I have a Sampo DVD player model DVE-611. I was told that it would play DVDs from any region. Recently I purchased several DVDs from England that are not available in the states. They don't play. What do I need to do?
I called Regent and the person who answered to phone told me Regent bought the building and Sampo he cannot provide me with technical support.

from this am not able to know which model is in uer hand almost all dvd players have a facility to change the region code, u can change uer region code from 2 to zero surely all the dvds play in that player,
It's interesting that your DVD player was purchased in Russia but plays Region 1 DVDs. Region 1 is North America. Does your Player also play Russian DVDs (region 5)? If so, then it has probably been modified to play DVDs from multiple regions.
Check the back side of the DVD player - the rear panel should have a Region number on it. If the region number is 1, then try playing a Region 5 DVD. If it reads the DVD, then the modification that was done in Russia will probably allow it to read any DVD. IF the Region 5 DVD won't play (or if it is ejected automatically), then your player's region control os still intact, and it will only play DVDs from the same region as the one listed on the rear panel of the player (or DVDs marked "ALL").
I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
