Question about Philips 30DV693R 30 in. TV/DVD Combo
I have a Daenyx DV-833 DVD player that is supposed to play NTSC (region 1) and PAL (region 2) discs. It only plays NTSC and when I put a PAL disc in the player it tells me WRONG REGION. Can anyone tell me if there is something I can do to correct this problem.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US.

Two issues: if it isn't playing Region 1 discs, then that particular player was designed for use outiside of the US. It is illegal to change the region code, so I would call Philips and get a replacement. But, if you want, there are YouTube videos that show you how to unlock the code - it can only be used 3 times and then it locks up permanently.
Second issue: if it won't play NTSC DVD's, go into the menu and take it off of PAL - if it is stuck on PAL, then that player was definitely designed for outside the US. Call Philips and get a replacement.
The PET940 is the general model number - afterwards is a country code - if it doesn't say PET940/17 or PET940/37, then it is a non-US player.
