Wrong region code?

When I put a DVD into my system the screen begins to shake and a prompt comes out on the receiver that says wrong DVD region code. What does that mean? What do I do?

Re: Wrong region code?

Go into the set up and select NTSC or PAL (where you live EU=PAL, NTSC=US). the tv will stop shaking and become color, Viola!!

As for the code, Not too sure how that works, I have yet to try it.

Re: Wrong region code?

It means that the DVD is formatted for a region other than the one that you are in. if this is a dvd you made yourself, you need to change the region code, otherwise the people who sold you the DVD gave you the wrong kind.

Have dvd that say check regional code how do i do this ?

sounds like you have purchased the wrong region coded dvd`s when you bought them from amazon? if you are in the US you can only play Region 1, Europe is Region 2 and so on. Unless you purchase a mlti region machine which is obviously not what you want to do then the only other play of playing the wrong region discs is to buy a cheap dvd player which has "DivX" compatability which will play any region for you.

Wrong region

Hi , The reason for the error message is because your DVD player is set to one specific zone. The below procesure will open the DVD player to play all zones.
YOUR REGION AREA WILL APPEAR. PRESS "0" TO UNLOCK (OPEN the DVD player to ALL zones) ALL, THEN WAIT. INSERT YOUR DISC. Hope this helps. Let me know the status. Thanks, Mike

Region code

I have a region Code For A Philips HTS-3544 which is 1 model Down. You can try it, it may work or it May Not.
Heres How:- power on the TV/DVD without any disk in the player.Press open/close eject.
Press Stop ( on the Remote )
The menu code appears On The Screen.
Press 0 for region Free, or the region Code Required.
Power Off and then on Again, if the codes have worked, your dvd player is now region free.

If this works please rate as Fixya.

many thanks mike @ Compurepair.

to play discs from different regions on HTS3548:

Before you begin, ensure you have connected your DVD player to your TV and both have the power on. Once you have connected the TV, follow the instructions below.

-- Open the disc tray
-- On the remote control, press in sequence:
Disc Menu
7 3 4 4 6 6 0
-- Make sure Region 0 is showing on the TV.

This should hopefully help!!!!
