I purchased a DVD from Disney, Florida - won't play in UK

I purchased a DVD from Disney, Florida as a gift for parents, Unfortunately on returning to UK it states it can't play as it's outside the area. I can't believe that the Main Street USA shop sells hundreds of these to Brits and nobody ever has this problem. Can anyone help?

I bought a DVD set from Ireland and it won't play on my DVD player or my Wii. Is there a setting I need to change?


Hi there!
North American TVs, consoles and DVD players play video and games in the NTSC format (region 1), while Ireland's and most of Europe's play in PAL(region 2). You best bet to be able to watch your dvd set will be to purchase a dvd player that plays multi regions (these will be a bit more expensive) or to order a region 2 dvd player from Ireland or somewhere in Europe that uses region 2.

Hope this helps!

Need to reset code


Found this on another site, from personal experience but its very well written so here you go.

The Playstation 2 is not only a video game system, but also a DVD player as well. In many families, the Playstation 2 serves as the "kids" DVD player, which means that many parents choose to take advantage of the parental lock feature to limit what kinds of movies the Playstation 2 will play back.
There could be instances where you entered in a parental code months ago, and now can't remember it. Or, you may have purchased a used Playstation 2, and you never knew the code to begin with. If you or the prior owner set a parental lock code, the Playstation 2 won't play back many movies without entering the code first. You could try to hunt down the original owners, or start inputting every code possible starting with 0000, but it's easier to reset the password and disable parental lock using a secret code.
Here is the procedure to reset the parental lock code:
  1. Bring up a screen where the unit asks you to enter in the parental code. You can either insert a restricted disc, or enter the DVD setup menu and go to "parental control" under custom setup.
  2. When the screen asks for the code, press the SELECT button, then enter in the code "7444".
  3. The level adjustment under Parental Control dictates the strictness of the player. The lower the value, the more strict it will be. Either increase the value to lower the restriction, or disable the lock entirely by setting it to "off".
  4. Once you have made your adjustments, be sure that the DVD tray is empty, and press the RESET button on the front of the Playstation 2. It is imperative the tray is clear of any DVD or game for the unit to save your settings.
A note for parents: If you're wondering what is stopping your child from using the above procedure to circumvent your rules, you can verify that they haven't reset the parental control very easily. Since the above procedure eliminates the old password entirely, all you need to do is see if your original password still works. If it does, they did not use the above procedure to break the rules. If it doesn't, they might be trying to pull the wool over your eyes.

I bought a system from a co-worker who up-graded to a PS3... he had a parental block o it for his children... I wanted to watch a DVD on it and it asked for a pass-word... I called my co-worker but he...


Here it is better give me 5 stars for this one :)

Power off your PlayStation 2, and place a DVD into the disc drive. You can reset and turn off parental controls only through the DVD menu, not within the game menu.
  • Step 2 Start the DVD, and wait for the message informing you that the movie is classified as beyond the "Parental Control Level" and asking if you still want to play the movie. Select "Yes," and click "X."
  • Step 3 Click "Select" on the screen that prompts you to input your password. The screen will change to the "Delete Password" menu.
  • Step 4 Enter 7444 as your password, and then click "X." This is the override password and will result in the deletion of any previous passwords.
  • Step 5 Press "Select" to return to the password entry menu. Choose a four-digit number to enter as your new password. If you're going to disable parental controls for good, enter 0000, as this will be the easiest to remember and enter. Repeat the entry when it asks for confirmation.
  • Step 6 Click "Select" when the move begins to play. Use the directional pad to select "Setup" from the menu that appears. Next choose "Parental Controls." Change the level to "Off," and exit the menu. Your parental controls are now turned off.

    Parental lock on cannot open it


    Actually its, 'select' then '7444', and all that does is reset the password.
    Press the SELECT button and enter the 4-digit number "7444" whenever the Parental Control display asks you for your password. The old password is deleted.
    You will then be prompted to enter a new password, enter whatever number you want, something like 0000, or a number that is easy to remember. If you wish to turn it off, just set it to off and forget about passwords.
    Notes
    - When you play DVDs which do not have the Parental Control function, playback cannot be limited on this player.
    - If you do not set a password, you cannot change the settings for playback limitation.
    - Depending on the DVD, you may be asked to change the parental control level while playing the disc. In this case, enter your password, the change the level. When you stop playing the DVD, the playback limitation level returns to the original setting.

    After changing DVD settings:
    To save your changes, be sure to eject the DVD before pressing the RESET button or turning off the unit with the MAIN POWER switch. Please note that changes will not be saved if you reset or turn off the console without first ejecting the DVD.
