The problem with Amazon DVDs purchased is the region codes each disc may contain. Since a majority of them would be from USA, and their region is 1, your player being region 4 would not support that code.
There is no fault here, it is just a restriction. Some discs work, some don't.
No one likes region restrictions - particularly on DVDs bought legally, and I doubt very much Panasonic would provide any information on unlock codes for you.
Be warned: if you do successfully find a hack to unlock your player so it becomes region-less, expect the risk of either the player failing later, or not reading any discs at all. I am sure there are 'region-free' players around now, which don't contain a restriction and can play ANY DVD any region.
On the other hand, if you have a DVD drive on your PC, and it is set to
region 0 or all regions, and the discs play fine in it, but not the player, then you could view those particular discs that way; you do not need to make any copies of any of the DVDs just to watch them.
It means your DVD player has a different region code to the disc you are attemting to play.
DVD's and most DVD players have a region code corresponding to the country/region in which they were purchased. The region code printed on the disc must match the region code of the player, usualy found on the rear of the unit or in the manual. Only players set to code 0 or 9 are able to play all regions, a setting of 1- 6 is most common. 1 = USA 2 = Europe etc.
It is often possible to set your player to code 0 or 9 enabeling you view all region DVD's.
Turn on the unit with the remote controller, Wait until "no disc" appears in the unit's display. Press the keys: PAUSE, 3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9. And "CODE" will appear in the display. Press the number key that corresponds to the disc zone you want to play within the next 5 seconds:0: All regions / 1: Region#1 / 2: R#2/... and so on. Then, within 5 seconds, press: PAUSE, POWER... and voilà. If you don't have good results, disconnect the equipment and repeat. Or Put your player in standby mode and then enter: [ [ENTER] Default Default region code  [ENTER] or [UP] [ENTER] Region 1  [ENTER] or [RIGHT] [ENTER] Region 2  [ENTER] or [DOWN] [ENTER] Region 3  [ENTER] or [LEFT] [ENTER] Region 4  [ENTER] or [TITLE] [ENTER] Region 5  [ENTER] or [DVDMENU] [ENTER] Region 6  [ENTER] or [RETURN] [ENTER] Region 7  [ENTER] or [DISPLAY] [ENTER] Region 8 Or Put player into standby modes by pressing power button on remote control. Then press Title button. Press Clear button. Press Power button. I found these codes for all the other DVP-SR series players, yours was not listed but I thought was worth a try.
you probably purchased a different region dvd. there is a code breaker for your dvd but it will stay on that code that you place in. ebay sells multiregional dvd players. and ebay also sells the codebreakers. look under multiregional dvd and search for the listing
