I bought two of these from Target and want to unlock them to allow non-region 1 dvds to be played. I can't try the 'usual' audiovox codes as there is no remote control with this unit. This is a christmas present - so help urgently needed!
(I think they are also sold as venturer but don't have the specific model.)

Two issues: if it isn't playing Region 1 discs, then that particular player was designed for use outiside of the US. It is illegal to change the region code, so I would call Philips and get a replacement. But, if you want, there are YouTube videos that show you how to unlock the code - it can only be used 3 times and then it locks up permanently.
Second issue: if it won't play NTSC DVD's, go into the menu and take it off of PAL - if it is stuck on PAL, then that player was definitely designed for outside the US. Call Philips and get a replacement.
The PET940 is the general model number - afterwards is a country code - if it doesn't say PET940/17 or PET940/37, then it is a non-US player.
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.
(2)On the remote control
(3)press SETUP button
(4)press right arrow key 3 times,
(the preference page will show up)
(6)Use the up and down key to select Region
(Select Region 0 for all regions)
(7)press SETUP again to save choices and exit
The screen will show: "Region Code: 2" Press [1-6] to manually set the region OR  for multi-region.
Press [SETUP] to exit
You will now be able to play DVDs from anywhere in the world.
This is particularly useful, because region 1 DVDs from the US often come out when the movies are still in the cinemas over here. Region 1 DVDs can be bought perfectly legally by mail order or from the internet.
