The Country Code is just related to the Subtitles etc and nothing to do with the Region.
Most DVD Players/Recorders are set to Play the Region of DVD from the Country they were purchased from. Only some are Region Free (will play DVDs from any Country) when purchased.
Some DVD Players/Recorders can be changed to Region Free by simply entering a code on the Remotes handset or by following instructions to enter a Service Menu and change it their.
Unfortunately yours can only be changed by updating the Firwmare which is a risky and difficult process even if you know what you're doing. I wouldn't advise anyone to try it without previous experience as you could render your DVD Player/Recorder useless.
The region code is locked after playing 5 DVD's. This prevents you from buying DVD's from a less expensive region.... You could try and find a hack for your player on the internet, but beware of scammers asking for money for the info.
Somebody changed the country code on that player. BTW, it is illegal to change the country code on a DVD player. I would call JVC and see if they can fix it - usually they wouldn't, but since your player clearly has a 1 on the back, then they may have a solution.
The following is for illustrative purposes - these are NOT the codes/procedures to unlock your JVC - I merely post them to show you how one might go about changing the codes on your JVC player - once again, this is not the right procedure for your particular JVC player: To select an alternative region for this player:
Press the Power button on the player to turn it off.
Wait 5 seconds.
Press and hold the buttons DVD Menu and On Screen on the player together, and then press the Power button on the player to turn it back on.
Release the DVD Menu and On Screen buttons.
Press the Standby button on your player, the display should now show either "TEST 2", "TEST 4" or "TEST 6" depending on the player region.
Press the DVD Menu button on your player twice in a row, the display should now show "000 5858".
By pressing the Up and Down cursors buttons, change the first three digits until they read "02E".
By pressing the Right and Left cursors buttons, change the last four digits until they read "0000" for Region Free, "0101" for Region 1, "0202" for Region 2, "0404" for Region 4.
If you experience difficulties with Region 4 discs, change the above setting to "0458" and make sure that PAL or NTSC is correctly set on your player.
Press the Enter button on your player to confirm the region change.
Press the Standby button on the player to turn it off.
Wait 5 seconds.
Press the Standby button on the player to turn it on.
1. Turn the unit on and open the tray. Take out any disc from the tray. 2. Enter the code 98790 on the remote and press Ok. The 0 on the end is the region. Eg to change it back to a region follow step 1 and enter the code 98794. 4 being the region code in this example. 3. To check the region code follow step 1 and enter the code 966.
I picked up a LG DV276 DVD Player here in Australia but I am from the
United States so I own region 1 DVDs. I unlocked my new player by
instead 1. Open the tray. 2. Press 0 0 0 0 on the remote and a Menu
will appear. 3. Press 0 for region free. 4. Press pause and power off.
I can play everything now, Aussie and US DVDs. Thanks LJ66.
