Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

Unlocking DVD player

I just bought a cheap Philips DVD player - a DVP 3120 and I can't play any of my DVDs that I brought home from the UK - very distressing!
I have looked on as many unlocking sites as I can find, but none have this particular model - could I try one with a similar model no. or does it have to be specific for this machine?

What video format does this dvd player support.if i write a dvd it is not working in this player

Philips DVP3020 does not support popular vidoe formats such as DivX / xvid / mp4. so if you download movies from the internet and burn to a DVD, chances are it will not work. this philips player is very basic and can only play regular DVDs, VCDs and audio CDs. that is why it is cheap. you should try Philips DVP 3010 or 5140, even better the 5960.

Can't play USA DVDs on a UK purchased product

Go on e-bay and purchase a region free DVD player for cheap. Wait for Christmas and re-gift your UK player to some other poor bastard.

Unlock codes

I have the same issue and called Philips just now. The solution is - make sure there is no disc in your machine, press the setup button, arrow to the preferences pages and highlight but don't enter, type in the number 138931, it will come up with region 4, arrow to change it to 0 and press setup to exit. I certainly hopes this works!
