Curtis DVD8723UK Wrong Region Problem

My recently purchased Curtis DVD8723UK dual display DVD player now comes up with Wrong Region after I'd been trying to use different signal sources as input to the player through the S-video and video inputs. It was working perfectly before. I've tried resetting the TV setting from PAL to NTSC and back again but it makes no difference. Is there a fix for this so that I can use it with my UK region DVDs again? Thanks. JP

This may be of no help to anyone but I have the same problem and I have spoken to Curtis Support today, they say there is no fix, its a fault in the machine and must be returned to the vendor as they have no service network in the UK. I bought mine with a 90 day guarantee off Ebay and it went faulty after 100 days but probably only used for 3 days so I'm stuffed!!!

Go to http://www.rapidegg.demon.co.uk/CURTIS and download the "bin" file. You need to burn this to a CD using nero or some other such program. MAKE SURE that you NAME THE CD "CORETEK" or it won't work. Stick the CD in the player. Turn it on. Wait until you are asked if you wish to update and then press PLAY WAIT. Power off, Power on and press CLEAR +0001 Power off and on again and everything will be jolly. Hope this gets you sorted.

  • Now enter a region code (0 is defult, or 1 - 8).
  • Press and hold Clear. The opening screen comes back.

Hope this initial info helps.

Want to unlock Philips DVD player (DVP320)


Did you follow these instructions exactly? If you pressed 9990, as you mentioned, it will not work. You need to press 99990. Do you see region "0" on the display?

start the player without any DVD in it.
open the lid.
while the lid is open press 9,9,9,9,0
you should see region 0 displayed.
close the lid.

Your DVD player is now region free.

note:
replace 0 with 1 to 6 at to set the wanted region number if needed.

Dvd8723uk curtis dvd player wrong region


region code solution as per

http://www.dvdcodes.net/newCodesAZ/codesD/DigixMedia/DigixMediaHT-1056A.php

Power up the player and open the tray. With the tray open, hit the setup button and then 0000 and then the "Up" button.
On the Setup menu, go to Version and hit enter. Go to region code and change the number to 0 for region free and hit setup again to save.
Or
Power up the player and open the tray.
Press the SETUP button. The setup menu appears.
Press ZERO on the remote control four times - 0000
Press the CHAPTER FORWARD button - the one on the bottom right of the remote control unit that looks like a double arrow with a bar.
A new menu item appears, "Version". There is a REGION option you can select, and this can be set to zero "0" for all regions. Once you see its set to region 0, press SETUP to exit, close the tray and power off. When you power up again, its region free. RCE disks work fine in this unit.
To recap - open the tray, press setup, press 0-0-0-0, press Chapter Forward, select Version, choose 0 for region free, press setup again.
Or
1) Turn on the System
2) Open the tray
3) Press "setup" button

5) Press the "Next Chapter" button (>>|)
6) Appear a menu called "Setup Factory"
7) Select with the cursor movement key "Region All"
8) Press "setup" button to save de changes.
