After getting clarification from Fixya I can pass the links below to you to check yourself

Chances are the model is not Argos but may have been produced by a different manufacturer. You may have to solve that small riddle first !

Some players are harder than others to do this but you may want to
try here
or here
Comments:
Toshiba's and JVC's are the harder ones to do

I use a Phillips myself as it is not only cheaper but has much more going for it than many of the higher end units. i throw anything at it and it just plays

The older the unit that harder it is to do the region free thing with.
I let my EX have the panasonic (big grin)

If you cant find a fix then look at the codes available for cheaper brands and how easy it is to do it before you purchase one.

Just a thought

SOURCE: I cannot play dvds / always says Wrong disc

I think I had the same problem, I went into setup and it was set to SCART, but I'm using the red, white and yellow leads, so I changed to the option at the top of the menu and it now works fine.

Still can't find the unlock codes though !!!!

SOURCE: need the hack to make argos dvd model ds-306a

Yours is a rebadged Mikomi model. Whilst it's possible to access the technical page which shows the region code, you cannot actually change it without a special servicing remote control.

Unfortunately, for a cheap no-name brand like Mikomi it's actually cheaper to just buy another DVD player which can be hacked without any special equipment. Service remotes are very expensive to buy and if you can find a company which rents them out the typical charge costs as much as your DVD player cost to buy.

Sorry, but not all DVD players can realistically be made multi-region and yours is one of them.

How can I control Argos model ds-306a DVD player?


It is likely your One For All remote is universal so you can use its code search feature to find something that will manage some or all functions of your player. If a search through all codes contained in the remote fails, you may have to try a different universal remote. All universal remotes do not contain all possible codes.

Nintendo DS not charging. Tried different chargers but no good


1) If the light doesnt come on at all when you plug in the DS
there is probably an internal fuse on the DS which governs the charging of the device. You can get a kit that will charge the battery for you, usually when you buy accessory kits you get these (try argos?). I got one a couple of years ago with a battery and a dock for charging it, from argos, but I think it was discontinued.

2) if the light comes on and turns off immediately then its probably a problem with the battery. Buy a new battery, theyre quite easy to get hold of and quick to change with a screwdriver.

Unlocking an argos mikomi ds-306


Eject the disk drive then press the setup button.

On the 'general' tab press 1389.

That should then bring you to a page where you can change the region.

Unfortuately for me i've got an rebaged argos one, meaning this doesnt work for me :(

Unlocking Mikomi DS-306 Dvd player


Partial solution...

Without a DVD in the player - eject the tray

1). Press Setup ensure you are showing 'General' tab
2). Enter 1389

At this point a list comes up with all sorts of info. At the bottom is Region Code 2. But I'm stumped as to how to change it. I've tried all different key combinations I can think of. On other Mikomi players except the ds-306a (the Argos is a rebadged Mikomi ds-306a)
you can then use the up or down arrows and cycle throw the region nunbers until you get to region 0. Odd that it doesn't seem to work on ds-306a. Perhaps someone else can figure the final steps out
