Sony dvd player Model DVPNS78H

Hi Guys,

I have the above dvd player I recently bought (in Australia, where I'm living). The problem is I was advised that this was a multi region player which would play all region dvd's, I have several dvds from America, which now only play in black & white...I have been through the manual to try to solve this issue. Do I need to add an access code or something like that or is this a bad luck situation...cheers Craig

Sounds like the TV you are using does not support NTSC, the US TV standard. Try connecting the DVD player to some other TVs - something not more than a few years old would be a good bet, and a large screen plasma/LCD ideal as most of these are "multi-system" and handle PAL and NTSC automatically.
If the problem was the region coding you would be getting a message on the screen, something like "Cannot play due to area limitations".

What region is the DVD player that comes with the new TEAC TV that I bought? I can't find the info on the manual or the internet. Please help. I live in Australia. Thanks.


It depends if the DVD player is separate to the TV or built into it. Assuming the DVD is a separate unit, it must be region 4 for Australia, unless specified otherwise (on the player's rear panel or in the operation manual). The only types of DVD players/recorders allowable in Australia are region 4, and multi-region. If the player plays region 4 DVDs, but not other regions, there's your answer. A model number and/or brand of the DVD player would help.

Change region codes


Unless you have a multi-regeon DVD player or the maual has codes in it, generally you cannot change the regeon code on most DVD players. You can wtch it on your PC though.

I live in germany and want to play dvd,s from Australia, Pioneer DV-360 from german store


Most DVD players I've seen are either multi-regional or one-region units. The DVD player you bought might be a one-region device. I'd check on that first. If it is, then you'll only be able to play DVD's made for that particular region. If it is multi-regional, look in the manual or go to Pioneer's website to possibly find the codes.

Multi region code


This is not possible without bypasssing/cracking the firmware on your DVD player. your player will generally allow 3 changes to the region code. If you have not changed yet, you may do so within the DVD player's setup options.
