It appears we were on chat a while back.

The PAL/NTSC is not possible to switch. It's totally different ways its processed. The over sea's type is faster then the american ntsc type. I've tried to do that before and all you hear is little chipmunks and a very pixel lated picture which you can never see anything at all.

Hi have a Samsung DVD Player and i get a Region Error Message.


When a DVD disc is created, it is encoded with a "Region number." The disc will only play on DVD players with the same Region number - for instance, a Region 3 disc won't play on a Region 1 player.
Region 1: U.S. and U.S. Territories, Canada
Region 2: Japan, Western Europe, Middle East, South Africa
Region 3: South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southeast and East Asia Region 4: New Zealand, Australia, Pacific Islands, Mexico, Central/
South America
Region 5: Russia and the former Soviet Union, Africa, Indian
subcontinent, North Korea Region 6: China
The only way to get around the region codes, is to rip a DVD to your computer and remove the region code. Then burn the DVD to a DVD R. There are programs around on the net, but I'm not sure it is legal in all countries.
Google for the programs.
A DVD player sometimes allows you to change the region code once. But it not even would allow you to switch back after you changed it once.

Hi, my DVD player was bought in Hong Kong, brought it back to England to use. recently, it is not reading discs properly, always say"no disc", no problem to read card though. I am wonder how and...


DVDs are encoded with a "Region Code" to allow studios to control release dates around the world. Hong Kong Region Code is 3, UK is 2. Your player will not play back Region 2 DVDs that you are purchasing or renting in UK. It will work fine with Region Code 3 DVDs I would bet.

Sorry to deliver the bad news.

1) Remove disk (if any) from the player
2) Turn the player off

for players sold in USA)
7) Use Up and Down arrow keys on the remote to select desired region
(0 means region free)
8) Press Enter on the remote. Tray should close.
9) Enjoy

Playing uk dvd's on region 3 PS3


No you can't. At this time it's not possible. You could always make the discs you bought region free by copying them with dvdshrink or another program but as of now there is no hack for the PS3 and probably won't be one for another year.

You could try dual booting the ps3 with linux, but it's probably not worth all the effort.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Best of luck!
