Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players
We have a multi-region dvd player. It's worked wonderfully, but now, it's "sticky." It plays some dvd's. Others, it simply won't/can't read them or it freezes. It's very frustrating. I carefully cleaned it, thinking it was dirty inside, but actually, it wasn't at all.
SOURCE: whats region 1 dvd?
dvds are coded differently depending on which region of the world they are intended for. there are eight regions - check this link for more info; http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=502554 this was a pointless idea that was supposed to limit video piracy, but only actually causes problems and increased production costs The US is in region 1, so the problem is the settings on your dvd/vcr as to what region it is coding the discs as. You may be able to change this in one of the menus, but it may be designed for only one region code output. Check the manual - if you need a manual or have trouble then please post the make and model of your dvd vcr recorder and we can try to help Hope this helps you :)

I too have this same problem on my current DVD player, AND strangely enough I had the same problem on my previous player.
Previous player was made multi region and was a Sony S660 (I think that was the model number).
My current DVD player is a Denon and was £550! It is also made multi region and has the same problems! I don't get it!

With your set on and without disc in the tray:
1. Press PLAY from your remote control
2. Press the following button sequence: 1590 2379 390
3. Press PLAY again
This will release the region verification in your home theater (region free). However, some DVDs (multiregion in particular) will not play, since they require region detection from the player unit.
I've done this to my 3090 and been using it like this for 3 years.

SOURCE: I have a Samsung DVD-VR370
By what I have researched the vr370 doesn't have much information on it by way of unlocking the system...I have the vr375 which is the modle able to record BOTH dvd and vcr formats. I changed my region 4 player a year ago, but had to have it repaired and lost the setting. I have, however, found what I used online, and it is now playing my region 1 discs again!
1/Turn machine on without disc inside
2/Press menu button
3/Enter your current region code (See below for list)
4/confirmation of the current 'region area number' will appear in the upper right corner of the TV screen (some players)
5/Press 9 to change the region number to multi-regional
6/Turn machine off
R1 - 29334
R2 - 38767 or, 5 7 5 3 8
R3 - 56732
R4 - 76884
R5 - 53814
R6 - 24462
I hope this helps :)
