Question about Philips PET710 Portable DVD Player

Wrong Region Cant get a foreign dvd to play, it says wrong region

  • Anonymous Apr 08, 2008

    Thank you, B. L. Kaplan, your advice worked on my PET710 (at least for dvds Region 1 and 2). I am a little worried though. A friend of mine told me some time ago that after he had changed his portable reg 2 Philips (not this model but a newer one) region free, it was OK for a couple of months but then he started to have problems (reg 1 dvds did not show well, sometimes any region dvds did not play etc.). Has anybody long-time experience of PET710 which has been modified?

Your cd's may be region free but dvd's unless stated as region free will only play on a player that is capable of playing the region shown on the dvd unless you have a region free dvd player.

Says wrong region with some dvd's


Check the owner's manual to see what region your dvd player is for. What ever that region is is the only region it will play.

Example: If you have a region 1 dvd player and a region 4 dvd, it will not play on that player. The regions must match. The dvd usually has the region it is for listed on the back of the dvd case near the bottom.

Also, Any dvd's that are Region 0 or are labelled "Region Free" will play on any player.

Wrong region


HELLO!
On the face of this problem it sounds like the machine is set to a region other than the discs you're trying to play. Here is something that might just help you.
To multi-region your machine:

press Setup
select the Preference Tab
Press 1,3,8,9,3,1
Press up/down key to select "0"
and press menu to exit.

This way you are telling the machine to look for ALL regions. I hope this is the answer for you.
ALL THE BEST!

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 region


check with another dvd you know the region.
check same dvd on another (not region 2) player and see if itsn't working.
find if you have to follow special instruction to activate the "all region"feature.
find on line instructions do remove the region lock.
confirm make /model/ sn where you bought it and I can help to find instruction.

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.
