If you go into your factory settings setup screen check there for what region its set to and if it is possible to change it, change to the correct one.

I want to play Dvd's from Europe so I want a region code free.


1. Power ON the main unit (some unlocks work with, some with no disc inside)
2. Press the SETUP button (on the top of the player) to open the setup menu
3. Navigate to the PREFER menu using the button below the screen
4. Press NEXT>, PREVIOUS, NEXT>, PREVIOUS, NEXT>, NEXT>, aPREVIOUS

(NEXT> and PREVIOUS are on the top of the player next to the SETUP button. Don't use the menu navigation buttons below the screen for this.)

5. The current Region of the player should be displayed on the screen

6. Use the menu navigation UP/DOWN buttons (below the screen) to change the region. Region 0 is region-free.

7. Press PLAY/OK (below the screen) to confirm the region selection

The player should now be unlocked and able to play discs from all regions - it worked on my PD9012/37 that was region 1

Please note: Unlocking a DVD player may invalidate the warranty and some DVD players have been damaged through failed attempts to unlock them. Unlocking the DVD player is attempted at your own risk.

Is it possible to change the region code to region 3 so we can watch movies from Thailand? No need to switch back as I have another DVD on region 1. Charlie (cleggett1937@aol.com)


You can make this player REGION FREE so all discs operate on it.

Power up, no disk in. Status says READ then INSERT DISC.
Press MENU (status reads invalid key icon)
Press 1 (status reads invalid key icon)
Press 9 Menu is displayed.
Press ENTER on the region, digit turns to "-"
Press 0
Press ENTER again
Press EJECT to clear the special menu.

If you reset (unplug) the player for any reason - this will need to be re-entered.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

I insert a disc. It loads, then either 1 or 2 shows in the display, but nothing functions and the disc will not play. It is a region 2 disc I tried


\usually when a disc won`t play ,it just displays "No Disc".

Is the disc matching the dvd code?
Is the region code correct?
Have you checked what discs the dvd will play, in front of manual.

If those are ok the dvd must have condensation in it.
Place in a warm room,turn on and leave for 2-3 hrs
Then try again fingers crossed for you.

My samsung dvd-hr753 comes up with a message saying ''this disc can neither be played or recorded'' when i put in some pre-recorded dvds... what is causing this? how can i fix it? I thought that the...


use the procedure in the link

http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks?dv...HR-753&hits=50

You have to enter a code specifc your region.

Using the Remote:
Make sure there is no DVD in it.
Make sure it's in DVD mode.
Turn it off.
Turn it on.
Wait for it to start up (showing DVD mode in the display)
Press Repeat (for a half a second?).
Enter the code for your region

Region 1 use 2,9,3,3,4,9
Region 2 use 5,7,5,3,8,9
Region 3 use 5,6,7,3,2,9
Region 4 use 7,6,8,8,4,9 <----- try this for region free setting
Region 5 use 5,3,8,1,4,9
Region 6 use 2,4,4,6,2,9

When you get to the second to last digit you *may* see your current region.

When you see "9" appear you have entered the code correctly.
Now be quick and eject and close the DVD drive before it vanishes.

Use the buttons on the machine to open/close the drive.


You have to be confident and quick with your button presses; it's very sensitive to pauses etc. If it does not work the first time keep trying.

Good Luck.

Can i make it region free?


HELLO

Turn on your DVD Player

Press OPEN on remote

Press 1 3 7 9 and the number of the region you want to use between 0 and 6. Use 0 for region free. You may need to press these buttons slowly. You will see XXXX on the TV. When you press the last number, it will display at the top left of the screen.

Now insert a disc (other than your own region) into the player and close it. It should load and play. Other region discs should play as well. If you didn't do it correctly it will display "Wrong Region".

When you turn off the DVD player it will keep the settings.

HOPE THIS HELPS ENJOY (:-)

When I install disk, ' No disk' shows on display.


IS the disc on a CD-R or CD-RW (burnt disc) some portable players will not support those types of disc's.

It could also be a different region dvd that doesnt match the region codes of the dvd player. There are no known region hacks for your make and model of dvd player.

Sorry and thank you for choosing Fixya! Post back with more info for further help.

Displays "No Disc"


It can be several reasons
1. Disk is upside down
2. Lens is durty. CD/DVD cleaning disk will help
3. Disk is in different formate (for instance NTSC for US but you trying to playback disk in PAL)
4. Disk has different region code (look is the dvd player and disk have the same code, or ALL Regions code)
Good Luck
