Will not play dvds

  • make sure to use lens cleaner to ensure DVD player is free of dust and dirt on laser lens
  • another cause would be that your DVD player is no multi-region or not region free, because many DVDs have region settings. in order to make your philips DVD player region free (can play all region DVDs) check link below:

Can I play a dvd region 2 dvd on a Philips 5 disc changer 783c dvd player? its a uk release of a german film. The DVD player gives system menu selections stating many nationalities

just because it may have many languages does not mean it is multi-region.

what you need to do is search for "region free hack" and the model of your player.

If there is one for your player the process takes less than 30 seconds to do (did on my single play philips which is region free whoo hoo)

beware though you may have to spend some time finding the free codes and there are a lot of sites out there that want to charge for this info (dont pay just persevere)

The method is usually power on the dvd press eject whilst holding down a key combnation until a menu comes up then selecting 0 ZERO as the region or somthing similar there are variations even from the same manufacturer.

I disagree with the whole region scam and do not class hacking a dvd player as any form of piracy. its simply allowing me the freedom to choose what i watch from whatever country i want.
