If there is no power going to it, then the power supply might have failed. It is the one that needs to be checked or it might need replacement.

If this is still under warranty, you can take it to an authorized service center to save cost of parts and repair.

Hello bought DVD player that says: multiregion intolerancia Today I realized that multiformat IS NOT The same that multiregion. I need play Pal dvd's so Any one know where can buy one of this. Or in


Where do you live? Different vendors may offer different models.

J&R has the Pioneer DV-610AV-s, http://www.jr.com/pioneer/pe/PIO_DV610AVS/ , region-free DVD player that claims to output to any TV (PAL, NTSC or SECAM) if the unit is in Auto mode. To change the setting, turn off the unit (put it in Standby) and press the Fast Forward button on the front panel (not the remote). Then toggle through the options by pressing ON/Standby (NTSC, PAL and Auto are the options). This unit has a 90-day warranty with J&R. Documentation for the model is available here: http://www.pioneer.eu/eur/products/archive/DV-610AV-S/media.html . Expand the section marked Manuals. It will have a problem with some DVDs created on a computer (UDF) if they are not finalized.

The Panasonic DMR-ES18 PAL/NTSC Region Free DVD Recorder available here, http://www.world-import.com/Panasonic_DMR-ES18_Region_Free_DVD_Recorder.htm , will let you play a PAL format video on a NTSC TV if you add a converter. See http://www.world-import.com/samar.htm for a few ideas.

I hope this helps.

Pioneer region free code DV-340, DV-343, DV-444, DV-545


Introduction
The Px4x DVD Upgrade is an advanced modification to your DVD player, which adds extra features and enables you to get more from your machine. The upgrade supplements the DVD player and in no way harms the playback quality or removes any performance features of the DVD player.

Main Features
The DVD Upgrade adds the following features to your DVD player:
 Multiregion capability
 Macrovision disable

Players Supported
The following DVD players are supported by this version of the DVD Upgrade:

 Pioneer DV-340, Pioneer DV-343
 Pioneer DV-444
 Pioneer DV-545

Modification Details
Multiregion selection
Nearly all DVD discs on the market today are encoded with a specific "region" in mind and are made in such a way that a disc designed for "region 1" will not play on a player designed for "region 2". This is so that the Hollywood studios can control the release of titles in different geographical regions all over the world. Our upgrade allows you to select between regions 1 to 6.
Macrovision & CGMS disable
All DVD players have a system called Macrovision built in to the player, which is designed to stop the copying of DVD discs to video. However, this system can have adverse affects on some projectors. For this reason the DVD Upgrade disables Macrovision to solve any problems.

Operating Instructions
You can select the region code by remote. This region will be tried first when playing a disk.
Due to this design, the modification will work on the RCE (Regional Code Enhancement) protected DVD’s. In some cases it will be necessary to insert a conventional (non RCE protected) disc before playing a RCE protected disc. Follow the instructions as detailed bellow:

1. Turn the player on without a disc in it
2. On the remote control, press 'SETUP'
3. Use right arrow to select 'General'
4. Use down arrow to select 'Basic'
5. Press 'ENTER' on the remote control
6. Press 'Display' on the remote control
You should see the region code and OSD version that the player is set to
7. Press 'Condition/Memory'
8. Press '1', '2', '3', '4', '5' or '6' to change the region code of the player
The text will disappear
9. Press ' Display ' on the remote to control the region
10. Press 'SETUP' on the remote to exit. Play the disc
This dident work for me but mayby work for you.

Pioneer Dv 285 powers down after 15sec


Hi There, I've got the same problems with my DV 285. My power started going off approximately 5 to 10 minutes into the DVD. The only button that seems to work is the OPEN/CLOSE button. Once the tray closes, the unit shuts off. I can't even use the on/standby button to turn it on.

Unlocking Pioneer DV-410V region code


I remember that particular one yes, he emailed me the final solution to the problem. Below is the excerpt of his email to me. After doing the steps below it worked. If it does not in your case message me back. You are using the supposed multiregion DVD player that isnt multiregion when you buy it right?


"thru parental lock/password then it wanted me to enter a new country code of 4 digits so i decided to try 0000. it only let me enter one 0 but i closed the menu button"
