Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. It’s not easy to make the DVD Player region free however, you can try these two options to make it region free:

To start with turn on the player with disc as source and then press: Play 159 023 793 90 Play

If that does not work then try these step by step instructions:

1. Press DVD "OPEN/CLOSE" key (RM (remote Control) or main set) to open the DVD door (note: if no disc on tray, then no need to open the door);
2. Press RM "SYSTEM" key to enter DVD system setup menu;
3. Press RM "direction "key to highlight the forth item "PREFERENCE PAGE" (not entering the sub-item);
4. Press RM numeric key sequentially 811502(entry code, no display on TV);
5. Press RM "down direction" or "up direction" key to change REGION CODE,"0" is all code.
6. Press RM "OK" key to confirm.
7. Press RM "SYSTEM" key to exit DVD system setup menu


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

    I just bought a philips hts3510 home cinema and i just found out that it doesnt take any dvds with region 1. Is this the fact that these years such dvd players do not support multi region dvds?? Im very...


    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD_region_code

    "The commercial DVD player specification requires that a player to be sold in a given place not play discs encoded for a different region".

    If you don't live in Region 1 and you know most DVD's ARE Region 1, it would make sense that some care should be taken to buy DVD's compatible with YOUR region.

    Hi i have bought a dvd and comes up saying wrong region how can i fix this


    DVD players usually are locked to a Region code and cannot play DVDs from other regions unless the DVD player has its firmware changed to Region Free.
    To change your DVD player to Region Free, please check out these WEB sites :-

    Want to unlock Philips DVD player (DVP320)


    Did you follow these instructions exactly? If you pressed 9990, as you mentioned, it will not work. You need to press 99990. Do you see region "0" on the display?

    start the player without any DVD in it.
    open the lid.
    while the lid is open press 9,9,9,9,0
    you should see region 0 displayed.
    close the lid.

    Your DVD player is now region free.

    note:
    replace 0 with 1 to 6 at to set the wanted region number if needed.

    The PET702 will be a region 5 machine, whereas the UK DVDs are region 2.

    DVD players from a particular region are designed to play only DVDs from the same region, due to copyright and distribution rights in each country or region.

    However the PET702 can have the region protection removed by making it multi-region:

    Switch on the PET702 and Open the tray.

    Press SETUP button on the remote control, which will bring up the menu.

    Highlight "PREFERENCES" and press OK.

    Press [2], [5], [2], [3], [1], [5], [LEFT], [DOWN]

    The screen will show: "Region Code: 2"
    Press [1-6] to manually set the region OR [0] for multi-region.
    coolsmiley.gif
    Press [SETUP] to exit winksmiley.gif

    You will now be able to play DVDs from anywhere in the world.

    This is particularly useful, because region 1 DVDs from the US often come out when the movies are still in the cinemas over here. Region 1 DVDs can be bought perfectly legally by mail order or from the internet.
