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?

    I changed the region code and I can now see the movie but the screen is in black and white and it is moving. There also is no sound. Is there anything that you think I can try to do to fix it?

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.

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.

Why does it indicate 'wrong region'?


DVDs come imprinted with a region code for the geographical area they are sold in. DVD players sold in the same area(s) have the same region code. If you purchase DVDs made for a different region code, they will not play on your player. This is done to prevent piracy and copyright violators. Players can have their region codes changed, but then anything you have already will not play, and you are usually limited to three or four region changes before the player will not allow any more.

Here is a link to a Wikipedia article explaining Region Codes in more detail....

Portable dvd player when you put disc in machine it comes up with wrong disc display on screen is it the settings


It would more likely be the types of discs used. They are either of a region code not compatible with the player, contain foreign/unknown data, or they are unsupported formats. For example, if the player supports DVD-R playback, and you put a DVD-RW in, the player will generate 'wrong disc' message if the player cannot recognise the disc or the contents on it.

The disc formats/types that can be played should be outlined either on the unit itself or in the instruction manual (if you still have it). If the player shows that message even with genuine shop-bought DVDs then there is a defect within the unit, workshop attention may be required to fix it, but it could be costly.

'WRONG DISC' usually means the disc inserted is of a different region code to the player, or the wrong format (DVD-RW instead of DVD-R as exampled above). Try using different discs before going any further.

Wrong Regional Disc.


DVDs are ecoded with region codes to indicate what area of the world they are made for. These codes may be 1,2,3, etc depending on which region they are made for.
DVD player read these codes and if the disc region code does not match the region the device is made for, the player will not play the disc.
Region 1 is for USA so most DVDp players made for use in USA require region 1 discs.
Some DVD players called multi region DVD players can be set to play different region DVDs but they are typically more expr=ensive then one region players and the code must be changed each time a different region disc is played.
