Cant play a region 1 dvd


The DVD and *and* the DVD player both have a region code embedded in each. A map of the regions used appears below:

steve_con_2.gif

Regions 0, 7, 8 & 9 do not appear as they represent "No Region Coding" "Unused" "Cruise Lines" and "Region Free" respectively.

A DVD player will only play a matching region code DVD, or the player OR DVD have one (or more) 0, 7, 8, or 9 region codes imbedded. You'll not be able to change the DVD code, but you *might* be able to change the region code of your player. Computer DVD players can sometimes be flashed to a new region more readily than the entertainment system DVD players, but it relies solely on the manufacturer and model of the player. Some require file be downloaded and run, while others require a DVD or CD be created and played with a specific file saved on it. Here's a link to results that discuss how to change the region code for DVD players. You'll need to know at the very least the manufacturer and model number of you player to begin.

I hope this helps and good luck! If you found this helpful, please rate my reply 4 "thumbs up". Thanks!

I want to play Dvd's from Europe so I want a region code free.


1. Power ON the main unit (some unlocks work with, some with no disc inside)
2. Press the SETUP button (on the top of the player) to open the setup menu
3. Navigate to the PREFER menu using the button below the screen
4. Press NEXT>, PREVIOUS, NEXT>, PREVIOUS, NEXT>, NEXT>, aPREVIOUS

(NEXT> and PREVIOUS are on the top of the player next to the SETUP button. Don't use the menu navigation buttons below the screen for this.)

5. The current Region of the player should be displayed on the screen

6. Use the menu navigation UP/DOWN buttons (below the screen) to change the region. Region 0 is region-free.

7. Press PLAY/OK (below the screen) to confirm the region selection

The player should now be unlocked and able to play discs from all regions - it worked on my PD9012/37 that was region 1

Please note: Unlocking a DVD player may invalidate the warranty and some DVD players have been damaged through failed attempts to unlock them. Unlocking the DVD player is attempted at your own risk.

Hi Jetix,

If the DVD player is capable of playing other regions, you should be able to change the region setting through the menu section. If there isn't an option to change the region settings in the menu, then your DVD player is not able to play other DVDs from other regions.

Sincerely,

Agent Xiong

Programmed for region 2....Need to change to 1


Q: What is Regional Coding enhancement(RCE)?
A: It's a digital enhancement added to some Warner Bros and Columbia DVDs to stop region 1 (R1) DVDs from playing on Region-free DVD players.

Q: What's the difference between Region Coding and RCE?
A: Regional Coding enhancement(RCE) is an additional layer of protection which some studios have placed on select REGION 1 DVDs to prevent them from playing on region-free or multi-region players. Region Coding is a part of the DVD spec which divides the world into 8 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.)

Basically, DVDs released in each region will typically only play on players sold in that region. IE a DVD released in the UK *Region 2* would not play on a player sold in the us *Region 1*. You can tell what Region a DVD is coded for by looking at the back of the box for a Globe with a number on it. The number correlates to the region list above. If a DVD is listed as 'Region 0' it means that it isn't coded for any region and should play on ALL regions players.

Incorrect region codde


This is for DVP31XXX series i hope it works all on DVP31 series. It has been tested on DVP3146K /51 and it has been worked...


1. Make sure there is no disc in the player.
2. Turn power off and on again.
3. Open the tray.
4. On the remote, hit 9879 and then 0. This changes unit to Region 0, meaning it'll play all regions.
5. Hit OK on the remote.

Good Luck Guys!
