There's NOTHING you can do.

Only PS3 games are region free. Blu-ray movies, DVD movies, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation games still have region encoding.

IF it's a dvd then you can use dvdshrink to remove region restrictions.

BUT other than that there is nothing you can do until the PS3 is hacked. It's been 4 years and still nada so don't hold your breath.

I bought my ps3 from USA and got some game disc from Australia (region 4) it doesn't work,a message pops up when i press start (cannot play on current video settings, but i was told that ps3 games are...


PS3 games are region locked to the Blu-Ray standards where the game was bought. I doubt that Sony will change this, because they are one of the major backers behind the region standards. Your best bet to play the game is to softmod your PS3 (risky) or to hardmod it with a modchip (vaguely illegal, warranty voiding, ect.)

I have a panasonic dvd player model no: DMR EX78 I live in south east Melbourne Australia and have purchased a few dvds from Amazon, sometimes I get a message saying something about regions, I spoke to my...


The problem with Amazon DVDs purchased is the region codes each disc may contain. Since a majority of them would be from USA, and their region is 1, your player being region 4 would not support that code.

There is no fault here, it is just a restriction. Some discs work, some don't.

No one likes region restrictions - particularly on DVDs bought legally, and I doubt very much Panasonic would provide any information on unlock codes for you.

Be warned: if you do successfully find a hack to unlock your player so it becomes region-less, expect the risk of either the player failing later, or not reading any discs at all. I am sure there are 'region-free' players around now, which don't contain a restriction and can play ANY DVD any region.

On the other hand, if you have a DVD drive on your PC, and it is set to region 0 or all regions, and the discs play fine in it, but not the player, then you could view those particular discs that way; you do not need to make any copies of any of the DVDs just to watch them.

System doesn't read disc when inserted


this can be due to three reasons
first you should know that the ps3 have certain discs they read depending on the region of your ps3. for example a european 3 may read discs with any region code depending on which region it was originally manufactured for.
you should also put in mind that you can check for the region of your ps3 by connecting it to the internet and going to online help under the web in the XMB or going to the carton of your console and looking at the lower right corner(a semi-globe with a number written above, also you can check the region of your disc by looking at the back of your ps3 disc casing(on the side you have playstation 3 written in full,it is usually like a globe sign with a number)
now, the problem might be one of the following and their solutions are given under
1.....you are probably trying to play a disc with a region code note compatible with your ps3 console system, make sure they match or they are compatible and if not this could be the cause but if they match, try the disc on another system and another disc on your system(this would help you narrow down to know if your console or disc is bad)
2....if it still doesnt work, your console lens is probably bad and it is best adviced that you send it to a repairer or back to sony(if you can)because the lens is packed in a very difficult way that any mistake could damage it permanently and as this could void your warranty.hope this helped you?

PS3 BLU-RAY DVD PLAYER REGION FREE


This is because you bought the ps3 from america, it will not let you play anything you buy from europe, i had this problem when i was in germany too i had bought the ps3 in michigan and tried to play in germany and got the same exact error code. i just ordered all my games from amazon. but eventually bought a new ps3 from their region. i dont know why sony does this i personally think it is to stop illegal burning via the internet.

Region B


Hi.. I have not come accross any way to unlock the region restrictions yet (not saying a code or fix does not exist just not come to my attention) so you may have to buy another player and unless you are willing to have two players side by side a multiregion is your only option (two side by side could be your original left as it is and a new one with the region fixed to USA)

Region restriction code


Well, whatever location you set your playstation should set the region when you created your account. I don't believe they are hardlocked to regions. You could try adjusting the settings in the xmb, there are options for region control.

Hope this helps.

PS3 region code


Yes you can.. Blu-ray discs are not region coded.. However if you trying to play a DVD or any other format disc then it would not be possible since these are region coded.. However the PS3 games are region free.. can be bought from anywhere and played anywhere..

Hope this helps!!
