My player is giving me a messege on the screen saying that the dvd is not compatible with this player.  The only problem is that its a legitemate dvd ( not bootleg) and I was just playing this same movie two days ago.  I received this messege after I unplugged it and connected it to a different T.V.

Have you tried that dvd in another player?
Have you tried another dvd in your player?
Since this began after you moved it, do some backtracking.
If someone quit AFTER I did...such and such, then THAT is most likely the cause.
I have solved many problems by backtracking.

Trying to play dvd but says wrong region soneynhv-dx350ab?

Hi, if its saying wrong region. then either your player or disk is incompatable. region 1 ntsc ( USA ) Region 2 ( UK ) et,c. check your players region coding is compatable for your country, and that you are also playing a dvd with the same region coding as the player. alternatively is to try and find a region free or multi-region solution.

I have Samsung DVD Video Combo

Make sure the player is switched on, and is at the Samsung logo
screen. Also check the tray is shut and that there's no disc in the

Now press the REPEAT button on the remote, followed by a five digit
code. This code is different depending on what region your player is
*currently* set to:

R1 - 29334
R2 - 38767
R3 - 56732
R4 - 76884
R5 - 53814
R6 - 24462

So for example if you have an R2 player, press REPEAT-3-8-7-6-7.

If you've done this correctly (and your player is compatible with the
hack), you should see a number at the top left corner of the screen
corresponding to the current region.

Now, pressing any number from 1 to 6 will change to the corresponding
region. Or, press 9 for auto-region mode.

Next, press OPEN/CLOSE to open the tray, followed by Standby (or DVD
POWER) on the remote to close it and put the player into Standby mode.
The next time you turn your player on, the new region will be set.
If the above codes don't work try 57538.

Hope this helps.
