SET UP GUIDE

My AX-M138 DVD/DAB micro hifi system will no longer play Dvd`s, I keep getting error reading " Wrong Region " I remember when I originally set up the system it had a list of regions and I changed it from all regoins to Regoin 2 Europe i.e GB. But I can`t find the instructions and can`t remember how you get to the region selection page. Would be extremely grateful if you tell me how to do this. Have looked for user guide, instructions on Hitachi web site but cannot find anything to help.

    Although I changed the region it played dvds no trouble after, have no idea why it does not now, would like to see the instruction manual to confirm no changes are possible, but can`t find it.

Hi,

I am sorry to say that there is no way for you to get into the region selection menu once you have changed your region once . The only people who can fix/change this for you are the folks at Hitachi. It's a pity that you changed your region from all to 2...I always prefer all regions...

    This happens occasionally to DVD players...the software gets corrupted and causes this to happen (then the firmware needs to be flashed by the manufacturer which resets the region code as well). I can't find the manual online...I will keep looking...

DVD says wrong region ?


hi Nigel.
Region codes prevent playback of DVDs in other geographical regions. If you receive a region error while playing a DVD with RealTimes, this means that the region code of the DVD does not match the region code of the DVD drive. ... You can play Region 2DVDs only on a DVD drive that is set for Region 2.

How do you change the region on a DVD?Click Performance and Maintenance, and then click System. On the Hardware tab, click Device Manager. The DVD Region tab might not be available for all DVD drives. To configure your DVD drive to play discs from other regions, select a geographic area from the list of regions.

I put in a cd to play a movie and it will not read it, it tells me "wrong region".


That means the dvd you have does is not set to the same region as your player. DVD discs and players are sold in different areas of the world under different "Regions" Do a google search on DVD regions for a better understanding. Your options as I see them are to take the disc back and ask for the proper region or see if your dvd player can be set to "region free" so it can play any dvd from anywhere in the world.

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.

DVD Regional Error


Im not familiar with yours, but some DVD players, particularly PC drives can change regions a set number of times (for pc its usually 5)

So the last change that it made, it locked there. That is why regionless discs will work, but others wont.

If you have many discs of different regions try a few (particularly of the last that worked) and see if there is a pattern. Also look in your DVDs menu to see if its mentions what region its set to.

Need instruction booklet for HITACHI AX-M138 USB DAB CD DVD MP3 HIFI SYSTEM. Bought on Ebay and didn't come with instructions


I have found out that the Hitachi AX-M138 was only ever distributed in the UK by DSG (Dixons / Currys) so you could try their spare page at www.mastercare.co.uk to see if they can supply you with a manual. I've had a look & they no longer list it but it's worth an email to them. Otherwise I have a copy if your interested.

The DVD player does not recognize disks that it used to play before.


It sounds like the DVD region (a setting in both your OS and your DVD hardware) may have been changed. DVD regions are the agreed upon method (by entertainment companies, hardware manufacturers and governments) to limit cross-border sharing of media. Most valid (read: non-pirated) DVDs have a region code. Your DVD drive will only play DVDs with a region code that matches the DVD region code set on the DVD drive.

You didn't mention your OS but if you are running Windows XP then go to Start->Control Panel->System->System->Hardward->Device Manager and find your DVD player. Right-click the DVD player and select Properties from the menu and you should see a properties dialog-box with a DVD region tab. This is where you can change the DVD region that your player will recognize. Be careful, don't play around here, most DVD players have an embedded limit on the number of times (4-or-so) the DVD region can be changed.

Hope this helps.

DVDs & CDs will not play


If you are playing STANDARD CD or regular DVD that you have purchase and you are having this problem,your dvd player is malfunction;however,if you are playing DVD burner disc or a different dvd region disc(we are region 1 in U.S.) that is no going to work.Same thing for your CD burner disc,it might not work.
If you are using a rental dvd disc,check and see if there is scratches?If so,try to get one without that many scratches!
