    Well, when i load the discs the DVD player reads 'DVD' but after a few seconds a note comes up on the TV screen 'incompatible disc region number can't play disc' strangely though it plays other region 1 and 2 discs without problem, also how do you mean the lens can't read it?

Pioneer region code


When a DVD disc is created, it is encoded with a "Region number." The disc will only play on DVD players with the same Region number - for instance, a Region 3 disc won't play on a Region 1 player.
Region 1: U.S. and U.S. Territories, Canada
Region 2: Japan, Western Europe, Middle East, South Africa
Region 3: South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southeast and East Asia
Region 4: New Zealand, Australia, Pacific Islands, Mexico, Central/ South America
Region 5: Russia and the former Soviet Union, Africa, Indian
subcontinent, North Korea
Region 6: China

The only way to get around the region codes, is to rip a DVD to your computer and remove the region code. Then burn the DVD to a DVD R. There are programs around on the net, but I'm not sure it is legal in all countries.
Google for the programs.
A DVD player sometimes allows you to change the region code once. But it not even would allow you to switch back after you changed it once.

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.

My pioneer dv-120k wont play australian or us cd's. Only home burnt copies of movies.


dvd players because of copyright info can only be set to one region code and can only play dvds from that region. Some players are set at factory some allow user to reset region usually a limited no. of times.
home burnrd dvds usually don't carry that info therefore no issue. So you need to reset player for appropriate region

Hello my sharp dv-nc200 dvd player can only play regional code 4, but I have dvd's from europe, which are regional code 2, can I change this somwhere in the setup or menu or elsewhere thanks a lot for...


If it is set to only play region 4 discs, then that's what the player can do - you cannot change the region code and I don't believe there is a hack to unlock this particular model to make it region-free.

The only types of discs acceptable are those which match the region of the player or discs which are 0 (region-free). I have never found a menu option to change region settings in any player. It is not modifiable nor accessible. There may be a player on the market which is multi-region compatible and will play your region 2 DVDs perfectly; just not this one. It is a restriction, not a fault.

Do not fix what isn't broken.

Pioneer model # DV-c503 will play DVD but does not play CD's anymore.


Hello,
The problem could be dirt on the surface of the lens.
Use a dry cotton bud to clean the surface of the lens, this you have to do gently because the lens is fragile.
If otherwise you have to change the lens.
Try websites Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy parts for replacement..
