Re: cant reset the region on my philips DVD736K player
Please rate my solution if this works:
1. Press the tray "open" button on the DVD player.
2. Enter the following numbers slowly on the remote control "1111" - 'note you will see nothing on the screen'
3. Press "0" on the remote (take note of TV screen to ensure you
select the right number. TV should show " New region 0" in top left
hand corner of screen.)
4. Press "open/close"

Check current region code Open the Philips HOME Screen Type on your remote: 8520 This will display all of the current settings for your player. Example: Region_Code: DVD(2) BD(B)Change region code Turn on player with no disk inserted Press "Open/Close" on the remote control until the tray is open Press 8689310 - 0 means all region Press 8689311 - 1 means region 1, Press 8689312 - 2 means region 2, Press 8689313 - 3 means region 3, Press 8689314 - 4 means region 4, Press 8689315 - 5 means region 5, Press 8689316 - 6 means region 6. Now the front Buttons might not work! Go to SETUP and click on RESET FACTORY SETTINGS Wait until the player restarts and now you can play all DVD regions
2.) select preferences to go to the preferences page
3.) enter 9 6 5 3
4) select your region
personally I set my players to 0 meaning region free ,, this means that it can player any movie from anywhere without having to setup region any more. Region free players are the best. I'd suggest you set yours to 0 as well therefore you will never have to set up your region again and u can play anything.
DVD's are made in different region codes as they are intended to be played on specific types of DVD players. As far as I am aware there is no way to change the region code of a DVD.
However, your DVD player maybe able to bypass the region code through a type of "hack"; you might search online for your specific DVD player.
A DVD drive on your computer may also be able to play the DVD although you may need to further research specific software players. You should be able to find some freeware that would enable you to play your DVD on your computer assuming your drive can read DVD's.
Another option is to buy a region-free (also known as an all-region) DVD player. Although they are a bit more expensive than a regular DVD player, region-free means you never have to worry about software fixes or trying to reconfigure your current DVD player. Online sellers abound the most well known probably including Amazon and YesAsia (a site that specializes to selling Asian merchandise overseas).
Hope this helps, I was a little vague in places. Basically you can't change the DVD so much as the DVD player.
Each DVD player is designed only to read discs froma certian region of the globe, and they are labelled 1 through 6 (or ALL). Australian players are designed only to play Region 4 discs. United States discs are Region 1. It is illegal to change the Region code on a DVD player, so I can't tell you how to do it (ironically, it is the most frequently asked question about dvd players on Fixya.com - global world), but there are videos on YouTube that will show you how to do it - I would just enter "philips region code dvd" as your seacrh term. You won't find that exact model, but one of the codes in the video should work. Note that you will only be able to change the region code three times on a Philips - after that you will be locked out. So change it to Region 1 once, and never change it again.
some dvds enable you to manually change the setting to '0' which will allow you to watch any region dvds. Have you not looked in the manual that came with it? If you have no manual what is the model number and I will see what I can do
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.
