It is not possible to unlock region codes. Most DVD (blue ray players) allow you to change the region code you can play, once. You can't even switch back to the original code it was set when you bought it.
If you really want to play disks, the only way to get around this, to rip the disc on a computer, and burn it on the computer, region free. For that you need special program m's, but in some countries you can get these programs for free.
Or buy several players, each set to a different region.

I need the region code for tedelex ted7s dvd/vhs combo


see this and proceed . God bless you
Manufacturers of DVDs and DVD players install codes that only allow us to play DVDs that are manufactured for our region. (For example, the U.S. and Canada are region 1, while China is region 6.) To make your DVD player region-free, you'll need to find the unlock codes that will allow it to play DVDs from all over the world. Below are some steps to help make your DVD player region-free.

I have a panasonic dvd player model no: DMR EX78 I live in south east Melbourne Australia and have purchased a few dvds from Amazon, sometimes I get a message saying something about regions, I spoke to my...


The problem with Amazon DVDs purchased is the region codes each disc may contain. Since a majority of them would be from USA, and their region is 1, your player being region 4 would not support that code.

There is no fault here, it is just a restriction. Some discs work, some don't.

No one likes region restrictions - particularly on DVDs bought legally, and I doubt very much Panasonic would provide any information on unlock codes for you.

Be warned: if you do successfully find a hack to unlock your player so it becomes region-less, expect the risk of either the player failing later, or not reading any discs at all. I am sure there are 'region-free' players around now, which don't contain a restriction and can play ANY DVD any region.

On the other hand, if you have a DVD drive on your PC, and it is set to region 0 or all regions, and the discs play fine in it, but not the player, then you could view those particular discs that way; you do not need to make any copies of any of the DVDs just to watch them.

Will not play dvds


  • make sure to use lens cleaner to ensure DVD player is free of dust and dirt on laser lens
  • another cause would be that your DVD player is no multi-region or not region free, because many DVDs have region settings. in order to make your philips DVD player region free (can play all region DVDs) check link below:

Multi region code for philips hts 3090 dvd player


With your set on and without disc in the tray:

1. Press PLAY from your remote control
2. Press the following button sequence: 1590 2379 390
3. Press PLAY again

This will release the region verification in your home theater (region free). However, some DVDs (multiregion in particular) will not play, since they require region detection from the player unit.

I've done this to my 3090 and been using it like this for 3 years.

Philips 7" DVD portable player


The PET702 will be a region 5 machine, whereas the UK DVDs are region 2.

DVD players from a particular region are designed to play only DVDs from the same region, due to copyright and distribution rights in each country or region.

However the PET702 can have the region protection removed by making it multi-region:

Switch on the PET702 and Open the tray.

Press SETUP button on the remote control, which will bring up the menu.

Highlight "PREFERENCES" and press OK.

Press [2], [5], [2], [3], [1], [5], [LEFT], [DOWN]

The screen will show: "Region Code: 2"
Press [1-6] to manually set the region OR [0] for multi-region.
coolsmiley.gif
Press [SETUP] to exit winksmiley.gif

You will now be able to play DVDs from anywhere in the world.

This is particularly useful, because region 1 DVDs from the US often come out when the movies are still in the cinemas over here. Region 1 DVDs can be bought perfectly legally by mail order or from the internet.

Incorrect region codde


This is for DVP31XXX series i hope it works all on DVP31 series. It has been tested on DVP3146K /51 and it has been worked...


1. Make sure there is no disc in the player.
2. Turn power off and on again.
3. Open the tray.
4. On the remote, hit 9879 and then 0. This changes unit to Region 0, meaning it'll play all regions.
5. Hit OK on the remote.

Good Luck Guys!
