Question about Sanyo DVW-5000 DVD Player/VCR
I can't not reach the company to fix the problem. Not new DVDs but now the DVD player wont work???????????????????
Posted by Anonymous on
Commercial DVD disks are "keyed" to a specific "region".
USA is in "Region 1", and Europe is in a different region.
Some DVD players allow you to "switch region", but only up to FIVE times, and then it "locks" into one region.

A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
The service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

This may be because it is region locked. The following will make the player region free and possibly solve your problem. By making your player region free you MAY be voiding any warranty the player has on it.

For that you need to do a google for "mymodel region free" or "region free hack"
Not all dvd players are capable of this often very simple modification (usually just involves the remote control and a combination of keys)
Your search will turn up a lot of sharks that want money for the hack
There are a lot of sites where the information is free.
I am unsure of FIXYA's policy on this topic so would prefer not to get my @ss kicked. That is why I gave you the search terms rather than site links
