Question about Mitsubishi DD-8020 DVD Player

2 Answers

DVD not loading

I have a Mitusbishi DD-8020 which I purchased 5 years ago. Recently I purchased new DVDs, maily from Columbia and Warner Bros. that will not load, although other new DVDs will. I've cleaned the lens and I still have the same problem. I read somewhere that these companies have RCE encoding and that their DVDs will not play on a region-free DVD players. Is the DD-8020 a region-free player? If it is, is there a fix to this problem, or do I need to purchase a new player? I've also noticed that the DVDs that will not load have a small clear ring at the begining of the DVD (much like the old CD copy protection). Could this be the problem?

You have to look on the back of your dvd player to see what region your player is then you will have to check the dvds that you have from colombia and warner bros and see what are thier region.you dont have to purchase a new dvd just dont buy or rent dvds from the above mention place.if the region on the dvds of both place do not match your dvd player you will be wasting your time.good luck.

DVD Regions Information The DVD region code identifies a DVD's compatibility...


DVD Regions Information

The DVD region code identifies a DVD's compatibility with the players typically sold in a particular region.


Region 0 (or "region free") is compatible with DVD players from any region.

The majority of all current titles play only in one specific region unless otherwise noted. DVDs sold by Amazon.co.uk are encoded for Region 2 or Region 0. Region 2 DVDs may not work on DVD players in other countries.

Region 1 DVDs sold by Marketplace sellers

Region 1 discs are intended for use with standard DVD players in North America (Canada and the USA). In most instances they can also be played on compatible "multi-region" DVD players (also known as "chipped" or "region-free" players).

They also require an NTSC-compatible television. NTSC is the standard picture format in North America, and differs from the PAL format adopted in Britain and Europe. Region 1 DVDs are usually presented in NTSC format, so you should ensure that your TV is capable of reading the NTSC signal before purchasing Region 1 DVDs.

Regional Coding Enhancement (RCE)

Regional Coding Enhancement (RCE) has been added by some film studios (specifically Warner and Columbia) to selected Region 1 DVDs, with the intention of preventing these discs from playing on some multi-region DVD players. We are therefore unable to guarantee that all Region 1 discs will be compatible with all multi-region players.

Lost power, need to extract dvd disc


Straighten a paperclip. On the face of most disk players there is a small hole. Push the paper clip into the hole, and the disk tray should release. Pull the tray out to it's full extension. Power being on or off is immaterial. Hope this help.

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.

Sony RDR-VX500 does not load some dvds, disc error.


Try the disks in another DVD player. If they play with no problems in another player, then you have a hardware issue with your Sony. Nowadays, if it is out of warranty, fixing it is not worth it, because it is cheaper to replace, at least in the USA.
