Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

Philips DVP3120 Can't play any DVDs from region 1. Thought as this is a multi region DVD player it would be able to play them. Tried going to setup and choosing MULTI but that doesn't work. What am I doing wrong?

Re: Philips DVP3120

If this doesn't seem to work, try changing the OSD language to English. That did the trick for me.

Re: Philips DVP3120

I don't have any DVD's to try but seemed to work perfectly. Have done it previously on another Phillips DVD (That came with the code inside box) and it worked so I'm sure it worked fine.

Will not play dvds

  • make sure to use lens cleaner to ensure DVD player is free of dust and dirt on laser lens
  • another cause would be that your DVD player is no multi-region or not region free, because many DVDs have region settings. in order to make your philips DVD player region free (can play all region DVDs) check link below:

Multi region code for philips hts 3090 dvd player

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.

Dvd player dvd3020

This is a known problem with the DVP3020.

I am assuming that your lens cleaner is for CD as well.

Although identical, CDs & DVDs store data completely differently, which means DVD players need two lasers to read both formats.

It sounds like the DVD laser has failed on your player, which is why it will still play your lens cleaner.

Unfortunately the cost of replacing the laser outweighs the value of the player.
The DVP3020 has been replaced by the DVP3120 which is far more reliable.

The DVP3120 with a multi-region modification can be bought for £17.99 from CheapestElectrical.

Philips 7" DVD portable player

The PET702 will be a region 5 machine, whereas the UK DVDs are region 2.

DVD players from a particular region are designed to play only DVDs from the same region, due to copyright and distribution rights in each country or region.

However the PET702 can have the region protection removed by making it multi-region:

Switch on the PET702 and Open the tray.

Press SETUP button on the remote control, which will bring up the menu.

Highlight "PREFERENCES" and press OK.
Press [2], [5], [2], [3], [1], [5], [LEFT], [DOWN]

The screen will show: "Region Code: 2"
Press [1-6] to manually set the region OR [0] for multi-region.
Press [SETUP] to exit winksmiley.gif

You will now be able to play DVDs from anywhere in the world.

This is particularly useful, because region 1 DVDs from the US often come out when the movies are still in the cinemas over here. Region 1 DVDs can be bought perfectly legally by mail order or from the internet.
