Question about Coby TFDVD5000 Portable DVD Player
When a DVD is inserted into the player it starts to load but then displays the message 'wrong regional disc'. However, we do have one DVD that does play (Cartoon Network). Have we adjusted the settings in some way? And how can we get it back?
Not sure if anyone found this solution, worked for me.
1. Press SETUP
2. Press FFW, F REW, NEXT, PREVIOUS
3. Change the code to 255 using the RIGHT arrow key
This will unlock the DVD player for all regions.

I have a Coby DVD7107 with the same "Wrong Disk" problem. I emailed Coby a couple of days ago but now I know to not expect a response. I did find the cause of the problem, I first though it was the laser pickup, but when I defeated the door open switch I could see that when the unit did not load the DVD was only spinning at approximatly 1/3 or less of its normal speed. When the disk would spin at the high speed ( not very often) the DVD would load. So the problem seems to be either the driver motor that spins the dvd or the electronics that control the motor speed. Either way I guess we are all "screwed" when it comes to any assistance from Coby. I went to eBay to try and find the same model for parts or repair but all of them had the same problem listed - would not load - wrong disk. But we do have a nice monitor that you could hook up to an external DVD player (just make sure it isn't a Coby).
