Question about Philips Televison & Video
I have philips dvp1013 and i bought a korean drama that is region 1 is there any way to change the region code
DVD's are made in different region codes as they are intended to be played on specific types of DVD players. As far as I am aware there is no way to change the region code of a DVD.
However, your DVD player maybe able to bypass the region code through a type of "hack"; you might search online for your specific DVD player.
A DVD drive on your computer may also be able to play the DVD although you may need to further research specific software players. You should be able to find some freeware that would enable you to play your DVD on your computer assuming your drive can read DVD's.
Another option is to buy a region-free (also known as an all-region) DVD player. Although they are a bit more expensive than a regular DVD player, region-free means you never have to worry about software fixes or trying to reconfigure your current DVD player. Online sellers abound the most well known probably including Amazon and YesAsia (a site that specializes to selling Asian merchandise overseas).
Hope this helps, I was a little vague in places.
Basically you can't change the DVD so much as the DVD player.
