The region code is changed by the firmware in your drive, not the software. Go to my computer and right-click your drive, then look at the properties. Go to the hardware tab, click your dvd drive, then go to the DVD Region tab. Note that you can change the region a limited number of times on most drives before it is set permanently.

What does playing up mean? We have only used this DVD system once so wouldn't think we should have to replace it.


Need more info to resolve. Where did you see "playing up" message. You used the player only 1 time literally? Players have a 5 change limit on the country code. If you had problems playing a DVD and changed the country code (choice 1 to 5), maybe accidentally, you may have locked it into a code you cant use. What DVD dis you use (and what country code was it)? The DVD should tell you but it may be very small letters, maybe around the inside or outside edge.

I have the 5083 dvd player, but it only seems to play region 2 dvds. I've tried going through the menus, but it asks for a country code. The codes are two letters A-Z. I'm assuming that there's...


The Country Code is just related to the Subtitles etc and nothing to do with the Region.
Most DVD Players/Recorders are set to Play the Region of DVD from the Country they were purchased from. Only some are Region Free (will play DVDs from any Country) when purchased.

Some DVD Players/Recorders can be changed to Region Free by simply entering a code on the Remotes handset or by following instructions to enter a Service Menu and change it their.

Unfortunately yours can only be changed by updating the Firwmare which is a risky and difficult process even if you know what you're doing. I wouldn't advise anyone to try it without previous experience as you could render your DVD Player/Recorder useless.

I relocated to Brisbane , Australia from Durban , South Africa with my Teac PL-D2100 (Euro 2) and it does not play DVDs here. Wrong Region displayed. The Teac system was bought in Durban, RSA. I cannot...


DVD manufacturers are only allowed by Hollywood to let their players play DVD's from the country that the unit is purchased from. To get around this some hackers have broken into the operating systems of the player and change the system so that it will play DVD's from any countries. Nor all players have these codes, and not all players of one model number will have the same code work on them.

You can try the following steps out and they might change your unit so that it will play any DVD. It's important that you know if you do try the process and it does change the player your warranty will be voided. Here are the steps:

1. "POWER ON"

2. Open DVD tray.

3. Using the remote control, press "VOLUME^" button.

4. Press the "AUDIO" button. Region Code 2 will be displayed on TV.

5. PRESS CURSOR UP/DOWN "V" button until Region Code Number on TV screen changes to "0".

6. Press "ENTER" button to store.

7. "POWER OFF" and then "POWER ON".

Region error, it is not reading all dvds


US DVDs are encoded region 1 (one). Other countries use different reason codes, to help prevent copyright piracy. Uncoded DVD's that will work everywhere are region 0 (zero).

There is a way to change the region code of your DVD player, but be forewarned- you are only allowed to change it twice... a third region change will permanently disable your DVD player. You need to check your manual to see how to do this, but my advice is to not change it and only buy DVD's that use your country region code.

My Presario CQ61 has changed DVD zones the maximum number of times allowed. It is now set to a zone that prohibits me playing anything from Australia.


Copied from somwhere else...

I came across a web site called DVDRhelp.com which tells how to reset the region codes for software DVD players.
http://www.dvdrhelp.com/play
" Q: How do I make my DVD drive region free (remove region codes/country codes/zone locks)?
A: Use DVD Region-Free to make your region locked DVD drive and your software player region free. You can also 'patch' your DVD drives firmware, you can also try a patched DVD drive firmware (it is freeware, but may be a bit tricky and 'dangerous').
http://www.dvdidle.com/dvd-region-free.htm

Q: How do I make WinDVD,PowerDVD,Win2k region free?
A: Use DVD Region-Free to make your software player region free. Or use DVD Genie (freeware) to make your software DVD Player region free.

Side note: firmware is "miniature" software which runs an electronic device. Some electronic devices have updatable firmware that can be downloaded from the manufacturer's web site and re-programmed into the device. This is referred to as flashing the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) or EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory). A word of warning: if a firmware upgrade is interrupted due to a power outage or computer freezeup, the device may cease to function.

My JVC DR-M78BU will not play DVDs with a country code of 1. On the back, it has a globe with a 1 in it. It will play Japanese DVDs but not American. I don`t get it. Please help...


Somebody changed the country code on that player. BTW, it is illegal to change the country code on a DVD player. I would call JVC and see if they can fix it - usually they wouldn't, but since your player clearly has a 1 on the back, then they may have a solution.

The following is for illustrative purposes - these are NOT the codes/procedures to unlock your JVC - I merely post them to show you how one might go about changing the codes on your JVC player - once again, this is not the right procedure for your particular JVC player:
To select an alternative region for this player:
  • Press the Power button on the player to turn it off.
  • Wait 5 seconds.
  • Press and hold the buttons DVD Menu and On Screen on the player together, and then press the Power button on the player to turn it back on.
  • Release the DVD Menu and On Screen buttons.
  • Press the Standby button on your player, the display should now show either "TEST 2", "TEST 4" or "TEST 6" depending on the player region.
  • Press the DVD Menu button on your player twice in a row, the display should now show "000 5858".
  • By pressing the Up and Down cursors buttons, change the first three digits until they read "02E".
  • By pressing the Right and Left cursors buttons, change the last four digits until they read "0000" for Region Free, "0101" for Region 1, "0202" for Region 2, "0404" for Region 4.
  • If you experience difficulties with Region 4 discs, change the above setting to "0458" and make sure that PAL or NTSC is correctly set on your player.
  • Press the Enter button on your player to confirm the region change.
  • Press the Standby button on the player to turn it off.
  • Wait 5 seconds.
  • Press the Standby button on the player to turn it on.

1. Make sure there is no disc in the player.
2. Turn power off and on again.
3. Open the tray.
4. On the remote, hit 9879 and then 0. This changes unit to Region 0, meaning it'll play all regions.
5. Hit OK on the remote.

Good Luck Guys!
