    I have the same problem and I didnt get a remote for the dvd player which if I ever get codes for it, would be needed to unlock it. Live and learn is what I keep telling myself but I will never buy from america again.

1 Push the "setup" button on the remote.
2 With right arrow move cursor to highlight "Preferences" (Do not press "OK" button)
3 Key in code 138931 Region code comes up. Change region code to 0 (zero).
4 Push 'setup" button again. Your DVD player is now region free.

I bought my mum an LG DVD player and some of the DVD's I bought for christmas will not play. I get the message "check regional code" but do not have a password or code to enter. Helena


It sounds like you are trying to play a DVD with a different region code than the player is designed to play. See label on rear/back of player and compare it with the DVD disk paperwork.

Hi i have bought a dvd and comes up saying wrong region how can i fix this


DVD players usually are locked to a Region code and cannot play DVDs from other regions unless the DVD player has its firmware changed to Region Free.
To change your DVD player to Region Free, please check out these WEB sites :-

I bought a movie diff region and i have a dvp1013 canregionchange


DVD's are made in different region codes as they are intended to be played on specific types of DVD players. As far as I am aware there is no way to change the region code of a DVD.

However, your DVD player maybe able to bypass the region code through a type of "hack"; you might search online for your specific DVD player.

A DVD drive on your computer may also be able to play the DVD although you may need to further research specific software players. You should be able to find some freeware that would enable you to play your DVD on your computer assuming your drive can read DVD's.

Another option is to buy a region-free (also known as an all-region) DVD player. Although they are a bit more expensive than a regular DVD player, region-free means you never have to worry about software fixes or trying to reconfigure your current DVD player. Online sellers abound the most well known probably including Amazon and YesAsia (a site that specializes to selling Asian merchandise overseas).

Hope this helps, I was a little vague in places.
Basically you can't change the DVD so much as the DVD player.

Unlock region code for Philips DVP 3256


Region code hack for PHILIPS 3256 x/94

1. Go to Setup. [from remote]
2. Select the Preference Page.
3. Press 1, 3, 8, 9, 3, 1 on the Philips DVD Player remote.
--> It will show current region code [ for example 5 ]
4. Now Press the up/down key to select "0" which makes it region free.
5. Press ok and exit setup.

Probably the same would be applicable for 3258, 3268, 3986.

Good Luck!

Philips DCP750/37 shows "wrong region"


Australian players are designed only to play Region 4 discs. United States discs are Region 1. It is illegal to change the Region code on a DVD player, so I can't tell you how to do it (ironically, it is the most frequently asked question about dvd players on Fixya.com - global world), but there are videos on YouTube that will show you how to do it - I would just enter "philips region code dvd" as your seacrh term. You won't find that exact model, but one of the codes in the video should work. Note that you will only be able to change the region code three times on a Philips - after that you will be locked out. So change it to Region 1 once, and never change it again.
