Question about Panasonic DVD-LA95 Portable DVD Player

1 Answer

Unable to play DVD - incorrect region code or disc type?

The LA95 is a multi regional DVD player, but yet it will not play either PAL or NTSC discs. Errorr message states the disc is the wrong region.
I have reset all the initial settings, as per the manual. The player is set to ratings 8 which is unlocked for all discs.

Daughter was mesing about with the player and she has done something which now prevents it from playing any disc!

Please advise.

Thanks in advance,

Craig (Father of unhappy children when travelling!)

    Hello nginter1,

    Thanks for the quick reply. Yes it is a panasonic portable dvd player, bought in the USA. This was working fine, but now it cannot play the same disc.



    I switched the unit on, (no disc) and pressed backwards and on at the same time, as per your fix. The message initialised was not displayed. Please advise.



    Cheers Craig

    I also have the same problem, I have tried region 1, 2, 4. Region 0 plays fine. The DVD player is region 2. Has anybody else solved this problem?

Is it the Panasonic Portable DVD player

Posted on Nov 13, 2008

    here is one thing it says



    This unit responds to the Region Management Information recorded on DVD-Video. This unit’s region number is “1”. You cannot play the disc if the region number on the DVD-Video does not correspond to the region number on the unit.

    You can play discs marked “1”, “ALL”, or with a region number including “1”.



    Here is what I would do - default it to its original state see below -



    Do the following to reset the unit to its original factory

    settings. While the unit is stopped, press and hold

    [
    ;], [:] (backward), and [1, ON] on the main unit

    for about 3 seconds until the message “Initialized”

    disappears from the LCD, then turn the unit off.

DVD player will play some DVDs and not others. I checked the regions on the discs with the player and they should play. On the back of the player it says it will play region 1 & no region discs. ...


Unless you have a second DVD player (or a PC with a DVD drive or similar) on hand, to cross-reference the discs with, you won't be able to tell if it is the discs or the Daewoo player that has the issue. It could just be a bad batch of discs, but without the second player available to confirm this, there is little you can do.

On the other hand, some of the discs may not be NTSC, they may be PAL, and unless your player supports PAL compatible playback, it won't play it. Rare, but not uncommon (some PAL DVD players won't play NTSC discs regardless of the region code), and it is not your player that is necessarily at fault here.

What format is used when the VHS is copied to the DVD ? I have copied the VHS tapes onto Verbatim DVD-R discs. They will not play on my computer. Verbatim says I need to know what format they are in...


the most common in the US is NTFS. another used in other countrys is PAL. the format is seperated into regions, and they are as follows,
REGION 1 -- USA, Canada
REGION 2 -- Japan, Europe, South Africa, Middle East, Greenland
REGION 3 -- S.Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Parts of South East Asia
REGION 4 -- Australia, New Zealand, Latin America (including Mexico)
REGION 5 -- Eastern Europe, Russia, India, Africa
REGION 6 -- China
REGION 7 -- Reserved for Unspecified Special Use
REGION 8 -- Reserved for Cruise Ships, Airlines, etc...
REGION 0 or REGION ALL -- Discs are uncoded and can be played Worldwide, however, PAL discs must be played in a PAL-compatible unit and NTSC discs must be played in an NTSC-compatible unit.


you can use MAGICdvdRIPPER softwareon your computer, it works with NTSC, and PAL formats and vice versa.

I have just bought a Panasonic DVD-LA95 but did not realise that it is Region 1 only. I need to change it to region 2 to be able to use it here. Can you help please.


you need to check that it supports pal output, if its a european unit (check the manual and player bottom for the ce mark) then it will play pal discs and will need reverting to the multiregion upgrade ( a disc and a few button presses about £20 online)) if its an american unit then it wont play pal discs even if you do manage to multiregion it.

Wrong Disc


Are you referring to a prerecorded commercially produced DVD?

Discs are Region Coded This means that you will not be able to watch DVDs intended for use in a different country, unless you have a multi region player. .

There are two video standard formats, NTSC which is mostly North America, and PAL which is the rest of the world. Some players will play both, others won't. Some DVD players allow you to select the format.
