    Hi,

    this is the only hack available for Insigna, but it does not work on all models.

    Some Insigna model cannot be made region free, as Manufacturers do not support region change.

    If I find a different procedure I will post it here.

    Regards

I just bought a sony DVP-FX750 portable DVD player in the US but live in Europe - how do we change the region code from 1 to ALL?


The region code for ALL comes by default & if once set to a particular region you can change it to other region for 5 times, but not to ALL.

I bought a DVD and I played it on my laptop. It worked on the laptop but when i put it into the DVD player it wouldn't play. So I tryed playing the DVD in the PC and it also worked on there. Again I...


DVD movies have region codes, and they typically only play on a player or DVD-ROM drive sold in the country where the DVD movie was sold.

The actual region code is in one byte on the DVD (digital versatile disc). The DVD player or drive has a region code in its firmware. Personal computer DVD-ROM players often have the code in the software or MPEG-2 decoder. The two codes must match for the player or drive to play the movie. The code is also printed on the back of a DVD package, superimposed on a small image of the globe.

DVD regional locking is used to control which DVD movies play in which countries or groups of countries. Movies are often released on different dates around the world. Region 1 has its own player that will only play Region 1 discs. Likewise, Region 2 players can only play Region 2 discs and not play any of Region 1's discs. The six codes are:
  1. United States and Canada
  2. Europe and Japan
  3. Southeast Asia
  4. Latin America and Australia
  5. Russia, rest of Asia and Africa
  6. China
please check the DVD region code again and what PLAYER u are using to play on PC / LAPTOP??

where did you buy the DVD player??

Remote control


Hi Maria.
The States USA uses region 1. N.T.S.C.
You need a One for all universal remote control.
If you have 1 of these, contact me and i,ll give you the instructions on how to make the player multi-region.

Panasonic model dvd-la95 says it doesn't recognize region code of movie


Did you buy the movie from another country?

Different parts of the world have what is called region codes: North America is 1, Europe is 2 etc...
You cannot play a movie that you have bought from... say the UK on a DVD player you bought from the States.

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.

Good Luck Guys!
