Can´t play European dvd´s in my Sony DVPFX810 player!

Hello Selmabjork:

Most DVD players have what u call region codes to play different types of dvd's. Look in your DVD menu settings and select the correct region code where u live. The US region code is 1. So this where I would start.
My question to you is does it play normal dvd's ok. Such as DVD's made in the United States, if so it's set right now for US region.
Also check your user maual for all region codes its usually there.

Happy Viewing....LT

I can not play any european DVD on my dvp fx930 bought in USA.Please help i live in Belgium.

you have to change the DVD region setting of the machine to be able to play those european discs. Look for a code to make it region-free if you can. Just do search in the net you might be lucky.

Change area code of device please

1. Hack for PAL p-scan using the supplied remote is "play", "159 222 023 00" , then press "play" for region 2 player

2. Enter RC6 command via Pronto

[For multi-region using a OneForAll (URC7560), to generate the RC6 code:
2.1. The remote should be set up to control the DVD (setup code 0539).
2.2. Press the DVD button.
2.3. Press the Magic button.
2.4. Press 085.]

2.5. The display should read '----'.
2.6. Enter the following with the normal Philips remote:
[On newer models, there appears to be 11 spaces in which to enter a code].

222 222 005 255

The player should now be able to output pal progressive scan + be region-free.

I want change the region code 1 to all region

One european player is the Sigmatek sbr1000 and it seems to be also a clone of Funai. Which is what your sylvania basically is.
We can use any DVD or bluray by using this code with the remote : 973501, you have to use this code each time you turn off the power and change DVD region.
Insert your DVD, say wrong region, open, use remote for 973501 then close, it's done.
Please let me know if this is ok on the Magnavox.

The 4:3 is an aspect ratio the ratio of horizontal to vertical size and the non-HDTV standard; the latter is 16:9.
The PAL and NTSC abbreviations refer to the picture and synchronization standards whereby NTSC is the American standard and the PALs are European. The setting "sp-raw" refers to an unprocessed video format that requires further processing before it can be viewed.
If the disk you have was made for the American market, you should be set to NTSC and the aspect ratio to whatever the disk is specified, most recent disks will be made to conform to HD specifications, but may also  be viewed in "letterbox" form which is a shrunken 16:9 box with pronounced edges around it.
