"wrong region" on dvd player

According to the Wikipedia, "DVD region codes are a DRM technique designed to allow motion picture studios to control aspects of a release, including content, release date, and price, according to the region. DVD video discs may be encoded with a region code restricting the area of the world in which they can be played.

The DVD Copy Control Association in California, USA, requires that DVD player manufacturers incorporate the Regional Playback Control (RPC) system - according to the Australian government's anti-monopoly watchdog, the ACCC. It is therefore this US Association that is responsible for the RPC system that effectively divides the world into six regions for the purposes of controlling and manipulating distribution within the global DVD market.

There are six different official regions and two informal variations. DVD discs may use one code, a combination of codes (Multi-Region), most codes (Region 0) or every code/no codes (Region All). The commercial DVD player specification requires that a player to be sold in a given place not play discs encoded for a different region; however, region-free DVD players are also commercially available.In addition, many DVD players can be modified to be region-free, allowing playback of all discs."

A brand new DVD player allows you to play DVDs from different regions only five times, locking to the last region watched after these five times. So, you might have used your five region-change permissions and your DVD player is now locked to a different one from that of the DVD you want to watch (even thou you might have watched normally before).

There are some softwares like "DVD Region+CSS Free" from or "CloneDVD 2" from that allow you to back up your DVDs without the annoying region code. There are also sites like and that provide firmware or remote control codes to unlock the region of your DVD player.

Hope this information helps you understand why your DVD player is behaving like that and how to bypass that pitfall.

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.

Need to unlock region restrictions so unit is multi regional

Sorry, but like a number of Sony models yours is not hackable as the region coding is locked into the unit at the basic hardware level. Changing the region coding requires either internal hardware changes (not cost effective) or a special Sony engineer's remote control which is very expensive and only supplied to authorised Sony Service Centres. It's cheaper to buy a replacement DVD player with the correct coding.

You must either use a different player to watch other region DVDs (cheap, own brand, supermarket players are often easily hackable but search the model number online prior to purchase to be sure) or must use commercially available software to back up your DVDs, creating copies which have no region coding. This type of software is widely available but is never free other than on a limited functionality trial basis.

Converting Toshiba HD E1 DVD player to codefree

Hey! It is possible to convert your Toshiba HD E1 DVD player to region free. But you need some DVD Copy software to help you remove the region code first and then burn it on a new DVD disc. Thus you can play it on your DVD player. I recommend you use this DVD Copy which is very esay-to-use.
If you want to watch your DVDs on PC or some portable palyer, you can use some DVD Ripping Software which can remove CSS protection from DVD and convert DVDs to video palyable on PC. You can have a try of this DVD Ripper.
Hope that helps.

Changing the region code


You can only change the region code a few times (usually 5), so I wouldn't do it. You should leave the current player at region 1, and buy and install another DVD player and set it to region 4, then you will have 1 for each region you want.
