Question about Samsung DVD-P181 DivX DVD Player
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.
