Question about Denon Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

Unlock code for Denon DVD 1103

We purchased our DVD player while living in China 3 years ago, and now on our return to Australia, we are unable to play Australian DVD's.   The local Denon store advised us we would need to send the player to Japan!! I was wondering if anyone could possibly help with an unlock code which would allow us to continue to use this player?
Many thanks and regards, Cathy

SOURCE: The DVD player does not recognize disks that it used to play before.

It sounds like the DVD region (a setting in both your OS and your DVD hardware) may have been changed. DVD regions are the agreed upon method (by entertainment companies, hardware manufacturers and governments) to limit cross-border sharing of media. Most valid (read: non-pirated) DVDs have a region code. Your DVD drive will only play DVDs with a region code that matches the DVD region code set on the DVD drive.

You didn't mention your OS but if you are running Windows XP then go to Start->Control Panel->System->System->Hardward->Device Manager and find your DVD player. Right-click the DVD player and select Properties from the menu and you should see a properties dialog-box with a DVD region tab. This is where you can change the DVD region that your player will recognize. Be careful, don't play around here, most DVD players have an embedded limit on the number of times (4-or-so) the DVD region can be changed.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: denon udcm m7 cd player often reads ERR on play and eject

Try cleaning the laser first. Take care, because it is delicate.

Some instructions of how to clean a CD laser:
http://www.wikihow.com/Clean-a-CD-Player

If the cleaning does not fix the fault, it is possible that the laser is weak, or there are some problems in the electronics in the CD player. This is not something you will be able to service yourself, unless you are properly trained, have experience, and have the proper setup to perform CD player servicing.

In most cases these CD players are not cost effective to service. You can contact the orignal manufacture for details or any recomendations.

SOURCE: DVD code

I just figured mine out. You need to enter 138931 when you get to the preference menu. It will then show the region. Use the up/down button to select '0'. This will unlock the DVD. Make sure there is no disc in the player, or you cannot access the preference menu. Hope this helps

SOURCE: denon seperates

The most likely cause of this problem is the laser is becoming weak. You may be able to get a bit more service out of it by manually cleaning the laser with a cotten bud and some alcohol. However the only real solution is to replace the laser assembly.

It depends on how good at taking things apart and putting them back together you are, weather you should try this yourself. The laser assemblies often have the part number on the side of them, if not you will need to contact Denon who may tell you what it is if you are lucky.

Almost all laser assemblies come fully clibrated and all you need to do is remove the old one and replace it with a new one. You can get the parts from CPC in the UK unfortunately I don't know about other countries.

How do you unlock region code on Samsung BD-H6500 smart blue- ray player


The hack for this 3D Blu Ray player is the same as for previous models.

1. Make sure NO disc or usb stick is inserted into the player.
2. Turn on your your blu ray player.
3. When the main menu appears, press the REPEAT button followed by the region code your player is currently locked to - depending on which country
you are in (eg: in Australia press "REPEAT 7 6 8 8 4".
4. In the top right corner you will see your region code flash (eg: 4 for Australia).
5. Press 9.
6. Turn off and on and your BD-E6500 is now region free.

How this differs from the opening post is no need to open and close the disc tray.


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

So, after pressing REPEAT please enter one of the following codes the matches your current region lock:

1 - 2 9 3 3 4 (US)
2 - 5 7 5 3 8 (Europe)
3 - 5 6 7 3 2 (South East Asia)
4 - 7 6 8 8 4 (Australia / South America)
5 - 5 3 8 1 4 (India, Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, Africa)
6 - 2 4 4 6 2 (China)

9 - Region Free

Then press '9' and your player is region free.

Unlock region sony sr170


When a DVD disc is created, it is encoded with a "Region number." The disc will only play on DVD players with the same Region number - for instance, a Region 3 disc won't play on a Region 1 player.
Region 1: U.S. and U.S. Territories, Canada
Region 2: Japan, Western Europe, Middle East, South Africa
Region 3: South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Southeast and East Asia Region 4: New Zealand, Australia, Pacific Islands, Mexico, Central/
South America
Region 5: Russia and the former Soviet Union, Africa, Indian
subcontinent, North Korea Region 6: China

Most DVD players allow one change. So if you buy a region 1 player and live in region 3 you can change the region to 3. But if you return to region 1 you can't switch back.
If you have a computer and a toaster to burn your DVD's, there are program m's that can rip a DVD to a folder on your computer and then recode the files to a DVD that has no region.
If you have lots of DVD's it would be wiser to rip the DVD to the PC, remove the region code and put the content on a media player.
In a few years you can't buy DVD's. Perhaps some blue ray DVD with 4K or 8K HD will exist for a while, but ???

Multi region code


An option. 
 Download DVD fab or another like product which takes off the region code completely using a PC then copy the DVD onto another DVD using the DVD burner,or find someone who can do this for you.
