DVD players are divided into zones, depending on what part of the world you live in.

I sent an e-mail to Panasonic New Zealand to ask about this, and they advised: "Panasonic NZ no longer pre set DVD recorders or players
for all region multi-zones.However, we will multi-zone for all
regions on request.This needs to be done by an
Authorised Service Centre, as a special service remote is
used.Once delivered to one of these
agents, the service company will charge the fee to Panasonic
If you're not in NZ, try contacting Panasonic in your own country. Just call up www.panasonic with your country code after eg. US = .com and NZ = .co.nz.
