DVD player DS306A problem. I am trying to hack my DVD player as I have a disc it won't play as it says wrong regional disc. I have Google and found I can hack via my remote but its not working. I have been told to - Turn Dvd player on Open tray Press Setup press the volume up and down buttons repeatedly until a 2 appears at the top right of the screen use the Fast Foward (not skip) button to scroll until the number changes to 255 press Setup again Now you should be multi-regional! Only thing is when I get to the part where it shows a 2 I cannot get the fast forward button to scroll or do anything. Please can anyone help, I'm do frustrated with this. Thanks.

SOURCE: My remote control cannot work on rewind, fast forward or comerical skip. The DVD screen display SET 1.

Hello, I had the same problem and after spending a few hours reading and trying things, I found a solution. Its very simple. Power on your unit (manually) and then on your remote control push and hold at the same time"enter" and the number "1" while pointing directly to your unit and this should solve the problem. Good luck.

Region code


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

There are computer programs capable of remove the region code from a DVD, but the result should be burned on a new DVD. Most players don't allow a change in the region code more than once. So on your player nothing to hack. Sorry

For all other options, please use Google.

I WANT TO CONVERT MY TOSHIBA SD501 KB DVD PLAYER INTO A MULTI-REGION PLAYER. HOW CAN I ACCOMPLISH THIS TASK?


Hi,
On most of the DVD players regional set up cannot be changed.However just for trying; type your players brand and model number into goggle along with 'hack code' and you should be able to find some codes to change the region code on your player.You need to find the correct 'Hack' for your model.
Google 'DVD Hacks', there are many sites out there that will provide the details.
It generally consists of pressing a secret sequence of buttons on the remote.
Like holding the mute button down and simultaneously pressing 6758, they are all different.
It then enters a special mode where you can change the DVD region or make it region free.
In my experience the major brands like Sony, Sharp, JVC, Toshiba,Panasonic etc are harder to change, I guess the major players do not want copyright issues.
The cheaper DVD players as unbranded, or never heard of, are better.They are all "MULTI REGION " or "region free "players play any region dvd.

-------
additional info for DVD regions:
DVD region codes are a digital-rights management technique
designed to allow film distributors to control aspects of a release, including
content, release date, and price, according to the region.DVD video discs may be
encoded with a region code restricting the area of the world in which they can
be played.

The American DVD Copy Control Association in California requires that DVD-player
manufacturers incorporate the regional-playback control (RPC) system - according
to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, an Australian government
agency.

There are six different official regions and two informal variations.[citation
needed] DVDs may use one code, a combination of codes (Multi-Region), most
codes (Region 0) or every code/no codes (Region All). The commercial DVD player
specification requires that a player to be sold in a given place not play discs
encoded for a different region; however, region-free DVD players are also
commercially available.

I HAVE A DISC IN U.K. AND EUROPE REGION . BUT CAN'T PLAY MY DVD PLAYER. HOW CAN I PLAY THE DISC IN OUR PLAYER? MODEL IS DVP 3256 ,DVP 3258,DVP 3268 . WITH USB . ANY OPTION TO PLAY THE OTHER REGION DISC....


HELLO
This sounds like the old problem of your player trying to play a disc from another region, when your player is set for another. What you need to do is HACK the player and set it for ALL REGIONS (0), usually via the remote control.
Try this website for DVD player hacks: www.videohelp.com
You will find hacks for many makes and models listed here. Contrary to belief, it is NOT illegal to hack a DVD player.

What does wrong region mean? the player refuses to read and play certain cd's , it says,"wrong region".


It means The Disk Was Not Created In your country. They do this to make more money. Now if its a dvd player then you may be able to make it region free and play it just give me the model number. But if its a c.d you'll have to use your computer to make a copy of it.

I cant play my moovies it will say region error how come?


Some DVD players have region coding only allowing discs to play specific to that country (or region) only . If you lucky you might find region hack online to re-program your player - just type <model number> region hack into Google. The alternative is internal modification which can be expensive - buying a region-free player would be cheaper.

I have a region 2 samsung dvd player. All of a sudden the following message displays: '' Can not play disk. Wrong region code'' We have been playing the dvd for more than 1 year. What is the problem? Same...


What follows is mostly generic advice which applies to the vast majority of DVD players which I've tinkered with.

Your problem normally only happens if someone else has played a different region coded DVD on your machine. Normally you get seven chances to reset the region code before the machine locks itself permanently to one of them. before the changes are permanent the player will usually ask you if you want to change the region code when you try to play a disc from the wrong region.

Before doing anything else it's worth asking other members of your household if they have recently used the player, especially if you know anyone may have been using imported discs. If they've used up all of the region changing opportunities then hacking the machine might not work at all.

If you use a search engine you can search for DVD-P181 hack and these will guide you through the process to make your DVD player a multi-region machine, but there are three different hacks which I've seen for the same player so you may need to try them all.

Disk region incorrect message pops up


It's not the dvd; it's your player. I'm answering my own question. I did a search and found a code that needs to be set into my dvd player. So do a google search asking "wrong region" and the name of your dvd player. Someone is sure to have hacked through the problem and is more than willing to tell you how to fix it. Worked for me! Why does this even happen?
