A lg Bpm34 streaming blu Ray DVD player. I watched a movie and has love scenes the movie would turn off. It happen when the movie had a person swearing to. Now during a movie it turn the movie off.


It seems you have the content lock turned on at a low setting and the player is censoring your content. If you do not have the User Manual (not Quick Guide), obtain it here and look at p24, 'Lock Menu'

I burnt a movie onto a DVD RW disk and it seems to be locked. How do i unlock it so i can burn different stuff on it?


While writing to a RW disk, make sure to select the option of multi writing. In case you finalise the disk, you will not be able to write on it any further.

A friend placed a malaysian cdrw or data dvd in my computer and now my cd/dvd player is juddery. Sound and dvd files play fine off the hard drive. It is the mechanical drive that malfunctions. Can you help...


it's not mechanical fault. In DVD drive,there si one thing called "DVD Regional code"

What are regional codes ? 

Motion picture studios want to control the home release of movies in different countries because theater releases aren't simultaneous (a movie may come out on video in the U.S. when it's just hitting screens in Europe). Also, studios sell distribution rights to different foreign distributors and would like to guarantee an exclusive market. Therefore they required that the DVD standard include codes to prevent playback of certain discs in certain geographical regions. Each player is given a code for the region in which it's sold. The player will refuse to play discs that are not coded for its region. This means that a disc bought in one country may not play on a player bought in another country. Some people believe that region codes are an illegal restraint of trade, but no legal cases have established this. 

The world is split up into 8 DVD regions: 

Region 1: U.S., Canada, U.S. Territories
Region 2: Japan, Europe, South Africa, and Middle East (including Egypt)
Region 3: Southeast Asia and East Asia (including Hong Kong)
Region 4: Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands, Central America, Mexico, South America, and the Caribbean
Region 5: Eastern Europe (Former Soviet Union), Indian subcontinent, Africa, North Korea, and Mongolia
Region 6: China
Region 7: Reserved
Region 8: Special international venues (airplanes, cruise ships, etc.)


Old DVD-ROM drives came with a firmware level RPC-1. Software protection was used to control which region is played. 

New DVD-ROM drives come with a firmware level RPC-2 with hardware protection. RPC 2 drives have a 5 change limit on regions, once the counter gets to 0 your drive is permanently locked to the last region it was set to. Even if you reformat or move the drive to another system it will still be locked to the last region. There are ways to get around it, some models have resetting tools made by 3rd parties to reset the change limit back to 5 and some also have firmware patches to remove the region lock.

Now as far as solving the problem. Just follow the below instruction.
Windows keeps track of the DVD region and after its initial setting you are allowed to only change it once more. Its possible to reset the counter by performing the following registry change:

Start the registry editor (regedit.exe)

Move to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft

There will be a subkey (the first) of a strange format, e.g. ';t-z% with a single REG_QWORD value

Select the key and delete

Restart the computer

Upon restart you should be able to modify the region again.

I don't think you need to modify as your DVD refional counter will start from 5.

That's it.

I have a 2006 cadilliac cts that came with a factory dvd player. i can watch movies until i put it in drive. when i put it in drive the scree goes blank and i can only hear the movie. Is there a way that i...


You can try the procedure for the VM9311TS model (the one I have) - I don't know if it'll work but it's worth trying. Put in a DVD, and let it start playing. Then hit STOP on the remote twice, and enter the code 1264. If you were able to see the actual movie at this point, you'd see a menu pop up. Push down twice, then ENTER. At this point the blue screen should clear and you should see the movie itself. You'll have other options on that menu, like a macrovision option to allow you to see burned DVDs. Set what you like, then on the remote, hit SYS SETUP twice to lock in your choices.
