Hey there, colchester. It appears your daughter, (Blessed be her little angel hands), may have managed to change the setting for TV type from NTSC to PAL, or vice versa. Try entering setup, and using the left arrow, or right arrow, move across the icons on the top of the screen, until you find the box on a plate "TV Type". From here change the type to the other alternate, and you are good to go.. If you still have a problem there is a more in-depth approach if required. Let me know. Good Luck!

Bought it from usa cant get the dvd player to play dvds my daughter has it keeps saying wrong region .how do i fix this.


HELLO

With this unit being from America its probably LOCKED to Region 1 and this means you can only play discs from USA, Canada the US territories and Bermuda. Any other discs will simply not play.

You need what is known as a Region Hack which can usually be done from the remote control handset. However, there are machines out there which CANNOT be hacked via the remote.

I have found this hack, it may work for your machine or it may not!

Power on
Open disc tray
Press stop
(or there may be a button marked CLEAR)
Press 1 3 6 9 0 (the zero being for multi-region play back)
Close disc tray
Power off

Good luck with it (:-)

LOCKED DVR


I just bought the CH-DVR 1600 @ Target. This is just a temporary workaround to enable playing of region 2 DVD disks (don't have other regions but believe it will work also), until the real regional unlock is available.

1. Insert the region 2 DVD disk and close the tray.
2. Wait for the "Wrong Region" popup to appear in the upper-right corner of your TV screen.
3. The display on your DRV reads "STOP" at this point and the "Wrong Region" popup has disappeared.
4. Press the number "1" button on your DVR remote and a small input popup will appear in the upper-left corner of your screen.
5. Do not press anything else and the DVR will accept this entry as a chapter # and proceed to this chapter to start playing the movie.

NOTE1: The DVR runs in a somewhat restricted node, e.g. the DVR display still reads "STOP" and some remote functions do not work, such as "Menu". The input numbers correspond to the chapters on the DVD disk, so you can experiment and get to the menu once you hit one of the extra feature chapters with a "back to the menu" link on it.

NOTE2: I’m anxiously awaiting the real unlock sequence, as I tried most of the old ones posted here, none seemed to work.

also try this
-Switch player ON with no disc in the tray. Close tray and press MENU, 1, and 9 on the remote control. A menu should appear with the Region Option. Highlight the Region entry and press ENTER on the remote. Type in the Region you want. (Put 0 for code free) Press ENTER again to confirm choice. Press OPEN/CLOSE TRAY button and put in movie.

I'm having disc error messages or/and I cannot play dvds region 4


Below is a process to unlock the region's in that DVD player. There were a few methods try this one and post back letting me know how it goes.

1. Remove any disc in the tray.
2. Using the remote, turn the power off.
3. Turn the power on.
3. Open the empty tray.
4. Close the empty tray and wait until the player recognizes there is no disc in the tray.
5. Press "Menu, 1, 9".
6. A large rectangular area will appear in the bottom half of the screen; in the middle of the rectangle will be a single number that identifies the region to which the player is set.
7. Pressing the number keys on the remote will have no effect. Instead, use the up or down arrows above and below the "enter" button to change the region number. ("0" presumably is "region free".)
8. Once you have selected the region code (i.e., the number that now appears in the middle of the rectangle) press "enter".
9. Press the "opne/Close" button and the unit will save the selected code.

Hope this works let me know .Thank you for choosing Fixya! Feel free to leave a positive rating if this solution helps.

Changing the region code for DVD616K :

Kindly leave a few seconds between each entry, the microprocessor is slow
with these entries.

player.
OR
4. Press any number of '0' to '6' to set the required region code. The OSD

6. The region setting will be saved in the FLASH memory.
7. Press OPEN/CLOSE again, the DVD player will return to normal operation.

I have a dvd recorder/player Rca DRC8052N


you need the crack ! it seems that your players might have a onboard misfonction! it maybe coded for region 2,3 who knoes anyway try this its a workaround that usually works on lots of dvd players to unlock regions !

Press the title button on your remote, then hit 01. This will take you to the first title on the disc and bypass the region lock. To get to the main menu, do a chapter/title skip until you get to the end of the disc. This will take you to the main menu.
