I have an LG Home Theater Model HB806. It will play only DVDs for Region 4 (Australia and Pacific). Do you know the code sequence to unlock that restriction and play all Regions?


Your home theatre, because it's a BR player, has been made specifically for that region - the region for both the DVD and the BR is hard coded in the processor chip. Because of that there is no other region to switch to so you would need to replace the processor to change the region without making it region free.
Sorry, there is no way of making it region free.

How do i run a wrong region DVD. I have a Philips Hifi D 796 home theatre system.


Wrong region dvd. Look, all manufactures of electronics make the item for sale of a specific region. For example: A Canadian dvd will work on a United States dvd player, because it's basically the same region. But try playing a dvd shipped to Australia, United KIngdom, Japan, etc. Do you see where I'm trying to go at here? If you moved, or baught a pirated dvd (just saying), it may not work. Because different countries, product makers make them differently for THAT specific region. Check your dvd out, where you bought it from. If it was online, check where it came from.

Hope this helps.

Unable to get play dvd or get picture on DVD channell on tv


If the player is doing that for all DVDs but playing CDs properly, the player has gone bad due to either the laser and lens being out of whack or the DVD drive just doesn't recognise DVDs anymore and needs repaired or replaced.

Sorry. Best of luck.

- A menu indicating "Region Code" will appear.

Im unable to play HD DVD on my philips HTS8100 home theatre system


As far as I can see your philips dvd player is not a HD-DVD player.
It just upscales standard dvd or digital content to HD ready televisions.
