Well DVD's from regon 3 are from these parts of the world:
CAMBODIA
HONG KONG
INDONESIA
KOREA
MALAYSIA
PHILIPPINES
SINGAPORE
TAIWAN
THAILAND
VIET NAM
And a few others in that area

Region 1 is what we use for DVD's in the USA

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
DVD region code
"Region 1–8" redirects here. For the ITU regions, see International Telecommunication Union region.

DVD RegionsDVD video discs may be encoded with a region code restricting the area of the world in which they can be played. Discs without region coding are called all region or region 0 discs.
The commercial DVD player specification requires that a player to be sold in a given place not play discs encoded for a different region (region 0 discs are not restricted). The purpose of this is to allow motion picture studios to control aspects of a release, including content, release date, and, especially, price, according to the region. Many DVD players are or can be modified to be region-free, allowing playback of all discs.

I looked on a few sites for region codes for your player but they all came up with same answer as this one http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks/magnavox-mdv453/3134
there doesnt seem to be any code available for your model to set it to region-0 (region free)

    Turn on your DVD player.

  • 2
    Open the DVD player's main drive, also commonly called the DVD "tray." The region cannot be changed while a DVD is in the machine, so many DVD players require the tray to be open as an extra precaution.

Is it possible to change the region code to region 3 so we can watch movies from Thailand? No need to switch back as I have another DVD on region 1. Charlie (cleggett1937@aol.com)


You can make this player REGION FREE so all discs operate on it.

Power up, no disk in. Status says READ then INSERT DISC.
Press MENU (status reads invalid key icon)
Press 1 (status reads invalid key icon)
Press 9 Menu is displayed.
Press ENTER on the region, digit turns to "-"
Press 0
Press ENTER again
Press EJECT to clear the special menu.

If you reset (unplug) the player for any reason - this will need to be re-entered.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Dvd drive wont recognize disc


There are a number of possibllities for this problem:

1. Your drive may be dirty. Try to get a drive cleaner, run it then try again

2. The disc itself is faulty. Try using it on another computer's drive and see if you can read it

3. It is a region-specific DVD. Some movies can only be played on DVD's made for that region. Although you can change your DVD's region to be able to read that DVD, you will then not be able to read DVD's for your current region. The recommendation here is to buy a multi-region DVD player. You do not need to get the top of the line model as these players can be quite cheap.

Not reading the disc


need a bit more info - are you playing a movie or running software installation?

If you need to change the drive region then do the following


1. Power on your DVD Player without a disc in the drawer.
- Wait for the "Loading" screen to finish and then the display reads "no disc".
Check which region your reader was bought in. (Large Number label is located on the rear of the Player. Region 1 to 6)
-on the remote control
2. Press the "Repeat"button. The "no disc" label on the screen will disapear.
3. According to the region your player was bought in, choose from the following button sequences.
- region 1, press buttons 2, 9, 3, 3, 4
- region 2, press buttons 5, 7, 5, 3, 8
- region 3, press buttons 5, 6, 7, 3, 2
- region 4, press buttons 7, 6, 8, 8, 4
- region 5, press buttons 5, 3, 8, 1, 4
- region 6, press buttons 2, 4, 4, 6, 2
4. The number in the top left corner of the screen shows you the current region. EG "1" for the US/Canada, "4" for Australia/NZ.....etc.
5. Now enter the new number for the region you require (1 to 6)...or simply enter 9 for "Multi-region". The number in the left hand corner of the screen will change to the number you enetered. Wait for the number to dispear. It will take around 15 seconds.
6. Now power off the DVD player with the button on the front of the unit. Now each time the unit is turned on it will be in the new region...or muti-region if region 9 was chosen.
7. If you wish to change the region again...or back to its original, go through the exact same sequence until step 5. Then you enter the different region number.
If you are unsuccesfull with the above code then it may be worth trying one of the resources below.

Only says loading when started, does nothing


Hi, your problem is the laser lens, it went sour. This device is coded to read only region 1 disks, when U attempt to read other regions disks it will read them once, 2 or 3 times but then... it will stop reading any disk regardless the region they are. Regions codes were implanted on disks to control piracy, so USA has region 1, Mexico 4, Asia I believe is 3 and so on. There are a total of 6 regions worldwide, U have to get disks matching the region U are from or, better solution... get a multi-region DVD player.

2. Power on your player
3. Press <Menu> on remote
4. Using your remote control enter the code below, note that you must know what Region your player is CURRENTLY set to in order to know which code is appropriate:
for Region 1 use 2, 9, 3, 3, 4
for Region 2 use 3, 8, 7, 6, 7
for Region 3 use 5, 6, 7, 3, 2
for Region 4 use 7, 6, 8, 8, 4
for Region 5 use 5, 3, 8, 1, 4
for Region 6 use 2, 4, 4, 6, 2

5. A code should be displayed on the screen indicating the current Region setting of your unit.
4. Press the 9 (or 0) button on your remote control for Region free, or 1 for Region 1, 2 for Region 2 and so on...

For vcd problem...Make sure that the Cd is written in a format which is compatible with the format with your dvd player. If you have a dvd player that can play formats like, avi, wma, etc. check that your cd writer is set on high quality mode and that the writing speed isn't set too fast. hope i was able to help^^

Hi I live in Australia and added this model.



acknowledging: Region code hack posted by ZoidsGodzilla, November 22 2006: for the Samsung DVD-V5600

1. Press the DVD button on your remote (the Samsung logo appears)
2. Press the SUBTITLE button on your remote
3. With your remote enter the code: 76884
4. The current region is displayed on the top left corner of the screen. (e.g. 4)
5. Press 9 on your remote (Region free)
6. Again press the SUBTITLE button on your remote
7. Enjoy the Region free player

If your player is NOT Region 4 by default then you will need to Substitute the Numbers in Step 3 with the ones Below.

Region codes:
RC 1: 2, 9, 3, 3, 4
RC 2: 3, 8, 7, 6, 7 (or 5, 7, 5, 3, 8 )
RC 3: 5, 6, 7, 3, 2
RC 4: 7, 6, 8, 8, 4
RC 5: 5, 3, 8, 1, 4
RC 6: 2, 4, 4, 6, 2

For Example if your Player was Purchased in the usa ( Which is Region 1) then Step 3 would read :-

3. With your remote enter the code: 129334
