Sometimes when DVD players display an error code the machine just locks up and won't perform at all. Many times if you unplug the unit and let it cool off for awhile then plug it back in it will release the DVD. If this doesn't work, some players have a tiny hole in the front panel through which you can insert a small tool to release the tray. If you don't have the tool a straightened paper clip will usually work.

Hello, I have jusy bought a HTS3011 home theatre system, but I had try to play a lot of dvd s, and I had an error related to the disc regionin the most part of the discs I tried. Can someone help me? As I...


Hello Patricia -

Please follow the instructions below for unlocking your Philips HTS3011


1. Switch on the DVD player
2. OPEN the disc tray
3. Key 9 9 9 9 0 using the Philips remote control supplied with the DVD player
4. Press PLAY. The disc tray will close.
5. Switch the player OFF then switch ON again.
6. To test, play a disc from a region which was previously locked.

If it does not work the first time, switch the player off and back on, then try again.

This is a verified unlock method, but I was unable to confirm whether it works for players sold locked to Region 1 (North America). If you have a Region 1 player and the method above does not work, you will not be able to unlock your player.

Please note: Unlocking a DVD player may invalidate the warranty. Unlock sequences may not work with some firmware updates and some DVD players have been damaged through failed attempts to unlock them. Unlocking your DVD player is done at your own risk.

Regards,
BElectric

I'm having disc error messages or/and I cannot play dvds region 4


Below is a process to unlock the region's in that DVD player. There were a few methods try this one and post back letting me know how it goes.

1. Remove any disc in the tray.
2. Using the remote, turn the power off.
3. Turn the power on.
3. Open the empty tray.
4. Close the empty tray and wait until the player recognizes there is no disc in the tray.
5. Press "Menu, 1, 9".
6. A large rectangular area will appear in the bottom half of the screen; in the middle of the rectangle will be a single number that identifies the region to which the player is set.
7. Pressing the number keys on the remote will have no effect. Instead, use the up or down arrows above and below the "enter" button to change the region number. ("0" presumably is "region free".)
8. Once you have selected the region code (i.e., the number that now appears in the middle of the rectangle) press "enter".
9. Press the "opne/Close" button and the unit will save the selected code.

Hope this works let me know .Thank you for choosing Fixya! Feel free to leave a positive rating if this solution helps.
