Sony Vaio AR590CED - tv tuner

I have bought Sony AR590CE in Canada with a built in tuner hardware and I am currently in Russia. So, when I choose the region Russia which i think is SECAM signal, I get the message "your tuner hardware does not support the TV format for your region". Is it just a software issue that i locked for NTSC or the hardware as well?

How can I change the region settings on my Sony DAV DZ870W many thanks, Shane


When a DVD disc is created, it is encoded with a "Region number." The disc will only play on DVD players with the same Region number - for instance, a Region 3 disc won't play on a Region 1 player.
Region 1: U.S. and U.S. Territories, Canada
Region 2: Japan, Western Europe, Middle East, South Africa
Region 3: South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southeast and East Asia Region 4: New Zealand, Australia, Pacific Islands, Mexico, Central/
South America
Region 5: Russia and the former Soviet Union, Africa, Indian
subcontinent, North Korea Region 6: China
The only way to get around the region codes, is to rip a DVD to your computer and remove the region code. Then burn the DVD to a DVD R. There are programs around on the net, but I'm not sure it is legal in all countries.
Google for the programs.
A DVD player sometimes allows you to change the region code once. But it not even would allow you to switch back after you changed it once.

I have a Sony Blue Ray player BDP-S560 I bought in AUstralia which I thought was multi region but I find it will not play Blue Ray discs from the US. Is there an update for the player which makes it...


im not sure if there are updates... because i dont think sony players have the ability to have internet connection...

but, i found myself in near enough the same problem...

i brought my panasonic Blu Ray player from the UK, (i live in the UK) (not knowing at the time what multi region was) and brought a few of my DVD's of ebay which were from canada and america...

so i did a search for any adaptable hardware i can plug into maybe a USB slot and i found a MULTI REGION REMOTE from ebay around

I have just bought a Toshiba SD590EKB dvd player and it will not play certain discs, it keeps on saying wrong regional code. How can I solve this problem?


Check the back of the dvd player and it will have a small sticker with a small picture of a globe (or earth) and it will have a number being one through to six, this will determine what region discs you can play in you machine. Ill list the regions and their codes, i hope this helps.

Region 1 - The U.S., U.S. territories and Canada.

Region 2 - Europe*, Japan, Middle East, Egypt, South Africa, Greenland.

Region 3 - Taiwan, Korea, the Philippines, Indonesia, Hong Kong .

Region 4 - Mexico, South America, Central America, Australia, New Zealand, Pacific. Islands, Caribbean

Region 5 - Russia (former USSR), Eastern Europe, India, most of Africa, North Korea, Mongolia

Region 6 - China

Good luck.

DVD player was bought in Russia. DVD 's bought in Singapore can not play


vd player do not match those of the dvd's themselves therefore they aren't playing. To fix this you will need to hack the region settings of your dvd player (which is perfectly safe). Post back with the make and model of your dvd player and I'll gladly look and see if there are any known process's to do so. Thank you for choosing Fixya!
