Recently purchased this product and was told it was multi regional. However I have Uk discs and also us discs and neither will play. I have 3 connections, white,red and yellow from the player to the tv and it works fine but does not want to play any discs. Please could you advise. The message that appears when disc is loadind says that the wrong disc has been inserted and that displays when I put in either a US disc or a UK disc.
Thank you kindly for any assistance you can offer.

Re: dvd player not playing discs
Did you check to see if you had the audio video cables on the dvd player plugged in the right place also you might want to get a s-video cable it is much easier that way not toooo much problem to hook it up you plug it in to your tv and the other part of the cable plugs into your dvd player where it says s-video

The dvds discs u bought from the UK is play on only the DVD player that play PAL signal format. Where u live Canada,US or Mexico?DVD players in these countries.It play only NTSC signal format.U can't change DVD players regions format,only can a DVD players that have regions free to play all DVDs discs of the world.
unfortunately the player is as its supposed to be this is not a fault and there is no upgrade, it plays only the region its meant to play. That palm hack was for another model and most likely will not work with your player.
the omniremote is a program for the palm.
I'm not aware of any hack for this specific model at this time and I think its very unlikely that anyone here would create that upgrade for you, as a tech would have to purchase the player, spend 1-3 days with it to come up with a modification, all that for 4 dollar reward is simply not worth the effort.
Hi, guessing you are from the UK? Different countries operate different regions for dvd's for instance the UK dvd players are set up to play region 2 discs, and US dvd players are set up to play region 1 discs. This is because dvd release dates are different around the world and this stops people buying a dvd in the US and bringing it back to the UK and selling it before its official UK release date for example. Your choices are either to play the dvds on a PC where often the dvd software will allow you to change region a number of times (be careful though as some players will let you change region say 5 times and then be locked to that region) Or to get hold of or buy a multi region dvd player which plkays dvd'd regardless of their original region Hope that makes sense, good luck
I too have this same problem on my current DVD player, AND strangely enough I had the same problem on my previous player.
Previous player was made multi region and was a Sony S660 (I think that was the model number).
My current DVD player is a Denon and was £550! It is also made multi region and has the same problems! I don't get it!
There's a tricky process to follow with the remote control to set the region code. It is:
-Open the player.
-Remove any DVD.
-Close the player.
-Power off the player.
-Wait for 30+ seconds
-Power on the player.
-Press Menu,1,9 on the remote [this frequently takes a few tries].
-When the region screen appears, press enter to change region (Every time you press enter, the region code on the screen will increment by 1).
-When the proper region code is displayed, press Return.
-Open the player.
-Close the player.
-(Maybe just my player) If the player doesn't start the DVD, repeat Open/Close until the DVD starts. If it still doesn't start, power off for 10 minutes.
