Incorrect disc region code

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.

I have an LG VCR/DVD unit model RC389H purchased in 2010 When I try to play a DVD from France (Region2) I get the message "Incorrect region code. Can't play back" There doesn't seem to be a...

Take a look at the back of the unit. You'll either have one of these: captainhawk1.gifcaptainhawk1_0.gif(You may have another number)
Or one of these: captainhawk1_1.gif (or the oblong version... I just couldn't find one of those)
If you've got one of those little globes with the number on the back of it, you have a region locked DVD player and what that means is that the seller is selling locked DVD players and using a hack to get into the system and change the region code. They just did a sloppy job. What caught my attention is the fact that this is PAL Dvd Player and you need a separate NTSC converter to play on use television. A true ALL Region DVD player would also have be able to play both PAL and NTSC without the need for a converter as it is built-in already.
DVD's are not only made with region codes they are also made based on the analog standard for the region they are sold in. The US uses NTSC, Europe uses the PAL standard and what that means is that it's a different technology to broadcast the signal onto the screen. The US has been using NTSC since the 1940's, I'm not really sure about PAL. Take a look the back of a US DVD case and you'll notice atthe bottom it will say NTSC.
Since ALL Region players are obviously more desirable and therefore a true ALL Region player would be more expensive, it has become a common practice for sellers to get the region locked-players from gray market sources in Asia and use hacks to make them ALL Region but as noted it still doesn't solve the issue of the analog standard so you ahve to get yourself a converter. Think about it: what would be the point of LG making an All Region player that couldn't broadcast both analog standards?
Now, if you do have a globe with an ALL on it, then you have a true all region player and shouldn't have an issue on an NTSC television, but on the other and, it wouldn't play Region 2, so you obviously have a problem. So, either you got completely scammed or you have a true ALL Region player that is defective. Either way, I'd return the thing.

If you're interested, here are some hacks for that particular machine:

Apparently they are locked to region 4 and I have bought region 1 DVDs so they won't play

In most models the unit cannot converted to multi-regions.So it will play only in the specified region in which it is applicable to.But in some unit models there is a procedure to turn the unit to multi region so it can play all region dvd.On all models the procedure to convert the unit to multi region is different.As you have not mentioned the exact model number of your unit.t will not be easy to give exact details.If in case there is a procedure to convert your unit to multi region.

Thanks. keep updated for any more can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Not that I know of. The region codes exist to protect copy rights. All I can tell you to do is when you buy a dvd look on the back where you can see which region code the dvd is for and look for the word 'ALL". DVD's with this written on them will play on all players no matter the region code. Look for this picture but with the word ALL instead of a number.

I am looking for the region unlock code for a LG DVD model DV4741P. Cna you help?

It uses the same unlock code as the LG 4721P and a number of other LG DVD players.
  1. Power on (with no disc inserted)
  2. Press PAUSE
  3. Press 3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9
  4. Enter the desired RC
  5. Press PAUSE
  6. Turn the player off and wait a few seconds
It took me a couple of times to get it right because if you take too long to press the correct buttons it does not work. I chose region code 0 so it now plays all regions.

I have an LG FB126 DVD system that only plays region 4. What are the unlock codes to play region 1 and how do I do it??


I was made to understand that there are several versions of this model. Pls try:
  • Turn on your DVD player - with no disc inside;
  • Press pause followed by 3 1 4 1 5 9;
  • screen will display current region
  • Press 0
  • enter
  • Press On
  • "No disc" will appear
  • Eject Tray
  • Press '0' more than five times.
  • Press Pause
  • Press Off
  • Press "pause"
  • Press "1 4 7 2"
  • edit the 5th number group in the code
  • the first number is the region code
  • example; if the number is "12" then the region is set to 1
  • another example, if the number is "42" then the region is set to 4
  • so if you want all regions set it to "02"
  • when finished press "pause" again to exit from the menu
  • power off the unit and turn back on again.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
