Question about Pioneer VSX-D608 Receiver

1 Answer

DVD MALFUNCTION The DVD player is diplaying a NO NUM message on the display window, initialy, which then turns to REGION. On the TV screen the following message is displayed: (Player's Region Setting), followed by <1>: Region up to <6>: Region, then at bottom of message written Pick out any one of these! The problem is that you can't pick any region as they are not clickable and all the buttons of the remote don't work except for volume control and 'System Setup'. When DVD holder is opened then the 'Home Menu' button works with limited functions. Therefore, due to this all DVDs can't play excepting those with automatic start.

DVDs and CDs are formated with regional encoding 1-6. If your player does not support the format, it will not play the disk. You might try looking up your brand/model player online to see if it has a regional patch code which you can enter via remocon.

When i put in a dvd i get a message wrong region,is there a fix for this problem

You should be able to unlock all regions on your standalone DVD player using a series of keys on the remote this will unlock it to region 0

1. Switch on the DVD and open the tray.

2. From remote . Press four times zero : 0000 + (the digit for corresponding region , e.g 1 for region 1 , 2 for region 2 and similarly ----- 0 for region free
(This means if you want region free settings then u need to press 00000 or for region 1 : 00001)

3. Message will be displayed on screen saying region 0 which means the DVD is region free !!

You can check the region by open the tray and pressing the display button on the remote

I suggest you try THIS is the above doesn't work

Can i make it region free?


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.

Regional code

4.- PRESS ENTER UNTIL SHOW "Region code: 9" (Region Free)


1-Turn on your DVD player.
2-Open the tray.
3-Press 9 five times, you will see a number (for me it was 6, you'll see it on the screen, where the DVD displays all messages, like a blue bar up top) then I pressed 9 a few more time until the number being displayed there turned to a 9, when it does then press enter, now it's region free.

I have the same problem with my XV-DV333. Search on inet and this came up: "... Pick Out One Of These! But I am unable to select any region using the remote control or the buttons on the player. What do I do? You need to get a Pioneer Service Remote. When you have it you should press: [ESC] [A.MON] [Numbers], where [Numbers] correspond to the region number you want to set. Be aware that you can only set this once, if you set the wrong region number for your area, there is no turning back. " WTF! Am I supposed to get a service remote to get this thing working again. I haven't done anything and it worked before:/
