You might have to update the firmware on it. This usually involves connecting the Player to the internet though your home network, and then in menu go to update. Best buy can do this for a fee if having trouble.

You can change the region code as described in your manual, but I always advise against doing so.
The reason I advise against changing your region code is that every DVD and blu-ray player/recorder has an anti-piracy feature built in that will permanently disable it after three such changes, and there is no way to fix it.
If you insist on changing to region A, follow the manual instructions, but please be advised that afterward you will then only have two region changes left. You will need one to reset to region B after you watch your region A DVD. Once you make the third change, you will have to leave it or risk turning your recorder into a paperweight. This applies to PC DVD drives as well.
There is a public domain program called DVD Shrink that will allow a PC to copy most DVD's as region 0 (playable in all regions) with a slight quality sacrifice. I have no experience with a blu-ray version, but it is worth a look.
I advise against anything on the internet that claims to set your player/recorder to "region free" because all the programs of that nature that I have seen turned out to be pranks that permanently disable your player/recorder.
Good luck, and Thank You for using FixYa!

There are two different lasers on the drive.. Red for DVD and CD.. Blue for Blu Ray..

The Blue Laser may have failed.

Of course it always helps to check drivers and firmware updates for the drive itself. There was one firmware update 12/2010 for this player at the Panasonic USA website (support) Version 1.43

Finally Check your BD Ratings settings. There is a setting that could prevent all Blue Ray Discs from being played. It should be set to NO LIMIT which allows any rating. Page 24 of your manual.

Best of luck!

It sounds like the bluray laser is worn out. Try cleaning the lens with a Blu-ray lens cleaner. If that dosen't help it might be the blu-ray laser it self. The laser is dead. If you are under warranty the call the manufacture for service. Shop around for current retail prices. Bluray players have gone down alot and it might be better to go ahead a buy a new player.

How to reset the pin for Panasonic DMR-HW120EBK 500GB HDD Recorder with Twin Freeview +HD Tuners (2012)

This is the definitive answer from Panasonic Customer Services. It worked for me.

In response to your enquiry, I am writing to inform you that you can reset the PIN number to the default 0000 and then change it, based on your preference. In order to reset the PIN, please follow the next steps:
1. Switch ON the unit;
2. Press and hold the OK, YELLOW and BLUE buttons, at the same time, until you see 00 RET displayed on the unit;
3. Press, repeatedly, the RIGHT ARROW buton until you see 03 VL;
4. Press OK and you should see "INIT" displayed on the unit.
This will reset the PIN number to the 0000 factory preset.
Furthermore, you should also be able to remove the message that is asking you for the child lock PIN while attempting to play back a recording. In order to do this, please follow the next steps:
1. Press SETUP;
2. Choose HDD/USB HDD;
4. Input the default 0000 code;
5. Switch it to OFF.
After performing these steps, the recorder should no longer ask you for the PIN when trying to playback a recording.
I trust that the above information will be of assistance to you. However, of course, if you should have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Kind Regards,
Customer Service Team

Panasonic DMR-XS 350EBK DVD recorder PIN No unlock?

Contact Amazon since somebody set the pin number before the item was sent, the only other suggestion is check your owners manual for additional information, if no solution can be found and Amazon can't help, then it should be returned to them at their expence and they send a suitable exchange since warranty applies.

    HOLD or X HOLD? If the latter - which is most likely - then the Child Lock has been activated! Press and hold ENTER and RETURN simultaneously until HOLD disappears!
