Hi, Was wondering if you know how to unlock the code on the Go Video DVR 4000 so it will play all discs. We bought a DVD recorder, it is region 1 and this older Go Video is a Region 2, so the DVD's we made will not play on the Go Video. ( Is this an ok question to ask?)

Re: Go Video Unlock Code
Check the menu settings or (setup) on the dvr 4000 to see if it has options to enable or disable parental lock or to change region settings to region 1.
also the dvds you made are they +r or -r on what brand dvd record disc on dvd-r this may solve the problem but use a quality brand disc like memorex dvd-r it is compatible with many players and recorders also make sure the disc you made on the recorder were finalized.

Hi its better to make your DVD region free,please follow these steps:The internet has made it easier to purchase obscure foreign movies on DVD that aren't sold in this country. DVD's have region codes so they will only play on certain DVD players. For instance, US DVD's are region 1 while Europe and Japan are region 2. The only way you can play a foreign DVD then is to purchase a region free DVD player or make your DVD player region free.
Get a DVD player. If you purchases a DVD player, make sure you purchase a DVD player that people have had success in converting to region free. If you already own a player, you will need to note down the make and model of your player.Step 2
Look up the DVD hack for your player. There are several sites that feature DVD hacks. Two popular sites are DVD Exploder and Video Help. Simply look up the make and model of your DVD player and check to see if there is a hack.
I have some bad news for you, this player is preset to region 1 and it cannot be changed, here is an extract from page 7 of the user manual...If you need the manuals email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
DVD video disc region numbers
DVD video discs that have incompatible region
numbers cannot be played on this player. The
region number of the player can be found on
the bottom of this unit and this manual (refer
to Specifications on page 113).
To unlock the DVD code its defends upon what region you belongs or from
were you bought the DVD unit. Just click this site to hack the region
code ; http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks
keep it simple, this means that DVD players and DVDs are labeled for
operation on within a specific geographical region in the world. For
example, the U.S. is in region 1. This means that all DVD players sold
in the U.S. are made to region 1 specifications. As a result, region 1
players can only play region 1 discs. That's right, the DVDs themselves
are encoded for a specific region. On the back of each DVD package, you
will a find a region number (1 thru 6). The geographical regions are as follows: 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.
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
I just bought the CH-DVR 1600
@ Target. This is just a temporary workaround to enable playing of
region 2 DVD disks (don't have other regions but believe it will work
also), until the real regional unlock is available.
1. Insert the region 2 DVD disk and close the tray.
2. Wait for the "Wrong Region" popup to appear in the upper-right corner of your TV screen.
3. The display on your DRV reads "STOP" at this point and the "Wrong Region" popup has disappeared.
4. Press the number "1" button on your DVR remote and a small input popup will appear in the upper-left corner of your screen.
5. Do not press anything else and the DVR will accept this entry as
a chapter # and proceed to this chapter to start playing the movie.
NOTE1: The DVR runs in a somewhat restricted node, e.g. the DVR
display still reads "STOP" and some remote functions do not work, such
as "Menu". The input numbers correspond to the chapters on the DVD
disk, so you can experiment and get to the menu once you hit one of the
extra feature chapters with a "back to the menu" link on it.
NOTE2: I’m anxiously awaiting the real unlock sequence, as I tried most of the old ones posted here, none seemed to work.
also try this -Switch player ON with no disc
in the tray. Close tray and press MENU, 1, and 9 on the remote control.
A menu should appear with the Region Option. Highlight the Region entry
and press ENTER on the remote. Type in the Region you want. (Put 0 for
code free) Press ENTER again to confirm choice. Press OPEN/CLOSE TRAY
button and put in movie.
check the region of the new one probably it is region 4 made in china.your disc is a region one thats the reason why it cannot play on your new dvr which is a region 3 or 4.go on the web and see hw you can hack the code or burn a copy of that same disc.then try it in your new dvr.good luck
