First, since you are using a Recorder not just a player, the consequences of changing the region are many. Anything recorded will now be coded for the new region and will only play on that devices coded for that region. So....I would A. Play the DVD on your computer which is easily manipulated for region code changes.( http://www.videohelp.com/play)
Or B) Change the code on a player only.
OR C) The third option is to rip the DVD via computer freeware such as DVDshrink and designate the region you desire when doing so. You can then easily burn the DVD copy with the "correct" region.
Hope this helps.

    It depends on the player some will play region free DVDs most will not.

Capello DVD player bought at target dvd keeps saying no disc when disc is in machine


First off straight out of the box mine didnt work. So no check should be needed considering it was bought brand new. Target replaced it. This one worked for one day. It was for my daughter as a birthday present amd she isnt able to evn watch a movie. Its pathetic to pay 30 dollars on plastic shaped tp be something it isnt. Now I have bought my daughter a tv with built in dvd player. Your company is a joke. To say any different would be inaccurate.

Any way of dissabling the DivX code so I can Play My own DivX dvd's?


No! these units are pre-programed from the factory, you would need to go online to LG and contact customer support and the technical department to see if this is possible.

Toshiba DVR610 suddenly will not power up, no lights, no sound, nothing. Any ideas? Thanks.


Check the fuse and diodes. If fuse is not blown check for open resistors in the power supply area of your DVR. The problem will most likely be in the power supply section of your DVR

Just got this Toshiba DVR620KU and need to record from home movie VHS to DVD. Have DVD-R, I have set the time, have it on the program VHS to DVD, I start the VHS, put it on pause. Go DVD, select rec...


Good one!

Sounds like you are doing everything right. Only things I can think of are:

- Make sure the disc is a blank one.
- Try a different disc.
- Make sure the tape you are trying to dub is not encoded with Macrovision copyguarding. If it is a home-made recording then you are OK, but a factory recording on a store bought tape may cause some difficulties.

If you are still having troubles try a complete 15 minute reset by unplugging from the power source.

Good luck!

I have a Philips DVDR 3575H. using Comcast's


Try this set up-

Use an RCA audio/video cable for this set up (Yellow/Red/White).

Connect from the Video out (Yellow) connection on the back of the cable box to the Video in on the back of the DVR.

Connect the audio (Red/White) cables from audio out connection on the back of the cable box to the "Audio in" on the back of the DVR.

This should still get you a decent picture but not a true HD picture for your recordings.

When you set the timer to record set it to record either E1 or E2 depending on which input you connected the cable box to and ensure that the cable box is tuned to the channel you wish to record.

*** NOTE: If you keep the HDMI cable connected as you have for the cable box and watch normal TV through the HDMI input on the TV you will get HD programming for your general viewing but still have the option to record with the DVR at a lower quality. ***

Good Luck and please rate this solution....

Toshiba dvr will load some dvds & not others


My machine has also done this since it was new. I was just about to bring it in for repair when I thought I would try one more thing. I turned on the recorder. I put in the movie that would not play and let it load (of course it would not load). I pushed the on/off button on the recorder and held it down until the "wait" message came up on the display. After the message disappeared I turned the recorder back on. To my surprise the movie loaded and played. I tried all the other movies I had trouble with and they also played. I hope this helps. I saved my self over 200 dollars in repair bills. I was quite surprised at the lack of help from toshiba.

How can I unlock my dvd player to play American dvds please?


I think it is against the law for shops in the UK to sell multi-region DVD players. I could not find a hack for this player that worked.
It is possible to convert it on your PC and burn it as a region free Disc.
