Most DVD playerscan only be set to one region and can only be changed regions a certionnumber of times like 5. It is meant to play one region its whole life.What you can do is get DVD ripping software on your computer. Rip the dvd and then reburn it with NO region. It is quite easy to do.

When purchasing a DVD I don't understand what is meant by 'region'. Please tell me which 'region' the UK is


The UK, Europe and Japan use Region 2. Region 1 discs are used in the USA or Canada. These codes control where the discs can be played, and you cannot normally buy DVDs in a different region and play them at home.

My Samsung smart tv & my dvd/bluray player recorder I bought at same time. Haven't had blurays til now & wont play at all. Rental ones did now I've bought my own & they don't play!Not tech minded.HELP


Each DVD player is assigned a code for the region in which it's sold. For example USA/Canada are Region 1 players. DVD players will refuse to play discs not coded for its specific region. In effect, this means that a DVD purchased in one country is normally unreadable on a DVD player bought in another region.

If your rental DVDs work in the player then there is nothing wrong with your DVD player. If you have purchased DVDs that do not work the problem is with the DVDs you have, not with the DVD player.

Why does it indicate 'wrong region'?


DVDs come imprinted with a region code for the geographical area they are sold in. DVD players sold in the same area(s) have the same region code. If you purchase DVDs made for a different region code, they will not play on your player. This is done to prevent piracy and copyright violators. Players can have their region codes changed, but then anything you have already will not play, and you are usually limited to three or four region changes before the player will not allow any more.

Here is a link to a Wikipedia article explaining Region Codes in more detail....

I have a LG DC593W DVD player and I want to be able to play DVDs in Australia that I buy from the UK and USA, what is the code I use please?


you can change the "zone" in your DVD player to that of the UK / USA but then it may not play your local DVDs .. you can only change the zone 5 times so you dont want to be changing it back and forth .... you could have two units set up with one for UK and one for local zones .. or its sometimes possible to modify the software in the player to be "code free" .. there are lots of machines that are for sale that are already modified or you might find a mod for your present machine .. that way it will play anything .. to find whats available you can google "dvd code free"

Need to unlock the region code so that I can play Australian DVD's on UK machine


Go to videohelp.com and search on the model number - the sequence of remote control keys to press to change the region code is there. It worked well for me, so I could play US DVDs on my UK region machine.

Wrong Regional Disc.


DVDs are ecoded with region codes to indicate what area of the world they are made for. These codes may be 1,2,3, etc depending on which region they are made for.
DVD player read these codes and if the disc region code does not match the region the device is made for, the player will not play the disc.
Region 1 is for USA so most DVDp players made for use in USA require region 1 discs.
Some DVD players called multi region DVD players can be set to play different region DVDs but they are typically more expr=ensive then one region players and the code must be changed each time a different region disc is played.

Wrong region, all I get on screen.


http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks

Try to unlock the region on your player using the folowing link. DVDs and DVD players have different region codes in different countries from 0-6 e.g. USA is region 1 and UK is region 2. So a USA DVD would not play on a UK DVD player. Hope this helps.
