Dvd region code error

I recently bought the new Indiana Jones dvd. I live near kolkata , India. I bought the dvd from a reputed music store. It was written on the back of the dvd that it was meant to be sold only in india and sri lanka. Now whenever i try to play it in my philips dvd player it says "wrong region" and stops and it does not respond at all until i switch off the player. Please advice.

First of all, stop buying this trash. When people stop rewarding companies for creating restricted garbage DRM will die. Our XV-S300 was stolen recently, but this works for the XV-S500, and maybe the 300 as well:

TO MAKE THIS DRIVE REGION FREE:

1. Remove the disc
2. Close the door
3. Press 0 then ENTER on the remote control (RM-SXV008J)
(The player will display the PREVIOUS region setting
then will set itself to what you told it.)
------------------------------------------------------------------
(With the player OFF press 0 then ENTER on the remote)
------------------------------------------------------------------
From the website:

With the player off, just enter the region number you want and hit
"enter".
After a few seconds, you're ready to go.

It is not a permanent hack, you will have to to it over for every out of region movie you put in.

1. When "REGION CODE ERROR" shows on screen after you've input your wrong-region DVD you push "ON SCREEN".

2. When the DVD-menu is showing push "ON SCREEN" again and another DVD-menu will appear.

3. Move the arrow over to the clock and press enter. The menu asks for "TIME" and you write 0:00:00 and push enter.

4. You will now see the menu for the movie. Remove the DVD-menu by pushing "ON SCREEN" once. You can now watch the movie.

This model DVD player can play the following disc formats:

DVD-Video (Region 1 or relevant region coded store-bought movies)

DVD-R (must be finalised on appropriate recording equipment for compatible playback)

CD-R (for jpeg/mp3 media files)

CD-RW (for audio such as mp3)

music CD (such as store-bought albums)

This player will NOT accept DVD-RW/+RW discs, or Blu-Ray.

I hope this helps you a tiny bit.

This is a replacement player and it will not play some of my best disks I get 'wrong area code'.I live in Australia and bought the player from a reputable store.Thanks John Leigh.


Either the player or the disks are for a different region. The bright people who run the entertainment bussiness decide that it would be a good idea that only players and disks from certain areas of the world should only be used in their particular region. I quess they thought that no one moves or buys things through e-bay.
Try one of these resets
Open the tray.
- On your remote press '0000'.
- Press '0' to make it region free or whichever zone you want to set it to.
- The newly selected region will appear on the top left corner of the screen.
- Close the tray.

Turn on the player.
2. Open the tray.
3. Press the following sequence on the remote:
7 8 9 OK 0
4. The number 0 will appear on the lower left side of your screen.
5. Your player is now region free! Put in a DVD and enjoy! :)

Getting Region 1


All the recent DVD drives have the region set in the hardware. This can be changed, however it can only be changed a small number of times, ( usually 5 ), after which it locks.
Because you do not live in region 1, I recommend that you get a second drive and set it to region 1. When you buy a DVD drive the default region code is the same as the region in which the store is..

Not sure on the details, but I think the software that came with the drive can change the region. Read help.

Region codes are a curse and one of several reasons why people illegally copy movies.

Other Region codes for Samsung DVD 1080PK


Region code hack posted by anindo_roy, January 09 2009:
I bought a Samsung DVD player 1080PK in Bangalore recently (Jan 2009) and initially it was coded only for region 5 (India). I went through the following steps (which were told to me by a Samsung technician) to make it region free. This steps match closely to the one posed by another viewer so I have retained the same format.
1) Turn on the player with no disc in the tray
2) Press the Open/Close button to open the tray
3) Press the info button, the firmware version shows up
4) After the version info disappears, close the tray again by pressing the Open/Close button
5) At this point, it will show "no disc" at the top. Press the Info button again, and this will disappear.
6) Locate the Repeat A-B button on the remote, which in my case was ‘9’
6) Now type the code that applies for your region (R5 (India) is 53814) followed by 9 (Repeat A-B button) and then press the Enter button. So enter 538149 and then Enter. A last few digits ‘4’ and '9' may briefly show up at the top left corner.
8) Power off the player, and turn it on again. You'll have a multi region player
Region Code for the 1080PK hack:
R1 - 29334
R2 - 57538
R3 - 56732
R4 - 76884
R5 - 53814
R6 - 24462
This worked for me after a couple of tries.
