Dvd region usege

I got my home theater about two years ago o more, I´ve giving it good maintainance, but about six months ago I started having problems closing the dvd door, I keep pushing on and on the botton, but the door closes try´s to red de dvd, and opens, untill for some reason closes and reads the dvd. I know the lense is clean, so don´t know what might be wrong with it. And also, my system is a region 1 system, but I leave down south (MX)in the border with California (US), I don´t have problems whith the region, but I got on my birthday last week, the god father threelogy, and two ather movies, on a region 4, I can´t change the movies in the store they got them from, is there a way I can make my sistem work in both regions 1 and 4..?

Nope sorry there is not a way to change regions. On the door problem there seems to be a problem with the timing of the gears or mechanism that closes the door system. Good luck

DVD players have 5 regions. And on the back of every DVD you buy the region code is marked in side a circle ( like a globe ).
Region 1 is North America

To change the region code of your Lifestyle 38 DVD player follow the steps given below.

Yeah you are in a different region and there are regional codes on DVDs so it wont play the American disc probably. There may be a way in the menu to change your regional code

I would like to make my dvd player multi region

I think you will have to take it to an electronic repair shop where the board and lens will most likely be changed to another one that can play a multi region.

Take care

I want to make my home theater for all regions

I am not sure if you can change the region of your DVD player, but there is a way around it. You can make your DVD region free by copying them using a certain software. It will remove copy protection and make them region free. You use it on your computer and it runs in the background allowing your normal copy software to copy any DVD reguarless of copy protection. I have been using this for years and it works great. They also have copy software that give you complete control over what is copied, but that is not required, but it does help to amke higher quality copies by removing the previews and such so ther is more room for the movie. I wish I had a better answer, but this will work in removing the region codes so it will play on any DVD player. Here is a link to get that software, you can try it for 21 days free before you but it to see if it is something you like.
