Re: incorrect region code DVD player
You can play that dvd in your computer by configuring your region. go to the device manager click properties of dvd, click change region. remember only 3 changes of region will be allowed the last attempt will be your final.

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.
To change the Region code on your player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVD drive and click Properties then click on DVD Region. You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have been made. NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the 4th change. If you want to play DVD from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmware to make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrong firmware the player will be a piece of junk. The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece of software that allows you to play DVDs from any region. There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free From: - www.dvdidle.com/dvd-region-free.htm
you probably purchased a different region dvd. there is a code breaker for your dvd but it will stay on that code that you place in. ebay sells multiregional dvd players. and ebay also sells the codebreakers. look under multiregional dvd and search for the listing
Problem: All DVDs would not play in Jensen MVB85A overhead 8.5 DVD player. Error code: "Incorrect Region Code"
1. Use the remote to power on DVD player 2. Ensure there are NO DVDs in the drive 3. When you see the DVD logo screen, press 9653 on the remote 4. A hidden menu will open stating the region code. My region code was set to 0 and my I was receiving the error. 5. Press the "OK" button to change the Region Code to "1".
Once the region code was set to 1 all DVDs were playing.
Key words: Jensen Audiovox MVB85 incorrect region code
This is for DVP31XXX series i hope it works all on DVP31 series. It has been tested on DVP3146K /51 and it has been worked...
1. Make sure there is no disc in the player. 2. Turn power off and on again. 3. Open the tray. 4. On the remote, hit 9879 and then 0. This changes unit to Region 0, meaning it'll play all regions. 5. Hit OK on the remote.
This is how to make Philips DVD 622 region free so that it can play VCDs from all regions.
*Open CD tray by holding down "stop" button on the remote.
*Hold down "OK" button on the remote till 9 appears in the TV screen
*Turn off power of your DVD player
*Turn your DVD player on and it is region free now
