Power on the player with no disk in the drive.
Press "PAUSE" on the remote.
Enter "3 1 4 1 5 9" on the remote (the word CODE appears on the display).
Enter "0" on the remote (0 = All Regions, 1 = Region 1, 2 = Region 2, etc.).

To play any region disc in these players shown below simply follow these instructions.
Open the tray, place an R1 disc on it but don't close it.
On the remote press 0, 1, 2, 3, PLAY.
The tray should then close, if not close it, and the player is now completely region free.

DVD player freezes and jumps

The laser pickup head is at the end of life, overtime it becomes weaker until it can no longer work, or becomes eratic, cheaper to replace the whole system.

I insert a movie from the video store in the dvd player Zenith DVC2550.It got stuck in back and turn table was rotating without picking up the disc. I had open cover to remove the disc. I manage to close...

It sounds like you jammed the door gear which must be closed prior to playback. You can try to take the cover off again and cycle the insert mechanism but if you put much force on it the machine may be destroyed...

Hearing static while the dvd is playing how would i go about cleaning it

I have the Zenith XBV410 (combo dvd/vcr). I cleaned the lens using the Maxell Lens cleaner kit but nothing happened. Then I ran the Progressive Scan Mode and that seemed to do the trick. Word of caution: Progressive Scam Mode is difficult to turn off so would recommend you remove dvd from player, then press and hold the stop button for a min of 5 seconds up until whatever it takes to disablel PSM (Progressive Scan Mode)

You could try clening the laser lens with a damp Q-Tip, also gently turn the spin motor spindle by hand... it should be free. If it's binding or tight then it's bad.
