We live in america and we can not see american dvd's it keep sending a message thar it is the wrong region how can can i change it to region 1 which is the american

You live in America and you cannot watch a American film here is why:

1. You ether put in a NON-AMERICAN FILM many people do this by proxy when they want to see a LATIN AMERICAN FILM FROM MEXICO PERHAPS?

2. Or the DVD laser is not picking up the TOC "table of contents" this means repair is in order.

3. Or some body was playing around with the player with some other types of discs that might not been able to be read in the player.

All after witch this sampo player is past its prime.

Pe 705 is saying wrong region when yo try to play a dvd

The solution depends on where you bought your dvd player, certain dvds are released in north america or japan, etc, and they have different 'region codes' - meaning they can only be played by devices that have a matching code. To clarify, if you bought your dvd player in america, chances are you can only play dvds released in north america. For more information on region codes please go to

Hi camonk2004,

It's interesting that your DVD player was purchased in Russia but plays Region 1 DVDs. Region 1 is North America. Does your Player also play Russian DVDs (region 5)? If so, then it has probably been modified to play DVDs from multiple regions.

Check the back side of the DVD player - the rear panel should have a Region number on it. If the region number is 1, then try playing a Region 5 DVD. If it reads the DVD, then the modification that was done in Russia will probably allow it to read any DVD. IF the Region 5 DVD won't play (or if it is ejected automatically), then your player's region control os still intact, and it will only play DVDs from the same region as the one listed on the rear panel of the player (or DVDs marked "ALL").

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind Regards,

How can I unlock my dvd player to play American dvds please?

I think it is against the law for shops in the UK to sell multi-region DVD players. I could not find a hack for this player that worked.
It is possible to convert it on your PC and burn it as a region free Disc.
