I need a way to play dvd's from China. My wife brought her english training dvd's from china but we can not use them on a region 1 dvd. My dvd drive is a matshita DVD +- RW UJ890

Hi, you are partly correct, your region 1 player is also in NTSC format, other regions are in PAL format...... So even if you converted your player to multi region or bought a multi region player it still would not play a PAL disk which the Chinese disks would be! The only way you could do this is to buy a multi region PAL/NTSC format DVD player.

Isn't playback automatic? Did you check the user manual page 47?
It explains how to change TV system from Auto to NTSC to Pal, but
the manufacturer recommends leaving the player on the default setting because changing the region may restrict the kinds of discs you may be able to watch.

  • PAL or MULTI-SYSTEM TV is required to watch PAL DVDs. If your TV was purchased in North America (NTSC) you will also need a Video Scaler Full HD 1080p.

    I cant unlock my ps2 console to watch a region 1 dvd and ive tried some unlocks but they wont work

    make sure your console has the ability to read region 1 discs in the first place.
    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.

    If you forgot the parental control code and you need to unlock that, though, then try this:
    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.

    it depends on whether the drive is multi-region ?
    Some drives are region Set, i.e Region 1 ( NTSC-USA )
    Region 2 ( UK PAL )
    Most Players Are Region Set, To the country they are purchased in, you can sometimes set the player to become, multi-region, via various buttons on the remote or by the front panel.
    I offer a service to unlock 99% of DVD Players, to play all or many regions.
    We do have a charge for this Service.
    Many Thanks mike @ Compurepair.
