote.
6. If not, turn the device off and back on and follow the steps again using the next code on the list. Repeat until the device successfully responds
