You would have to open the unit to inspect and see if something is jammed in the mechanism--failing there if it is not an expensive unit--cheaper to just replace as I now see units selling for as little as 20 dollars.
Introduction The Px4x DVD Upgrade is an advanced modification to your DVD player, which adds extra features and enables you to get more from your machine. The upgrade supplements the DVD player and in no way harms the playback quality or removes any performance features of the DVD player.
Main Features The DVD Upgrade adds the following features to your DVD player: Multiregion capability Macrovision disable
Players Supported The following DVD players are supported by this version of the DVD Upgrade:
Modification Details Multiregion selection Nearly all DVD discs on the market today are encoded with a specific "region" in mind and are made in such a way that a disc designed for "region 1" will not play on a player designed for "region 2". This is so that the Hollywood studios can control the release of titles in different geographical regions all over the world. Our upgrade allows you to select between regions 1 to 6. Macrovision & CGMS disable All DVD players have a system called Macrovision built in to the player, which is designed to stop the copying of DVD discs to video. However, this system can have adverse affects on some projectors. For this reason the DVD Upgrade disables Macrovision to solve any problems.
Operating Instructions You can select the region code by remote. This region will be tried first when playing a disk. Due to this design, the modification will work on the RCE (Regional Code Enhancement) protected DVD’s. In some cases it will be necessary to insert a conventional (non RCE protected) disc before playing a RCE protected disc. Follow the instructions as detailed bellow:
1. Turn the player on without a disc in it 2. On the remote control, press 'SETUP' 3. Use right arrow to select 'General' 4. Use down arrow to select 'Basic' 5. Press 'ENTER' on the remote control 6. Press 'Display' on the remote control You should see the region code and OSD version that the player is set to 7. Press 'Condition/Memory' 8. Press '1', '2', '3', '4', '5' or '6' to change the region code of the player The text will disappear 9. Press ' Display ' on the remote to control the region 10. Press 'SETUP' on the remote to exit. Play the disc This dident work for me but mayby work for you.
Make sure none of the Digital or Component Input Assignments are programmed, if you're not using them. Set them to "----". This may help. Some of the Component input assignments may over-ride your other input assignments (perhaps even the HDMI input assignments).
Downloaded the user manual for the Marantz SR 6003 A/V Receiver. In this it stated that if a SACD player was connected to the SR 6003 with an HDMI interface earlier than 1.2 then the digital data from the SACD could not be transferred over the HDMI cable to the SR 6003. This implies, but does not confirm, that if a SACD player does provide a digital output on an HDMI 1.3 interface, then SACD audio data can be transmitted to the SR 6003 and, presumably, decoded and converted to 6 analogue streams which are then amplified and deleivered to the (6) analogue output terminals.
I'm fairly sure that the native DSD data from the SACD has to be converted to PCM before transmission over the HDMI interface which is better than nothing. What I was hoping for though was for the data to be transferred in DSD and converted in the SR 6003 directly to analogue, avoiding two intermediate conversions. This ideal solution can be done by only a few SACD/ A/V Receiver combinations, which is silly considering that it is also the simplest. One example, which has made a big impression amongst high fi enthusiasts, is the OPPO DV-980H Universal DVD player (plays any audio or video disc and costs almost nothing) and the Integra DTC 9.8 home theatre processor.
If the DVD player is capable of playing other regions, you should be able to change the region setting through the menu section. If there isn't an option to change the region settings in the menu, then your DVD player is not able to play other DVDs from other regions.
