Dvd playback My Samsung combo used to play my PAL region dvd's (I'm in the UK) and for some reason it will not play them now, - I went away on holiday and left my brother house sitting and since coming back it wont play them and he has no idea what he has done!! I get an on-screen message saying "this disc cannot be played please check the regional code of the disc" not all discs say this, it WILL play some discs. Is there anything I can do or try? Thanks

Some busy fingers may have changed the region code.

SOURCE: DVD player isn't loading and playing properly

Since it will play eventualy, I'd suspect a dirty lens. Open up the unit and carefully clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Also, try a music CD. If the CD works flawlessly but DVDs still fail occasssionally, the optics are starting to fail and will need to be replaced.

DVD will not play in color, what am I doing wrong


Hi, are you using a UK pal tv? Chances are you are watching a US region 1 dvd which is encoded in NTSC. This will play in 525 lines and black and white on a UK PAL tv. Does your DVD player have an NTSC playback to PAL tv swich? It would simply be labeled "PAL" and "NTSC" If not on the back then possibly in the menu. If you have the switch select NTSC and try again.

Hope this helps

What is region 2


HELLO

REGION 2 is the DVD playback encoding for the UK, Ireland, Central and Eastern Europe to name a few. Your DVD player or recorder will be "Locked" to this region......unless you hack the machine to play ALL regions (to multi-region) the unit.

If you have a look on Wikipedia on the net, it will tell you all the region codes of different countries. (:-)

Region code blocks DVD


Hi, you have to delete de region coding on your DVD, by using a computer (either a mac or PC, or linux) then you can play it. However, if the format is not the same (PAL&NTSC) it's gonna be impossible : for instance, if your PS3 is NTSC, you wont be able to playback PAL content, however, I think it might be possible to the opposite for PAL PS3 owners, since every PAL DVD player can read NTSC (but practically, none of NTSC player read PAL ...) Sad indeed mate.

Its a pain in the *** willing to try converting PAL to NTSC. You better forget it .... However, if its just a region code issue, as I said first, you can just backup it up deleting the CSS (it's illegal... whatever) and burning the region-unlocked movie to a blank DVD and play it ^^
