    Re pioneer dvd 535
    Thank you- I have tried the advice from Jack_Daniels 138117, it does not work.
    They must have made the Australian version region 4 to be "very difficult " to change.
    Perhaps there is something inside the dvd box that needs to be altered

pioneer dvd dv 535 to - moz-screenshot-2.jpgThis is an excerpt from the dvd player manual.it doesnt appear that you can change the region of this player without first installing a key master or something similar the details are as follows.


FROM MANUAL
Regional restriction codes (region number)
Regional restriction codes are built in to DVD players and
DVD discs for each sales region. If the regional code of
the DVD player does not match one of the regional
codes of the DVD disc, playback is not possible.
The region number can be found on the rear panel of the
DVD player. The illustration below shows the regions
and corresponding region numbers.



SOLUTION
If you install a "keymaster" (http://www.codefree.dk) you can change region code by doing this:

1) Turn on with no disc in.
2) On the remote control, press "SETUP".
3) Select "GENERAL" (certify that the "SETUP" is on "BASIC".
4) Press "DISPLAY".
5) Press "CONDITION".
6) Choose region code and quit "SETUP".
hope this helps......... Good Luck!

Change region


When a DVD disc is created, it is encoded with a "Region number." The disc will only play on DVD players with the same Region number - for instance, a Region 3 disc won't play on a Region 1 player.
Region 1: U.S. and U.S. Territories, Canada
Region 2: Japan, Western Europe, Middle East, South Africa
Region 3: South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southeast and East Asia Region 4: New Zealand, Australia, Pacific Islands, Mexico, Central/
South America
Region 5: Russia and the former Soviet Union, Africa, Indian
subcontinent, North Korea Region 6: China
The only way to get around the region codes, is to rip a DVD to your computer and remove the region code. Then burn the DVD to a DVD R. There are programs around on the net, but I'm not sure it is legal in all countries.
Google for the programs.
A DVD player sometimes allows you to change the region code once. But it not even would allow you to switch back after you changed it once.

Pioneer region free code DV-340, DV-343, DV-444, DV-545


Introduction
The Px4x DVD Upgrade is an advanced modification to your DVD player, which adds extra features and enables you to get more from your machine. The upgrade supplements the DVD player and in no way harms the playback quality or removes any performance features of the DVD player.

Main Features
The DVD Upgrade adds the following features to your DVD player:
 Multiregion capability
 Macrovision disable

Players Supported
The following DVD players are supported by this version of the DVD Upgrade:

 Pioneer DV-340, Pioneer DV-343
 Pioneer DV-444
 Pioneer DV-545

Modification Details
Multiregion selection
Nearly all DVD discs on the market today are encoded with a specific "region" in mind and are made in such a way that a disc designed for "region 1" will not play on a player designed for "region 2". This is so that the Hollywood studios can control the release of titles in different geographical regions all over the world. Our upgrade allows you to select between regions 1 to 6.
Macrovision & CGMS disable
All DVD players have a system called Macrovision built in to the player, which is designed to stop the copying of DVD discs to video. However, this system can have adverse affects on some projectors. For this reason the DVD Upgrade disables Macrovision to solve any problems.

Operating Instructions
You can select the region code by remote. This region will be tried first when playing a disk.
Due to this design, the modification will work on the RCE (Regional Code Enhancement) protected DVD’s. In some cases it will be necessary to insert a conventional (non RCE protected) disc before playing a RCE protected disc. Follow the instructions as detailed bellow:

1. Turn the player on without a disc in it
2. On the remote control, press 'SETUP'
3. Use right arrow to select 'General'
4. Use down arrow to select 'Basic'
5. Press 'ENTER' on the remote control
6. Press 'Display' on the remote control
You should see the region code and OSD version that the player is set to
7. Press 'Condition/Memory'
8. Press '1', '2', '3', '4', '5' or '6' to change the region code of the player
The text will disappear
9. Press ' Display ' on the remote to control the region
10. Press 'SETUP' on the remote to exit. Play the disc
This dident work for me but mayby work for you.

How do I change the region code


One way, of course--probably the simplest and safest--would be to play a Region 1 sourced disc in you Australia player, but you would have only a few times you could switch back and forth between "America" and your own region's "Australia" recordings before your player "died" permanently to one or both regions.

Smarter would be to segregate your discs by the two regions; acquire a second player; convert it to region 1 by playing a N. America disc; and, afterwards, play each disc, respectively, on its own like-country-coded player. Players are inexpensive enough to make that feasible. If you are outputting to an entertainment center, it should be little problem to find an AB switching devise to switch from one player output to the other so that you two "countries" can share the same sound center.

I would be hesitant about trying to defeat the anti-piracy circuitry built into all players by other means. Or, at least, contact your player's manufacturer or tech support for advice.

There are computer programs capable of remove the region code from a DVD, but the result should be burned on a new DVD. Most players don't allow a change in the region code more than once. So on your player nothing to hack. Sorry

For all other options, please use Google.

Pioneer model # DV-c503 will play DVD but does not play CD's anymore.


Hello,
The problem could be dirt on the surface of the lens.
Use a dry cotton bud to clean the surface of the lens, this you have to do gently because the lens is fragile.
If otherwise you have to change the lens.
Try websites Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy parts for replacement..

I live in germany and want to play dvd,s from Australia, Pioneer DV-360 from german store


Most DVD players I've seen are either multi-regional or one-region units. The DVD player you bought might be a one-region device. I'd check on that first. If it is, then you'll only be able to play DVD's made for that particular region. If it is multi-regional, look in the manual or go to Pioneer's website to possibly find the codes.
