You might not have the multi-region version of this dvd player, they do make them, but cost more. You might have the regular version. Someone posted the instructions on Amazon to make it region free.

To make it region code free follow these instruction:
1. Turn on the unit
2. Open the loading tray
3. Press the "Setup" button on the remote
4. Navigate to the "Preferences" page using the right arrow key
6. Press the down arrow once to enter the Preference page
5. Enter 138931 on the remote
6. You will now see the current region code displayed
7. Use the Up/Down arrow keys to select the region required or "0" for all regions
8. Press the "Play" button on the remote

I bought a DVD from the U.K., but it's not working on my DVD at home. I live in the U.S. I need some help. How do you make a foreign DVD work on our models?


The answer is generally you cannot. The recording industry refused to produce DVDs until the DVD player manufacturers agreed to a regional system, whereby DVD players sold in a particular region could only play DVDs marked for that region or marked "Universal" or "Region Code 0" (this is supposedly to discourage illegal copying). Your best bet is to use a computer DVD player set up for Region 2 (US is Region 1), then connect the video output of the computer to the monitor input of the TV if your TV has one (either VGA or DVI), or just watch it on your computer.

Earlier models of DVD players would allow you to change the region up to five times, but would permanently lock in the region set on the fifth change. Newer models don't even have that option because it was relatively easy to hack the region change counter. There is an "under-the-counter" DVD player hacking industry in Europe, but there is little demand for that in the US - partly because US recording industry lawyers can be even more bothersome and expensive to deal with than European bureaucrats, and partly because few people here obtain out-of-region discs.

I RECENTLY BOUGHT LG BD 550 ..THE PROBLEM IS I HAVE REGION code 2 DVD WHEN I INSERT DISK, DISPLAY SHOW "CHECK REGION CODE" SO WHAT CAN I DO?


it depends on what region your player is, most likely you need to unlock your region code(if there is an available unlock for your player) if you want to play that disk. but it simply means your dvd and your player is not on the same region

Wrong region


check with another dvd you know the region.
check same dvd on another (not region 2) player and see if itsn't working.
find if you have to follow special instruction to activate the "all region"feature.
find on line instructions do remove the region lock.
confirm make /model/ sn where you bought it and I can help to find instruction.

Philips 7" DVD portable player


The PET702 will be a region 5 machine, whereas the UK DVDs are region 2.

DVD players from a particular region are designed to play only DVDs from the same region, due to copyright and distribution rights in each country or region.

However the PET702 can have the region protection removed by making it multi-region:

Switch on the PET702 and Open the tray.

Press SETUP button on the remote control, which will bring up the menu.

Highlight "PREFERENCES" and press OK.
coolsmiley.gif
Press [2], [5], [2], [3], [1], [5], [LEFT], [DOWN]

The screen will show: "Region Code: 2"
Press [1-6] to manually set the region OR [0] for multi-region.
coolsmiley.gif
Press [SETUP] to exit winksmiley.gif

You will now be able to play DVDs from anywhere in the world.

This is particularly useful, because region 1 DVDs from the US often come out when the movies are still in the cinemas over here. Region 1 DVDs can be bought perfectly legally by mail order or from the internet.

Incorrect region codde


This is for DVP31XXX series i hope it works all on DVP31 series. It has been tested on DVP3146K /51 and it has been worked...


1. Make sure there is no disc in the player.
2. Turn power off and on again.
3. Open the tray.
4. On the remote, hit 9879 and then 0. This changes unit to Region 0, meaning it'll play all regions.
5. Hit OK on the remote.

Good Luck Guys!
