Question about RCA RTD258 System

Open Question

RCA RTD258E does not play Region 4 DVD.

Bought the RCA RTD258E after Christmas and it plays all other DVD-R's etc, but wont play a 'bought' DVD. The screen goes blue then black. When I go to AUX1, it says Disc Region Incorrect. It is a region 4 player and as I am in Australia, it should work. Have rung for technical support, but am still waiting. Place where I bought it said "have you googled RCA region unlocking codes?" Was not happy with that response,even though it was the first thing I tried. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Try to find out by looking at the menu of the dvd. play the DVD without a CD Rom in it then press stop and menu at the same time. It will let you select a region for it to play. But sometimes you can only do that with a different DVD players. so0me DVD players are only made to play on what you already have it on.

Apparently they are locked to region 4 and I have bought region 1 DVDs so they won't play


In most models the unit cannot converted to multi-regions.So it will play only in the specified region in which it is applicable to.But in some unit models there is a procedure to turn the unit to multi region so it can play all region dvd.On all models the procedure to convert the unit to multi region is different.As you have not mentioned the exact model number of your unit.t will not be easy to give exact details.If in case there is a procedure to convert your unit to multi region.

Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Have dvd that say check regional code how do i do this ?


sounds like you have purchased the wrong region coded dvd`s when you bought them from amazon? if you are in the US you can only play Region 1, Europe is Region 2 and so on. Unless you purchase a mlti region machine which is obviously not what you want to do then the only other play of playing the wrong region discs is to buy a cheap dvd player which has "DivX" compatability which will play any region for you.

Hi i was after a no region code for a dvd player!!!


To unlock the DVD code its defends upon what region you belongs or from were you bought the DVD unit. Just click this site to hack the region code ; http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks

To keep it simple, this means that DVD players and DVDs are labeled for operation on within a specific geographical region in the world. For example, the U.S. is in region 1. This means that all DVD players sold in the U.S. are made to region 1 specifications. As a result, region 1 players can only play region 1 discs. That's right, the DVDs themselves are encoded for a specific region. On the back of each DVD package, you will a find a region number (1 thru 6).
The geographical regions are as follows:
REGION 1 -- USA, Canada
REGION 2 -- Japan, Europe, South Africa, Middle East, Greenland
REGION 3 -- S.Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Parts of South East Asia
REGION 4 -- Australia, New Zealand, Latin America (including Mexico)
REGION 5 -- Eastern Europe, Russia, India, Africa
REGION 6 -- China
REGION 7 -- Reserved for Unspecified Special Use
REGION 8 -- Reserved for Cruise Ships, Airlines, etc...
REGION 0 or REGION ALL -- Discs are uncoded and can be played Worldwide, however, PAL discs must be played in a PAL-compatible unit and NTSC discs must be played in an NTSC-compatible unit.

The end result is that DVDs encoded for regions other than Region 1 cannot be played on a region 1 DVD player, also, players marketed for other regions cannot play region 1-stamped DVDs

Will play rental dvd's but won't play store bought dvd's


quite possible that the copyright was over ridden and the laser isn't reading the correct format. most dvd's are written in AVI or MPEG or MOV format. a copyright off the main disk has a protection line in it when the dvd is re-recorded that locks out the disk's contents. a regular recorded dvd plays.
