Re: DVD playback problems

Did you buy these DVD's out of the country? Are they burned? did you pick English and the United States of America when you set up the dvd player? Try unplugging the player for an hour, plugging in and resetting everything up

Hi have a Samsung DVD Player and i get a Region Error Message.

When a DVD disc is created, it is encoded with a "Region number." The disc will only play on DVD players with the same Region number - for instance, a Region 3 disc won't play on a Region 1 player.
Region 1: U.S. and U.S. Territories, Canada
Region 2: Japan, Western Europe, Middle East, South Africa
Region 3: South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southeast and East Asia Region 4: New Zealand, Australia, Pacific Islands, Mexico, Central/
South America
Region 5: Russia and the former Soviet Union, Africa, Indian
subcontinent, North Korea Region 6: China
The only way to get around the region codes, is to rip a DVD to your computer and remove the region code. Then burn the DVD to a DVD R. There are programs around on the net, but I'm not sure it is legal in all countries.
Google for the programs.
A DVD player sometimes allows you to change the region code once. But it not even would allow you to switch back after you changed it once.

How to make my Samsung HT-BD8200 region free?

1. Open the disc tray and remove any discs
2. Close the disc tray
3. Switch Off Player and Unplug from mains wait minimum 30 seconds - this resets the memory, and RAM of the DVD/BlueRay
4. Make sure your TV is on as usual, and Reconnect to mains
5. Turn on your DVD/Blueray player with remote and wait for the "no disc" message to appear
6. PS! As quickly as possible, using your controller press - ENTER 8 4 2 6 9 ENTER
7. You have been successful when a blue box appears in the top left-hand side of the TV Screen, displaying the message "DVD Region Free"

You may have to attempt the "ENTER 8 4 2 6 9 ENTER" sequence several times before you get the Region Free message if you're not quick enough.

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 can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Make sure that the disc you are using are region 1. To check the disc region, look on the spine of the dvd. It should say NTSC region one. You can also download software to change the firmwar of the player to region free. Or your player may already have the capability built in. Go into your menu and check for region settings. If it has them, it should be set to "one" Se it to all regions and it will play any region disc.

Check area code at your unit and usualy its printed at back side. If your unit belongs to code 1, it will play only region code 1 dvds and so on other codes.

Region codes reset

hi juferrer,i guess the dvd u have brought is from a foreign one. Region coding is how Hollywood studios stagger dvd movie releases across the planet. These codes ensure that one country doesn't get a DVD movie before the same movie is out in that country's theatres. In their corporate omniscience, movie studios have carved the planet into regions with each region having a specific code.

All DVD players and discs have region codes. A DVD player and disc must be of the same region or the disc will not play.

If you want to watch movies from other countries, you need a multiregion DVD player. This will allow you to play any disc from any region. However, because TV standards differ, you might need a specialized NTSC/SECAM/PAL TV or a DVD player that can output any signal to the standard your TV accepts.hope u get the point.
