The home theater player does not recognize some blu rays - only as unknown discs


If it played them before it could be a fault on the disc player. If it hasn't played the disc before, they code be the wrong region code. Even blu ray discs have region codes. If it plays several blu ray discs, but doesn't play the odd one. Check the odd one for finger prints or dirt or marks on the disc. Clean the disc, if it has them and try it again.

Keep getting unsupported when I put disc in


Not all disc players will play all the different types on the market. Some DVD's will only play in certain areas of the world. This is called region coding. The number of this is found on the back of the player and on the disc or case it comes with. If you have a region 2 player it can only play 2 discs. It is possible to make some DVD players play another region or all. Search the web for information on how to change the region code on your model DVD player.
Another thing that will cause that response is using a "+" or "-" disc type in a machine that can only play one type.
Yet another cause is dirt on the disc or lens of the player.

Apparently they are locked to region 4 and I have bought region 1 DVDs so they won't play


In most models the unit cannot converted to multi-regions.So it will play only in the specified region in which it is applicable to.But in some unit models there is a procedure to turn the unit to multi region so it can play all region dvd.On all models the procedure to convert the unit to multi region is different.As you have not mentioned the exact model number of your unit.t will not be easy to give exact details.If in case there is a procedure to convert your unit to multi region.

Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

I put in a cd to play a movie and it will not read it, it tells me "wrong region".


That means the dvd you have does is not set to the same region as your player. DVD discs and players are sold in different areas of the world under different "Regions" Do a google search on DVD regions for a better understanding. Your options as I see them are to take the disc back and ask for the proper region or see if your dvd player can be set to "region free" so it can play any dvd from anywhere in the world.

Have dvd that say check regional code how do i do this ?


sounds like you have purchased the wrong region coded dvd`s when you bought them from amazon? if you are in the US you can only play Region 1, Europe is Region 2 and so on. Unless you purchase a mlti region machine which is obviously not what you want to do then the only other play of playing the wrong region discs is to buy a cheap dvd player which has "DivX" compatability which will play any region for you.

There is nothing wrong with it, it is set to only play in the region it was purchased from. That is how all DVD players are made, with regional settings. No repair is going to help, you just need a DVD player from the proper region to play those disc's.
