Wrong region??? Please help

My lx9000r has suddenly decided to start saying 'The region coding of this disc does not match that of the player' when in the past the same discs had played without a problem. Can you please help me rectify this, thanks.

    I am having the same issue, it was working fine and now we have some new dvd's it say it has the wrong region code

    "the region coding of this disc does not match that of the player" Any suggestion on how to change this to be able to play discs again?

  • Anonymous Mar 22, 2008

    Yep I have exactly the same problem. The dreaded "The region coding of this disc does not match that of the player" displays with many DVD's although not all of them. We have changed to other region codes to try without success then reset it back to "other". All the dvd's we have tried are either encoded for region 4 or all regions. Thankfully I have an 'extended warranty' so the retailer can sort it out. Maybe Philips thinks that Region 4 is too insignificant to do anything about it?

    Did anyone find a way to fix it?  I did once with a region unlock code but I lost it and the unit stopped working again....

No..I bought it form Clive Peters in Brisbane Australia, I called up Phillips who are no hlep at all and mentioned about the setting where for over seas he said it should still play disc's then said it was out of warranty and that was that. I will no longer purchase Phillips products and have informed my Boss who deals with them and we are no longer going to stock their items due to their lack of support and rude customer service if you can call it that. You would expect a $2000 product to perform better than this

The player you bought was marketed for another country - did you purchase it from an online vendor?

When i put a dvd in my hitachi htdk185uk it says unknown disc what does this mean


Either a DVD with the wrong region code has been loaded, and your player doesn't recognise it, or you have inserted a disc which is either rewritable (or an incompatible format for your player), a blank DVD or CD, or the disc has not been finalised in a DVD recorder. It depends on the disc(s) you have, whether they are region coded or those using a compatible playback format (finalised DVD-Rs are the best as far as burned copies go).

Examples of incompatible formats for your player may include;
DVD-ROMs
DVD-RAMs (which are the wrong version/speed for your unit)
Mini-DVDs/CDs
CD-RWs
DVDs with a different region code to your player or rewritable discs

* When using shop-bought DVDs, including those purchased online, make sure their region code matches your player.

Philips lx9000r 25S ome theater system Has suddenly stopped playing DVDs from Region 2 (no disc error) It will play DVDs from region 0 and CDs. Do not know access code, so cannot follow manual to change...


The Access Code is 0000 as default unless it's been changed

I think you'll find if it's not playing Region 2 DVDs that it's the same old Philips fault in that the laser has gone / is going.

''Wrong Disk'' error


KM,

You'll need to check the region code of your player.

Make sure you have no discs in the player, and unplug the unit.
Plug it in and turn it on.
Open, then close the tray (with no disc!)
Press the Setup button, then select Load Setup
Press the Enter
While it it loading, press Menu.
When the box appears with a number, confirm it says 1 (region code 1 = USA). If it doesn't, please change it to 1 using the Up / Down buttons.
Press Enter to accept the change.

Dvd not working


Check to make sure the regions match. Try lens cleaner. If that doesn't help, then dvd player is faulty.

Wrong Regional Disc


DVDs have region codes to prevent black-market selling of them and whatnot. Where did you buy the DVD? Where did you buy your DVD player?
R
I don't think so. What if you moved to another country? What if you decided to take your player on your yacht and sit out in international waters watching DVDs?

R
Try deregioning the hardware. Get the make and model number and enter it with "de-region" or "DVD region hack" into google. You may find instructions for de-regioning the player. It usually consists of taking any discs out, restarting the machine and then entering a number code that allows you to set the region to "0". Most of the cheaper, Chinese-made DVD players have a work-around like this. Post the model and maybe I can find it for you.

Wrong Regional Disc.


DVDs are ecoded with region codes to indicate what area of the world they are made for. These codes may be 1,2,3, etc depending on which region they are made for.
DVD player read these codes and if the disc region code does not match the region the device is made for, the player will not play the disc.
Region 1 is for USA so most DVDp players made for use in USA require region 1 discs.
Some DVD players called multi region DVD players can be set to play different region DVDs but they are typically more expr=ensive then one region players and the code must be changed each time a different region disc is played.

SAMSUNG HR733 DVD RECORDER WILL NOT PLAY ANY REGION DISCS AT ALL


On page 45 of the user manual it says this:

Both the HDD & DVD RECORDER and the discs are coded
by region. These regional codes must match in order for the
disc to play. If the codes do not match, the disc will not play.
The Region Number for this HDD & DVD RECORDER is
described on the rear panel of the HDD & DVD RECORDER

If you changed the region codes on your player it will not work. They should be set back to 1 or whatever your model says on the back of the unit.

If this unit was purchased outside the United States, it may not work in the United States.

Here is a copy of the manual if you need it:
