    Dear mike thanks for the reply the dvd player is multi regional and plays dvds from america with no problem until this particular series again from america which will not play, it is a region 1 dvd, brand new, and all that comes up on the screen is wrong region. but it isn't the wrong region. could it be the discs themselves?

    THANK YOU Joy.

I'm back again, with a suggestion.

If the dvd has Regional Code Enhancement (RCE), you might try the solution for the problem posted as "UNLOCK REGION CODE FOR PHILIPS DVP3140 DVD PLAYER " , that was listed just after this problem, only set the code as 1 instead of 0.

Don't know if it will work, but it might be worth a shot.

I'm afraid that this is not a solution, but a possible explanation.

It's called Regional Code Enhancement. Some US region 1 dvds have it and they will not work in most multi-region dvd players.

I don't know a lot about it, I've just come across it recently, but unless you can manually switch your dvd player's region code from region 0 to region 1 (and, of course, back to region 0 when you are done watching the dvd), you will not be able to watch some US dvds.

Hi,
Is this a Multi-region Player ?
Some Players are region Set to play Only the region they, are intended For. i.e Region 1 = NTSC( USA ) Region 2 = (PAL ) UK. Region 6 = ( ASIA ) And so on.
If you need a multi-region hack for your player, Post here.
I do charge a Small fee for This service.

    Hi Joy,

    Thankyou for Your Kind Rating.

    It could well be The Actual DVDs Themselves.

    Try 1 in Your Computer, Or In A Different Player.

    Also Check The Undersides Of the Disks.

    I,ve Been Importing-Buying-Selling DVDs for About 2-3 Years Now.

    If i can help, please don,t be afraid to ask.

    Best Wishes mike @ compurepair.

Wrong region


Change your region to multi-region so it can play discs from any region but please check the instruction manual to ensure that changing the region does not void the manufacturers warranty.

Turn the DVD player on, and press "open" on the remote control or on the machine itself.

Press this code into the remote: 789

Press OK, then press 0. A "0" should appear in the lower left side of the screen. For Phillips, zero is the code number for multi-region. In place of the zero, you can also press the number of the specific region you want to play.

Play the disc to check if it works.

Bought it from usa cant get the dvd player to play dvds my daughter has it keeps saying wrong region .how do i fix this.


HELLO

With this unit being from America its probably LOCKED to Region 1 and this means you can only play discs from USA, Canada the US territories and Bermuda. Any other discs will simply not play.

You need what is known as a Region Hack which can usually be done from the remote control handset. However, there are machines out there which CANNOT be hacked via the remote.

I have found this hack, it may work for your machine or it may not!

Power on
Open disc tray
Press stop
(or there may be a button marked CLEAR)
Press 1 3 6 9 0 (the zero being for multi-region play back)
Close disc tray
Power off

Good luck with it (:-)

Trying to play dvd but says wrong region soneynhv-dx350ab?


Hi, if its saying wrong region. then either your player or disk is incompatable. region 1 ntsc ( USA ) Region 2 ( UK ) et,c. check your players region coding is compatable for your country, and that you are also playing a dvd with the same region coding as the player. alternatively is to try and find a region free or multi-region solution.

Wrong Regional Disc.


DVDs are ecoded with region codes to indicate what area of the world they are made for. These codes may be 1,2,3, etc depending on which region they are made for.
DVD player read these codes and if the disc region code does not match the region the device is made for, the player will not play the disc.
Region 1 is for USA so most DVDp players made for use in USA require region 1 discs.
Some DVD players called multi region DVD players can be set to play different region DVDs but they are typically more expr=ensive then one region players and the code must be changed each time a different region disc is played.

HI,
it depends on whether the drive is multi-region ?
Some drives are region Set, i.e Region 1 ( NTSC-USA )
Region 2 ( UK PAL )
Most Players Are Region Set, To the country they are purchased in, you can sometimes set the player to become, multi-region, via various buttons on the remote or by the front panel.
I offer a service to unlock 99% of DVD Players, to play all or many regions.
We do have a charge for this Service.
Many Thanks mike @ Compurepair.
