What your friend needs is a region hack...Go to have your friend put in the model number, hit search, scroll down, look to the right. If any one has a hack for this they do.

insert the dvd disc from other region then the region code error will flash on the tv screen, then press the on screen button on your remote twice, then search search for the clock and set it to 0:00:00 and enter and it will automatically play.

My DVD player won't play the DVD. It tells me to check the regional code. What is a regional code?

a regional code is something embedded in a dvd so it can only be in the region of the world where the dvd was ment to be sold. In North America the letters NTSC are seen on all DVD's and games. In europe it says PAL. Look for the letters on the dvd.

I have just bought a Toshiba SD590EKB dvd player and it will not play certain discs, it keeps on saying wrong regional code. How can I solve this problem?

Check the back of the dvd player and it will have a small sticker with a small picture of a globe (or earth) and it will have a number being one through to six, this will determine what region discs you can play in you machine. Ill list the regions and their codes, i hope this helps.

Region 1 - The U.S., U.S. territories and Canada.

Region 2 - Europe*, Japan, Middle East, Egypt, South Africa, Greenland.

Region 3 - Taiwan, Korea, the Philippines, Indonesia, Hong Kong .

Region 4 - Mexico, South America, Central America, Australia, New Zealand, Pacific. Islands, Caribbean

Region 5 - Russia (former USSR), Eastern Europe, India, most of Africa, North Korea, Mongolia

Region 6 - China

Good luck.

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.
