Question about Televison & Video
I HAVE JUST PURCHASED A JVC HR-XVC32SUJ COMBINATION DVD/VCR PLAYER AND IT HAS REGION 1 ON IT BUT AS I COME FROM AUSTRALIA ALL THE DVD'S I OWN ARE REGION 4 AND I AM UNABLE TO PLAY ANY OF MY DVDS. DOES ANYONE KNOW THE UNLOCKING SOLUTION SO I CAN WATCH MY DVD'S.
Unfortunately, the region codes are "burned" into the processor at time of MFGR

After getting clarification from Fixya I can pass the links below to you to check yourself
Some players are harder than others to do this but you may want to try here or here
Toshiba's and JVC's are the harder ones to do
I use a Phillips myself as it is not only cheaper but has much more going for it than many of the higher end units. i throw anything at it and it just plays
The older the unit that harder it is to do the region free thing with.
I let my EX have the panasonic (big grin)
If you cant find a fix then look at the codes available for cheaper brands and how easy it is to do it before you purchase one.
Just a thought.
Hope this gives you the information you need
It would be very decent of you to consider the quality of our experts answers and judge them accordingly as you pass through FixYa.
