    Same problem, only I found the menu and somehow pressed a combo of buttons and found a 2nd menu and was able to change the region. Long story short, now its stuck in region 2 and not operable at all. Oh, and as in the previous instructions there was no was to opt for "00" Someone please help, any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Somebody said they had the same problem, and suggested the following: On the DVD unit, press STOP and POWER buttons at the same time, and then IMMEDIATELY (1 second or less) press the PREV button. He said, for him it popped up with WM for the Market and 1 for the Region automatically. The codr WM is 00 if you need it. That was all he had to do, and now it's working. Hope that helps anybody else who comes along with the same problem.

My dbpower portable dvd player won't play my dvd I rented.


Try playing a dvd you own that has no visible scratches. If it plays fine then your rental dvd may be bad. If let the movie store know they should give a free rental. I would use a cleaning dvd to clean your player just in case.

The dvd player will play a movie for about 10 minutes then it gets freezes and does not play anymore. It's brand new. had it about 2 months.


I found out this tv/dvd will not play certain movies that are rented from netflix is that their dvd have a restricted thing, and this tv will not read the movies that are on certain disks. It plays movies good that I rented here in town. So theres nothing really wrong with the player itself. I did some reading and this is what I assummed.

DVD'S will not play..


Sounds like the unit is bad, or set to the wrong Regional Code. Its not easy to set the regional code and it varies by model. You are better off buying a new DVD player given they can be found for under $30.

My Sanyo DWM-400 plays some DVD's and won't play others.


I bought another DVD player. I found out that all DVD's don't play on all DVD brands of players. They are cheap enough these days so I decided it wasn't worth a repair bill. The Sanyo DWM-400 plays many of my store bought DVD's and not others. I never tried a home made DVD in it so I don't know how it responds.
