Question about Panasonic DVD & Blu-Ray Players
I have a DMR-ES20 DVD Recorder, and recently every DVD that I try to play results in an on Screen message which says that this Disc cannot be played in your region. I have even tried Discs that I have already played numerous time on the same player, and the message still come up.
SOURCE: dvd player not playing discs
did you check to see if you had the audio video cables on the dvd player plugged in the right place also you might want to get a s-video cable it is much easier that way not toooo much problem to hook it up you plug it in to your tv and the other part of the cable plugs into your dvd player where it says s-video

There maybe a problem with the optic lens (dirt) try to clean it very gently with cotton, also the motor plate that holds the cd/dvd is not holding it very well so it not rotates at proper speed try to clean the both sides where the hole of the cd/dvd is when it´s inserted, if you think that you migth not have skills for that don´t do it.
Hope it help

You can change the region code as described in your manual, but I always advise against doing so.
The reason I advise against changing your region code is that every DVD and blu-ray player/recorder has an anti-piracy feature built in that will permanently disable it after three such changes, and there is no way to fix it.
If you insist on changing to region A, follow the manual instructions, but please be advised that afterward you will then only have two region changes left. You will need one to reset to region B after you watch your region A DVD. Once you make the third change, you will have to leave it or risk turning your recorder into a paperweight. This applies to PC DVD drives as well.
There is a public domain program called DVD Shrink that will allow a PC to copy most DVD's as region 0 (playable in all regions) with a slight quality sacrifice. I have no experience with a blu-ray version, but it is worth a look.
I advise against anything on the internet that claims to set your player/recorder to "region free" because all the programs of that nature that I have seen turned out to be pranks that permanently disable your player/recorder.
Good luck, and Thank You for using FixYa!
