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.

If it is new, best advice is to take it the Comapny Service Centre, as you are having Warranty.

SOURCE: undefined region comes up when I insert any disc into my dvd play

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.

  1. Switch on, wait for "no disc"
  2. Enter 11233543254346
  3. Switch off

SOURCE: region code for sanyo progressive scan 7200

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

IGNORE THEM

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

Wrong region


probably you are trying to play a disc that is not zone free or you need a code for your player to make it zone free. you may be playing a zone 2 disc ( PAL) on a machine that only takes zone 1 (NTSC) or vica-versa.

Multi region code for GPX PDL 705 portable DVD player


I hope this helps^^ try it and gimme a shout!

Turn on power.
Open lid.
Push 9 7 3 5 from the remote.
Select 0 using arrow keys.
Exit Setup.
Done.

The one above did work me, only that after one turns on the player, enter in the 9735 with the remote and press 'enter', you can choose between making your player region-free or a different region in addition to R1. Select the desired region unlock and press 'enter'.

Make sure you check the bottom of the DVD player to see if it was manufactured in the first quarter of 2007, that might factor in whether the code can work or not.

DVD Player D1816 shows Wrong Regional Disc message


Many DVD players are preset to one region and if you use a DVD destined for any other region, the player will refuse to play. Some players have the option to change this to universal mode. Check your player's manual if yours has this facility.

Yes. You can play VCD movies and and Audio CDs on most players.

Philips DCP750/37 shows "wrong region"


Australian players are designed only to play Region 4 discs. United States discs are Region 1. It is illegal to change the Region code on a DVD player, so I can't tell you how to do it (ironically, it is the most frequently asked question about dvd players on Fixya.com - global world), but there are videos on YouTube that will show you how to do it - I would just enter "philips region code dvd" as your seacrh term. You won't find that exact model, but one of the codes in the video should work. Note that you will only be able to change the region code three times on a Philips - after that you will be locked out. So change it to Region 1 once, and never change it again.
