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"

How do you change the region code to europe on a philips DCP850/37 portable dvd player. I have done in once but its now saying wrong region and i cant remember how to do it. Please help


its quite easy actually

1.) Press setup

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.

good luck.

I bought a movie diff region and i have a dvp1013 canregionchange


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.

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.

WRONG Region error . Philips DVD65K


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.

Can you change region settings on dvd players?


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

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!
