Incorrect disc region code

Look at the region code of the DVD that plays on the vehicle DVD if it is the same of the others that do play it's not a region code issue. If the others are a different region to the DVD that plays or the disc says it is region free. Then you might have a problem with the region code settings on the machine. You can look up the model number of that player to see if you can change the region code.
Otherwise check out the player to see if it needs cleaning or is faulty.

Try a different brand of blank dvd+r or -r. you will find that your dvd machine is fussy on what discs it plays. More exspensive dvd players are fussy with what dvd discs you put in, as cheaper dvd players would virtualy play most types of dvds.

My samsung dvd-hr753 comes up with a message saying ''this disc can neither be played or recorded'' when i put in some pre-recorded dvds... what is causing this? how can i fix it? I thought that the...

use the procedure in the link

You have to enter a code specifc your region.

Using the Remote:
Make sure there is no DVD in it.
Make sure it's in DVD mode.
Turn it off.
Turn it on.
Wait for it to start up (showing DVD mode in the display)
Press Repeat (for a half a second?).
Enter the code for your region

Region 1 use 2,9,3,3,4,9
Region 2 use 5,7,5,3,8,9
Region 3 use 5,6,7,3,2,9
Region 4 use 7,6,8,8,4,9 <----- try this for region free setting
Region 5 use 5,3,8,1,4,9
Region 6 use 2,4,4,6,2,9

When you get to the second to last digit you *may* see your current region.

When you see "9" appear you have entered the code correctly.
Now be quick and eject and close the DVD drive before it vanishes.

Use the buttons on the machine to open/close the drive.

You have to be confident and quick with your button presses; it's very sensitive to pauses etc. If it does not work the first time keep trying.

Good Luck.

What does wrong region mean? the player refuses to read and play certain cd's , it says,"wrong region".

It means The Disk Was Not Created In your country. They do this to make more money. Now if its a dvd player then you may be able to make it region free and play it just give me the model number. But if its a c.d you'll have to use your computer to make a copy of it.

Dvd-p181 - Samsung Region-free

Try this hack as it seems to be another one available for this player and it doesn't include the play and stop buttons.

<DVD> ; press DVD button
<0><0><0><0><0> ; enter 5 times 0
<repeat> ; press repeat button (careful, not <repeat A-B>)
<5 digit code> ; see below, depends on region the player is currently set to
<0 for region free, 1-6 for other region> ; select new region
<open> ; open tray
<open> ; close tray
Now power off/on

5 digit code:
region 1 : 29334
region 2 : 37867
region 3 : 56732
region 4 : 76884
region 5 : 53814
region 6 : 24462

Note: reset player by powering down and simultaneously pressing <power> + <play> until display shows 'reset'.

Not reading pre-recorded dvd's and ocassionally not re-wrtten dvds

Over recent months my recorder has stopped reading pre-recorded disc's and more requently re-writer disc's. I had thought that the region had some how been altered, but not too sure now. Is there a way of checking? Or is there a problem with the laser block. I have stripped the machine down and thoroughly cleaned (but no dust found) and no loose parts. I have reset to manufacture default but this hasn't helped.

DVD-RW discs I have recorded sometimes say 'disc error' sometimes 'no disc' sometimes start ok but cycles round and round for 5 - 10 mins before stopping, sometimes goes straight into play at last position, won't stop back in menu just goes straight to stndby. Factory reset dosn't help. Wont play pre-recorded discs without going into menu and messing around. It seems to damage or not record RW discs properly a lot of the time. Not even sure if it's resetting to factory settings properly.
