Question about Philips DVD763SA DVD Player
We have the above mentioned Philips DVD Player but sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. It only works if we unplug the player, replug and try to play the DVD. Most time the DVD player has started and then began to jitter (going into slow motion). We'd unplug and restart the DVD about 2 to 4 times and then finally the player would work (as long as we didn't fool with the controls).
I'm assuming this Player is on its way out, but since it is a multi-region DVD player and we live in the UK, I was wondering if I could do something to fix it myself....with your help, of course.
Do you have any recommendations for what is wrong and how to fix it? Thanks. Tom

Is this a Multi-region Player ?
Some Players are region Set to play Only the region they, are intended For. i.e Region 1 = NTSC( USA ) Region 2 = (PAL ) UK. Region 6 = ( ASIA ) And so on.
If you need a multi-region hack for your player, Post here.
I do charge a Small fee for This service.

To check the software version and change
region code of your DVD Portable
1. Power ON the DVD player and open the DVD
2. Press the “SETUP” button on remote control,
then select the “Preference MENU”
3. Press the remote button in the sequence as
9 -> 6 -> 5 -> 3
4. The LCD display showed the existing region
code. Press (navigation up) or
(navigation down) repeatedly to select the
number from 0 to 6.
5. Refer below table for your region code setting
4=Australia, New Zealand
Select “0” setting = Region Free (confidential)

Did you follow these instructions exactly? If you pressed 9990, as you mentioned, it will not work. You need to press 99990. Do you see region "0" on the display?
start the player without any DVD in it.
open the lid.
while the lid is open press 9,9,9,9,0
you should see region 0 displayed.
close the lid.
Your DVD player is now region free.
replace 0 with 1 to 6 at to set the wanted region number if needed.

With your set on and without disc in the tray:
1. Press PLAY from your remote control
2. Press the following button sequence: 1590 2379 390
3. Press PLAY again
This will release the region verification in your home theater (region free). However, some DVDs (multiregion in particular) will not play, since they require region detection from the player unit.
I've done this to my 3090 and been using it like this for 3 years.
