We have a Akai VRD 975 VCR/DVD Combo that displays "region code error" on many of the DVDs we are attempting to watch. Is there a remedy for this?

Different countries have different region codes - mine is 02. The region is usually set by the manufacturer for the country of sale. Your dvd's might not come from your country or might be pirated. Did you get them overseas?

Hi, I have a samsung dvd/vcr combo player model number v6800 which I hacked to be region free. It now plays dvds with region codes regardless from where they originate (ie; 1 or 4), however, some of my...

If the dvds which are "all regions" are recorded from a computer, your dvd player may not play them. I assume the dvds which have a region code have been professionally prepared. Sometimes, the cheap dvd players will play anything while the more sophisticated ones will give you trouble unless everything is just perfect.

I need to unlock a Toshiba DVD player/VCR Combo SDV395 to view DVDs' purchased in Francs

You can change the Region Code of you DVD player but be aware that you have a limited number of changes, then the DVD player will be stuck to a certain region.
Search in the Options menu and change the region code to one printed on the french dvd case. To watch DVDs from your region again you have to change the region once more. Watch for changes left.

Looking for the regional code for a Panasonic DMR-EZ47V DVD/VCR combo in Australia and a Panasonic DMR-ES30V DVD/VCR combo. Can you please tell me how you put the code in. Thanks

Region codes are preset in the DVD unit. DVDs are encoded with a region code and are only playable if the DVD player is programmed with the same code as the DVD itself. If you want to play Australian DVDs, you will want to use code 4. There are 9 codes. Check below to find out what region each code is for:

You usually may only change a region code 3 times before it becomes permanent. You need to enter the menu-setup options in your DVD player and you'll want to look for "region code".
