Question about Mustek MP70C Portable DVD Player

1 Answer

I power it up and insert a disc and it says Wrong Region on the screen. This is a Canadian unit that has worked fine for two years now, and I've tried several different DVDs which work fine on my larger Toshiba DVD player.

If you have relocated then the region code may need to be changed. However using region 0 is most practical. Clean the optical head of the player with a CD/DVD cleaner too & see if it responds............sodeep

Portable dvd player when you put disc in machine it comes up with wrong disc display on screen is it the settings


It would more likely be the types of discs used. They are either of a region code not compatible with the player, contain foreign/unknown data, or they are unsupported formats. For example, if the player supports DVD-R playback, and you put a DVD-RW in, the player will generate 'wrong disc' message if the player cannot recognise the disc or the contents on it.

The disc formats/types that can be played should be outlined either on the unit itself or in the instruction manual (if you still have it). If the player shows that message even with genuine shop-bought DVDs then there is a defect within the unit, workshop attention may be required to fix it, but it could be costly.

'WRONG DISC' usually means the disc inserted is of a different region code to the player, or the wrong format (DVD-RW instead of DVD-R as exampled above). Try using different discs before going any further.

I cant unlock my ps2 console to watch a region 1 dvd and ive tried some unlocks but they wont work


make sure your console has the ability to read region 1 discs in the first place.
REGION 1 -- USA, Canada
REGION 2 -- Japan, Europe, South Africa, Middle East, Greenland
REGION 3 -- S.Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Parts of South East Asia
REGION 4 -- Australia, New Zealand, Latin America (including Mexico)
REGION 5 -- Eastern Europe, Russia, India, Africa
REGION 6 -- China
REGION 7 -- Reserved for Unspecified Special Use
REGION 8 -- Reserved for Cruise Ships, Airlines, etc...
REGION 0 or REGION ALL -- Discs are uncoded and can be played Worldwide, however, PAL discs must be played in a PAL-compatible unit and NTSC discs must be played in an NTSC-compatible unit.
The end result is that DVDs encoded for regions other than Region 1 cannot be played on a region 1 DVD player, also, players marketed for other regions cannot play region 1-stamped DVDs.

If you forgot the parental control code and you need to unlock that, though, then try this:
1.Bring up a screen where the unit asks you to enter in the parental code. You can either insert a restricted disc, or enter the DVD setup menu and go to "parental control" under
custom setup.

2.When the screen asks for the code, press the SELECT button, then enter in the code "7444".

3.The level adjustment under Parental Control dictates the strictness of the player. The lower the value, the more strict it will be. Either increase the value to lower the restriction, or disable the lock entirely by setting it to "off".

4.Once you have made your adjustments, be sure that the DVD tray is empty, and press the RESET button on the front of the Playstation 2. It is imperative the tray is clear of any DVD or game for the unit to save your settings.

How do i run a wrong region DVD. I have a Philips Hifi D 796 home theatre system.


Wrong region dvd. Look, all manufactures of electronics make the item for sale of a specific region. For example: A Canadian dvd will work on a United States dvd player, because it's basically the same region. But try playing a dvd shipped to Australia, United KIngdom, Japan, etc. Do you see where I'm trying to go at here? If you moved, or baught a pirated dvd (just saying), it may not work. Because different countries, product makers make them differently for THAT specific region. Check your dvd out, where you bought it from. If it was online, check where it came from.

Hope this helps.

The following hack worked for my player. It works for most LG and Aiwa players too. To hack the player try this:
  • Power on player with no disc inserted and wait for "No Disc" message on screen
  • (using the remote) Press PAUSE
  • Press the numbers 314159 in order. (player should now show "COdE - -" the same as below)
  • Press the number of the region you desire ( 0 = any region, 1 = US&Canada etc.)
  • Press PAUSE
  • Power off the player for a few seconds..power back up and insert your DVD disc

Says "wrong disc"


This problem can often be caused by the DVD player software thinking it is in a region different than your discs. (DVD discs are often encoded with 'region codes' meaning a disc purchased in Asia will not work in a player expecting to see North American discs)

What can happen is the player 'forgets' where it is, and your regioned discs won't play any longer (region free discs should continue to work as will audio CDs ....)

A power surge, random cosmic ray or similar flakiness can cause a player to 'forget' what region it was designed for ....

If that is what has happened you need to 'reset' the region code.

Altho I can diagnose this, I have NO CLUE as to how to do this with a Protron PD-800 DVD player. Anyone out there know how to reset the region codes for this (or generically for a DVD player?)

Thanks!! //cheapz
