What follows is mostly generic advice which applies to the vast majority of DVD players which I've tinkered with.

Your problem normally only happens if someone else has played a different region coded DVD on your machine. Normally you get seven chances to reset the region code before the machine locks itself permanently to one of them. before the changes are permanent the player will usually ask you if you want to change the region code when you try to play a disc from the wrong region.

Before doing anything else it's worth asking other members of your household if they have recently used the player, especially if you know anyone may have been using imported discs. If they've used up all of the region changing opportunities then hacking the machine might not work at all.

If you use a search engine you can search for DVD-P181 hack and these will guide you through the process to make your DVD player a multi-region machine, but there are three different hacks which I've seen for the same player so you may need to try them all.

I have bought samsung dvd player h1080 and it seems that it is region 1 how can i make it region 2. thanks


Hello,

After searching the best known region hack databases I have found one process for your make and model. I can not assure you that it will work 100% but it's the only known process.

Turn on the Player with no disc on the tray. The tv screen and the dvd lcd will display "No Disk"

2. Press the "Repeat" key on the Samsung remote control

3. Press the keys: "5 7 5 3 8" on the remote. Number 2 appears on the screen for a short time.

4. Press "9". Number 9 is displayed on the screen.

5. Press the "Open/close" button in the remote. The tray will open. Leave it open for a few seconds.

6. Just press the "On/off" button in the remote.

7. You now have a multi-region dvd player!!

I hope this works for you, thank you for choosing Fixya!

I moved from the US to Egypt. When I try to play


Hello!
 
Please refer to the article given below to know about the DVD region code.
http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C125695


In order to play DVDs of any particular region that is not currently supported by the DVD Drive installed in the Computer, you may change the region code. However, the region code for the DVD Drive installed in the Computer can only be changed maximum for four times. After fourth time, attempting to change the region code will fail and service will be required to change the region code.

You may follow the steps given in the article through the link below to change the region code of the DVD drive installed in the Computer.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C171033

Furthermore, you can reduce the display resolution of the Computer display by going to the display properties.

DVD MALFUNCTION


DVDs and CDs are formated with regional encoding 1-6. If your player does not support the format, it will not play the disk. You might try looking up your brand/model player online to see if it has a regional patch code which you can enter via remocon.
