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.

How to make region free dvd


Usually a region 1 DVD player will not be able to be a multi region because it needs to be able to convert between pal and NTSC to play on your NTSC TV. Unless the player is a European model then it would be possible!

I put in my dvd on my magnavox blue ray player and it says disc error then something like disc not recorded for thins region code * 2 * 45 *


DVDs are recorded for three world regions (for copyright reasons and to match the electronic TV system also broadly in three world regions known as PAL, SECAM & NTSC)
You're likely in the USA as you refer to the Magnavox brand.
Your region is 1 and system NTSC.
Your machine is correctly telling you it can't play the disc because it's for Region 2 system PAL.
However, there are multi region players available, for a few dollars more, which play discs of any region or system.

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 is the country code for australia - lg dvd recorder


The geographical regions 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.

The end result is that DVDs encoded for regions other than Region 1 cannot be played on a region 1 DVD player, also, players marketed for other regions cannot play region 1-stamped DVDs.

Hope this information is useful to you.

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.
