Hitachi DV-RV8500E(UK) DVD Recorder won't play DVD Region 0

Hello Folks!
I have been given a set of pre-recorded discs - the description says Region 0 - Plays Worldwide. Also says that they are format free DVD-R - plays in both PAL and NTSC DVD players. I was told they would play in anything.

So why won't they play in my Hitachi DV-RV8500E (UK) player .....? Do I have to manually set up/change anything?

Can anybody help please?

SOURCE: Curtis DVD8723UK Wrong Region Problem

This may be of no help to anyone but I have the same problem and I have spoken to Curtis Support today, they say there is no fix, its a fault in the machine and must be returned to the vendor as they have no service network in the UK. I bought mine with a 90 day guarantee off Ebay and it went faulty after 100 days but probably only used for 3 days so I'm stuffed!!!

Region 0 DVD's will not play


I understand that what you call 'region free' is Zero! Therefore this discs you are trying are not zero. Try inputing different numbers to get them to play.

Region Free is a myth!

Selective playing of DVD's on Sharp DVD Recorder


Given that the machine will read disks it has written itself but not play regular discs, I suspect the lens assembly is slightly out of alignment and needs adjusting. This is not normally something you can do at home unless you have the correct test gear. It will need to go to a repair shop. One thing you can try before that is to clean the lens. Buy a quality (Scotch 3M, Philips ) cleaning disc and try it. Could be it's only a speck of dust on the lens.....

Dvd recorder won't play disc


your recorder will normally give you 5 changes at different regions, and on the last region change that is the one that it stays on, although if you you have never changed the region go to> my computer>right click on your dvd drive>properties and on the hardware tab, your hard drive and dvd drive will show, highlight your dvd drive and click properties and click the dvd regions tab and look at the region to see wot its set at, if you still have 5 changes, it should be set at your region one, if there are no changes left you need to search and download a region free dvd programme to allow any region dvd to be played programme

I can't play dvds but I can play copied dvds


Most copied DVD-Videos for home playback use a CSS crack to strip the region code i.e. to Region 0 to they will work in all DVD players.

However most standalone DVD Players can have this restriction lifted using a sequence of codes.

First check your current firmware version to see if you need to upgrade:

1. When TV shows Philips wallpaper, close disc tray with no disc.
2. Press <0>, <0>, <0>, <9>, <OK> on the Remote Control.
Note: In case the firmware version does not appear on the screen, eject and close the disc tray to reset, and try again.

In this case region is 2 (UK) and the firmware is “Feb 23 2007” this is the latest for this DVD VR.

There are other codes that can be used to set this DVD to region 0 it might be a good idea for you do to the same with yours.

Need to play region 1 DVD in region 2


I just got a RH387H in Hong Kong, region 3, but the above method doesn't work, this model has slightly different icon, no "lock" icon, I tried in other similar location but no effect, hopefully someone will provide a method.
