Question about Philips DVP3140
Player will not play a region 1 dvd from the USA please could you explain what might have gone wrong.
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.

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.

I do charge a Small fee for This service.
