Turn the player on and open the disc tray. Press [CLEAR] followed by [1][3][6][9] and one of the keys [0]...[8] corresponding to the region you want to set the player for (1 for Region 1, 2 for Region 2 and so on, press 0 for Region 0 or Region Free). Turn the player off then on again for the changes to take effect.

To verify the region code, press [SETUP] followed by [1][3][7][9]. A screen will then pop up with the firmware info and the current region code setting. Using [SETUP][1][3][6][9] did not work for me.

Or
To modify the region, turn on the unit and open the disk tray. Using the remote, press [CLEAR][1][3][6][9][zone code] and cycle power on the unit (not necessary to unplug the unit, simply use the front left <POWER> button. Example: Turn on; open tray; [CLEAR] [1][3][6][9][0]; unit OFF, unit ON and you'll get a zone free DVD player.

To confirm the zone code, turn on DVD player, (unit may or may not have a disc, check that the disc tray is closed, and press [SETUP][1][3][7][9]. You'll have all the firmware information (Version xx.xx.xx.xx SUB-VER xx.xx.xx.xx;
8032 xx.xx.xx.xx; Servo xx.xx.xx.xx; RISC xx.xx.xx.xx; DSP xx.xx.xx.xx; Region Code 0) That's that final "0" that you are looking for!

Tip

DVD region code


Generally, your Pioneer DVD 120K player can play any DVDs from your region. As you encounter the situation that can not play the DVD, i guess your DVD from other region. To change the region code of DVD is High-risk operation, it only can be changed less than 5 time, and you are not to recommended to do that. If only for one or several DVD Discs, just remove the DVD region code via a DVD ripper. Of course, if you bought the DVD player from other region, you can change the region code of DVD player permanently.

My cousin bought a Phillips Portable DVD player for my kids. He bought it in America and in South Africa we have a different region code, can I change the region code


Question Can I change the region code on my player so that I can play DVD / Blu-ray disc from other regions? Answer South Africa is region B for Blu-Ray DVD and Region 5 for DVD and finding the procedure will be difficult as international copyright legislation prohibits manufacturers from providing instructions for changing the region code.

MY XV-N352S REFUSES TO PLAY DVD. IT REQUESTS I CHECK THE REGIONAL CODE. ANY SOLUTION? KIMANI NAIROBI KENYA


Hello kimani
My first thought is that you have the wrong region code set in the device manager for your DVD as you probably know dvd's come in region deffinitions 1 for europe and 2 for the americas and suchlike .
Goto Control panel select device manager
select dvd players and then properties ( you do this by right clicking on dvd player or it may give you a property box to click on . ) then select region usually you have 5 chances to set your region before the computer locks you out of any change . change the region to the one for your area i thnk it's region 5 for Kenya and save and close device manager .
If dvd still refuses to play reinstall a player program like powerdvd or windvd to get the drivers running again . ..regards Vortash

Changing the region code


Hi,

You can only change the region code a few times (usually 5), so I wouldn't do it. You should leave the current player at region 1, and buy and install another DVD player and set it to region 4, then you will have 1 for each region you want.

5. Use the numeric keypad to select your region code number (0 – 6).

OR

DVD224 (224SS)
1. Open the DVD tray
2. Press STOP button of remote control
3. Press the digit number buttons “2008” of remote control.
4. Press MENU
Region code will appear, select your region code number.

Invlaid region code


Sounds like you are trying to play a DVD of a different region to that of the player.

Worldwide region codes, sumarised:

1 - US / Canada

2 - Europe

3 - Asia

4 - Australia

5 - Africa

6 - China

You can change the region code of the DVDR520H to any region or use region 0, which makes the unit multi-region to play DVDs from any region.

  1. Go into the main menu
  2. Highlight the exit button
  3. Type 2960

    This should give you access to a hidden menu form where you can change the region code.

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!
