SOURCE: Panasonic DVD-LX9 "disc may not be played in your region" error

Try cleaning the lens with a cleaner?
So it only reads music/Audio CDs and won't play DVDs?
Do you get an HO2 or HO7 error? If it is that it might be
the spindle motor.


You might try this website also to reflash the firmware:

SOURCE: Changing region on a DVD player

You did not specify what kind of DVD player this is? Since you said player, and not drive, then I will assume this is a dvd player you hook up to your TV, not install in a computer.

Simple answer, you can not change the region code on a DVD player, unless there is a known hack listed on a website.

Therefore, your only option, is get a region free dvd player. They are cheap and easy to get on amazon.

here is one for $30:

SOURCE: Unlock codes for Pioneer DVD player

Pioneer DV-667A

Converting the player to Multi-Region:

Requires the use of a Palm Pilot w/Palm OS 3.0 or later and the OmniRemote Pro from http://www.pacificneotek.com/
(Other PDAs using Palm OS and compatible with the OmniRemote Pro from http://www.pacificneotek.com/ can also be used).

1. Program the Palm Pilot/OmniRemote. For instructions on programming the Palm Pilot/OmniRemote click How to Program the Palm Pilot.
2. Power on the DVD player without any DVD in the tray.
3. Keep the programmed Palm Pilot close to the IR port of the DVD player.
4. Start the OmniRemote program.
5. Place OmniRemote in TV mode and tap the "0" button on the OmniRemote.
6. The DVD player will power off.
7. Power the DVD player on again. Check the Region-free status by playing a DVD.

SOURCE: Proton PD-800 DVD player Region reset

After working on it cleaning etc.., resetting features and searching for a manual, I finally found the orginal manual. Sounds stupid, but the solution is to unplug the unit for a few minutes. The processor needs time to reset.

Picture will resume to default settings.

Unlock code region hts5560


Open the Philips HOME SCreen,...
Type on your remote: 13893108520

This will display all of the current settings for your player.
Region_Code: DVD(2) BD(B)

This will not change any settings, but will report your current settings. So it's a reporting function only.

To change your DVD region settings try the following:

Turn on player with no disk inserted
Press "Open/Close" on the remote control
Press 259 on the remote control
After enter the code 13893108520 again on the HOME Screen and the player will show region "0"

Now the buttons on the front of the player do not work anymore.... You will need to go to SETUP and click on RESET FACTORY SETTINGS....
Wait until the player restarts and now you can play all DVD regions..... ;-)

One of these 2 should work.

1. Make sure that there is no disc in the tray and switch on the player.
2. Cold start the player, by holding down the PLAY and STOP buttons on the player.
3. You should see a set of language options. Release the PLAY and STOP buttons.
4. Select your language.
5. Press REPEAT (do not confuse this with the A-B button) then the following codes for the required region the player is already set to (region you bought the player in) :

Region 1 - 2, 9, 3, 3, 4
Region 2 - 3, 8, 7, 6, 7
("E series M105", M205 and M305 users try: 57538)

7. Press 0 for region-free, or 1 for region 1, 2 for region 2, etc.

9. Press STANDBY (POWER) on the remote control to close the tray. Next time the player is turned on it will set to the region specified. If the player halts on the FBI Warnings, press Forward Search x2 or faster.

Zone is the region of your dvd player and what dvds its capable of playing. If you didnt know what you have done then its hard to know what could be wrong, first things first try this .. this is a factory reset that if you did change something important in the home menu it will fix it for you and start the system from the beginning when you first took it out of the box.

hope this helps mate.. if it doesnt email me back on here.

Use this procedure to reset all system settings
to the factory default.
1 Switch the system into standby.
2 Press and hold the front panel

button.
All the system’s settings are now reset, and

Hi Jetix,

If the DVD player is capable of playing other regions, you should be able to change the region setting through the menu section. If there isn't an option to change the region settings in the menu, then your DVD player is not able to play other DVDs from other regions.

Sincerely,

Agent Xiong

DVD MALFUNCTION [MODEL PIONEER XV-DV131 (DVD/CD HOME THEATER]


I have the same problem with my XV-DV333. Search on inet and this came up: "... Pick Out One Of These! But I am unable to select any region using the remote control or the buttons on the player. What do I do? You need to get a Pioneer Service Remote. When you have it you should press: [ESC] [A.MON] [Numbers], where [Numbers] correspond to the region number you want to set. Be aware that you can only set this once, if you set the wrong region number for your area, there is no turning back. " WTF! Am I supposed to get a service remote to get this thing working again. I haven't done anything and it worked before:/
