Sounds like it's the wrong region disc. Try a disc that worked before and if it does than there is nothing wrong with your dvd player it is the disc you are trying to play that has the issue.

SOURCE: need unlock code.

I found this region hack here Sony DVP-NS575P region code , check it out:

"Warning
The following guide describes how I managed to make my Sony DVP-NS705V DVD player multi-region.

There are no guarantees that you will be able to do the same. Be aware that you will probably void any warranty you have and possibly even break the player.

Put shortly, you proceed at your own risk.

Introduction
First of all, the Sony DVP-NS705V can be made multi-region simply by applying appropriate service codes, you do not need to install a so called "mod chip".

This supposedly applies to the entire NS-series of Sony DVD players. There are some encouraging reports out there supporting this, but nothing has been verified by me. Again, if you choose to apply this guide to any DVD player, you do so at your own risk.

If you do find that this procedure works on another model, please drop me a line at sonyhelp@selen.org and let me know. Include the exact model number and original region of your player.

Update: Some users have reported success on the following players:

DVP-F21 (special thanks to Garry Self for this one)
DVP-LS500
DVP-LS755
DVP-LS785
DVP-NC615

RDR-GX7 (thanks to Daniel Tapie)
RDR-GX300

Please note that not all players behave exactly like the NS705. For example, some players do not display "success" when hacked.

Thanks to all who have contributed.

The infrared service codes required to make the update are available on the Internet. Unfortunately, not many people have an appropriate device to enter the codes into. You basically need a programmable remote (Philips Pronto, One-For-All) or a PDA (Palm, iPAQ) with suitable software.

This guide shows you how to make the update with a regular PC equipped with an IRDA port.

The procedure

1. Download the winsamp -package from Blank Frank's site.

http://www.veg.nildram.co.uk/remote.htm

This innovative piece of software allows you to send standard home electronics IR signals using a PC IRDA port.

2. Extract the package onto a bootable DOS floppy disk.

3. Download this IR code

http://www.selen.org/files/REMOTE.TXT

file and place it in the same directory as the package above.

This file holds the five necessary IR codes converted to the format used by Blank Frank's winsamp.exe. Please do not bother Frank with questions concerning this particular procedure.

4. Boot up your PC from the floppy disk and run winsamp.exe.

If your IRDA port doesn't appear as COM2 you may override this by using an appropriate command line switch. For example, use COM1 by running 'winsamp C1'.

5. Press the 'r' key to load up the codes into winsamp.

6. Make sure your DVD player is in standby mode and your IRDA port is within range.

7. Run the IR codes from 1 to 5 by pressing Enter on each corresponding button.

8. Your DVD player should start up and display the text "SUCCESS".

9. Repeat step 7. Your player should return to standby mode.

10.Your player is now multi-region."

SOURCE: wondering why my dvd player

Hi,

This is a common problem on Sony players.The reason with every DVD so far is that they have been PAL (a European format) instead of NTSC (an American format). This is unrelated to the "region" limitations on the disk. It is the actual size in pixels of the picture. This is no fix for the same. The entire thing would have to be re-encoded.

From what I have seen the Sony players adhere stringently to DVD Specs.

That means a NTSC version of the player will not play a PAL disc.
That also means a PAL version of the player will not play a NTSC disc.

It is understandable when you think about the fact that Sony also owns content production. Therefore their player will adhere to region settings and only the supported type of disc, NTSC or PAL.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Why ask me my DVD Playback prohibited by area limitations ??? Pls help me now I wane watch movie thanks


Most DVD players are region-locked, meaning they will only play disks encoded in the location they are from, or disks without region-specific encoding. For example, if I bought a DVD player in Europe and tried to play a disc from the United States, it would not play. Unfortunately, in order to get past the "area limitations" you will either have to buy a DVD encoded in the same format as your DVD player, or set the player to a different region code (which often will lock the player after a certain number of times).

Is there a way to change the region code on a Sony HCD-S300 Please?


Unfortunately, you have a DVD player that is "Region Specific" and cannot be changed. Your system has a region code printed on the back of the unit and will only play DVDs that are labeled with identical region codes. DVDs labeled "ALL" will also play in this unit. If you try to play any other DVD, the message " Playing this disc is prohibited by area limits." will appear on the TV screen. Depending on the DVD, no region code indication may be labeled even though playing is prohibited by area limits.

Dvd player will not play dvd comes up with message "playback prohibited by area limitations"


I don't know where you are, so I will have to speak generally. DVDs made for the USA market will not play in Europe, because they have different area codings. This is about copyright owners controlling copyright. Many DVD players in Europe are actually hacked to get around this.

It isn't just Europe and the USA either, there are several areas that cannot share DVDs across borders.

It would seem that you have got a camera that is set to a different area than your DVD player. That is what is causing this error message. Sometimes you can change one or the other from a menu (you can do this a limited number of times with a DVD disk drive installed in a computer). If it is a stand alone DVD player, I would try to get it hacked to be "region free". Sometimes you can find information about this by searching the web. I can't advise further because you have not given make and model of either your camera or your DVD player, or your location, or where you bought the equipment.

Pinnacle DVD's won't play in DVD players


The region code of your stand alone player is different from the region code on the disk. To resolve this Pinnacle should have an info tool that will allow you to check the region code. If not Nero has this tool available with thier software. You should be able to download it @www.download.com. Also most newer DVD players only read specific data types. For instance, you cant use DVD-RW in a player that only reads DVD-R. So make sure you are using disks that are compatible with your DVD player.

'PLAYBACK PROHIBITED DUE TO AREA LIMITATIONS'


Check area code at your unit and usualy its printed at back side. If your unit belongs to code 1, it will play only region code 1 dvds and so on other codes.
