    dito. Wrong Disc and not dvds will load.

    I also have the same problem and have tried every disk and dvd that I can think of. It always says wrong disk. I have two of the same units that I got as a promotion with Direct TV and both of them do the exact same thing.

    Same problem here. I was able to get mine to play a dvd once. I went into it's menu programming and reset it's options to defaults. But, this only worked once.

I found a "hack' to make mine work :)
1. Open the tray
2. Press "Setup": Menu Screen should appear
3. Press "8-8-8-8" ( if you changed the password, you might have to change it back to 8888 ) The region number should appear on upper right corner. No other notation. Typically just the numeral "1".
4. Use the right (->) or left (<-) arrow keys to change the region to 255 for all regions.
5. Use the up or down button to go to 3001 and 4000. I had to change 4000 to 4001 to get mine to work,
6. Press "Setup" to exit.
It was a big relief to find this hack, because I misplaced my receipt and thought I was simply out of $30.

Region code hack posted by jeff777, December 15 2004:
This works.

1) With remote control, power the DVD player on.
2) With remote control, open the DVD tray.
3) With remote control, select SETUP.
4) With remote control, press the VOLUME UP button, then the VOLUME DOWN button, then the VOLUME UP button again and finally the VOLUME DOWN button again.
5) You should now see a number 2 on your screen. If you do not, this hack will not work on your system or you have done something wrong. If you do see the number 2 on the screen, proceed to 6).
6) Use the LEFT and/or RIGHT arrow to select the number 255.
7) When you see the number 255, press the SELECT button.
8) Press the SETUP button again to end procedure.


Region code hack posted by RayH, May 18 2005:
Newer Sungale 2026 players are a bit easier to set up:

1. Open the tray

2. Press "Setup": Menu Screen should appear

3. Press "8-8-8-8" Region number should appear on upper right corner. No other notation. Typically just the numeral "1".

4. Use the right (->) or left (<-) arrow keys to change the region. "255" all region.

5. Press "Setup" to exit.

Tested Region 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 PAL and NTSC disks. They all work just fine on an older US NTSC TV. It's a little bigger than the Cyberhome, but works much better. There is no jerking at chapters with either factory or homemade discs. Plays VCDs just fine.

Sniff around the internet. This machine is availabe as of 5-18-05 for about $29 plus shipping ($11). Arrived in two days.

Other hack posted by Hurricane, January 23 2006:
If you do the Setup>8888 thing you get a region code 1-6 & 255.
Well if you press up and down on the directional pad you also get 3001 and 4001 these can be changed to 3000 and 4000, I know that one of them is a Macrovision on/off flag but I don't know what the other is.

"wrong disc" display


I have the same problem with my DP313 Norcent. I found though that it will play recorded dvds. It also will play older Dvds and some Anime ones. It will play older recorded mp3s but NOT newer ones, I'm not sure if it's because they are burned at a faster rate or what. Also it will not play any of the new dvds except as stated before some of the Anime ones. It pays to try everything out to ensure it not a mechanical problem. I found it's not with mine, but still unsure why it won't play new dvds?
