On our DVD-player, Pioneer DV-757Ai, it has a 2 marked on the backpanel for region 2. In the manual it says that the player also can take other formats, for example region 1 (I think its NTSC-format) and usually for USA and Canada. How can I change the region from 2 to 1? I used got DVD:s from USA, that I really wnat to play.

Introduction The Px4x DVD Upgrade is an advanced modification to your DVD player, which adds extra features and enables you to get more from your machine. The upgrade supplements the DVD player and in no way harms the playback quality or removes any performance features of the DVD player.
Main Features The DVD Upgrade adds the following features to your DVD player: Multiregion capability Macrovision disable
Players Supported The following DVD players are supported by this version of the DVD Upgrade:
Modification Details Multiregion selection Nearly all DVD discs on the market today are encoded with a specific "region" in mind and are made in such a way that a disc designed for "region 1" will not play on a player designed for "region 2". This is so that the Hollywood studios can control the release of titles in different geographical regions all over the world. Our upgrade allows you to select between regions 1 to 6. Macrovision & CGMS disable All DVD players have a system called Macrovision built in to the player, which is designed to stop the copying of DVD discs to video. However, this system can have adverse affects on some projectors. For this reason the DVD Upgrade disables Macrovision to solve any problems.
Operating Instructions You can select the region code by remote. This region will be tried first when playing a disk. Due to this design, the modification will work on the RCE (Regional Code Enhancement) protected DVD’s. In some cases it will be necessary to insert a conventional (non RCE protected) disc before playing a RCE protected disc. Follow the instructions as detailed bellow:
1. Turn the player on without a disc in it 2. On the remote control, press 'SETUP' 3. Use right arrow to select 'General' 4. Use down arrow to select 'Basic' 5. Press 'ENTER' on the remote control 6. Press 'Display' on the remote control You should see the region code and OSD version that the player is set to 7. Press 'Condition/Memory' 8. Press '1', '2', '3', '4', '5' or '6' to change the region code of the player The text will disappear 9. Press ' Display ' on the remote to control the region 10. Press 'SETUP' on the remote to exit. Play the disc This dident work for me but mayby work for you.
My DV-220KV-K, which is sold as a Multi Region DVD player has locked up on me. The following message comes onto the TV screen...
(Player's Region Setting)
<1> : Region
<2> : Region
<3> : Region
<4> : Region
<5> : Region
<6> : Region
Pick out any one of these!
The message remains on the screen ALL the time and I'm locked out of viewing anything. The remote is locked and so I cannot pick any of the region numbers!
Most DVD players I've seen are either multi-regional or one-region units. The DVD player you bought might be a one-region device. I'd check on that first. If it is, then you'll only be able to play DVD's made for that particular region. If it is multi-regional, look in the manual or go to Pioneer's website to possibly find the codes.
hi! try this one i hope it will work on your unit. Remove any disc in the tray, Press the SETUP on the remote control. Move over to GENERAL using the arrow keys; Select BASIC, Press DISPLAY - this will display your region and firmware version. Press CONDITION/MEMORY (nothing is displayed or changed on the screen). Press the REGION # required (i.e. 2 for Region 2 etc). Press MENU to store.
