    Thanks but it is made by Lenoxx don't think it is a Philips machine. I already checked the DVDunlocker listing and it isn't listed under Durabrand or Lenoxx.

Unfortunately, there are no Free region hacks for this player. But for about 15 bucks, you can get a hack from here:

If you own a DVD player from Durabrand, private product brand of Wal-Mart, you can use the following hack to unlock the Durabrand DVD players’ region code so that the DVD player can plays any DVD-video discs regardless of the discs’ region code.

  2. Open the DVD disc tray tray or lid.
  3. Press Stop.
  4. Press 3 - 5 - 9 - 7 (3597 in sequence). Can be done on remote control.

  4. Press Standby button. After pressing, the DVD disc tray will close and DVD player will switch off).
  5. Press Standby button again to power up the DVD player.
Note: To set back the DVD player to region 1 if you’re using above unlock hack, simply press 13691 in sequence. The 0 or 1, the last digit in the key sequence is actually the digit to determine which region code you’re going to set on the DVD player. You can set to other region code by changing the last digit to 2, 3, 9 or other valid region code number.
For Durabrand DP305, try the following DVD region code unlock hack instead.

    It appears that as yet, there is not a FREE  one about on the Net yet.The hack I gave you was for the same series of player "pdv7XX" , and it is worth trying ANY  hacks unlock codes for Lennox/Durabrand make of DVD. Sometimes the same electronics may be used.  Clumsy approach, but may well sort it out for you. Other than that, it may well be worth emailing Durabrand distributors in your area and request any information they may have pertinent to your model.

The company that made these DVD players for Wal Mart has gone out of business in November. Wal Mart is exchanging them for a player of equal or lesser value.

You could check Radio Shack to see if there is an ac adaptor that will work with your player as well.
