Question about Philips Televison & Video
Philips Pet940 portable dvd player won't play NTSC dvds
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.
